ON THE MENU – Plan your date this Valentine’s Day at the Sombreros Mexican Grill – Port Arthur News
NEDERLAND — As Valentine’s Day approaches, the Sombrero Mexican Grill has a special you’ll fall in love with.
From February 11-14, a platter and strawberry margaritas are sure to delight.
“We’re going to have a ‘special for two,’ which is a combination of beef, chicken and shrimp,” manager Francisco Herrera said.
“There is melted cheese on top in a hot skillet. We also promote our tres leches cake. It’s going to be amazing this year. »
The restaurant is located at 2095 Highway 69 in the Netherlands.
Last year the restaurant completed an addition to the building to add more seating. The room, located at the back of the restaurant, doubles as a party room with large sliding doors for privacy.
The Sombrero Mexican Grill also has an outdoor patio with sliding glass doors that the restaurant opens when the weather permits.
Herrera manages day-to-day operations, but the Carrillo brothers, to whom he is related, own the establishment.
The family also owns Rancho Grande, which started in Tomball in the early 90s.
Those passing through Sombrero on Highway 69 may have seen the large sign touting the best crawfish around.
He became known for his delicacy, Herrera said.
“A lot of people were asking for crawfish and seafood and stuff like that,” he said. “We have to be the best and make the best crawfish in town and here we are. People love our crayfish. They’ve been calling since December. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ We started a little earlier this year. The crayfish are of very good size. By mid-February they will be huge. It’s going to be awesome.”
Herrera said his staff were still tired of the ongoing pandemic and were taking the necessary precautions to keep customers safe.
“My guys are focused on what they’re doing,” he said. “We are here to take care of everyone.
Aside from the seasonal crawfish and the Valentine’s Day special, people can try a number of Tex-Mex favorites like enchiladas, nachos, tacos, carne asada and more.
The restaurant also has a bar with over a dozen beers and several TVs with several sporting events at all times.
The Sombrero Mexican Grill is open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
