As a professional chef, gourmand and overall food lover, we enjoyed the presentation, tastes and variety of choices at Camacho. We will definitely return.
We were a bit disappointed , however, in the lack of check in from our server, who was great when he was attentive, but we needed just a little more. Especially as we were not happy with one of our items and as he did not appear until wrapping things up, it was too late to resolve the matter.
We loved the architecture, the physical environment, the music, the food.
We do not love your chairs, very uncomfortable!

The service was fast, even on a busy Sunday at lunchtime. I've eaten here before, and thought I'd try it again as a place to take a friend for her birthday. We liked many things: the street corn, the esquites tlayuda, each of which we shared, and enjoyed immensely. We also ordered the croquetas de jaiba and the fish taco. The croquetas were a bit of a disappointment: they seemed overcooked, and the oily crust overwhelmed the more delicate contents. The fish taco was also disappointing: the construction did not invite eating by hand, and the accompaniments ON the taco were way to wait to do so even if one were to try. Lastly: the waitstaff should alert the customer that the cold-brew coffee is "nitro," which is not the same, and not preferred by everyone.

Reservations are a must. The ambiance is super chill and the staff are really friendly. Our waitress Adrienne knew all of the specials and answered every questioned we had without hesitation. Food was delicious and the spicy margarita was so good.

The vibe and service were great, but the food missed for us. The shrimp and cocktail ceviches were lacking a lot of acid, which is the major component of a ceviche. Meat was generally oversalted in the tacos and quesadilla, and the birria consume was lacking depth in flavor. The curly fries were great but it’s a Mexican street food place and the fact that this was our favorite dish was a bit disappointing. Likely won’t go back unfortunately.

The guacamole was outstanding and quite a good sized serving. It was a pleasure to be able to sit outside; even though it is a busy street, the traffic noise was not terribly distracting. Music playing in the restaurant easily allowed for conversation. We did find the fish tacos to be a bit small and containing way too much onion. We were a bit disappointed at the number of lunch options available for non-meat eaters. Overall, a good and tasty experience...

Great atmosphere, wonderful food, and great service! First time there and were surprised to find out it is owned by same people who own Shell and Bones. That explains a lot! Parking can be difficult but there is a public lot on Whalley (with free EV chargers) within a 5 minute walk.

Highly recommend and will be going back soon!

Dinner was absolutely amazing. We shared the chicken and fish tacos which were to die for and of course ended with the most delectable churros to finish. We can’t wait to go back.

We had one of their family style meals. The food was excellent. Great mix of spicy and savory. Plus eating family style was fun. Only downside might be that their delicious drinks are kind of small and expensive.

Food was ok. Some of the dishes have changed so I was a little confused when we got our food. What I found to be weird was I asked for a larger margarita....so basically a bigger glass which literally every place in the universe will do for an up charge. I was told “no we can’t do that”. I mean technically you can do it you should just say you won’t. I didn’t mind paying an up charge for the drink but being told no for basically no reason was annoying. A lot of times drinks have to much mixer or are to sweet, this is what I was trying to avoid but apparently they won’t make accommodations here. They wanted you to order another drink so they can make more money which makes no sense because you would still make more money by up charging. Honestly service has been a issue here the times I’ve been here. It takes forever for someone to come take your order and last time we waited almost 15 min just for drinks. Food comes out fast is is just “ok”. I’ll spend my money on closer places downtown if it means better service.

The food was loaded with MSG which made me and my friends sick. For the second time in a row. Please do something about this as I won’t be able to eat there anymore and will make it a point to alert others with chemical sensitivity’s that they should avoid this restaurant.

Otherwise the staff and atmosphere are great!
