Met some work friends here for dinner. Not awful but my friend did find a fly on her lemon that was submerged in her water. That was weird. Chips were either stale or overcooked. Service was really good though and food was good.

We arrived about 30 mins before closing & they were not at all busy. We where seated right away. Our server was very friendly & prompt. The food was very good. Can't remember the dish I had but it's steak on s bed of rice topped with cause dip...it was good, the steak had a different flavor than I'm used... More

#62!! That's all you need to know. Chicken, bacon, mushrooms and a cheese sauce on a sizzling skillet!! All of the food is outstanding and the staff is very attentive and friendly. (Don't tell them it's your Birthday or you will wear "The Hat"!!) A fun place for a family outing.

Love every dish I have ever tried here and I eat Mexican ALL OF THE TIME. Great service. Great selection. Ask for anything and they will make it happen here. Enchiladas are especially good compared to most others. Margaritas are awesome here.

El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant on Highway 80 in Clinton is still one of our very favorites. I'm gonna guess that it might be Clinton's original Mexican Restaurant. We're always muy contento with the friendly service, the cleanliness and the excellent food.

Decided we wanted Mexican for dinner while staying overnight. High Prices, mediocre food! Sad we wasted 35.00 there.. Try somewhere else when your passing through. Best part was Leaving that establishment!
