This is my fourth visit in the past year. I've ordered a different meal each time, and all of them have been very tasty. While I like Mexican food, I do not like it too spicy, and all the items I've had have been fine...More

There aren't very many restaurants where our young children are willing to sit down and eat, but they love El Campesino. The food is great and they have the coldest beer in town. The prices are decent and the staff is very accommodating.

Stopped in for an early dinner a few nights ago. The food was great, as always, and our waiter took very good care of us. The margaritas were on point tonight! Thanks for another good experience! I'll be seeing you again soon!

Ate here several times and find the Camp to be inconsistent in service, however on this occasion WOW! Great service with our order arriving quite hot out of the kitchen. The Cadillac Margaritas are delicious too.

In town for a little sight seeing and was impressed by the outside appearance of the place. We weren't disappointed by the food, service or cleanliness. Excellent food, nice chips and salsa and fresh guacamole. It would appear the building is a former Pizzeria Uno...More
