El Camino Mexican Soul Food - Mezcal & Tequila Bar - Fort Lauderdale
We are committed to offering the freshest organic and local ingredients where possible, and we value local, artisan, indigenous and reclaimed offerings. We are even taking the not so typical step of making our own tortillas, sauces, and anything else possible from scratch. The list of craft cocktails is truly Mexican and includes house made sangritas, a curated selection of agave spirits, a diverse selection of craft and Mexican beers. In the end, it is all about sharing the food with the community of people who enjoy it. Viva México!
I took my girlfriend out for an experience in Las Olas. After our experience we decided to grab lunch at El Camino for happy hour. One of the best places to visit for happy hour for multiple reasons. Two Dollar tacos, $5 Margaritas & great music! Most def will visit again.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere.
Excellent food and environment! Chips were warm, salsas were great! The guac was flavorless but we should have ordered the spicy one and accidentally ordered regular guac so that’s on us. The tacos, quesadillas and fajitas were all flavorful and delicious!
El Camino food and drinks are great, main reason we come here. What really takes away from it is the staff. ALWAYS rude. Hostess never smiles and doesn’t take into account your reservation or waiting time unless asked numerous times. We had a reservation at 9:15 and showed up about 10 minutes early. The hostess said “just a moment” and ignored us for another 15 minutes. When I got a text to check in for my reservation, all of the sudden a table was ready(this table had been empty and set since we got there) our waitress was not very friendly, and made recommendations on drinks when we asked. Two of us did not like what we ordered (not her fault) and politely asked to switch them after taking 1 sip. She acted as if we were being completely unreasonable and a huge hassle. We really love the food and the ambiance but have never had good experience with the staff. Such a shame
If you have the opportunity to dine here, do it! Our food and drinks were fantastic and everyone had a different dish. We’ve been here numerous times and every time we have consistently had excellent food and excellent service.
Irwin was our waiter and he was wonderful. He made great suggestions for our drinks and was very personable. He even suggested a comparable restaurant in Raleigh since he remembered that I was just visiting and from that area.
We will definitely be back and hopefully soon!
Exceptional location, great food and great vibe
Excellent food. Very, very noisy ! Not a place for aconversation.
Nuestra primera experiencia fue increíble,fuimos a festejar el cumple de mi novio y futuro marido!!
Gracias totales!!,volveremos pronto!!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Trendy, very loud ambience. Great avocado and chips. Brisket Quesadilla was very good.
The food and speed of service was great. However, it took about 15 minutes to be seated even though I had reservation. We arrived at 8:25 for a 8:30 reservation. We checked in and we were sat down at 8:45. And the only other thing was my boss ordered a coca-cola and it took about 15 min to get his drink. He also received a refill with paper in the cup. It appeared to be a piece of a paper towel. But other than those things everything else was great.
Food was absolutely amazing. Best taco Tuesday ever. Guacamole 👍🏼👍🏼
Too loud. Like club loud. Yelling across the table and still had troubles hearing. Louder than usual
Always a fun time, food is hit or miss... drinks could be stronger!
Food was just ok. The drinks were really good though.
We have been here but only for happy hour. Made reservations restaurant called to confirm while talking to them I asked if we could be seated in lounge or dining area that served happy hour. I was informed lounge was first come first serve but could be seated in dining happy hour area. We were seated in a non-happy hour area. Why would i pay full price for drinks when I can sit in dining area or stand in bar and get happy hour prices. We moved our reservation time to a time to be seated after happy hour and stood in bar and enjoyed happy hour until the new reservation time. This was for our daughters 22nd birthday and there were 7 of us so could have done without the confusion which is why I asked when they called to confirm. Otherwise food was good and both servers (in bar and in dining room) were pleasant.
Never been there where it’s been this loud. Also, people smoking basically right where you walk in. Usually have a really good experience here but not so much tonight.
Very loud to go and have a conversation.
The food and service was phenomenal. Great experience.
Best beef fajitas anywhere in South Florida! The tequila list is amazing and they make a great margarita...not too sweet, not too sour. Pretty noisy inside, recommend the outside seating as it's quieter with great people watching on Las Olas. Great service too!
The food and service were outstanding. It was a little bit too noisy and I had trouble carry on a conversation with my husband. He ordered the chicken fajitas which were the best he’s had. I got the taco combo which was a great variety. We shared chips and salsa. Everything was freshly prepared and served hot. Great meal! We will be back.
Great List of tequila and mezcals. Food and service was “okay”. Great for drinks!
Tequila drinks were great. The server seemed really annoyed to even have to wait on us.
We were given a table just beside the bar between a huge speaker and a few tall tables in bar that you stand at. We could not have a conversation. We couldn’t hear each other. The three people with me got their meals on time. They said food was good but definitely on the spicey side. Our miserable server misheard what I wanted and had to reorder my meal which came out after everyone else was finished with their meals. I had it wrapped up yo take home. A Manager never came and apologized.
Tequila drinks and food good. If you try this spot I hope you do it get miss sunshine as your server.
The environment was fun and we enjoyed our experience good food fantastic strawberry mango margarita.
Service was great food is always excellent - only negative is the noise level
Food it’s always great, my family and I love going to gather together for a good meal, the only problem I have with that restaurant is with their guacamole it’s way over price $9.00 for such a ridiculous small amount they give you, they serve it in a typical guacamole bowl but you only get a 1/4 of the bowl of guacamole.. in Florida avocados are very cheap and the amount served for that price it’s no more then 11/2 avocado, meanwhile their queso fundido which ingredients are of a higher cost then avocados and it’s so delicious is price for $10, my suggestion will be if you are gonna use the same guacamole bowls the other restaurants use for similar price then serve fill the bowl up like any other Mexican restaurant do, this is the only thing that I wish they will correct or change the price lower for what you are getting, sad cause I love this restaurant and I love guacamole, but I will never order it anymore cause I feel ripped off, but the rest of the food I’ve not been disappointed yet !!
It was wretched. Been to the Delray location many times for a great night. This all tasted like it was microwaved the night before and reheated before serving to us. Simply terrible.
Ivionna is always our waitress because she's the BEST!!! She's very attentive and just cool!! The food was amazing as always!!!
Thos place absolutely rocks! The food menu isn't large or elaborate but everything on the menu is absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the street corn/elote, the combo steak & shrimp fajitas and the coconut trees leche cake!!
The food and service were wonderful. It was a bit noisy, but that was expected.
Outstanding food and service
excellent food and drinks.
drinks were awesome.
First time there and would recommend it to everyone
Went to dinner August 18, 2019. Excellent shrimp and chicken fajitas
I love the place energy and friendly people and the food delicious
Very cute place with great drinks! Too loud and food was mediocre. Our waiter was great!
Way too noisy. I do not recommend it for families with young children.
Went for lunch with a friend visiting and had a great experience. The service is exceptional -from managers to servers everyone works together and seems to enjoy what they do. We never had to ask for anything. We had the ceviche, guacamole and salsa to start. Then we had the we tried of tacos - fish, shrimp and spicy chicken for me. All was exceptional. The 50/50 margaritas are the best. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good place for Mexican food.
Overall okay. I guess if you want to do Happy Hour is okay. However for the price the food was not that great. The margarita was good. If you want to do dinner with your family this is not the place. It is so noisy you cannot hear yourself think. Will not come back.
