I really can't say enough about Camino, it's amazing! My husband and I lived in the area for about 2 years and Camino was by far our favorite place to go! The service was wonderful, everyone was friendly, and the food was delicious! When we moved there was no doubt in our mind where our last meal was going to... More

The house margarita was tasty and the service was speedy, but the food was very good. I ordered carnitas fajitas and it was so huge! It would've fed all three of us! The pork was perfectly cooked and juicy. There were definitely leftovers. We'll be dining here again, but next time probably share a meal.

This place surprised me. I usually find those most mexican restaurants have tacos with very little flavor. Their tacos are nicely seasoned. Everything seems a bit on the spicy side, but I like it like that. The food was just delicious and the restaurant is very nice inside.

This is just over the swing bridge in Surf City. In October, many restaurants have only lunch hours or close altogether. Not this place! That's what lead us here. It was pouring rain. We had just had fruit for lunch and were famished. The two places on the island we wanted to go for dinner were closed, even though their... More

Very nice restaurant and staff. Ordered two chicken fajitas a Pepsi and margarita. Nice portions of food. Only downside was the fajitas. Really bland.

The chips and salsa were great, very homemade. Try the chunky guacamole for $2.99 too, that's a steal! The Flour tortillas though almost tasted store bought and may have been. Service was just OK. There is so much to try we will be back.

Last year we went to Camino Real & I would have highly recommended the place...this year, not so much! The food wasn't as good---my parents shared the "Fajitas for Two" and for some reason, they both got sick. The service SUCKED---NO ONE checked on us during our meal to see how it was/if we needed anything/how we were on our... More
