My daughter & I went here for dinner expecting a fun experience, as we have had in the past, but we were disappointed. First clue was that it was a ghost town in there—very few tables filled. Next, the waitress brought us chips & salsa...More

Food is great and the staff is awesome, but the owner leaves a lot to be desired. I would certainly think twice before booking Eddie's Sombrero for a function. My fiancé and I love Mexican cuisine, culture and even got engaged in Mexico, so we...More

This used to be our second home, then Eddie's uncle took over when Eddie passed away, and things have progressively gone downhill. Firstly, Gabby left, and he was a crucial element to this restaurant. Secondly, the food and bar service began to decline. Finally, Alex...More
