We usually go here after working in the yard if we don't feel like cooking. It's quick, inexpensive, and tasty! The staff is friendly and helpful. If it's your birthday, speak up and you may get a sombrero and some deep fried ice cream!

The service was very good here. The food is what you would expect. My family and I enjoyed our meal. I love the decor, but I'm a sucker for bright tile work.

You would think all El Sombreros would be the same like McDonald's but they're not. I still like the Walla Walla one best but this ones still pretty good. Excellent service. Was surprised they seated children in the lounge though.

It's the place we go when we want to have a great dinner with our friends or family. We will always go back. My wife loves their cadillac margaritas!

El Sombrero is a great place to eat. It's a great place to take your family. They have a nice bar you can eat in. The food is REALLY good. Would recommend to anyone.

We had spent all day at the Pendleton Round Up, and were tired, hungry, and thirsty on the way back to our hotel in Walla Walla. The food here was very fresh and very good,with two kinds of fresh salsa to go with the warm chips. The Cadillac margaritas were ok, but nothing special. The restaurant was very clean and... More

I joked with my husband that the server kept the Tequila for herself. He wouldn't complain, just not order one again. Would go back even though she tried to argue that he ordered the wrong food she brought him. But did bring him the right food. Sweet sauce but okay. Slow getting the food out, it was 2pm, after lunch... More

The best Mexican in Oregon is in Milton Freewater at El Sombrero! The food is authentic, fresh and beautifully presented. Is very reasonable and large portions. I had a Asada burrito and it was great. They grill the beans and chicken and it gives it a wonderful smokey flavor. Don't miss this place.

The best Mexican food we have ever had! Everything had so much flavor. The customer service was excellent. The cleanliness and atmosphere were top-notch. Wish we had this El Sombrero's in Chattanooga, TN!!! Superb!!!
