Excellent food. Monday is $3.00 margarita night and the drinks were very good. Server and manager were very attentive despite the huge crowd and went out of their way to make the evening enjoyable.

The food is AMAZING, the servers are great, and the managers are always on the floor. If you never tried El Camino you are missing out. The only thing is I didn't care for their desserts (I only tried two out of three). The nutella flan and the tres leches but I must say I'm not a big fan of flan and the leches was a BIG slice of cake. But after eating the amazing food you probably won't have room for dessert. This restaurant should definitely be ranked higher!!!!

I reserved the table a week in advance and asked for a booth by the bar. I didn’t get it and had to pay full price for everything we ordered, including the drinks. Happy hour should be for the whole restaurant when your bar space is so limited and always crowded. Who can even eat tacos standing up with a drink in their hand?! I won’t be doing taco Tuesday there anymore because it really isn’t taco Tuesday if you are a working individual who can’t go physically reserve a seat well before 4pm 😑

Food was outstanding, and a great location in Pineapple Grove. Unfortunately the restaurant is very loud and tables are pretty close together.

Always excellent —this is one of our favorite places in Delray. The avocado salad is delicious as are the burritos and enchiladas. We started with a flight of tequila—an interesting and fun way to begin a fine meal

I have not been getting any points for my reservations. I have had 1200 points for the longest time. Last month when i was in california I didn't receive any points, and now in Florida i didnt receive any points. I would appreciate it very much if you could straighten out this situation. Thank you very much barry Goldring

Eaten here many times before. This experience was not up to par. We had to wait for our reservation for over 20 minutes. Drink order was over charged at the bar, waiter twice messed up the order because he didn't listen, and the food was average.

Great Mexican restaurant with a solid following. Reservations are a must any time after 5 PM unless you want to stand in line. Large portions with very fresh and tasty ingredients. Service is very professional and fast. Tacos, burrito, quesadilla, chili rellenos were all excellent. The avacado salad is exceptional. Good margaritas and beer selection. Parking garage almost across the street is free except on weekends.

We were told by the waitress that there was a fish special. WE were told that the mahi mahi
was brought in fresh that morning. My husband and I ordered the special. The fish didn't taste fresh and later that evening we both had stomach cramps.

We had a great dining experience. The service was great and the food was awesome. We had the pork and beef brisket enchiladas, these were probably some of the best enchiladas we've had. Looking forward to our next visit.

El Camino is one of the hottest places in Delray Beach. The food is some of the best Mexican I have had in South Florida and the portions are very large. The atmosphere is very energetic and the service is impeccable. Highly recommend for a casual outing or special occasion. Make reservations ahead of time as the weekends are very popular.

Very fun busy noisy evening. Charming hard working staff. Food came out very quickly. All efficient and professional. Great drinks. I highly recommend the Grapes of Wrath! Yummy ceviche, guacamole and brisket. Valet stand right outside. In sight of the 100 foot Christmas tree. A very satisfying first night in Delray!
