Big surprise

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

Recently visited while on business in the area. Service was good, food was ok, nothing special that would make me want to return? Maybe it was just what I ordered? Chicken and Mexican sausage. Just not much flavor.

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
