Pretty good place. Although the menu is kind of sparse of the traditional mexican dishes. It needs more of a selection. Good bar. Karaoke on Saturday nights 7pm.

El Sombrero has been there a long time and is under new ownership as of 2015 I think. Don't let the location or the funky decor fool you, this is really good Mexican food. Burritos and the chicken enchiladas are my favorite. The green sauce...More

Food was tasted like what you would buy in a grocery store frozen section or from a can. Nothing authentic with any of it - the salsa, the rice, the beans, all horrible. Even the enchilada sauce was basic red sauce out of a can....More
