When we arrived our table wasn't ready even though we had a reservation so we headed to the bar. We started off with the large margaritas which was likely the best value of the night at $20, but questionable how much tequila was actually in them. We then both munched on chips and salsa (which took over 15 minutes to arrive) and ordered enchiladas as a main. We were STARVING at the end of it. They came as two tiny corn tortillas and $16 a piece. I'm fine if you want to bring smaller entrees, but these weren't in the small plate section so I just wasn't expecting it. My boyfriend and I left date night and headed over to La Palapa for a real dinner. Suggest you do the same.

It was good food but the drinks were extremely expensive and too sweet. If you want great margaritas then it is definitely not the place but the food was good and well priced.

The food is always great but the service always disappoints. From not properly greeting the table, never checking in after meal arrives and prematurely dropping the check without being asked for it, all service points are never met.

Pretty plain looking and small, I wasn't expecting much when we walked in. Tables are small and spaced tightly.

Chips and guacamole and especially their salsa were excellent, as well as our appetizers and entries. Wasn't expecting the food to be that good.

Reserved at table for a party of 6 on a Saturday, unfortunately two people in our party were running very late. The bar was packed so there was no place to wait comfortably, which was exacerbated by pouring rain outside.

The waitstaff was incredibly nice and worked to seat the four of us, even though the rest of the party had not arrived. In my experience, many other restaurants would have simply given our table away and we would have waited in the rain, looking like wet puppies. The waitstaff really saved the night and we all happily drank margaritas. The food was excellent, I'd stick w/the traditional margs, instead of the flavored though.

Terrible food, not authentic at all. No music playing, people are screaming and tables are too close to one another.
Cocktails were delicious though.

Food was pretty good! Can't say it was the best Mexican I have ever had by any means, but the margaritas were good. A little crowded inside, but overall made for a fun dinner with friends.

Went one lunchtime so it was relatively quiet. The waitress, who also ran the bar, was really friendly and efficient and gave good advice - stopping us from over ordering food! Enjoyed everything.

The best burrito I've ever had. The margaritas were top notch too.

I have been coming to El Camion almost since its opening. The restaurant has never disappointed me. My husband and I now use it exclusively when we have friends in from out of town. The fist dishes are always fresh and excellently prepared, their mole sauce is the best I have ever had and if you are looking for lighter fare the black bean salad is a good choice.
