My first visit to a Mexican restaurant, I usually order the Arroz con Pollo to see how it stacks up to others. If it passes my test, I will try other items on follow up visits. This restaurant has multiple locations, but I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. In fact, their service is also superior to the other Mexican food restaurants in the area. I highly recommend them.

Against my better judgement, I ate dinner here when I was too tired from a long day on the road. Even with low expectations going in, I was very disappointed.
The Carne Asada was tough and tasteless. The chile relleno was a gooey mess of melted cheese and not much chile. The ground beef filling in the enchilada was truly awful. All in all, probably the worst Mexican I have had.

This was the usual fare; nothing impressive at all. I had enchiladas dripping in cheese. Had to remind the staff to bring the guacamole. My mother-in-law who is from Texas complained there was no flavor to the food. My husband got the Arroz con Chipolte which he said was good but not a reason to return.

My husband & I had a delicious meal here. The decor was very nice. The restaurant clean. The staff was friendly. The service was great. They brought us a whole pitcher of water with the chips & salsa. They asked twice if we would like more chips when they saw we were getting low. My meal was a shredded beef chimi plus a chili relleno. Both were delicious although I could only eat about 1/2 of my meal as it was a large platter of food w/beans & rice. They served it w/a good helping of fresh guacamole (delicious) & sour cream. The flavor was so good. The ranchero sauce served over the chili relleno was outstanding in my opinion. Not heavy & was delicately flavored so as not the cover the other flavors, just enhance them. My husband had a chicken fajita platter & thought it was delicious. The portion was large & very well seasoned. Not sure why some negative reviews as our meal was wonderful. Next time in Walla Walla, we will certainly visit this place again! Also, please note, there were a lot of locals eating here. That should be a good sign!

We had dinner at El Sombrero and the food was reasonable but completely unremarkable. My wife had a margarita and potato skins, which she enjoyed. I had a salad with finely cut steak. The salad was fresh but there was absolutely no seasoning.
