  • "El Camion offers great food at not too crazy a price... The tacos and guac were fresh, and the elote was excellent. The only criticism i have is that it gets very loud, because it is a small place. But even then it wasn't TOO loud. Great spot!"

  • "My husband and I spent New Years Eve, which is also his birthday, at El Camion. Though it was crowded, the service and quality of food were not affected whatsoever. The ambiance of the restaurant was dim, warm, and cozy. There was definitely a family atmosphere, which was nice, which didn't adversely affect my date-night! I would definitely return - the food was delicious!"

  • "El Camion was a great restaurant myself and my cousin's girlfriend went to. I enjoy eating Mexican food and this place was a great spot in the lower east side. The place did get packed but as I made sure to make reservations. The service was good, it wasn't great. The food was yummy. I had shrimp fajitas, I must say the shrimps were juicy and cooked thoroughly. Their white wine sangria was refreshing and hit the spot. Overall my experience wonderful. I would recommend it."

  • "Went here for a bday dinner - SO good. The drinks were amazing (esp. the ginger beyatch) and the chicken quesadillas were the best EV.ER."

  • "I love El Camion. I go there often and have written several good reviews. I have to write a review for this most recent experience because it was so disappointing. I made a late reservation. When I showed up with my friends, the man kept saying, "We close at 11." His tone was very rude. I asked him if he wanted us to leave. "We close at 11." I asked if we needed to leave or if we could stay. "We close at 11." So you want us to leave then? "We close at 11." That's the only thing he would say to us. A waitress came over and was very nice and accommodating. She was the only good part about our service. I am very disappointed with how I was treated. If you don't want people in your restaurant, don't accept late reservations. Or lock the door."
