Good service and decent pricing. Will definitely come again next time I’m in the area. They have an upstairs bar area if you are looking to skip dinner and enjoy cocktails and conversation. Dinner was served in a decent amount of time after ordering and...More

Statesboro locals love El Som. However, I think it is just average. The food/service is not bad, but it is not exceptional either.

Great food and good service. Atmosphere is very authentic. Meals are served hot and aromatic. I love munching on the free nachos and salsa while waiting on food.

We had a party of 11. Waitress did not write down our orders. Very impressed when it all came out fine. Food was good! Kids were happy. We'll be back!

This is a big place (but doesn't feel like it) so even when it is busy you are seated pretty quickly. Fast though not particularly friendly service. Ample portions. Predictably good Anglo-Mexican fare. The salsa is tasty. The restrooms I find usually need servicing.
