Ate here due to its proximity to the Holiday Inn where we were staying overnight. The restaurant was packed, so we took that as a good sign. Nice décor with the restaurant being divided into sections which would be good on quieter evenings, in that it would not be apparent if the restaurant was half empty. The menu seemed extensive but, as we don't normally eat Mexican food, we were slightly lost.

My choice was pretty successful but my husband's was a bit "gloopy". The waiter was very friendly and helpful although I think there were inconsistencies on this front, as we spoke to other customers who said their waiter/waitress was very offhand.

Overall it was an enjoyable experience, but probably not one which would have us rushing back.

We enjoyed El Sombrero's food, atmosphere and the service was very good. I had the chile rellenos and they were awesome! Worth a trip and located conveniently next to the Holiday Inn Vicksburg. Thanks for a good experience!

The food and service were both very good. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful inside and out. I ate in but my husband ordered takeout so he could re-warm and eat later. Unfortunately, the takeout was in aluminum pans and since we were traveling, we didn't have anything to transfer it to, to reheat in the motel room microwave. I guess we should've checked before we left the restaurant?

It was conveniently located opposite the Holiday Inn. It was a typical Mexican restaurant and so we went for fajitas with beef, chicken and shrimp. Good size portions and plenty of salad and usual fillings. Good substantial food, well cooked and the service was good, friendly and attentive. Excellent value for money.
