Simple and not real big, but friendly staff and cheap prices. Food is good and service is too. Usually under $10/person or so. Never had to wait to be seated although usually fairly busy. Been several times, never a problem.

I will return even though it is several hours drive. When I crave Mexican food from now on, it will be El Sombrero. If Juan is working, you cannot go wrong with Juan as... More

Music wasn't too loud. They had different types of sauces for the chips. Food came out on time, not too fast and not to long. And the waitress explained what was in the dish I ordered.

We stopped as we were passing through town trying to find something to eat before everything closed down. We made a great choice! Had a Steak Quesadilla and the Pollo ala Parilla. Both were excellent! We also ordered cheese dip which was very good (white cheese). We travel frequently and stop at plenty of Mexican Restaurants. This was up there... More

On our way home from the lake and stopped here for lunch. Really good Mexican food and great service with a smile. Food was delicious and price was right also. If in Lebanon I would highly recommend this place.
