Nice restaurant, great food but the service is lacking. I have visited this place several times and it never fails.

Being gluten free, Mexican food is almost always a safe option. So, when traveling in Grundy, VA, I tried this restaurant. I ordered the combination fajitas (I can't remember the name for them). They were fair. Very very salty. We ordered guacamole and cheese dip. The guacamole was runny. Now, I'm not exactly sure how you would even make guac... More

Great food with wide variety of choices to choose from. The staff is very friendly. Their drink selection is great too, they make a great Blue Motorcycle!

Went there for dinner. I could not get over how cheap the prices were, so I was expecting sub par food. NOT TRUE. My daughter said it was the best chicken quesadilla she has ever had and she has had quite a few in her life. I had a combination plate with a taco, burrito and enchilada. The sauce was... More

This restaurant had great Mexican food and great drinks. I did think it was a little bit pricey but the food was delicious.

Had eaten here before and was impressed. Went again and left very disappointed. Waiters acted as if we were an inconvenience, food was subpar,and portions were very small. Don't know if they were just having a bad evening but I'm about afraid to risk it again This restaurant was amazing on my first trip. I would have rated it a... More

El Sombrero's menu states that it is the best Mexican restaurant in town. That's only in towns without another Mexican restaurant. The menus offers familiar fare but not made with care nor quantity. The enchiladas barely have anything in them. The same for the burritos. The guacamole is tasteless. The rice is overcooked. The refried beans are without beans (I... More

Family went for supper on a Friday afternoon. Order was wrong. When we ask where rest of our order was we was told that we didn't order that and was rude. We order guacamole and when it came it looked like it was only about 2 tablespoons in the bowl. Very dissatisfied.

During a resent school reunion we dropped in on this place several times with groups numbering from 4 to 30. Each time the staff was pleasant and friendly. We were waited on quickly and the food arrived hot and fast. Even when there were a lot of us the staff handled it with flare and style. The food was fresh... More

My fellow colleges stopped here for dinner.The overall looks of this place ,is not bad.There food here was pretty good, being that this place is in the mountain terrain. They do serve alcohol here,this is a dry county.
