We wanted Mexican, and it was across the street from the Hampton Inn. Food was very good. We had the fajita combination. It was big enough to share. The waiter brought me the wrong beer but it was cold so I drank it. Restaurant was clean, staff was friendly, service was good.

I went here with a large group of friends. My husband and I had a late lunch so we got a few drinks each as well as the chips & dips. We enjoyed ourselves but the people we were with said the food was marginal and they would not return, for the price they were disappointed. I really liked the... More

Although the service was good, we were both disappointed in the food. We ordered guacamole for our chips and were served little more than an overly processed mashed avocado. My husband had the beef fajitas, which had almost no seasoning and lots of bell peppers. My chicken enchiladas had very little cheese and very very bland. Would not eat here... More

We stopped for some appetizer and drinks on a Saturday afternoon - loved the little outdoor area - also have indoor seating. Had chips with homemade avocado and 3 different types of salsa - loved chips and dips. Group had variety of their specialty drinks all very good and strong.

We ate here because of the proximity to our hotel (Comfort Inn). They had loud music playing so you could not hear the person across from you. The food was acceptable but disappointing. Service was just ok - few waiters and full house. Would not visit again. We had gone there previously (3-4 years ago) and had a good experience.... More

My husband and I ate here since it was close to our hotel, the Hampton Inn. I ordered a taco salad with chicken fajita meat. The tortilla shell was overly brown, the chicken was tender but somewhat tasteless, and it was very soupy with some lettuce, tomato, etc. on top. That was not my idea of a salad. My husband... More

El Camino is a typical Mexican Restaurant. The service and food are very good. Good Margaritas. A walk across the parking lot for the Hampton Inn

The hostess, Belem, was very welcoming. I requested a combination not on the menu, and they made it-enchiladas Suizas and enchiladas mole. It was good, but not authentic mexican mole. The margarita was tasty and not overpriced. Overall a pleasant dining experience, and a couple hundred yards from the hotel.

This was a strange place. Our food was very good and the prices were reasonable. However, service was not good and the atmosphere was not comfortable. One of the wait staff had an argument with another staff person, yelling and screaming, and threw a dishtowel. The "hostess" seated people while she was on her cell phone. I would not recommend...
