“They use white cheese!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

El Sombrero is known for using white cheese. It's delicious if you haven't tried it before! I've enjoyed everything I've had here, from fish tacos to carne guisada.

“My New Favorite Mexican Food Restaurant”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Celebrated my last birthday at the Longview location. Excellent service and food. So glad they have opened up in Hallsville now. Service and food are equally good there as well. :)

“Good food/Poor Service”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The white queso dip is the best around these parts. Fajita nachos are so good you will want to relive eating them for days! But the service and cashier are usually rather blah and not very attentive. I only go when I need a Queso fix!

“Our longview favorite”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

This Mexican is still our favorite in town. Allways fast, reliable, consistent service. Food is allways piping hot. Sometimes on the weekends they have a gentleman walking around singing and playing the guitar. My favorite is the shrimp quesadilla and white queso cheese!
