“Good Pollo a la Plancha, ok Chile Relleno at El Sombrero”
Review of El Sombrero

El Sombrero
Ranked #21 of 139 Restaurants in Vicksburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Had dinner with my husband at El Sombrero. He had the Pollo a la Plancha which was served with corn tortillas and was well seasoned and moist. I had a flautas, burrito and chile relleno combo. The chile relleno had more cheese and beans than green pepper, so choose something else if you want more veggies on your plate.

Service was good and pretty quick.

The food is always great here and the service is fast and friendly. Never have to wait for a table because the dining room is huge. Great decor and well thought out.

Was told it was not great but decided to go anyways. It was ok. I have had better. Didn't care for the enchilada sauce but it may just be different then what I'm use to in Indiana. Chips and salsa were good. Service was ok. Amount of food for price was about what I expected.

The food was very good and at a reasonable price. The waiter was also very good. However, we were not impressed with either the person taking us to our table who basically ignored us or the person who delivered the food. It was a bit of a mixed bag. However the waiter and the quality of the food helped.

Management failure at this location. Management needs to re-train their servers. second visit in three weeks and same experience. We had 8 people in our party and were seated very quickly. Chip guy was almost on our heels placing chips and salsa on our table. This is the point everything starts going downhill. After about 10 to 15 minutes a waiter appears to take our drink orders from another area of tables in the next room. It took our waiter another 10 to 15 minutes to return with our drinks and he disappeared quickly. After waiting 20 minutes to place our order we finally got up and went to the front to find someone to take our order. They supposedly were trying to find our waiter and he appeared at our table about 10 minutes later. During this time the chip guy brought us another round. I noticed that all the waiters were working multiple tables in multiple rooms instead of having tables in one room. This obviously added to their inability to timely help their customers and recognize when customers needed them. The room we were in was very hot and there was no air circulation. I will also mention parking is very difficult during peak hours due to limited spaces for the capacity size restaurant. Food finally arrived and was hot and well prepared. Food had a good taste and was pleasant. I would have given better marks if it was not for the bad service twice in three weeks with different waiters. Resturant is very loud with minimal capacity since everything in there reflects sound. Hopefully, management will get their wait staff in check very soon and get this restaurant back to its prior glory.
