    I love El Camino. I am a frequent customer at their Margarita Mondays and Taco Tuesday as well as their late night happy hour since I'm in the biz as well. Always spectacular food and I love the changing cocktail menu! Seasonal margaritas are my favorite! Wish bar staff was a little more warm sometimes since I only done at the bar, but as long as food continues to be great and my drink is full I am happy! Bonus... The house infused coffee and mexican fireball tequilas are original and fantastic!

    Ranks as one of the best Mexican places I have been in terms of food quality-but a very noisy scene- definitely not for quiet conversation.

    Great food and loved the $3.00 Margarita Monday! Fun atmosphere and the service is always great. Mexican food with a touch of flair is hard to find in Delray and I would recommend El Camino to my friends. I would never come to El Camino without reservations because it can get very crowded.

    We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was already very busy, so I recommend reservations. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The atmosphere in the restaurant is lively. The bar is huge and unique as is the decor of the restaurant. However, it is very loud, so if you want to hear the people talking next to you, sit close. The sangria I had was really tasty as was the guacamole. However my husband and I were disappointed with the tacos. We both chose the "pick 3" option. I had the first three tacos on the menu which were fish, shrimp, and chicken. They were uninspiring and not anything I would recommend to friends. My husband felt the same way. Will try something else IF we return.

    We tried this restaurant on a whim and could not believe how unique it is on the inside and how awesome the service was. The food was pretty good as well. Although we didn't particularly like the cheese dip since it was thickened melted cheese rather than queso, the entrees and desert were great. The marguritas were the best I've had in south FLA. We highly recommend El Camino for an awesome dining experience.

    The chicharrones were too, too large to share as an appetizer but tasted good. The fish taco has a single piece of fish. The blood orange margarita was weak. And the place was too loud to carry on a conversation. The food had a good flavor but that couldn't overcome the problems.

    tacos great, many choices- I recommend the ground beef soft tacos or choose three different ones for variety, the burrito was huge- brisket probably best and you should get a medal if you finish it! Recommend regular not spicy guacamole as the spicy is too hot.

    This was our first time to "El". Food was great. Everything freshly prepared to order. We tried 3 different Taco's all great and a mixed fajita. Also great. Portions sizes are good and after splitting between 2 of us, we were satisfied without an appetizer. Known for Margarita's, they were good but not outstanding, plus a little pricey at $9 each, had a lot of ice to mask smallish pour. They have a Margarita Monday deal at $3 and I would say at that price they are outstanding! Very loud so be prepared. Our server was phenominal, recommendations were spot on.

    My fiancé and I love this place. We bring our friends here and family because they all love good Mexican food and good drinks. I love the chili guava margarita and the tacos are so good. Also the guac is very good. It's right on the ave so you can walk around after dinner. Highly recommend el camino.

    This is the place to go for Taco Tuesday with $2 tacos, which are consistently tasty. This time we had carnitas, barbacoa, fish and carne asada. We had the spicy guacamole and it did not disappoint. We stay away from the overpriced and small margaritas (which are very good). They have reasonably priced wines by the glass for $7 and $9 sangria. Service was good. The restaurant is always busy on Tuesday nights so it is loud and difficult to hear others at the table.

    This was our fourth time to dine here. Our other three times were outstanding...great drinks and great food. This time, the drinks were still great, but the food was terrible. The cheese enchiladas were delivered cold and had very little cheese. Since the waiter was very busy with other customers, we did not have him take the food back. Since the drinks and guacamole are delicious, we will return. Probably won't be getting an entrée.

    We loved this restaurant! There are very few barely decent Mexican restaurants in our area but this one was not only good, but excellent, an elevated version. The service was great - the hostesses were very accommodating, the waitress was very knowledgeable & the manager even checked in to see how things were going although they were slammed. We loved the cool decor too which contributed to the atmosphere which is really laid back, lively and fun! It isn't a place you'd go for a quiet, romantic dinner because it's pretty loud, but it's a tequila bar after all. It gets pretty crowded & can get tight so be prepared to befriend your neighbor. We are looking forward to going back with friends as soon as possible.

    Being a Mexican living in the area for more than 15 years, for the first time I can eat "real" Mexican food! The tacos are real tacos, with soft corn tortillas and have a nice variety of them. Although I'm not a Tequila fan, they have an extensive list of Tequilas, and some good selection of beers and craft beers as well.
