We just finished dining at Sombra and I had to come home and write a review. The food is wonderful. There are many Mexican restaurants nearby but this one tops them all. For the people who like run of the mill Mexican food this is not for you. At Sombra the food had lots of flavor. Sombra is Mexican with a twist. The drinks are delicious; all the margaritas are made with lime and agave. I had the berry margarita and it was delish. It is a frozen drink which I normally don't like but it was more liquid slush than frozen and not sweet. In the past I have had the black bean and goat cheese tamale but tonight I tried a cheese & onion enchilada with green chili and the chicken tamale with green chili. My meal tonight was excellent however I must say I still like my black bean & goat cheese tamale. My husband ordered the pork shoulder wrapped in a banana leaf and it was awesome. It was super moist and packed with flavor. If you haven't tried Sombra yet be sure and stop by and enjoy a great meal.

We have dined at the original Sombra location several times and were very happy to see this location come to Flowood since it is much closer to our home (that means we will come more often)! We arrived at a not so busy mid-afternoon time and were glad for the extra attention that we got from our Server, Lorraina. After taking a bit of time to review both the Lunch and Regular Menus, My Wife chose a Chalupa Lunch with a Margarita and being a Burger fan (this restaurant has several Burgers to choose from) I went with the Quesadilla Burger and a Dos Equis with Lime. The food was very good, filling, and also very affordable. We dine out often (we are retired empty nesters) and will make Sombra a regular stop.

Local Tex-Mex Restaurant. The food is ok, but the drinks are great! We were a group of 7 who came for a celebration. From the moment we entered the restaurant, the staff was very attentive. Special thanks to our waitress, Jamie, who made our evening an unforgettable experience!

I stopped here on a Saturday with a couple of friends at 7pm. We were immediately sat. The service was great from the waitress. They didn't have a hotter sauce than the salsa provided with the chips. But, they did have the Yucateca on the table to add a little heat. The food took a little while to come. I had the black bean and goat cheese tamale. They were good. I tried to order a Mexican mule, but they were out of an ingredient.

I am a Realtor and a true foody! Most Mexican restaurants all taste the same- NOT with Sombra! Fresh ingredients, wonderful flavors and great service. Try the blackened Redfish tacos- superb and highly recommended. I will definitely be back next time I'm in the area.
