We stopped there last Saturday. I just read few reviews, and I'm not sure where the excellent reviews come from. Food is not good and definitely overpriced. Patio looks inviting but it's overrun by bees, making it almost impossible to enjoy the meal. We looked at people chasing them away from drinks and plates. After looking at it while waiting... More

First time here on this Saturday and it was fantastic! Prices typically run $15 a combo plate but so worth it. The atmosphere is like any Mexican restaurant but very warm and inviting. The staff was friendly and provided any help needed. The service was great and we received our food super fast.

Good food. Friendly and quick service. Fajitas were great. Good large margarita. Enjoyed dinner outside. Quiet street and garden wall so did not feel we were dining on the sidewalk.

The meals are overpriced, but there is a reasonably priced a la carte section at the end of the menu. I had the fajita taco, and it was fantastic!

We wanted something different for dinner. We didn't want to spend tons either. Campeche fit our needs. Adequate portions and wonderful service. The food was your typical faire for Mexican food. The salsa was very fresh and homemade. Lovely dining on the outside terrace.

I've eaten at Campeche in Galena several times and love it. They have a nice outdoor patio or you can eat inside. Delicious food and the margarita was perfect. They are on the far side of the business district so you don't necessarily see it when you are walking around, but it's definitely worth a stop.

Restaurant was very busy but sat the 4 of us and served our drinks quickly. We ordered appetizers to share as we felt food selections rather expensive. Service was very good and food delivered quickly.

This was a great Mexican restaurant, complete with live music inside. We ditched the outside idea, because of the bees, which the hostess generously advised us against. My husband and I split a Campeche Supreme Burrito, and since it comes with rice and beans, it was plenty for the two of us. We also had a side of guacamole, but... More
