This used to be my favorite place to eat but recently new owners took over. The food is horrible now, the service is horrible and will not go back again. We waited an hour for our food while others that were seated after us and ordered

We are originally from Tucson, AZ and just relocated to Spokane. Since arriving this winter we have been trying all the mexican restaurants in town and found El Sombrero to serve the most authentic Mexican food. Their machaca was excellent

First time going to the El Sombrero. I had the shrimp burrito, and it was great. Apparently the recipe is from Mexico City. The service was courteous, prompt and friendly. The restaurant is locally owned and community oriented,

We have been going to El Sombrero since Ray owned it! A couple of our favorites are the crisp Tacos and The Matador with shredded beef and green sauce. We are there at least once a week!!

I've been going here for Mexican since I can remember. The green sauce is unbelievable and they have hands down, the best enchiladas ever. I could eat here daily.

This was the first time I've eaten here and I loved it. It was the best Chile Relleno I've ever eaten. Staff was wonderful and the margarita was awesome. I guess they make everything from scratch there including their own margarita

This was by far the worst Mexican food I have ever had in my life. I had the #2 combination plate. All it accomplished was making me want to go #2 as quickly as possible to get rid of it! There was some kind of ground beef in the chili relleno, the "green" sauce which covered absolutely everything was tasteless and actually a bit more gray than green, the burrito was terrible, the cheese enchilada was done with a flour tortilla making it tasteless. Even the refried beans were awful! Never again. If it wasn't for the cute kid serving, I probably would have asked for my money back. Also, another family came in and ordered the "super nachos." I could tell they were made with a combination of Doritos (probably an off brand Dorito look alike) and the tasteless chips they serve with their hot catsup. Yuck, yuck and more yuck.

Pros: None.

this is easily one of the worst mexican places I've ever been to. absolutely no effort was expended to make quality food. the salsa was a joke , like thick tomato paste with cayenne added. the chips (how hard is it to get good chips), were salty and otherwise tasteless. I would be embarrassed to offer up this poor quality of fare to anyone visiting me (except my mother-in-law). A Mexican TV dinner would be better.

The whole family went. Had such a great selection of "High country" Mexican foods and several unique items. The Tacos were hard shell and the best I had eaten. My wife had the Tequila Shrimp burrito and was astounded. Took half home and had it on Saturday. Questioned the consistancy of the taco sauces and was informed that they make the sauce "medium" because the customers use one of the hot sauces offered from Mexico, Belize, Hawaii and other areas of the U.S., to spice up their chips. Chips were very fresh and warm.
Great bar. Lots of Tequilas and Rums.
We booked the conference room for Monday, to watch the Gonzaga game. Probably the best kept secret in Spokane. TRY IT. I was impressed.

Pros: Large portions, Realistic prices, Fast service

Cons: Too many customers, although they work fast to save the wait

I've been there twice in the last three weeks and I've been telling all my friends about it. El Sombrero is a great little hole-in-the-wall restaurant. Both of my meals (and those of my friends) have been great. I tried the Tequila Shrimp Burrito, which sounded kind of gross, but it was tasty!! If you want something big, get the Matador. It's one of the biggest burritos I've ever had and tastes wonderful.

It doesn't look nice on the outside, but inside it has great atmosphere and it's almost never croweded. You will have to wait a little for food, but it's well worth it.

Go eat at El Sombrero and see for yourself!

Pros: Great food, fun atmosphere

Cons: Service is a little slow, not sure if it's self seating or wait to be seated...

Truly the worst Mexican meal I havve ever eaten. The chips were stale and salsa tasted like a tin can. The waitress was surly and did not even attempt to make up for the horrible food. The cheese was placed on every item and just made the dishes extra gooey and gross.Do yourself a favor and skip this one. The only good thing about this resturant was that they allowed you to leave.
