I had one dinner in Schaffausen and I found good Mexican food at El Sombrero. I ate a very good burrito which was well done. Service could be improved a bit.

Never having been to Mexico I'm not sure how 'authentic' some of the cuisine is but who doesn't love hot chips as a side dish?! :) The fajitas were delicious, they looked slightly overcooked when they arrived at the table but they were very good....More
