    I had a party of 7 booked for a Team Celebration for work. Made the reservation through Open Table which is always Quick and Easy. When I arrived the host initially told me that I had to wait until at least 5 people from the party were present at the restaurant before we could be seated. She then told me I could sit at the bar if I wanted to until they arrived. Although I was a little taken back by this and her cold delivery (we come once a month and have never been asked to wait for 5 or more people to be present) I took a seat at the bar as instructed. That is where I encountered Mikey who changed the entire mood I was in. He was SO KIND, his bright smile and warm greeting made me instantly forget the frigid reception I received from the host. He assured me that he'd be our server and he'd be happy to get us all situated. As more of my party arrived he made sure we were able to be seated, he gave me a complimentary flute glass of something tasty and continued to provide AMAZING service throughout the evening. He worked so hard for us and was truly the bright spot of our evening there. When I come to Camacho with my friends (at least twice a month) he provides the same amazing service as well, which is honestly the main reason I return and bring my staff. THESE are the people we need more of. With the rising cost of EVERYTHING this is the type of service you don't mind paying for.

    Prices were raised way too high, we loved coming here because it was affordable but now it’s too much. We brought friends here because we thought they’d love it, but even they said for two tacos it’s too expensive.

    If your looking for good vibes and ambiance, Camacho Garage definitely has it. However, what they make up in aesthetic, they lack I quality when it comes to food. In my opinion, the food is way over priced and just lacking in flavor. I order the Al Pastor Tacos and I was simply disappointed. The Margaritas were okay but your better off coming here soppy for drinks. The food just isn’t up to par.

    Unfortunately after receiving our drinks and an appetizer we found out that the kitchen lost 3 employees the night before. So after waiting over an hour for our meals we paid our tan for the drinks and appetizer and left. It would have been nice to be made aware of the situation beforehand.

    Camacho is an outstanding, authentically Mexican restaurant nestled in a neighborhood on the outskirts of New Haven. It has great character and great food. It is open air. Best margaritas in New Haven.

    It was a birthday for a family member. 6 of us. At 4pm on a Sunday. Music was extremely loud to where we could barely hear ourselves talk. Food was overpriced and just ok. Won’t be back. It’s bar food not a place to dine.

    I used to come here a lot since the food was really really good but lately I notice that is not that good anymore. The birria and carnitas tacos used to be better in the past, the pork is dry and kind of “refried” and full of fat! So disssapointed!

    Third visit in a month. Does not disappoint! Not on the menu: scrumptious duck confit tacos. Ask for those for a real flavor party! However, the simpler chicken ones were equally delicious.

    The food was tasty but one member of our party found a piece of plastic in his enchiladas. They were very apologetic and took it off the bill, but would expect more care for this type of restaurant. Drinks, service and atmosphere were top notch!

    Anniversary dinner in our old Westville neighborhood Big fans of chef Arturo back to his Roomba and Bespoke days. Never disappoints! Clever cocktails, love the retro gas station decor. The plantains in crema should not be missed! A great share as was the bubbling cauldron of queso. We picked 3 tacos to share. Each comes with 2 and 2 orders would’ve been plenty. We took the 3rd order home. The fish taco and the chicken one were both complex and yummy. Then the waitress (Jann) surprised us with a little bubbly. Top notch!! All around. I’ve read reviews about it being expensive and portions small. Order wisely. The food is amazing and would be impossible for me to recreate at home. It’s totally worth a splurge!
