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!

Fantastic service. Was a little loud, but great atmosphere overall. Happy hour prices were very reasonable. Food was delicious, just wish they had more kid friendly options.

I always enjoy the food at Phat Boy. Ordered crispy bok choy and edamame as appetizers, along with some salmon sashimi. Tried a few new (to me) rolls out. Both fresh. Ordered a few pieces of unagi and it was strangely cold. Our service was a little lacking. Well we took some time ordering our main dishes, we were rarely checked on to see if we needed our drinks refreshed or if we needed anything after we did get our rolls. We tried to order it another drink, but by the time the waiter came back it was too late and we weren’t aware when the last call for drinks was. With that being said, the server was nice when we did see him. I guess, I can say that he was less than attentive.

Overall, it was a good experience while celebrating two birthdays with my family. The food is pretty good. The service was OK, but could have been better. Our waitress was dealing with multiple tables so our table was left looking for a server at times. Being more attentiveness would have been nice though the gentleman who was bussing the tables checked in more than our waitress. Food was good so I know I will be back as the macaroni cheese bites were a hit at our table.

We frequent this restaurant on a regular basis. Often two times per week. We return because the food and service are outstanding. The manager owner Jerry is the consummate host. Our servers are always outstanding and very knowledgeable about the menu. The specials dishes are always interesting. Highly recommended.

Amazing food! We ordered the Jerk Chicken with festivals and the Lamp chops with mashed potatoes. Every bite was so tender and seasoned! Absolutely amazing! I will definitely be back.

Lobster sushi was served in a tricky way. When you turn over the lobster, it was only a shell, no lobster in it. They said it’s only for decoration. Very tricky. Very disappointing.

As always, Pubbelly was outstanding. The food, service and atmosphere are always great. So glad they’re in Pembroke Pines now and we don’t have to drive to Aventura.

We had reservations for 8 people at 6:15 pm and it took about 90 minutes to be seated. A little leeway for being Mothers Day, but table management was very poor. We had several elderly family members and the long wait was very difficult for them. If the restaurant cannot keep reservations to within 15 minutes they should take reservations at all. Food was good and brought out in a reasonable time. Our server was great given the very busy restaurant. Bar service was very slow though.
