Good food, service is a little slow.

Service is pretty slow. Food is good though. Authentic mexican food. Fish tacos are really good. Good selectiom of margaritas and adult beverages. Clean and good quiet atmosphere. Great place for a larger group, no waiting. Would recommend if you arem't in a hurry.

Nice place for lunch or dinner, large groups welcomed. Service is always great, food is always awesome. Authentic Mexican food not the Tex-Mex of some other chains.

We had 2 different waiters for some... More

The funny part, is that with so many we've been able to discern "good Mexican" from "cheap Mexican". El Camino's are "cheap" in every sense of the word. Their ingredients rarely seem fresh (including the shredded lettuce). But the worst... More

This place has the look of an authentic Mexican food restaurant but they water down their guacamole, have yucky salsa and use more grease than any place I've ever eaten in Mexcio and I love that country. Once was enough to keep me from returning to this restaurant.
