The food here is everything people say it is. Been great for years and years. My kids and I love the nachos, beans and rice! Thanks for giving us at least one great restaurant in FRG. Long Family

My wife and I have always had great Mexican meals here. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful restaurant with great owners that remember return guests in our hometown. When it comes to authentic Mexican food we highly recommend El SOMBRERO!! No matter how far away live, you have to come try will be glad you did!

Margarita Monday was a hit, great service, great food, hope they expand their deck, an outdoor grill and Coronas would be perfect this summer! We live in Fox River Grove and are looking forward to many more fun nights.

Outstanding, amazing food. love how fresh it is, and how spicy we can ask for it. we come here as much as possible. This is the best in the whole area...

Second time we've been to your restaurant and each time it just gets better and better. The butterfly shrimp dish and Mojitos were exceptional. My wife and I talked, laughed and had a wonderful time out! Thanks for making our alone time wonderful time. See you soon, Galat Family of FRG

Great people....AWESOME FOOD! My favorite is the Spicy seafood soup. I highly recommend!

Tried this place and was blown away. I come here probably 5 times a week for the burritos and tacos. Truly the best authentic mexican food I have ever tasted. Hope to see this place stay around for a long time.

We love this place!!! Not only is this Mexican restaurant within walking distance of home but they have the best spicy pork tacos I have ever had. The service is really friendly and we always feel welcome there. In fact, we just had a great dinner there tonight: 6 tacos, guacamole & chips and 3 beers and it was only $23!!! The first time we went to El Sombrero we went back the very next night because it was so good. What a deal! It is officially our new favorite restaurant since moving out here from the city :) Oh, I almost forgot to mention the green salsa - it is SO good. Best green salsa ever, in fact I want to see if they would bottle it up and sell it in the stores. I will of course call it "The Best Green Salsa Ever". Oh and one more thing, they have a lunch special and tacos are $1 - check it out!

El Sombrero in Fox River Grove is a little slice of heaven for me! I love Mexican food and I feel very lucky to have the best right in my back yard! The service is wonderful friendly and courteous. The food is outstanding, I am not sure what I like the best the steak tacos were my favorite until I tried the steak burritos. For dinners the steak and shrimp is a great choice! They also have a great selection of beer. If you don't live close you need to take a ride to Fox River Grove and try out El Sombrero You won't be disappointed!
