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!

    I have seen good reviews and have had this restaurant recommended by many....and it did not disappoint. Ate lunch there today. Server and service was terrific. Food came in a timely manner. The food was delicious. The guacamole and queso were great to start. We had tacos, burritos and enchiladas....everyone liked what they ordered. The serving sizes are generous...we all took a box home. Nice ambiance and good prices. Will definitely return!

    The best avocado salad ever. The chicken burrito was just delicious as were the brisket nachos. If I had a complaint it would be that the Margarita's are so small they are about two sips. Not worth $14.

    Restaurant was recommended to us as we hadn’t tried it as we frequented Rocco’s tacos. We were so disappointed with the food quality, the service and the noise level. No comparison to Rocco’s

    Everything was great, a little loud but it was Friday night so we expected it. I gave my server my card ahead of time so my boyfriend didn’t get to pay lol. He was great and on point! He helped me choose a sweet drink which was a kiwi-mint. My drink was perfect and I couldn’t help but get another one. I wish I remembered his name. I remember our check having “Mo” on it. Our food was really great too, didn’t take too long either. That was filling as well.

    This place is awesome. It was my birthday and favorite place to eat and get drinks. I always order the brisket quesadilla. It also happened to be taco Tuesday so I had a carne Asada taco also. We had guacamole and chips. I also had a blood orange margarita. Overall the experience was amazing as usual. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent food! Sadly, the margaritas are very small and overpriced. With that said, I will remember to stick with a nonalcoholic beverage or a beer. I would return for the food.

    We eat at El Camino multiple times a month / regulars. Main entrees from kitchen took way longer than usual on Sunday afternoon. Quite a few tables cleared out shortly after we arrived around 1:30. Hard to believe kitchen was still in the weeds for entrees to take about 45 min. Service was very good though.

    I've been meaning to write a review for some time...but this is the restaurant not to miss when visiting Delray Beach. The ambience is exactly what you'd want for a restaurant - comfortable wood seats, music in the background, lively crowd, yet not so loud that you can't hear the person you're with. The wait staff are welcoming and attentive. Indeed the entire restaurant staff are welcoming. Now to the food, the quality of Mexican dishes and assorted specialty margaritas are superb! Taco Tuesday is the best way to explore the tacos for $2 each, the pork belly is my favorite, but there are also veggie options as well. Just a tip, make reservations for Tuesday. Also, happy hour begins daily at 4 PM in the bar area, with the tables adjacent. For appetizers - I've tried the Mexican street corn (delish), warm chicharrones (yum) and the smoked brisket Nachos. The portion sizes are huge! The table next to you could easily share those nachos and you'll still have plenty for your group. Just leave room for the Tacos!

    The food was quite good. I had the Wahoo ceviche which was very good. I also had (and so did my dining partner) the barbacoa and Carnitas taco. She also had the vegetarian taco. They were all excellent. The server, however left a lot to be desired. He was neither friendly or enthusiastic, nor particularly attentive. Even worse he had trouble listening and speaking. He mumbled a lot and spoke so quietly that it was very difficult to understand him. I ordered a beer, and he mumbled something that I had to ask three times what he was saying. The answer finally was "got it". He also got our orders incorrect and mumbled something about pork belly which is not what was ordered. Luckily my partner picked this us and asked him about it and assured him neither of us had said pork belly. Very poor interaction. He did however have the presence of mind to ask if I wanted chips with my ceviche, which I did.
