We ate here because of the reviews on TA. The chicken nachos were outstanding, probably the best I have ever tasted. The beef burrito was also excellent. Chips and salsa both very good. We had the Raspberry Margarita pitcher, actually we ordered the strawberry, but...More

We had a late lunch at El Sombrero after touring the Vicksburg National Military Park. The restaurant is an impressive - some might say cavernous - building. We were seated in a smaller room in the very back and Ally was our server. The place...More

Next door to HI, walked over to this anything but ordinary restaurant. A busy Friday night family crowd, and the interior decor carries thru on the festive atmosphere. Guacamole was disappointing, otherwise margaritas (frozen) are fine. Orders of enchilada combo and tacos al carbon very...More

El Sombrero has a very inviting ambience but the margarita my wife ordered was not good. It was not the top shelf but upon complaining, the top shelf brought was no better. Too much orange juice. The salsa was great but the chips were burnt....More

We ordered our food to go. The place was full, and the staff still made time for order. The food was Outstanding. I think that the staff really went all out for to-go orders.

We stop in every year on our way to Florida. Excellent food! The menu has plenty of choices. We had the steak fajitas, bean and cheese burrito, chilli rejano, beef enchiladas, and kid's quesidilla. All was delicious and served fast. Only complaint is the cigarette...More

All the standard Tex-Mex dishes, plus many others that I've never seen on other Tex-Mex restaurants' menus. Some Southwestern; some Spanish; a few American. Very tempting kids' menu. I've never gotten as far as dessert. When I'm with my family, there's always a dish or...More

We’ve been there twice recently both times the food was excellent. First time the service was terrible, sorry just real. First meal was Fajitas, steak-chicken-shrimp, very good. Second visit Nacho fajitas with added roasted jalapeños. Fabulous, highly recommend. We also ordered the spicy salsa which...More

No, sorry they do not serve breakfast; I believe they have some egg dishes on their lunch and dinner menu. Hope this helps!
