This place has opened in the last month. Come to Jackson once a month on business. Many choices for Mexican food on this side of town. Nice to see service with quality food. Not sure what the other reviewer was talking about concerning service. It was better than expected. Will spread the word. A new place is in town. Congrats... More

Great dining experience. Not your average Mexican restaurant as the menu options and atmosphere are a little more sophisticated. Good location for singles at the bar, couples date night, or family and friends getting together. Sombra is active in the community, so regular events are held here.

We had a group of 6 and got to this restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday. We literally waited 28 minutes to get water. We had gotten chips and salsa and each ordered a water and a cocktail. The cocktails arrived long after the waters and had clearly been sitting at the bar a while because the frozen drinks were... More

Had a late lunch here and was pleasantly surprised by this place. The service was great until we got to our seats. We had to wait awhile for service and then we couldn't find the server. The food was good here. I had the steak quesadilla and a margarita. Very good. There is a lot of variety on the menu... More

Our waiter was super nice, but the food was not very good. The chips they put on the table were seasoned and tasty. But the actual entrees, which both had the "pulled chicken" were way too salty. Didn't order any drinks, but that is the only thing I would consider going back for. And the chips.

Upscale Mexican food at reasonable pricing. We had the freshly made guacamole appetizer. The vegetarian tamale was excellent, the roasted pork in banana leaf was great. The butter cookie caramel dessert was also very good. Richard was helpful and we enjoyed our brief visit with him after dinner.

As with Amerigo, Char, and the other restaurants owned by this group, Everything is always done right. Drinks are perfect, servers are well trained and knowledgeable, food is always outstanding. My favorite is the chimichanga. Be warned though, you better be hungry when you order because it is a lot of good food to tackle.

The food that we enjoyed was innovative and authentically Mexican. It is a family restaurant so if you want an urban vibe go at 7:00 or after when things turn decidedly more interesting. The portions are generous. I would have given them an Excellent rating if they had had the bison fajitas available. The service was excellent as well.

This is the nicest Mexican restaurant in our area. You wouldn't think a Mexican place would have good ribs but they are fabulous. Also, the fish tacos (fried) are wonderful. The only negative is the rice that comes with just about everything. It's the worst tasting rice I have ever eaten anywhere. I usually ask for a substitute like a... More
