Mexican
At El Camino, our guiding principle is to exceed our guest’s expectations in all areas – food, beverage, and ambiance – and create an experience that will arouse and excite our guest’s senses. As a team, we are inspired by the culture and the heritage of Mexico. To that end, we are passionate about bringing you an authentic experience not typically seen north of the border in chain restaurants.

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!

    Idk why they making their food portions smaller. Enchiladas looked like kids meal. The strawberry lemonade comes now in a way smaller glass and still $5. Taste and service was excellent but they have to do something about their portions. Wife always leave some of her carne asada and it was so small she finished it fast.

    When we arrived, at 4:10pm, the host said, ok, give us a couple minutes to set up your table…? I mean I made a reservation and then confirmed the reservation, sooo why wouldn’t the table be ready for us? We waited about 10-15 minutes. When the table was ready a guy walked us back. Assuming he was the manager, (as I saw him in expo and working the floor as well) never said “sorry for the wait” or anything for that, just walked us over to the table and like a ghost he was gone. Once we sat to say service was lacking may be an understatement. I could only get the servers attention when I waved her down like a lunatic. Overall there was nothing special about this place, the food was good and the place was nice but that’s about where it ends. The drinks I feel like were poured short as they were too sweet, I did order the Oaxaca old fashioned, which I understand it has sugar in the drink, but it was soo sweet it was thick. I wanted to switch it up, but the only time I could order was when she was walking behind my chair, so really all I could order was “may I get another drink” she nods and says “sure” with a smile at least. But honestly, I’d rather her be rude and attentive then nice and not have any of her attention. Now I know it’s annoying when you get birthdays, but I did put in my reservation that we were celebrating one, but there was no mention of it at all. Figured maybe a dessert with a candle or even just a “happy birthday” but instead I felt like the staff only wanted us to just sit eat, and leave. Which I suppose is fine, but… Isn’t going out to dinner supposed to be an experience? It should be somewhat memorable yes?

    If you are looking for a place with delicious Mexican food and a great ambiance, this is the place! We were a large group for my husbands birthday and everything was flawless. Our waitress was great! She did not seem overwhelmed even though she had multiple tables and our table being of 13 people. Drinks and food were delicious. You need to try the guacamole and the margaritas! Definitely recommend for a fun time with music, drinks, and food.

    We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The food was absolutely fabulous. Loved all the taco selections. The octopus starter was delicious. Very upbeat and lively place. Great server. The manager was very kind to us by honouring our reservation even though a few members of our party could not attend as they tested positive for Covid. So worth the visit. Will be looking for other locations to visit.

    We were a party of 10 for our daughters 23rd b’day. The food was good. I would recommend to the restaurant to change their refried bean recipe tho! It presents terribly. Our server was the best out of the 3 times we have been to El Camino. I appreciated the follow up call today to see how our experience was.

    Great happy hour options service needs some work. Called to ask questions about reservation process was met with lots of attitude and little help with my questions. Server rarely checked on us so we were always needing to flag her down for additional drinks or food. Overall good options were good
