I've been to in Camino many times and even though the cuisine is far from gourmet, this place has certainly a charming New Mexico atmosphere that makes it rank high in the trip advisor chart. I've never been a big fan of the food, but...More

He ate the Reuben sandwich and I had taco salad. Reuben was short on sauerkraut. I asked for chicken and it was a bIt scarce. But everything tasted good, and service was good.
