I got a Chili Relleno alacarte and my wife had a Shrimp Quesadiilo with grilled vegetables. We loved it. Added an order of fresh and hot flour tortillas to go with the chips and hot sauce. Their fresh made hot sauce can't be beat. We love this place and will recommend you hit it at the end of the lunch... More

We had a nice lunch here while visiting family in Longview. The food is good and the servings plentiful. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and had great service. The menu is quite large with a wide variety of selections. I really enjoyed the black beans instead of the refried. I didn't have one but the margaritas looked pretty good. I... More

This is the best place for margaritas, hands down. I've been coming here for years because of them. The service may not be 5 star but they are friendly, and that's a plus!! They even have some great entrees, if you're interested in that sort of thing! 😆

First a confession, I come to Longview several times a year but I still get lost. I was looking for Little Mexico but my GPS took me to a sushi place. Interesting sense of humor. I saw this and decided to try it. There sign says that they are the home of the white quesso so I had to try... More

Try the white sauce! You will love it. There is always more food than you can eat at one setting. The white sauce is the best. The service is good too!

We love El Sombrero, but owners, please know that the service is going downhill! The last 3 times we have been there, it has been nothing like it used to be when you were onsite! Our waitress tonight was rude, did not get my order correct, and never checked on what we may need. We asked another waiter for a... More

I love their menu, not the same old Tex Mex as others. The service is always quick and polite and the food is delivered quickly. Great chips and salsa also.

Best Mexican food ever! White queso and salsa to die for. The cheese enchilladas are my favorite. They have a dish called papa nachos. Waffle fries that come with chicken or fajita meat with onion and peppers smothered in white queso. Sounds kind of strange but it is delicious!

their chips and hot sauce is the best ! Their hot sauce has cilantro in it which really gives it the great taste. I have eaten mainly the items with the grilled fajita mean in it and have loved every dish that I have ordered.

Visited there twice in the last month. The food was great but we may not be back. The server was conceited and even disappeared on break leaving us to fend for ourselves to check out. She never returned to our table after taking our order and announcing that she was the best. Getting stuck with her twice is too much.
