I usually judge a Mexican restaurant by the quality of their chips and salsa, first. My preference is thin, crisp tortilla chips with freshly made salsa from fresh ingredients. This was disappointing as they served thicker chips that were slightly bendable as one bit into them. I ordered a chicken taco, a beef taco, and a pork enchilada. The chicken... More

Recommended by a local and disappointing.. I ordered the tostada special it was definitely not special.. The seasoned meat tasted very familiar, similar to the taco meat I make using taco seasoning I get at Costco.. It seemed this restaurant used their tostada special to get rid of their old tortilla's which were old, stale and hard.

I haven't had good Mexican food since we moved to Florida from California 13 years ago. It was the first meal I wanted once we got our car rental. One of my friends said for us to go there that it was supposed to be great. I remember El Camino from when I was a little girl when we lived... More

Mexican cuisine; average to fair. They remodeled and added a sit-down bar, and raised their prices by quite a bit to pay for that.

The food is good, with large servings. Service is unusually fast, unless you pick the wrong time. Somewhat noisy and busy, not the place for a quiet dinner. Parking can be a problem at times. The restaurant is changing ownership as we speak. Let's hope things don't go down hill.

El Camino Mexican Restaurant is located on Brentwood Blvd in Brentwood Ca, not in Oakley. It is a family owned restaurant that's been in this same location for over 40 years. Good food, very large portions, medium prices. They just remodeled and have added a very nice full service bar. Worth a try

Located along busy Brentwood Blved (former HWY 4) in a semi-industrail area El Camino makes decent/good food at a low price. If the place was in a better area and had better chips n salsa it would be very good.

We eat here often. My husband loves their enchiladas and pasole (?) soup; I love their beef tacos, my daughter enjoys their burritos and my son, who doesn't like Mexican food, still enjoys their chips. Unless you happen to be there at an unusually busy time, their service is very fast - - sometimes under 5 minutes. Their prices are... More
