Very good food

Food was very good. Had the pollo molecajete and it was enough for two really. Salsa was bland but everything selle tasted fresh. Service was good. Don't use the restroom or you might lose your appetite. Atmosphere was not that great.

Right across the street from the Hampton Inn, so convenience was a big plus. The food was average Mexican and service was the same. Price was middle of the road, too. Nice place to eat if you're staying nearby and don't want to drive, but I probably wouldn't go there otherwise.

My family of four decided to eat here while vacationing in Bardstown. It looked a bit worn on the outside, but once inside, the service was very friendly, taking us immediately to a table. The food was fantastic, and served a very short time after ordering. Everybody devoured their food! The waiter was very pleasant, visiting the table when appropriate.... More

The food was average. I asked for a substitution on my meal and that was done without any problem. The service and timeliness of my meal being served was excellent. Also the bar service was great. However, the food was just average.

Since we were at the Hampton Inn - we asked the staff where to eat close by. We chose El Camino and were definitely surprised. Friendly, family atmosphere. More than generous portions of well prepared dishes, very reasonably priced and they make an awesome hot sauce!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn next door. The food was quick, delicious, and they had a family friendly atmosphere.

Go here about once a month. Food is delivered hot and tasty. Salsa is weak and thin but hot. Mixed Fahitas very good but steak could be more tender. Some servers English needs work.

Food okay, nothing special simply a run of the mill Mexican food, margarita was nothing more than a sweet pre-mixed drink, the music in the bar area was to loud and our server was horrible. Also did not care at all for the bald headed and bearded Muslim looking on the manager(?). He pulled up a chair to a booth... More
