We've loved the food and, at times, it feel short. We've had great tequila drinks, but at time, that too fell short.
I have not figured it out, maybe what Chef is on? but looks like staffing is important at El Sombrero's

Price is fair -

My husband and I have been eating here since we were dating. It is now a favorite for our kids too! The food is always fantastic and the service is even better. It is the same lunch or dinner, weekday or weekend. We know we will have a great experience in a welcoming environment. Meals are reasonably priced and served in a generous portion. If you haven't already...check out this restaurant.

My favorite Mexican restaurant. Nobody can beat their food. I have been to many restaurants in the area and I always go back here. Portions are large. Food is always hot. Service is excellent. Prices are reasonable.

El Sombrero is my favorite Mexican restaurant. The staff gets to know you personally and knows my order when I go in. Right when you sit down, they serve you chips and salsa. The salsa is homemade and out of this world. I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys mexican food at afforadable pricing!

This is a long standing Mexican restaurant that could only survive here in the northeast. The salsa was on a par with what you can find on your local grocer's shelves. Our enchiladas suizas (chicken filled with tometillo (sic) sauce) to the pescada Santa Fe (broiled scrod with gallic and spices) entrees were each flavorless. The latter was listed as a house specialty.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: below average food

First of all, I would like to start off by saying that we moved from AZ knowing in advance that there was likely no legitimate Mexican cuisine in the Northeast. We have not been proved wrong thus far. We went to El Sombrero as a last ditch effort and were completely dissatisfied. The salsa is nothing more than ketchup with cilantro. Yuck!!! Ground beef tacos, with salt as the chief spice? Retarded. The "Mexican food" is a joke. Number of Mexican beers on tap: zero. Please. For Pete's sake, the combination number four ("cuatro" en espanol) was spelled with a Q. Couldn't you even hire someone from near Mexico to spellcheck the menu? I implore you, if you have never left sight of the Atlantic, do yourself a favor and hop on a plane to the southwest, or better yet, south of the border.

I really enjoy this restaurant, the service is excellent. As soon as you sit down you have chips and salsa brought to your table. The chips are fresh and the salsa is delicious. They have a great bar and lots of choices for different flavors of margaritas. The food is very good and the portions are good sized. Pricing is very fair and they are also in the Entertainment book, so you can even get a free meal when you purchase one. I love listening to the Mariachi band in the evenings, other times its a great place to just sit and watch a baseball game on the tv.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in CT - and probably the best Mexican restaurant in the area. Their chips and salsa are so fresh - by far the best I've had. With huge servings of food, great service, and fantastic music (usually played by a live band) you can't ask for more. Everything on the menu is great. I've often seen many local celebrities eating there - so you know the food is good!

I am originally from CA and since moving to CT 9 years ago, it has been very hard to find good Mexican food. El Sombrero had delicious food that is as close to the food I can get at home.

Everything is wonderful and the portions are big. I love the Chimichangas.

the food is absolutely amzing. it's a little mom and pop type operation. the atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. it's a great family restaurant with authentic live music with a little mariachi band. all the food is handmade fresh, including the complimentary chips and salsa. the bar is a nice little niche for drinks after work or a total blast for a night out on the town.
