Everyone locally knows about El Som. Many people, including us, go there weekly. Raul, the owner will make you feel welcome along with everyone that works there. The salsa is the best I've had anywhere in the US plus really cold beer and great food.

Good Mexican food served quick. If you want good Mexican food in Hermosa go here! Chicken tacos with rice and beans was my choice today. Did not disappoint. Chips and salsa is fine....average.

Great food and service! Prices amazing. Fish tacos was my favorite. We arrived 20 min before closing, we felt bad and apologized for this. The owner was incredibly kind and welcoming stating, "this is your home, come whenever you want".
