My wife and I had our first date here over 13 years ago. We had both been customers prior to that. It’s one thing f Seattle’s gems. Food, drinks, service and ambiance are all excellent.
Not close to Mexican food, example queso fundido more like bad Chile con queso …
El Camino is a great venue for safe, outdoor dining. Everything was perfect, except for the fact that the heater kept dying and we got cold. During my prior visit to El Camino, there was a nice, big heater which never stopped working and I was hoping for the same things this time, but smaller heaters were being used, under the table. These do not work as well as the larger ones used previously.
Was a wee bit disappointed that refried beans and rice were cold upon serving. Next time I will ask server to please warm them up.
Upon entering, we were asked to show our vaccination cards. We had a table by the window inside and we’re promptly met by our server (and her mentor as she was training). Our margaritas were fresh. We had chicken quesadillas (filled with a lot of meat), spicy shrimp that brought the heat and flavor, posole that was perfect for a cool and rainy evening and carnitas tacos (marinated and cooked to perfection!). The pumpkin flan tasted like pumpkin pie minus the crust and topped with yummy pepitas. The staff was very friendly, attentive and made some great suggestions. We can’t wait to come back to try the other menu items.
Good food and great environment for a fun dinner.
Very courteous server, great food. Lovely experience overall
Consistently great food & service. Cozy, vibrant ambiance. Been loving El Camino since the early 2000’s!!!
Consistently good Mexican food
Great vibe, super fun theme. Loved the enclosed patio area.
Our server was super sweet. I visited two weekends in a row because the chilaquiles were so yummy! I brought my family this last week. Great Bloody Mary as well. Everyone was happy. Thank you!
Thank you for a lovely evening. Your decorations are perfect! Staff really was working hard! Totally accommodating to our table of 10. Great margaritas and good. Thanks
The server we had was excellent, no complaints there. The food was okay - way over priced for the quality. I wasn’t expecting authentic Mexican food but it kinda sucked. Wouldn’t recommend.
The food was uninspiring and below the quality I usually find in Seattle. Fish tacos had a disagreeable 'fishy' smell and the rice&beans were luke warm and seemed more like mall-mexican. Overall it was not a good meal and I have no interest to return.
Love the food and great service
Great service, delicious food!
Loved the outdoor seating that’s dog friendly. Got the chilaquilles at brunch. Liked the spice.
Outdoor seating under the tent out front was very cozy, private, and warm. Delicious mole enchiladas. Tres leches cake was amazing. Will definitely go back!
Awesome food and service.
Great service and food. Great to get a reservation.
Delicious! The ambience was truly fantastic and the service was prompt. Very smooth reservation process and friendly staff. Will ABSOLUTELY be going back.
Amazing back deck! Festive decor, great food with some unique specials celebrating their 25th anniversary. Our server was fantastic and made the night very special. Highly recommend!
Food was fabulous and service was wonderful. Will definitely be back!
Nice rear patio
Yummy brunch, fun spot with great food!
The food is always great and service was great! Just glad that a iconic place like El Camino has been able to adapt as well as possible during the pandemic.
Server lost my credit card.
I’m still waiting for someone to call me.
I used to bring friends to eat here. And always had great food.
But I guess prices had to go up. $18.50 for the chili relent seemed high.
Please call me about my Visa credit card.
Kaiti was absolutely fabulous! Very attentive and great communication.
We sat outside on the patio. It was dark, no lighting at the table we couldn’t see what we were eating. The server was rude and slow. Drinks took 45 minutes to get out. Food came out lukewarm. Not 1 person out of 8 was happy with their drink or food.
Amazing server Amy made my birthday amazing!
Very cute restaurant slow service however friendly.
I let our waiter know about a bell pepper allergy, he assured what I was ordering did not have that. When it arrived it was covered in a red sauce, He could not confirm it did not help peppers. He had it remade. By the time I got my food the rest the table had finished. Without the sauce was actually of quite a terrible meal for $20. Would not go back.
We came with a group of 7 for dinner, had reservations and were seated right away. The service was excellent no wait time at all. Great food, great service, great atmosphere !
Shoutout to the staff who took great care of us. Our waitress was also bartending and multi-tasked beautifully. Thanks for the hard workX great service and food!
2 tacos for $16 is poor value. But tacos are good.
Delicious food & wonderful patio. The queso was bomb!
Love this place so so much! We brought friends from San Diego and they said we need to take them there once they visit again! Thanks for an amazing night!
Food wasn’t good. I’d probably say that instead of eating poorly reheated average Mexican food - I would have rather found a taco bell and eaten that. Much better experience
Great restaurant still after all these years!
Terrific food and warm service.
