Pleasant experience dining at El Camino. Food is tasty & the Jalapeño Cucumber Margarita was absolutely delicious.

Very average and bland food. Margaritas barely have any alcohol in them

This was our first time visiting El Camino Mexican Kitchen. The greeting at the door was friendly and we were seated promptly, about 15 minutes ahead of our reservation. We requested a booth and were guided to a very sizable and comfortable booth. The ambience was great. We felt distant enough from the other diners to be safe but not so far that we felt like we were dining alone. Our waiter Christian was attentive and friendly. We got drinks promptly and food came out in a timely fashion, all of which were excellent. We will definitely return.

El Camino was very clean, very nice atmosphere, excellent service and yummy food. My husband loved his shrimp tacos and I really enjoyed the Shrimp and rice dinner. We both enjoyed our margaritas. We would definitely recommend.

I thought I found a gem. This was my 3rd time here in a matter of days. Last 2 times I had 5 star experiences. This was 1 star. The server was terrible. The service was terrible. The food was not good like before. We ordered drinks and then the server came back much later for our appetizer order. We received our appetizers for about 15 mins and we had to get up to ask for our drinks because we were thirsty. We also had some strange thing in the appetizer that I sent back for analysis and they claimed a piece of corn leaf accidentally got in our food. We wanted refills on our beverages and just gave up! We had entrees and just wanted to get out, but we kept having to get up to go to the kitchen final prep area for assistance on everything we needed. Overall, they were more concerned with the to go orders than us in the restaurant! I’m not saying I’ll never go back, but I was extremely disappointed.

Queso was excellent. Tyler wars very attentive and informed us of a slight delay with our main course which was no problem at all. Cheesy rice was excellent. The only comment is some dishes come with rice and the ability to substitute cheesy rice even with an upcharge would be great..!

This will be one of my “go to” restaurants. Food was good; we ordered: guacamole, nachos, fish tacos, burrito, margarita, and beer. I would recommend anything as it seems they have the food and margarita part perfected. Beer was flat and we’ve been to Mexico many times and had that beer. Issue was quickly rectified. Staff seemed friendly.

This was my first time at El Camino. The food was very good. The only downside was that we were not able to get the happy hour deals because we didn’t sit at the bar. My friend and I both ordered margaritas and were told we would not get the happy hour discount because we were sitting at a booth. If I had known this beforehand I would have requested bar seats. Didn’t really make sense to me that you can’t get the discount no matter where you sit, especially with COVID and places wanting you to separate and not all congregate at the bar.

The ambience and overall feel of the restaurant is very nice. We love their margaritas and other adult beverages. Unfortunately the food is not up to par. I ordered a chimichanga and only ate two bites because the inside of the chimichanga was so loaded down with sauce and grease. My husband's fajitas were just okay with nothing special to mention. Its unfortunate because its such a nice place otherwise.

This is only place we go given the pandemic. The service is consistently terrific — you can see the servers smiling even with their masks on. We love the filet fajitas and the cornbread. Highly recommend.
