Certainly not a top 250/3300 restaurant. For the convenience to the local hotels it’s a good choice but the food is average at best. That’s the only reason I share a 3/5 rather than a 1 or 2. Try the punch bowl. You’ll be happy...More

The Urban Sombrero in Denver serves more than great Mexican food, we're also a passionate Sports Bar, where residents from Denver and beyond have come to cheer on their favorite team, or to drown out the sorrows of their losses. Our menu includes a wide variety of new and traditional Mexican fare, including Burritos, Chimichangas, Carnitas and more. Our burger selection features 1/2 lb grass fed beef, paired with high quality ingredients. You really can't go wrong, a solid selection of Mexican food, flowing beer and Margaritas, and large TV's, nowhere else really compares.
