El Sombrero: "Not So Bad Mexican Fare" Juneau Restaurant Tip by peach93

Juneau Restaurants: 53 reviews and 46 photos

  el Sombrero
by peach93

I've got this weird habit of eating in Mexican restaurants which are located in places where I know the food can't be too good. I've eaten Mexican in Quebec, Helsinki and even Iceland, and, yes, they were all bad (Helsinki was the worst), so when I saw this Mexican place in Juneau I thought, what the hell, I'll make it into a project.

The thing I learned, however, is that for some reason there are lots of Mexican immigrants in Juneau and El Sombrero is owned by a Mexican family which has been there for over 50 years. They use old family recipes at their restaurant and the food there is actually pretty good.

The prices are good, too, and they have a good selection of Mexican beers.
