Clean bright facility, friendly waitstaff, food so so but not objectionable. Absolutely terrible management. Group of 8 with 6 ordering various combo plates all of which included 2 Sopaipillas. When asked where they were, we we told that they "were all out". asked for an adjustment to the bill and were told that since they were "complimentary" there would be... More

This is my second visit in the past two months. My daughter and I ate here in January of this year and then again this past Saturday. The January visit was excellent in all respects of table services, great customer service upon entering the restaurant and when leaving. Food was hot in temperature and fresh. Beans tasted like beans, lettuce... More

We had a fabulous waiter and excellent food. It was a chance to sample some New Mexico specialities in addition to more standard tex-mex fare. Everything was tasty, and the staff paid close attention to the food allergies in our group. Highly recommend!

The salsa was good with fresh cilantro. The plate was your typical rice and beans arrangement. The chile rellenos were a little soggy but edible.

I was driving on the interstate and stopped here for lunch on Christmas eve. I really loved the different atmosphere in the restaurant. It certainly has a small town restaurant feel! The menu seems to suggest a rich variety of items to choose from. My Sopaipillas were hot and delicious! I also ordered a Chimichanga made with chicken. Barring the... More

We had a group of 10 people that came in for dinner after doing photography at Bosque del Apache. We had made reservations for the group so they put us in the back room. The place is nicely decorated but the room was very chilly. Two of the people had been there before and really liked the place. Flour tortilla... More

Because the dining options in Socorro are quite limited, I along with three other individuals opted for dinner at this restaurant. When one of my friends ordered a margarita, he was told that they were out of that along with most of the other alcoholic beverages. Although the menu was extensive and the food portions were very generous, the quality... More

Excellent Mexican restaurant, great selection of classics, something for everyone. Good selection of beer and the chilli is local. Been here a number of times and it never disappoints.

A group of us ate dinner at El Sombrero recently. When we arrived the hostess said "just go find a table for 5", well there were none, only four tops. Then when ordering margaritas we were told "we are out of margarita mix". Really, a Mexican restaurant that is out of margarita mix?? Then when we ordered fajitas, we had... More
