    Lakes good service. Had to ask for who was taking our table after people seated after us greeted and drinks and nachos brought to table. Drinks taken 10 min later server comes back and says what we’re they again can’t read my writing… Aghhh

    My husband and I dined at El Camino Mexican Kitchen last night before our movie. We ordered the Mexican street corn for our appetizer, which was amazing! It’s a definite “must have”! Of course we had their grande margaritas made with our favorite Padron reposadp tequila. You can customize any Margarita with their extensive list of tequilas. Our entrees were shrimp fajitas and salmon tampiqueña; both were delicious. The service could not have been better: friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. North Wilmington is lucky to have this top notch restaurant so conveniently located.

    Service was not very attentive. Manager seemed busy constantly reminding employees to attend to tables, eat in the break room and not the kitchen, and leave the break room. Food was OK. Nachos were a little soggy and complimentary chips were not fresh made

    The food at El Camino is always very good. I splurged on the chimichanga which is serious comfort food but so worth the calories. Server was attentive and friendly. We sat outside, and it was very pleasant. Also, I like that their salsa has enough body that it doesn’t all drip off the chip on it’s way to your mouth.

    Dined many times El Camino - it’s a very well run and authentic Mexican restaurant. Team is trained and coached well, attentive and personable too. Have sampled across the entire menu and simply no dish disappoints … the drinks too are impressive with most margaritas offered in no less than four sizes. We’ll be back again.

    Food and drinks were amazing. I had grilled shrimp and Mexican street corn special, so awesome and fresh and grilled to perfection. The El Camino margaritas were excellent and so were the white sangria. The Mexican Sunday was certainly enough for 4 people. Staff was friendly and super attentive. Definitely be back and would recommend this place!

    Chips and salsa great . Had the loaded guac….Very little flavor was definitely missing something . The street corn was excellent it was our favorite thing we got. I ordered the filet mignon fajitas and they were horrible. Very little meat and was burnt and hard to chew they were awful. Couldn’t even get the stuff off the plate it was all burnt to it. Filet should be tender this was like a hockey puck. Would not order again. I didn’t say anything I probably should have I just hate doing that knowing how short staffed everyone is. My significant other had the carne asada and it was just ok. Best part of the meal was the service and the corn. Our server was excellent!

    Beautiful ambience. Waiter pleasant but “off” in timing. Pushing to take order but hadn’t brought salsa or chips. Then ordering appetizer Chile con queso$11 resulted in half the chips with sauce that quickly went cold ? Microwaved? Shrimp fajitas had 6shrimp? (Should warn consumer) and heavily charred veggies. It is not a “new favorite” Mexican to return to

    First time here. Nice atmosphere. Read about the filet mignon fajitas and decided to order-- sad to say the meat was dry and charred. Margaritas a bit sour-- like a mix. Would go again-- but might get something different. Service was attentive.

    It was a dark and stormy night when we arrived at the El Camino, one of our two favorite Mexican Kitchens. Luckily, we made our reservation with Open Table, because, it was pretty crowded. Our waiter Jan (pronounced Yawn, Dutch ancestry) very nice, very new, but very attentive and willing and ready to learn. We started off with Stuffed Jalapenos, wrapped in bacon (awesome), nice heat, not too much. I ordered the Pollo en Fuego with hot rice. Loved it. The wife ordered the Chili Rellenos. She loved it!! The last time we were there, I believe we got the Filet Mignon Fajitas. Not good, burnt, etc. We put that down to that it was just afte the pandemic let us go to eateries again and they were having trouble staffing. This trip was a much better experience. Topped it off with Churros and a flight of tequila. Great time. And the people just kept coming in the whole time we were there. Wish I had taken some photos.

    Our first time here. We liked the atmosphere, the food was very good and the portions large. We had the chicken chimichanga, chicken fajitas and short rib nachos. What really stood out for me was our waiter. He was attentive, informative and really seemed to love his job and sharing information about the restaurant and the menu. We all enjoyed our meals and hope to be back again.
