Nice atmosphere. Their food was pretty good. We liked the chips that came with chops's and salsa. I would say it was average.

This place is associated with a group that owns several restaurants in the Jackson metro area. Unfortunately, they miss the mark with this one. It has all the look of an upscale Mexican restaurant, but no talent in the kitchen or imagination on the menu. All I can say is if you want good Mexican food, avoid this place completely.

I have eaten here three times in the past 7 weeks. The salsa has good flavor. The inside atmosphere is pleasant. The service is good. The food is more American-ized than the real Mexican restaurants in the area. The food was good. My only complaint is the chips are served cool to cold (not warm) and they do not have... More

Sombra is light and airy and has a happy, festive atmosphere. The food is, well, Mexican and they have quite a lot of choices in the way it's prepared. The chips and salsa are amazing!

but that covers it. The restaurant is noisy, the service slow and impersonal and our dishes were mediocre. I had an enchilada platter and my wife had kitchen sink nachos. We found it all bland and tasting like ordinary restaurant supply food that was assembled & reheated onsite. I'd recommend going elsewhere.

My friend came into town so after a process of elimination we decided to head to Sombras. I haven't eaten there in years so, naturally, I was extremely excited.

Colorful setting in a very nice area. Service was fine until we paid our check, and then the server was no where to be found. Another server met our needs. The food was pretty good but similar to Chili's.
