Well, Howdy Hitchcock Folks!
Well, all the buzz around town is the re-opening of a longtime and very well-established family restaurant, "El Sombrero Café" located at 9302 Hwy 6, Hitchcock, TX 77563.
El Sombrero has been serving Hitchcock, Tx for decades.
El Sombrero Café is owned and operated by Ramiro & Marta Gonzales Family since October 1973 thru 2010.
Now owned and operated by their daughters and Aunt Gracie.
This loving family wants Hitchcock to know how grateful and blessed they are to continue our parent's legacy in Jesus' name!
Me, Mom, and Dad, thought we would wait a few days until the crowd died down some.
El Sombrero re-opened on May 3rd.
The place was packed.
I went today May 5, and it still had most all the tables full.
The staff was busy for sure.
I must say that my Fajitas remain as delicious as I can remember.
Everything was great!
But, maybe the best treat of all was seeing my old friend, and I can imagine, friend to most Hitchcock residents, Graciela!
El Sombrero would not be the same without her in my opinion.
Missed you soooooooo much!
Now, if you are a new resident to Hitchcock, and we do get many every day now, and your looking to dine in, for, "La Mejor Comida Mexicana en el Condado de Galveston County, but ya don't want to leave town.
Then try our local favorite family gathering spot.
But of course, there are folk's who say, that they don't care for El Sombrero Café.
Well, Galveston County has no shortage of Mexican food that's for sure.
However, El Sombrero is more than a place to eat, it is home.
And the family that runs it, is family to us all and has been so for a very, very long time.
We Texans, are a friendly sort.
Your kids are our kids.
We are a very supportive community.
If you are from the West and East coast you might have noticed how things slow down a bit round here, and that folks still hold the door open for you and smile.
Yep, you guessed right.
In a small town, everybody knows everybody.
When a baby is born, or a loved one passes away, life doesn't go unnoticed, and neighbors and friends bring food, love, and hugs to share with one another.
That's how El Sombrero seems to me.
I, like many here, grew up eating there.
Boy, if those walls could talk!
Lord, I'm telling my age! lol!
So good to see you Graciela!
I did say, already, Welcome Back, but honestly, y'all never left us.
You've been on our minds and in our hearts.
