This was a fun place to go. We had plans at 7:30 so arrived and were seated immediately at 5:15pm. It was already buzzing. We were surprised and disappointed to find out that it was happy hour but our table was not included--what?? Anyway, margarita was good, food was fresh, hot when it was supposed to be. I had the chicken fajita. Everything (veggies, seasoning and came out piping hot) was good except the quality of the chicken itself. Really big servings. The waitress was attentive and really helpful.

Was happy to see this restaurant on Open Table as we have tried to go there before and never wanted to wait for a table. Happened to be $3 margarita nite on Monday so that was a pleasant surprise. Food was good, but poblano in chile rellanos could have been cooked a little more. Was less tender than usual.

Restaurant was not overcrowded but the bar was busy and noisy.It didn't help that 1 woman at the bar was screaming at the top of her lungs at another person at the bar!I am surprised that no manager asked her to lower her voice!

The hostess is very unfriendly but the food is generally good. With that said, I've been there twice in the past two weeks and this time my salad had a curly hair in it. The waitress said they would remake it. I ordered a taco while I waited. They brought another salad quite a bit later, after my friend was done eating, but I had no fork since it was taken with the hairy salad. The waitress went to refill drinks before getting me a fork so I still couldn't eat my salad. They still charged for everything, no apologies, really poor customer service.

We went to El Camino on a Tuesday night, expecting a somewhat subdued evening, but this place was anything but! A couple of classic margaritas and a few $2 tacos and we left very full and very satisfied. Definitely will go again!

Had a very enjoyable dinner for three couples vacationing in Delray Beach, FL. Very fun, energetic bar/restaurant scene - not a good place for a quiet, romantic date night - but a great place for a fun night out. Good, efficient wait staff. A variety of different Margaritas, and specialty drinks, and a separate menu of tequilas, with over two hundred different varieties. If you have a tequila fetish, this is the place to go. The food was very good - two of us had steak fajitas (yum), two had the combo tacos (crispy fish, spicy chicken, veggie), one had a beef burrito, one had chicken quesidilla. All plates were plentiful and delicious. Everyone was very salisfied with their meals. All in all, a very good meal in the foodie fantasy world that is Delray Beach. We will definitely be back on future visits to Delray Beach.

While the food was wonderful and always is, I was there celebrating a birthday and the service was not that great. When I made the reservation, I wrote that a high chair was needed, there would be six of us, and that we were celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival they put us in the larger booths. These are not comfortable to fit 6 people. When I brought up that a high chair was needed again, they said that the booth aisle was not allowed to have high chairs there. This proved as an issue seeing as we had a 1 year old with us. And to see the booth behind us got moved to a table that accommodated a high chair before we did when we arrived earlier than they did and brought this issue up to our waiter upon arrival and we arrived with a baby was upsetting. It took multiple trips and eventually $20.00 to even get them to help us get a table that would fit the party better with the originally requested high chair. Not that the restaurant is baby friendly, but seeing as it was requested many times and was ignored every time makes me question why they continue to be busy other than the amazing food. The wait staff were rushed and forgot half of our requests made when ordering and it wasn't until the new waiter took over at the new table an hour later when we finally got to order our actual meal next to an alley that smelled like garbage the entire time. I hoped for better seeing as when I come with one other to eat i never have an issue.

If you enjoy screaming across the table in order to have a conversation, thus is your place.
Drunks were leaving empty glasses on our table as well.
I ordered a burrito and for an enchilada
I blame that on the extremely loud atmosphere , which is off the charts

This place is two incompatible things simultaneously -- 1, a truly superb modern, creative-yet-inspired-by--traditional-food Mexican Restaurant, with a gifted chef who knows what he's doing and knows what he wants to achieve, and for the most part achieves it with panache (only the Wahoo ceviche disappointed), with some Mex-inspired "California cuisine" thrown in, and 2, one of those noisy-beyond-belief bar / social meeting places for millennials., with exposed-everything "non-ceilings" that provide a visual mood that befits the food, but also provide echo-chamber acoustics that magnify the energetic noisiness. It's a delicious "dinner" with too much "din." If you want to go for the food, take ear stopples and plan on nonverbal communication with your dining companion(s).

We have lived in Delray Beach for several years now, but this was our first visit to El Camino. Now we know why reservations in season can be hard to get. Jason at the bar made great margaritas. The food was authentic and plentiful. Prices are quite moderate for downtown Delray Beach. The service was excellent. The manager stopped by twice just to check on things. Dinner at El Camino was terrific.
