Description: At El Camino, our guiding principle is to exceed our guest’s expectations in all areas – food, beverage, and ambiance – and create an experience that will arouse and excite our guest’s senses. As a team, we are inspired by the culture and the heritage of Mexico. To that end, we are passionate about bringing you an authentic experience not typically seen north of the border in chain restaurants. We are committed to offering the freshest organic and local ingredients where possible, and we value local, artisan, indigenous and reclaimed offerings. We are even taking the not so typical step of making our own tortillas, sauces, and anything else possible from scratch. The list of craft cocktails is truly Mexican and includes house made sangritas, a curated selection of agave spirits, a diverse selection of craft and Mexican beers. In the end, it is all about sharing the food with the community of people who enjoy it. Viva México!

Happy hour and specials are the way to go at this place. Specials seem great but only available at the bar or at the few tables out front.

It seems to be the most popular restaurant on the street. Food is good but very spicy. By the way, try one of the spicy Margaritas.

We would probably not go back. Prices for drinks are very high except at Happy Hour.

EL Camino is the lastest big Installment of over priced dinning on Los Olas. Lunch will cost $40 for two with water and no Chips or Salsa.
Rocco’s Tacos by comparison is better deal and the Food is more flavorful and drink specials are better.... The steak in the tacos was not marinated and was dry....They do not use fresh made Tortillas or really offer much for the price that is special.... The Bar is very big which is nice so you don’t feel crowded... sorry not much good to say.... If they could do Tex-Mex like in Austin Tx would be a hit.

I ate there this week with family. They had opened a few days earlier. There are some kinks they need to work out due to just opening, but the food was on point. I highly recommend this place for people looking for a restaurant on las olas.

The restaurant has a large bar area and both indoor and outdoor seating. We arrived before noon and were seated promptly. Tables filled up quickly and by 12:30 there was a 30 minute wait for tables. Our server was friendly and staff were quick to clear plates and food from the table. It took a long time to receive our entrees. The food was ok but lacked flavor - we tried a variety of tacos and found most of the meat was bland and dry. The only pronounced flavor was heat/spice - the spicy sauce served with the chicken taco was so spicy hot it was almost inedible. The best part of our meal was the chips served with red and green salsas.
