Stopped in on our way to our hotel at 11:00pm. Was pleasantly surprised to find one of my personal favorites, New Mexico Green Chili! Even at the late hour, we received quick, personal service with a smile, and the food was fantastic!! I love to find great locally owned independent restaurants, and this on is at the top of my...

Love this place! I have been looking for a place that I can enjoy some Mexican food and that also has offerings for my husband that does not enjoy Mexican food. This place exceeds expectations! Great Chimichangas and excellent Margaritas for me and tasty burgers for my husband. This will be a regular stop for us!

I opted for dinner here because it was within walking distance from my hotel. First impression is that the place looked like a biker bar, sports bar feel with waitresses running around half dressed in 30 degree weather. The margarita was delicious and plentiful. The chips for the salsa were corn chips, not a traditional flour chip which I didn't... More

This just simply isn't how we treat our customers. While the occasional mistake may happen rarely, we're not in the business of forgetting orders or ignoring customers. I really hope you'll give us another shot sometime, because it looks like you've gotten the wrong impression of how we do business. Sincerely, Rob Greco, General Manager More

This place was within walking distance of my hotel. They have pretty traditional Mexican dishes and burgers and sandwiches. Good service and lots of tvs for watching sports. I ordered fish tacos and chicken quesadilla, very tasy. Prices are very resonable and they have a good selection of beer.

Thanks for stopping by, Glen! I love that we were so convenient for you, and I really appreciate you giving our fish tacos a shot -- they're definitely a favorite around town.

The urban margaritas are good. The guacamole and queso are good, also. However, the wings and chicken nachos, not so much. Good place to hang to watch football and have good drinks near hotel. Unfortunately, food is nothing to write home about.

Thank Jhanelle G

I'm happy that you enjoyed your meal for the most part, Jhanelle, but I'm sorry there were aspects of it that you found less than impressive. Give us another shot the next time you're in town -- I know we've got something you'll simply have to write home about! Thank you, Rob Greco, General Manager More

Was skeptical about going to a restaurant at a strip mall but was pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere, great for watching sports. Margs were great and food was delicious! Pork adobo was juicy and very flavorful. Fish tacos, rellenos, and tilapia were really good too. Staff was friendly and very fast. Would definitely come here again.

Thanks for hanging out with us! It's great to hear that you enjoyed both our food and margs. It sounds like you ordered well -- the pork adobo (carnitas) is one of my favorite dishes here, and of course, you can't go wrong with fish tacos. That said, I sure do hope to see you around here again soon. All... More

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.
