Food was average yet expensive for quality and portion size.
Service was good. COVID precautions were good except for bar area. NO social distancing at all.

This was my 5th time visiting and it seems to be getting worse each time. The drinks are great, but the food not so much. I’m assuming they are going with a “California” type style of Mexican and it just isn’t working. The food is over cooked and dry. The restaurant has a cool style, but the noise is crazy. Even during COVID with limited guests the noise really carries. I was hopeful for something in the Wilmington area similar to Agave in Lewes, but it just doesn’t do it. Platinum Group needs to regroup and figure this one out.

In all honesty I thought the food was good and the staff were excellent. My one and only negative is that there were No healthy options and the dinner menu was more limited than the lunch menu. Additionally, there was a choice for chicken tacks for kids but not adults. I would love to see a non fried, heavily buttered or oiled option. A salad with fajita chicken or steak perhaps? Having said that, the salsa was fresh and loved it. The drinks were very well made and loved them, too. As for the staff, the could not have been more friendly.

This was our first experience here and it was very good. We will be back. They start you off with chips and salsa which were very good. Fresh chips and Great salsa. Food ordered in our party was fajitas (16 spice chicken), carnitas enchiladas, and beef enchiladas. Entrees came with beans and rice. All was good but the 16 spice chicken really stood out as outstanding. Atmosphere is nice and noise level is moderately quiet. It was a little pricey but presentation was great and quality is more upscale than some other restaurants serving Mexican cuisine. We all really enjoyed it and will be back to try other menu items. One last comment: highly recommend the churros to end your meal. These were phenomenal and a perfect ending.

Even with pandemic restrictions, elected to eat inside vs at attractive outdoor seating in a windy environment. Felt very comfortable at widely spaced tables in El Camino's open decor.
Shrimp tacos were tasty and accompanied by delicious sides of rice and beans.
Service was attentive but not intrusive. Were allowed to linger for a chat over refills of ice tea.
Plan to return in a couple of weeks.
