Mexican
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!

Great happy hour specials! Loved the guacamole and the tamale appetizer. Tacos were very good, and the drinks were awesome! Service was great also. We will definitely come here again when we are in the area.

Sorry to see wait staff slinging chips into dishes and some falling on the floor. Very messy. Tables too small to hold serving plates.

I made a reservation for a birthday and no acknowledge at all from the server
We ordered drinks and the margarita came first and the Corona came 12 minutes later
Appetizer and food came at the same time
The server never check on us... neverrrrrrr

We had a reservation and they could not seat us. They need to do a better job of their reservations system. We ended up just staying at the bar.

As always the food was amazing
I
Love this place and go frequently
It’s the reservation process
It’s a very busy place and extremely load
The receptionist is clueless
They assume that you can actually hear your phone when your table is finally ready
I went up several times to ask about our reservation
She kept saying soon and then she said 2 minutes
After 10 minutes went by of course I went back to ask her when. She then told me “ we text you” as I was standing right in back of her.
Just annoying. It won’t keep me away but we much better love takeout!!

Tonight wasn’t as packed! We were going to meet up friends but they never came. We did not have to wait long at all. The hostess let us sit down anyways which we appreciated because we were super hungry! Our waitress and other servers were really nice and attentive. The food was amazing as usual. Those steak tacos are delicious! The chips were even extra crispier than usual, just really tasty and fresh. It wasn’t as loud and it was easy to converse and be heard. Great taco Tuesday. Thank you so much El Camino staff, you guys rock!!!

Have been there several times before and loved it. This latest experience was not soo great. Our waiter was awful. We waited 10-15 min before came back to take order. Then never checked on us again until end. Our food Order was wrong. When we told the food runner our order was wrong, a man came to table and i can only assume is manager, addressed us in very rude and abrupt way. He asked what was wrong with order.. to which we said it we didnt get right tacos. And he proceeded to respond in nasty tone as if it was our fault the order was wrong. Very disappointing experience.

This place was busy! But efficient with seating, we arrived 15 minutes early for a reservation and we were seated right away. There was a 1 hour wait @ the time. We were greeted right away. Order for food & drinks taken promptly. Our server, Tracie, informed us about food choices & asked about allergies. We have none. We had the beef tacos (3) and the garden vegetable burrito with mole sauce & black beans. You get to choose your protein, sauce, and type of beans. It was ginormous, probably enough for 2 people. Our server Ltd us everything was made there from scratch including their own hot sauce. Their drinks are made with fresh squeezed juices not mixes. Ty he classic margarita was very good. The inside of the restaurant is high ceiling brick walls with beautiful lighting and glass covered bar area.

We went for Happy Hour and dinner on a "Taco Tuesday". The food and ambience was outstanding and the service was excellent for such a busy night. Highly recommended.
