hit or miss place.
We've loved the food and, at times, it feel short. We've had great tequila drinks, but at time, that too fell short.
I have not figured it out, maybe what Chef is on? but looks like staffing is important at El Sombrero's
Price is fair - portions are good. You'll usually take some to go.
Atmosphere is above average. They were always very polite and welcoming.
I would recommend this place. Keeping in mind that I am not a Mexican person.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Locals get a taste of Mexico at the New England eatery that offers happy hour, traditional cuisine and affordable prices.
YUMMY.... everything is so yummy in EL Sombrero...You are never left hungry after a visit...take out to go is excellent service too!!!
Mexican - I don't think so. This is a long standing Mexican restaurant that could only survive here in the northeast. The salsa was on a par with what you can find on your local grocer's shelves. Our enchiladas suizas (chicken filled with tometillo (sic) sauce) to the pescada Santa Fe (broiled scrod with gallic and spices) entrees were each flavorless. The latter was listed as a house specialty.
We're not in Arizona anymore. First of all, I would like to start off by saying that we moved from AZ knowing in advance that there was likely no legitimate Mexican cuisine in the Northeast. We have not been proved wrong thus far. We went to El Sombrero as a last ditch effort and were completely dissatisfied. The salsa is nothing more than ketchup with cilantro. Yuck!!! Ground beef tacos, with salt as the chief spice? Retarded. The "Mexican food" is a joke. Number of Mexican beers on tap: zero. Please. For Pete's sake, the combination number four ("cuatro" en espanol) was spelled with a Q. Couldn't you even hire someone from near Mexico to spellcheck the menu? I implore you, if you have never left sight of the Atlantic, do yourself a favor and hop on a plane to the southwest, or better yet, south of the border.
el sombrero. the food is absolutely amzing. it's a little mom and pop type operation. the atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. it's a great family restaurant with authentic live music with a little mariachi band. all the food is handmade fresh, including the complimentary chips and salsa. the bar is a nice little niche for drinks after work or a total blast for a night out on the town.
Awesome Salsa. If you like Mexican Food - this is a Great Place to Go - There House Specials are Fantastic - Full Flavor - Nice and Spicy - they are very accomidating to any Special requests - Hotter-Milder - None of this - More of that - we have never had a request rejected - and becareful and not fill up on the Salsa and Chips they give you when you are seated - they are Great
