About the restaurant
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!

The food and service was excellent. It was a bit noisy and hard to talk to our group. The table was small so that was tricky. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and would visit again!

Unique and fantastic cocktails at the bar. Very nice ambiance and comfortable tables, chairs, and barstools. Lamb skewers were very tasty and gamey. Sliders were fine. The wine list is excellent. I wish the server knew more about the wines, how to open a bottle, and how to pour a bottle. Ossbuco and risotto were flavorful but came to the table lukewarm which detracted from the experience. Dessert was explained to us, no one came back to take our order, and then the check was dropped without being prompted. Overall great, and I would return to sit at the bar for appetizers, but would not dine-in.

Great service and very friendly staff - the restaurant a little noisy due to the acoustics and could have been just a little less dark. Outside seating along the side of the restaurant looks like the place to be.
