Only respond was "sorry".third evening to get my bill seems to be mission impossible. Staff was passing me without noticing any of my siglans.

This just simply isn't how we treat our customers. While the occasional mistake may happen rarely, we're not in the business of forgetting orders or ignoring customers. I really hope you'll give us another shot sometime, because it looks like you've gotten the wrong impression of how we do business. Sincerely, Rob Greco, General Manager More

This place was within walking distance of my hotel. They have pretty traditional Mexican dishes and burgers and sandwiches. Good service and lots of tvs for watching sports. I ordered fish tacos and chicken quesadilla, very tasy. Prices are very resonable and they have a good selection of beer.

The urban margaritas are good. The guacamole and queso are good, also. However, the wings and chicken nachos, not so much. Good place to hang to watch football and have good drinks near hotel. Unfortunately, food is nothing to write home about.

I'm happy that you enjoyed your meal for the most part, Jhanelle, but I'm sorry there were aspects of it that you found less than impressive. Give us another shot the next time you're in town -- I know we've got something you'll simply have to write home about! Thank you, Rob Greco, General Manager More

Was skeptical about going to a restaurant at a strip mall but was pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere, great for watching sports. Margs were great and food was delicious! Pork adobo was juicy and very flavorful. Fish tacos, rellenos, and tilapia were really good too. Staff was friendly and very fast. Would definitely come here again.

Thanks for hanging out with us! It's great to hear that you enjoyed both our food and margs. It sounds like you ordered well -- the pork adobo (carnitas) is one of my favorite dishes here, and of course, you can't go wrong with fish tacos. That said, I sure do hope to see you around here again soon. All... More

Had a business lunch here yesterday and the food was really good, especially the salsa. The atmosphere was nice, typical Mexican style restaurant.

Wonderful food. Great house drinks. It was pretty noisy, however, making conversation a bit difficult. The service was excellent. I would eat here again.

Average to above average Tex-Mex food with lots of TVs and Monday night football. Okay beer selection. Good service. Salsa was sort of weak. Typical variety of Mexican food options - tacos, burritos, etc. Popular with the local hotel crowd.

This restaurant was recommended to us by folks at a gas station. We took a chance and we found the restaurant to be good.

Food was not bad but, my wife's meal was over slightly cooked. Our waitress was not interested in being a waitress. She assumed my wife wanted a certain sauce but did not ask until my wife double checked her order. She had a general "I don't care attitude". Maybe she had a bad day. I don't think you will have...

Description
The Urban Sombrero in Denver serves more than great Mexican food, we're also a passionate Sports Bar, where residents from Denver and beyond have come to cheer on their favorite team, or to drown out the sorrows of their losses. Our menu includes a wide variety of new and traditional Mexican fare, including Burritos, Chimichangas, Carnitas and more. Our burger selection features 1/2 lb grass fed beef, paired with high quality ingredients. You really can't go wrong, a solid selection of Mexican food, flowing beer and Margaritas, and large TV's, nowhere else really compares.
