I'm from small town California, and I know Mexican food! When I heard of "El Sombrero", and walked in to see only wait staff that didn't look like they could say hello in Spanish, I rolled my eyes and sat down, ready for blahhh. Much...More

I absolutely love going to this place. Their Mama's Burrito is outstanding, and they refill your chips and salsa free of charge. The service is almost always fast and friendly, except when it's extremely busy, but then it's understandable.
