Best Margaritas in town and while your at it and need a little protein order the BIG ROD's Special. You can't go wrong here with good food and friendly wait staff.

This restaurant is very busy at lunch. The noise level has improved because they have expanded. Lovers of white melting cheese will like most of the menu items. The chips are pretty good and sauce is ok too. It is much like another restaurant near by off Gilmer Road. The menus are very similar too.

When I come to Longview I eat at El Sombrero! My children's favorite, mine too! The staff is friendly and always attentive! The food is delicious, never had an issue! The black beans are the best! Food is always fresh and hot! I will be back on my next trip and my next! Yum!

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! 😆

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
