Nice place. Good appetizers and loved the jalaberry margarita! The jalapeños are so fresh and delicious. The shredded chicken is so wonderful too!

This a rather noisy place which serves enormous portions of largely Mexican-type dishes. The food is average, but the margaritas were great. The service is also above average.More

This place had such good food drinks and service! Such a wonderful meal and atmosphere after a busy few days of vacation! Little pricier than we are use to but it was worth it! Yum!

Here for work training and we were craving a mellow environment with good Mexican food. It was delicious and the customer service from our waitress was top notch. Food was hot and fresh, and the beverages cold. We will definitely return!

Went with a group for dinner. I had fish tacos which were delicious. The margarita was tasty also. It was quite loud in the restaurant so conversations were somewhat difficult. Service was great and everyone seemed to like what they ordered.

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.
