This is a family owned restaurant and they have others and they are all good. Very authentic Tex Mex with the best chili con caso on the planet. Well managed and quick turnaround. These people know how to move food and do a great job.

We ordered To-Go food here so this review is based on that service and quality. The service was standard and the order correct when we arrived home. But the food was mediocre. The soup was piping hot still but just okay in quality of taste/flavor...More

Authentic Mexican food. So many places in town make Mexican food, this place is the real deal. Everything is just like you'd get in Old Mexico, including the margaritas which are great.

We had lunch on a Friday and the service was very good. The waiter was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. It was reasonably priced and tasty. Overall it was a good experience and I'd recommend it for a week day lunch.

Good authentic Jalisco-style food with a distinctly homemade flavor, El Sombrero de Jalisco serves breakfast through dinner, with lunch specials from 11-2 pm and happy hour from 2-7 pm. Open since 2005, El Sombrero de Jalisco is family operated by Jaime Melendez and his wife, Catalina. Jaime is quick to laugh, but becomes serious when asked what he likes most about the restaurant "Darle gusto a la gente lo mas que pueda" - give as much enjoyment as possible to others. Open at 6 am and with a private seating area, El Sombrero is perfect for your next networking, BNI, or Chamber of Commerce event. Please leave a review so that others can find us!
