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!
The restaurant is great! Food is delicious! But, it's extremely loud. Next time, I'll make sure I only eat outside.
We had an 8:45pm reservation and we were not seated until 9:30. They told us they had a table ready and we’re just waiting for the people to leave, meanwhile those same people sat at that table until 10:30. We had to point out to the hostess that if that table was not ready they’ll need to put another table together for us. For waiting about an hour the only item we received was guacamole.
Amazing food and the best hand crafted margaritas in town.
We went there for my friends birthday. The restaurant was busy but atmosphere was great! Love the decor, service, and the energy and especially love their taco Tuesday deal! My only complaint the flavors were lacking. I had the pork belly, steak, & carnitas tacos, three very different meats but they all tasted the same (plain) the kitchen can work on amplifying the flavors. Also some of the fun flavored craft margaritas our table ordered could’ve been better especially for the price.
Great drinks, great service and food pretty good as well!
We had a great time!
Food was great.
Service was very good.
Drinks had plenty of booze in them.
Our 4 year old did not have fun or like the food though.
The food and service are amazing!!
Great drink menu and good food, but it was LOUD. I had dinner with two friends and felt like we were yelling at each other the whole time.
Neat place but the food was mediocre.
It was the first time for my boyfriend and I. I called a asked for a special seating with an outside view. I was 10 minutes to late and when we arrived they gave our table away. I understand how business works, but I did not feel that they paid attention to my notes AT ALL. For a first time you want a guest to repeat and come back. I do not feel like I want to come back, specially not after being just 10 minutes late and getting a normal table that so very small. Also I got a middle seating which I ask not to have. It was a special occasion.
Could not get the order right
Our table wasn’t ready until 45 minutes after our reservation (which was already on the late side at 8:45), so by the time we sat we were v hungry. The bar was too crowded to approach for a drink, so we had to wait by the host stand, outside, in the hot/humid south Florida weather. The food was decent enough and reasonably priced, but had we known the delay would be so long, we would have gone elsewhere. The spicy cucumber cocktail was excellent. Prob won’t try for a table again after that experience though. Sad!
Food and service were great. It was just super loud and hard to hold a conversation
Awesome food and service. Not too expensive but like most places once you start ordering drinks the bill gets large quickly. Waitress was very nice and the manager stopped by to make sure everything was good which I’m always thankful for.
One of my big turn offs for a restaurant is still being hungry after my meal- this was NOT the case here, even got a to-go box for my girlfriend for her food
Great food and service. Quick to be seated. Fun atmosphere
El Camino is our go to place whenever we are down in Delray or Fort Lauderdale. The selection of Tequillas, Mezcals and Margaritas are 👌🏼. Service and atmosphere is always on point. Keep up the great work El Camino!
Great experience, ambiance and food. Will return again!
The food and service are wonderful but the noise level is unbearable, they need something to absorb the sound and fast. The doors were left opened so it was REALLY hot and humid, I noticed guests at other tables who were sweating, we went in the evening. It is Sept in Florida, the AC needs to be on for a comfortable experience. Pretty restaurant, if they can get the AC on and the noise level down, they will be alright.
Great drinks and food
Excellent food, awesome server and the manager was amazing. All good!!!
Would like happy hour prices extended to sit down tables in dinning are
Atmosphere was good, sevice and food outstanding, our waiter was attentive and informative, dessert then flan and tres leches were delicious. Im not big on tequilas but they had a large beer selection.
Very good service, loved the food. I will eat there again.
It was the first time for me with five of my friends, made a reservation got seated right away. Diego whom I believe is the manager, explained the menu to me was very helpful and friendly. Our server was extremely friendly I forgot her name, she got a little bit weeded and didn’t come back to the table enough in the end she got some help. Overall the Avocado drink was amazing, the tacos were awesome and the fact you could get a variety was great. Omg & the nachos are HUGE and very good.
Will definitely go back
Only downfall, you pay for chips/salsa
Always enjoy dining here! Love sitting outside and the service is excellent. Great drinks and what a deal if you go on Taco Tuesday.
Lots of great food. Service was also great. I will
Fun atmosphere, high energy! Good food and drinks at an excellent value!
Very loud on Saturday night. Food was fabulous. A lot of people complain about the restaurant that they do not give chips and salsa. Better off to reduce portion sizes and include chips and salsa
food was on the spicy side but the staff did not mention anything.
Staff seemed to be inattentive and unaware
Excellent food. Waiter was very accommodating and offered to make a few substitutions. My only complaint is that everyone's food didn't come out at the same tine. I also had to remind him about my Mexican corn.
Worst experience EVER....waited over 1 hour for our food, arrived at 8:45...finally food came out sporadically at 10:15 & beyond......the food quality was tasteless and not authenitc. By that time we had lost our appetite and wanted to actually leave after being filled by chips. The management did in fact comp drinks and provided dessert, that was a nice gesture, however, the total meal should have been comped.....The atmosphere is very cool, that is the only positive thing that I can report. We know what good Mexican food is...this was over priced for the quantity and quality. I cannot recommend eating here. Perhaps drinks would be more appropriate, but not a full meal. This was our last meal on vacation with family and was such a disappointment all around.
Our dinner and drinks were fantastic. Look forward to coming back to introduce our friends to the restaurant as well. Excellent service! Thank you.
Some of the tacos we ordered were very spicy and the menu does not indicate this. Some people would prefer to stay away from spicy food if they are aware. Guacamole was very bland and a very small portion when compared to Rocco’s Tacos. Good place for drinks, but may not return for food
Been meaning to try El Camino since it opened. Glad we got to go before the snowbirds get back and there won't be any reservations available! The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We definitely plan on returning. Recommending it to all of our friends.
Felt very rushed the server was pushing for our order as soon as we set down. This allowed no time to review menu and the server did not offer any suggestions or features. We were there for a relaxing dinner but felt they were just trying to open tables.
We absolutely loved everything about our dinner here. The service was top-notch, the food was fantastic, the mezcal cocktails were balanced and very original, all in all the best dining experience we're had in the area. I highly recommend this spot!
Always great energy - The best margaritas in town!
The acoustics were terrible so it was uncomfortably noisy. We could barely hear the woman serving us - she was great by the way.
Came here for a girls lunch. Drinks were good but glass to small for a margarita! Service was great. Chips fresh, salsa not my style. Ordered shrimp tacos, expected medium size shrimp, not the tiny shrimp pieces, was disappointed. Taste was good. My friends avacado salad was the best dish on the table. Presentation was wonderful, avacado was perfect! Atmosphere was really unique. I’d come back here for a drink. I’ll try another dish. The burritos looked really good.
