Any of the three locations are well served. The smaller on over in the old Publix lot seems to have the best tasting food, why, I do not know. But it is always a clear winner at each site,

Chips and salsa always good, but cheese dip very watered Down! Bathrooms dirty for a Friday evening at 630 pm. Also faucet broken and water would not turn off.

I liked the Mexican atmosphere and the staff were more than helpful. The food portions are fantastic for the price you pay. Some foods are a bit spicy so make sure you ask when you order which is spicy or not. They have 3 locations but I like the one on Fair Rd the best

Moved my daughter in to Georgia Southern this past week end. After a long, HOT move in day on Friday, we went to El Sombrero for dinner. The place was packed, but they got us in and out in no time. The food was fantastic and the service was great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

The food overall was average. The salsa had almost no flavor. It appeared to be very clean even during a busy lunch. The service was excellent.

If you're looking for GOOD, top notch Mexican food, in a beautiful restaurant, this is the place! Look for the golden dome-you'll find fine dining on both the main floor and upper level. Great service every time we go. Our friends and family love this place, we know that you will too!

Every time we are In Statesboro we visit El Som. Good basic Mex - generous portions (will frequently share a single order of fajitas with my wife), good guacamole, and spicy salsa. Good happy hour drink specials too.

Thank johnlh376
