    Delicious food - the pork belly taco special was an explosion of flavors, the Mexican street corn and fish tacos outstanding. Loved the desserts- we had tres leches cake, the “Frida Kahlo” and some sorbets. All with a bit of a kick and not too sweet. Service was friendly but a bit chaotic.

    Delicious mojito,well balanced. Unique chips and salsa- ate the 3 salsas trying to decide which one I liked better- results: no decision, liked them all. Delish fish tacos.

    Started with a perfect Mojitoa sampling of beers and guacamole. Followed those with an array of tacos (fish, steak and chicken), Shrimp Ceviche and Curly Fries. Tempted by Chef's Tres Leches (it's the best I've ever had - always). Main complaint was that food actually came too fast. Apps weren't finished or cleared before entree items showed up - not what I expect in a Camacho establishment. Also felt as if the were either not welcoming (host station) or over familiar (waiter)... unexpected , given the ownership.

    It was great food and our server was exceptional. However not the best time for a family dinner. Very loud bar that you can’t avoid since it’s in the center of the small restaurant. Would rather come on a weekday nor a Friday.

    We love Camacho for a lite Mexican dinner. The spicy margarita is the bomb. The street corn is awesome and all the tacos we have had were delish! The atmosphere is a very cool vibe!! A really great addition to Westville.

    Great for families with kids—patio was spacious enough for stroller and since it was already quite noisy baby and kid noises weren’t disruptive. Food was great and they have a kids’ menu that my 6 & 8 year old enjoyed.

    Food prices increased, portion sizes are soooo much smaller. The Mexican hot dogs used to be 2 hot dogs for $9, now it’s ONE hot dog for the same amount of $9. Tacos no longer come in 3, they’re 2 tacos and of course… still the same price. Was totally not worth my 50 minute drive. I use to go to Camacho regularly, but this is the last time I’ll be eating there unfortunately.

    Food was great - fresh, tasty, good portions. Service could’ve been better. Friendly - but had to wait for drinks, long time between app and entree, coffee came out after we finished dessert - small things that add up. Still enjoyed our meal immensely but there’s room for improvement.

    Me and my wife went CAMACHOS GARAGE and was blown away by the interior which looked bigger on the inside vs looking at it from the outside in any case we went through the interior split of the restaurant and this side is half outside and half inside,( You just have be there) We were seated right at the seam which gave us a nice broad view of the restaurant which I did request on my reservation and they came through Thank you for that.. My wife ordered plantains with a cream sauce with Pork tacos with Pico de gallo and fresh cut radish which she loved 😍 and I ordered grilled chicken Gringo tacos with funnel fries with Pico de gallo and Creamy aioli sauce , Delicious!!! We also had Pineapple Crème bruleé for desert (which they should sell only to me) which went great with our Mojitos made with Coconut cruzan rum that topped us off lovely... We spent our 3rd Wedding Anniversary there and it was wonderful and totally recommend eating at this fine dining establishment and l ask to keep up the great work, food and service+Drinks and I'm lifetime devoted to CAMACHOS GARAGE!!!

    Two words: SALTY and NOISY Service was good as was the food, so all that salt really isn't necessary. Guac was delicious, but ridiculously overpriced - $17 for about 1/2 cup.

    Birthday for our grandson ! Food was very authentic Mexican and full of flavor! Mine was too spicy for my taste but shame on me for not inquiring about spice levels first! My wife and I both had a margarita and it was somewhat small for $14 but delicious nonetheless. Dessert came at the end obviously and it was a crème brûlée Mexican style and it was outrageously good. Most importantly our service was excellent and I only wish I could remember the name of the server because she really was quite good. She made recommendations as she went along and really felt like she was interested in what we were going to order. Music was loud but we kind of expected that before hand. Nice lively music was playing throughout the evening and the place was crowded especially for Wednesday night. Parking was convenient right near the restaurant which was very helpful as well. Overall we had a very nice visit and we would certainly recommend this to anyone and we plan to return again. Difficult to hear Conversations right at our table because the background noise was so loud but quite honestly it did not interfere very much with the results of the evening.

    The food was good but not well described on the menu. They upcharge on drinks without ice so a medium sized margarita served straight up was $17. This was not mentioned until the bill came. So overall, everything was okay, but not a place I would rush back to.
