The good: food was very good (4 star). Not outstanding. One server was very pleasant (male one). The bad or not so good: water never re-filled, except when we asked. One server (female one) was very unpleasant and could have cared less (one star). Very...More

Really enjoy coming here. Good food, authentic, nice servers and nice owners. Why would ANYONE go to a chain Mexican restaurant when they can come here. One of our favorite places as new residents to the area. The menu selections are good, as well as...More

This is a cozy mexican restaurant with great fresh food and good drinks. The menu varies but always has the same favorites. The place is packed and never as to advertise or even have a sign that can be seen.

El Camino gets better and better. You'll have to wait in the bar for a table, but it's a friendly place. Fresh ingredients, well spiced. Fancier than the usual Tex-Mex fare.

I've enjoyed many meals at El Camino. All have been excellent. The service is friendly and prompt, but never rushed. The chips, salsa, and guacamole are a wonderful way to start a meal. This is a popular spot, but well worth any wait.

El Camino has slipped some in my opinion. It may be that the management or ownership has changed. A friend and I had dinner there on Friday July 8th and although the specials board again had a few of my past favorites listed, what we...More
