Nice environment and great food. My mom and I have the taco salad, which was really good. My husband had the steak Colorado. The steak was seasoned very nicely.

They have the best Chili Colorado and Salsa on the planet. I see a few complaints and I don't know why. They must have been there on one of their very worst days, or either are just the complaining type person. The parking lot is always full, the service is always second to none and it doesn't matter how busy... More

We are a bit spoiled living in Texas with so many good options for Tex-Mex and Mexican food. My wife and I stopped at El Sombrero based on T.A. reviews and a local suggestion. The service and food were good and on par with similar chain Mexican food restaurants... nice selection, good food, but not spectacular. The Queso Fundido and... More

I have eaten every Mexican dish I can imagine, but this was inedible. I could only eat the rice after trying the Chile Relleno, salsa?, and Flauta that looked like an enchilada. Everything was very sweet? The waiter didn't know what Green Chile was, so I was a bit skeptical right off the bat. Also, the couple next to me... More

Wonderful service. Good texmex food. Large Dos Equis draft very refreshing after long road trip. Large, varied menu. Everything we had was delicious. Enchiladas, flautas (taquitos on menu), tamale. Chips and salsa. Will be back when we are stopping in Vicksburg.

We were sent there by the Motel front desk with the comment "Best Mexican Restaurant in Vicksburg". If that is so no more Mexican in Vicksburg for us. They had a new waitress who confused order after order. In our case she mistook the Dinner items for Lunch items at 8 o'clock at night. Upon receiving the wrong food I... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn next door. It was late on a sunday and this was one of the few places open on a sunday night and it was packed. My sister and I both had the Quail. Two quail, vegetables, guacamolie, beer, and chips. We could not eat it all. The prices are very reasonable $55 for the... More

I generally do not eat Mexican food but my wife does and so we went here. I ordered a chicken salad. Not very "Mexican" but it was an excellent dish. Very large portion, lots of chicken and cheese and fresh lettuce. It tasted really, really good. The only negative were the tomatoes. They were just like the crappy tomatoes you... More
