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!

We have been to el camino before and what draws us back is the excellent food for a reasonable cost. We keep trying to find a time to go when it’s not as crowded or noisy...this time wasn’t it. It was annoying too because when we arrived we were told that the people at our table had just gotten their check so it would be a few minutes...and yet there were other empty tables in the room...so that was just annoying. We figure we’ll try again tho...the food is great!

Overall good, but the meat in the barbacoa/brisket enchilada was dry. Disappointing as this was the main course; otherwise would have very good.

The drinks were very good, and I can't compliment our server enough. He was so personable, and energetic & made fabulous recommendations. It's definitely very loud in there, but not something that bothered us. My husband lovedddd the housemade hotsauce !

Usually enjoy eating here, and this time as usual service was fantastic. Waiter was great, and management came over twice to check on us. One issue though, we sat at a table during “happy hour” and was told no happy hour pricing was available. This is fine except the table 2 feet away from us was given Happy Hour all evening. When we asked, the waiter explained there were a couple “special” happy hour tables and that in the future we should ask the people sitting next to us to order drinks. I completely disagree with this setup and would expect a restaurant of this caliber to either day “bar only” happy hour or do it for the whole restaurant. Not for tables right next to tables you make pay full price. Left a bitter taste in my mouth, of a place we frequent regularly.

What I am about to say it’s because I care and this had been my favorite restaurant for the last couple years. Whoever decided to change the ingredients needs to be fired, the new tortillas for the tacos taste like what you get at Walmart or Taco Bell , ordered steak tacos what kind of meat is being ordered now???
Seriously you don’t fix what’s not broken, go back to the way things where before, the food was amazing, now None of my friends want to go back. Again this is not to bash on this place, the food was amazing, just please don’t destroy it by going cheap and saving on cheaper ingredients, the end result is not the same and frankly first time I’m ever disappointed.
Hopefully they fix things, the food has always been good please don’t ruin it

As a born Texan, I'm always on the hunt for really delicious, highly flavored TexMex style food. Cuban and Mexican food is nothing like authentic TexMex (for us any way :) ), but El Camino does like nobody else in South Florida. Add to that the fun of downtown Delray and you've got a perfect and memorable evening every time. You can dress DRB Sexy or come casual, either way, it all blend perfectly here! Don't miss it!

We like El Camino’s food and the value compared to most of the restaurants in downtown is quite reasonable. The one drawback is the noise volume. The bar gets really busy and noisy to the point that it is difficult time listening to a conversation across the table. Overall we have dined here often and will continue, as the food, staff and margaritas are great!

The Margaritas were up their with some of the best I’ve ever had. We went on a Monday for the $3 margarita special and LOVED it. The nachos are a must and can feed 10 people easily. The tacos were delicious, I had Carne Asada, Shrimp and Fish. We can’t wait to go back!!

It was a great experience overall as per usual! Our service was great, I really love how they train their employees as it is always great & friendly service. Food is just delicious, the brisket on the nachos was a little dry but still good. The only thing is that it is very loud, if you are trying to talk with family or friends you have to shout over the music and everyone else shouting.

Date night with my Camilla. Best Margaritas in the state. Music was a bit off and too loud. (Some rap club music... give me Mexican feel) Moses is a great waiter complete professional and recommended a great mezcal for my spicy avocado margarita. Fajitas and guacamole were perfection as always.

Nice evening with family. We happened on $3 margarita night and were pleasantly surprised the quality was top notch even on the special. Tacos were excellent, we had gringo, barbacoa, and crispy fish - all good. Chicken fajitas were spicy but not hot and came with lots of great sides. Only downside was high level of noise that made it hard to talk.

Had a reservation and wasn’t very busy. We were sat quickly. Waiter was nice. Food is good as expected. My complaint is about the wait for the food, took unnecessarily long today. Feels like our order was lost of something. And the size of appetizer guacamole was wayyyyy too small for $9!
