El Sombrero is a magical place where plates are filled from edge to edge with delicious Mexican food, and even the “small” frozen margaritas come in massive goblets. We like the chile rellenos, anchiladas, and burritos here, and you’ll probably find it hard not to eat eight baskets of the fresh tortilla chips.
