Campeche Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Downtown Galena, Il: Great Mex food
    Cher
    Dined on 8/10/2013
    When we have a taste for Mexican food and a friendly downtown atmosphere in historic Galena Il, we always go to the family run Campeche's. Enjoy the outdoor patio or cozy indoor setting. We love their chicken enchiladas and be be sure to order their home made chunky guacamole with your margueritas.

    What we loved was their dinner for two. People from the other tables came over to see it when we were served. The food was great but on a Saturday night we paid $39. I checked their on-line menu and it was listed at $29. Being the town is a tourist trap I guess they must jack up their prices on weekends but still, 30% more???

    The food and service are very good. We really like the gentleman playing the keyboard too. Just wish he was a bit quieter. It is a small place and can be noisy.

    A hidden neighborhood "gem"--frequented by loyal locals and visitors alike! Not your average "chain" food--special family recipes of authentic Mexican cuisine will bring you back again and again. Music adds special flair to an evening, however, Campeche is also a wonderful choice for lunch. Try sitting outdoors in good weather on their patio.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/6/2012
    Camnpeche was a great find! I have been back several times. It is a family owned/run restaurant and all the food is made on site. It is the best Mexican food I have had other than in Mexico. Everyone had something different and raved about the food. We went as a large group and celebrated a birthday. We didn't mention it, however they overheard and did something for it. Very nice people.

  • Worst Mexican food I ever
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/14/2012
    Worst Mexican food I ever had- steak had no taste and looked and smelled unappetizing. Peach margarita came out in glass white colored and without any peach taste to it. Restaurant was mostly empty and the host acted like he did not want to sit us inside until I said I had a reservation and then he pulled a four top table away from a group of tables for us to sit at. I understand their outside patio was open but it was later at night and colder out and we did not want to sit out there. Sorry if he was annoyed.

    Food was good, service was terrible. We wanted checks divided with 6 couples out and they could only divide into 3 checks. But they put the wrong stuff on wrong checks and took FOREVER to do it. Very dissapointing after having good food. Also, we were the ONLY ones in there on New Year's Eve-not good advertising!

    Fabulous find at the end of Main Street... just around the corner. Wonderful decorations, great entertainment and the food - out of this world. Can't wait to go back in the summer to enjoy the outside dining patio! Authentic Mexican food at it's best... and the Margaritas - out of this world! We had a group of 12 on a holiday weekend and the restaurant did a great job taking care of everyone.

    The food here was outstanding! We had great service and a wonderful meal. I had a combo with a quesadilla, tamale, and an enchilada, I enjoyed all of it. My husband had the chicken enchiladas suiza and really enjoyed it. We went on our first night in Galena and contemplated going there for dinner every night. We went to other restaurants instead and were disappointed because none of them were as good as Campeche!
