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!

Very high sound level. Could not hear my SO across the table from me. Food, shrimp fajita, was over-spiced and not edible. When we complained, the manager explained that the server should have asked what level of spice we wanted; he did not do that. Drinks were small, overpriced, and lacking alcohol. More ice then drink. Removed from our list of favored restaurants.

Excellent food and cocktails. Great service from greeters to waitress. The only downside is the excessive noise level of the restaurant but it obviously was designed to encourage that type of atmosphere.

Great restaurant if you are seeking authentic Mexican food. Great drink menu and relaxed vibe. Pineapple Grove location is great for people watching. Service was slow but the food is great.

El Camino is a great spot. Great food, great service and a fun place to go. Taco Tuesday is always packed! Try the house made hot sauce, its excellent, I just wish they would sell it by the bottle again!

When you make a reservation and then they seat u by the bathroom and busboy station and as a bonus there is a dog under the table next to u and you inform the hostess and manager to no customer satisfaction and u find this all acceptable. Then this is the place 4 u

Never had a bad meal there yet...wait staff is wonderful and nice to see the same faces there all the time..
If I could suggest 1 thing maybe offer a smaller size of the nacho appetizer as too large and than we miss out on our usual BRISKET BURRITO

The waitress Jordan was phenomenal...great sense of humor, willing to take time to explain various items on the menu, attentive and really fast. She really enhanced the experience. As for the food, it was spectacular: rarely in a restaurant like that do they pay attention to the intricacies of seasoning, rarely do they make their own hot sauces, and salsas. The main courses were abundant and really tasty. It was a wonderful night out.

I am very greatful for the customer service given here. I had to add people to my reservation which I know is a pain in the butt but I’m really happy they made it work. The food was amazing and all of my out of town friends were very impressed.

It is so hard to get into this restaurant and we finally got a reservation. Loved it from start to finish. Excellent guacamole, food all around was yummy, great drinks and loved our waitress, Natalie (I think).
Fun place. Gotta go!

Went on Margarita Monday. $3 very good margaritas. Ordered brisket nachos between two people and couldn’t even finish that. Unbelievable value. Very lively on a Monday night. MNF was on screens above bar.

The drinks are always great. I highly recommend the watermelon jalapeño margarita. We have been dining here for a few years. It’s been one of our favorites. Unfortunately, food is not as good as it used to be.

This is wonderful food in my opinion-- better than back in Guadalajara. And the bar is unique in its variety of special mixed creations- or draft Negra Modelo. Also the only place that I can get Wahoo ceviche. I am a big fan. Consistently good with a lively vibe.
