This place is a little dark, slightly sketchy.....just as a good mexican place should be! The salsa is homemade. The service is great and all is reasonably priced.

We ate here some time back and since we were passing through Macon again, decided to try El Sombrero again. My wife had the Sopa de Pollo (Chicken Soup) and liked it, but was not enamored with the cilantro in it. I had the Steak Fajitas and while it was good, it was not as good as I remembered from...

Nothing like El Sombrero's on a lunch break man. Such a relaxing environment and Lazlo is the ebst and funniest server ever! He remembers your meals, your drinks, and face over time and truly just has a great personality. The food is my fave! Always hot, always delicious and as a San Diego native, always Mexican :-*

We were traveling through and someone suggested this place. The food was excellent. While we waited the waitress brought us free chips and salsa. The salsa was freshly made and had excellent flavor. There was just enough spice and heat to make it fun to eat and yet not too hard on the stomach. I had a chicken fajita quesadilla... More

The food and drinks are consistently good. This is the most popular Mexican Restaurant in Macon. Expect a wait especially on Friday nights. Everyone I know has their own favorite dish here. You typically cannot go wrong with whatever you order.

Ordered kids meal two entrees the good was hot and delicious. Server was 👍. Will return with family again. Very nice atmosphere lots of seating. Parking can be troublesome but that's more of a location issue.

We always enjoy our visit to El Sombrero. Good service, great food and always a good crowd. They are a good supporter of the Macon Cherry Blossom.

Born & raised in Macon, I have grown up el som. Now living out of the continental United States, I look forward to coming home to el sombrero. Their chips and salsa, salsa verde, and classic guacamole cannot be competed with. Coming from someone who has traveled nation-- and world wide-- it's the best!!! Paula and Ernesto, the owners, have... More

This is a very popular local Mexican restaurant in Macon. Almost always crowded and suitable for family or group events. Fine for couples and small groups but not upscale or romantic. Service always good and efficient !

A wonderful rendition of a little restaurant in Mexico! Our server was way too pushy and we felt rushed throughout the meal. I wasn't impressed by the food, it tasted like it came from a can or from a fast food place. The beer selection was very limited! On a positive note, the chips and salsa were good!
