We stopped in for lunch and had the vegetarian nachos and the 10 inch vegetarian burrito and we were not disappointed. They were good sized meals with plenty of flavouring. Washed it all down with a corona and we left 2 very satisfied customers. Very...More

We popped in to Sombrero for a quick dinner. It was not busy so we sat where we wanted and the staff took our drinks order quickly. Beer and margaritas were well received. The menu was basic but good and the food was really good....More

It's bright and festive with sun shining in the windows. The vegan sombrero burrito was okay, but the feta quesadillas were much better. The lunch menu was reasonably priced.

Lunch was less than mediocre..serve took ages for a couple of burritos. When we got them we were underwhelmed, both were 60% rice, and some beans. No flavor, none of the typical mexican condiments like sour cream, guacamole. The salsa was just tinned toms. It...More
