As locals, we get to Las Cambritas a couple of times per month. They've got excellent Mex food and some non-traditional choices that are worth trying, maybe even better than the tacos and burritos (e.g. Jambalaya or chopped salad). Service is always friendly although occasionally slow (it's... read more

Well, I usually try to find the good in places when I review. Las Cambritas has excellent, friendly service and the portions are large. Here's the rub - the food was pretty much bland and tasteless. I love good Mexican food. I don't care if it's the style found in Texas or California. Hot or mild, most Mexican food has... More

Had lunch on the patio with my daughter. My favorite live local band, The Jammies, were playing. Had a great Bloody Mary, followed by an incredible Shrimp Cocktail. Service was friendly and fast. The experience was unforgettable.

The other half had a seafood dish which she thought was top notch . The drink selection was good and we were recommended by locals to try the Millionaire... More

We had lunch on a very busy Saturday. The wait staff was excellent, even though the place was jammed. Great food and nice atmosphere. Outdoor seating in the back, if you like, too!

BUT we're we shocked the food was amazing, tasty, fresh and the portions were spot on for two good eaters!! Please don't let first impressions put you off... More

I came into Las Cambritas today for enchiladas and a beer. I've eaten here many times over the last 10 years. I lived up at Ragged Point for many years and would stop here on the way to or from, especially for this favorite of mine. Today was, as always, a delicious, filling meal. Local entertainment out onthe patio, friendly... More

Had a late night dinner of chiles rellenos and elotes (roasted corn on the cob with mayonnaise, chili powder, and lime). The service was good and the corn was to die for. I had a very enjoyable meal.
