Restaurateur Bobby Sombrero brings authentic taste of Mexico to Great Kills

Bobby Sombrero of Great Kills grew weary of seeing pizza and Chinese food on Staten Island. So when he opened Sombrero's Restaurant two years ago, he decided to dish up authentic Mexican fare.

"One Friday night, we went to Jose Tejas," he said. "I've lived on the South Shore of Staten Island all my life and we wondered 'How come no one did this on the south shore of Staten Island?'"

Intent on bringing south-of-the-border to his side of the Island, Bobby started collecting sombreros (as in the little hats) from eBay. He finally set up his 20-seat shop in October 2004.

Bobby started his food career in 1979 in the kitchen at Spanish-flavored Carmen's Restaurant in Great Kills. After 1990, he moved on to work as a computer tech on Wall Street for another 12 years.

In 2004 Bobby Sombrero decided to open Sombrero�s Mexican restaurant..
Sombrero�s delivers too so even those at home can have authentic Mexican food delivered right to their front door.
Catering has grown considerably over the last year, Bobby notes. He makes miniature burritos and quesadillas for hors d'oeuvres. He also puts together taco parties -- he makes taco shells fresh in the restaurant..

He gives all children who eat there free Mexican jumping beans....... Sombrero's Mexican Restaurant is located at 4091 Hylan Blvd., Great Kills. www. Mexicanfoodtogo.com. 718-605-2300.
