The best Mexican food in East Texas. I always sit with either Rhoda, Robert (aka Batman), or Irving, and I always get great service. Don't even get me started on their white queso....it is to die for!

They have went seriously down hill. We have been going here for many years. The last couple years they have went very down hill. Service lately, sucked. Portion size lately, sucked. Quality of food lately, sucked.

El Sombreo, or "The Hat" as locals call it, is a notch above a lot of other Tex-Mex restaurants. You'll find a lot of the standards, but also more traditional Mexican dishes. I have not been disappointed by any of the dishes I've tried. My current favorite is the shrimp sincronizada. Fresh guacamole is always excellent too.

The food is always excellent. It always has a lot of people but once you're in there, your treated special and the food comes out in a decent amount of time. Tried many different things and never found something I didn't like. Great local spot to eat.
