My daughter and I went to Universal Studios this weekend. Before leaving back home we had to try this place. The day prior II was going to Universal Studios we noticed a very large line. Now I know why. If you are in the area and you want to try a good Mexican restaurant try this place out. My only... More

Our server was so in tune that from three tables away he noticed my daughter drop her fork and brought one right over. The food was great, but the service was excellent! They would refill drinks before you knew you even needed one. They seemed to work in teams and sis a great job! Table side guacamole was yummy, but... More

My husband and I ate here after leaving the Hollywood Studios since we didn't want to go far to search for dinner before heading back to our hotel. The service here was EXCELLENT. Everyone was so friends, efficient and accommodating. The food was fine, not the best Mexican I've ever had, but still decent. And the meals were decently priced... More

I booked a group dinner for 40 persons following a corporate event that included a Universal Studios backlot tour. Everything was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. We were seated in a private area of the main dining room. We enjoyed drinks, chips, salsa and guacamole before a buffet dinner with dessert. There was an endless supply of... More

Camacho's was our restaurant of choice after our visit to Universal Studios. It was not part of our plan. Honestly, we did this mostly for practical reasons such as; near by, hungry, love mexican, raining outside, no wait. I would certainly plan to go back. The tableside guacamole was perfect, each ingredient in correct proportion. Medium spice, per our request.... More

Food offered here at this location is quite tasty! Food quality has always been good. One thing I must say is that their service and food has been consistent over the years. During the last visit we ordered the El Presidente platter. Yeah...If you do that, don't order apps or eat the chips from the table. It's a plate for... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant Andres a day at Universal Studios. It was a great way to end the day, after eating the generic park food all day. There was a bit of a wait (30 mins). I rate this very good because the hostess (I believe it was Taitlani or close to that) was not a great... More

We dined here after a long day at Universal and loved every moment. The food was so good that I would recommend anything on the menu it will most likely taste amazing. We had the nachos with chicken and it was more than enough for 2 adults, so you can probably get a child or an adult that isnt quite... More

No wait at dinner time. Very pleasant waitress. Service was just the right pace. The food was very tasty and plentiful and the prices was very comfortable. You started with chips and salsa. Saw plenty of family dinning with the kids.

We enjoyed this restaurant with a tour group, which could have effected the quality of the food. We had over 100 in our group and we were able to eat in about an hour. The food was good but barely warm. The cheese enchiladas had a great deal of sauce and very little cheese.
