    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!

    A delightful balance of industrial charm awaits your visit here, as well as sufficient outdoor dining space. A former garage, it has been transformed into a beautiful restaurant that invokes roadhouse cool, with fine dining excellence. We started with the "not your ordinary" queso. It came out in a bubbling pot reminiscent of a fondue, loaded with fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and onion. It was incredible. Next, we had the "gringo"( beef) tacos, the chicken tacos, and the enchiladas. All fantastic. IMO, the street corn side is a must, and we shared rice and beans, as well. We also did quac and salsas, all with a nice kick, but not overpowering. The flavors still came through. They also serve large disc like tortillas, which are great for customizing your dipping/ spooning experience. Finally, I don't normally order dessert, but so glad we did. The churros are filled with rich chocolate, and served with a chocolate sauce, and a vanilla cream. Amazing! They also have amazing cocktails. I had the dusk til dawn, a nicely balanced bourbon drink. My wife had a delicious spicy margarita. Finally, this restaurant should be on your radar if you are visiting New Haven, a show at Westville music bowl, or simply want to experience an incredible restaurant in CT. It is worth the drive from anywhere, AND you will enjoy creative takes on some of your favorite foods that you will not find anywhere else. Enjoy yourself!

    Fun place to have a get together and good meal. It’s very loud so be prepared to speak loudly to your party. Two tacos per order were generous—no extras so you’ll either want to get a side or another set of tacos or small dish. The sweet plantains with crema and a sprinkle of cheese were amazing! My friend ordered dessert and she loved it!

    Although we arrived on time for our reservation, we had to wait for about 20 minutes to be seated. Since there were a number of empty tables, I think they must be short-staffed. They were very apologetic, and once we were seated, our server was excellent. The food is just delicious. The duck tacos are my favorite, but a close second is the al pastor. Street corn, plantains, the grilled caesar salad are all outstanding. This was my second visit, and I'll be returning soon!

    Food here is always excellent. Last night's meal was perfect all the way around from the queso flameado to the tacos de birria to the mexican street corn and the pina colada creme brule. We love it. They are also very GF conscious which is great because my wife has Celiac. Be sure to make a reservation several days ahead if you want to go at dinnertime. It's a popular spot!

    We came to Camacho Garage to have dinner before a concert at Westville Music Bowl. The food, as always, was very good. But our service was absolutely terrible. We had a reservation for 4, but had other friends coming and politely asked if it would be possible to move to the large, available, high top table and combine the two groups into a party of 8. The server begrudgingly said “I’ll go check”. After about 5 minutes of standing awkwardly next to our table waiting, one member of our party politely approached the hostess to confirm that they’d be able to accommodate all 8 of us at the high top (which was still sitting there, empty and clean). The hostess rudely snapped at my friend that they were “taking care of it”. At this point, we had no reason to be unsatisfied with our service - but my friend said the tone of the hostess was very clearly annoyed, and rude. They eventually re-seated us about 5 minutes later. I know that changing a reservation is a pain - but we were incredible polite, and even said “no worries at all if not we can split up!” And we still received this snarky treatment. The next strike was when the server dropped off our drinks, and began quickly walking away - my friend, who was prepared to ask to put in our food order, said “oh excuse me- do you mind if we put in our food order?” (Remember, we were going to a concert and on a schedule - and made sure to leave ourselves plenty of time). How did the server respond? I kid you not - she ROLLED HER EYES. And then begrudgingly took our order. It was clear she didn’t like us. The third strike was when we asked for “one more beer, another margarita, and the check please”. We got the check immediately. After 10 minutes (trust me, I was counting), I looked up to see our drinks sitting in the bar service well. And our server gabbing with another server. After waiting another 5 min, I went and politely asked her for those two drinks, and pointed to them. She sighed, and brought them. So yeah, bad.

    Great aesthetics. Service was friendly and competent, if a bit slow at times. Food was great, with some unique flavor combinations I haven't seen in other Mexican restaurants. Guacamole, which is obviously standard Mexican fare, was perhaps the freshest and best tasting I can recall eating. Good happy hour specials.

    First time!! Lives up to the hype! Loved that I asked for the tacos I dip and they brought me exactly I thought!! Corn on the cob was in sane!!! and the Guacamole was great! Only gripe was there was more guacamole than chips, we asked for more chips and now had more chips than guacamole ( first world problem ) but when we got our bill we noticed we were charged $4.00 for “more chips” I don’t mind paying but it seemed like they were complimentary. Not a big deal, Can’t wait to go back!!
