We eat here frequently and you can't beat the quality, freshness and flavor for authentic Mexican food in the area.

Visited there on the third night of our visit to Galena. Ordered Chile Relleno's which are my favorite. We have a local restaurant near home which I use to rate all others on this dish. The chile's here were equally good to my home restaurant. This is the first place I have visited which I would give that rating. Highly... More

Everyone loves eating outside on the deck and the music is great fun. Inside is special as well. Mexican food one notch above your typical Mexican foods.

We have been to Campeche several times and have been very satisfied customers. Food is first rate, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a wonderful outdoor dining area.

We had a nice quiet Saturday evening sitting outside. The food was very good; I had the 7 seas soup and could not finish it. It was full of yummy goodness. Margaritas were nothing special. The waitstaff and the nice man playing music outside made it very enjoyable. One of our party even got up and sang a song. Nice... More

Lunch at El Campeche with several friends today was much better than you might expect in this little town. Chilaquiles, flautas, enchiladas and chiles rellenos were all considered excellent. Bloody Mary's were made with a Mexican Worcester sauce that also includes soy sauce, for a slightly different flavor, and we asked for more hot sauce to spice them up a... More

We capped our night on the patio of the Campeche restaurant to enjoy dessert, drinks, and live music. The location is just off Main St., so the patio felt a little more private. We enjoyed the live music and the musician even walked around to take requests. The dessert was splendid and the drinks were great as well.

We were looking for a light lunch and a refreshing margarita to end a very hot day of sight seeing. I ordered a fish taco and my mom ordered a steak taco. No complaints. And my mom really enjoyed the salsa down to the very last drop (I am not exaggerating). However, the margarita was a tad disappointing especially for... More

The staff was great! The queso fundido was authentic Mexican cuisine with floor tortillas and chorizo. The food overall was tasty and the live music was nice. The atmosphere was cool and comfortable.
