Prompt service even though they were busy, good food, reasonable prices, and the ability to make our order smaller...all things that we liked at this place of eating. We also appreciated being able to take an order out with us to the motel.

I happened to stay at the BW hotel across the street from restaurant. While the food was mediocre the waitress was very good. However the entire experience was marred by someone at the restaurant scanning my credit card with the resulting charges coming from the country of Columbia.

We've lived and eaten Mexican food in Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California .... This place is the best. Try the Carne Asada with a margarita, of course. If you want to take eating to another tasty level, have another meal at the La Manarca taco truck on Rose St.

Eaten here many times. Food is always good. Salsa seems to depend on the cook prepping it. Sometimes its very spicy and sometimes quite mild.

We were traveling on Highway 12 to visit relatives, and it was past 7:30 when we decided that we should stop for some dinner in Walla Walla. We pulled off at the downtown exit and almost immediately passed El Sombrero. When we walked in, we were impressed with both the decor and the prompt service. I ordered the arroz con... More

First time visit for us. They had standard Mexican fare and some specials. Food came out pretty quickly and was hot, which we appreciated. Food was pretty good. Would have rated them a little higher but one member of our party got nausea and abdominal cramps that night.
