I love El Sombrero in Greencastle. They don't serve alcohol so don't plan on any margaritas. But I pick up from there a lot and most of the time the food is spot on. Sometimes they will forget my salsa or something, so I just started checking it before I left! Very good rice, and the fajita burritos are my... More

Very clean and friendly staff would come back when in the area. Portions were smaller then I have seen but was enough for lunch.

Many of our friends have recommended this restaurant but recently when driving through this town we decided to stop for dinner. Wonderful Mexican food and great friendly service! Definitely will go back again. It is off the main roads and unfortunately missed by travelers just driving through. Great restaurant!!

The chips and the salsa was a cut above. Very good. One of us had the burrito which covered the whole plate and was excellent. One of us had the chimichanga which was also excellent. Decide to try the sopapia which was OK and satisfied our cravings for a sweet thing. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was amicable.... More

We used to love this restaurant. Been going there for years. Last few visits were so-so. Today was the last straw. Specifically requested to please not burn the meat in the fajita. Waitress acted like she could not understand a word of English however she has been there for years. Meat came out burned to a crisp, tough and tasted... More
