Sombrero Logo

The Original Sombrero opened in the College 
area of San Diego back in the 1960’s. This is 
where many of Sombrero’s recipes were 
created, as well as where Founder, Javier Sr, 
learned the family Mexican Food business. In 
1984 Javier reintroduced Sombrero to San 
Diego, this time as the quick service operation 
that it is today. Javier set the standards high 
since the beginning by using only the freshest 
quality ingredients, utilizing homemade 
“casera-style” cooking techniques, and always 
maintaining clean, well kept restaurants.
Although San Diego is the epicenter for quick 
service Mexican Food, Sombrero has seen 
great success. Sombrero continues to stand 
above its competitors by providing a consistent 
quality experience to guests in each location, 
use of quality products, and ongoing product 
innovation. Sombrero proudly serves guests the 
best ingredients available, featuring fresh 
Choice Angus meats, top quality cheese, a 
completely trans-fat & lard free menu as well as 
many healthy ordering options.
Sombrero locations typically open early for 
breakfast and close late, with many locations offering 24 hour drive-thru service. Each 
location is furnished with a self serve beverage area which includes a variety of Aguas 
Fresca, as well as a Fresh Salsa Bar, featuring our famous Salsas and Hot Carrots, all made 
from scratch!
Today, Sombrero has nearly 20 Southern California locations, and continues to grow!
