Description: At El Camino, our guiding principle is to exceed our guest’s expectations in all areas – food, beverage, and ambiance – and create an experience that will arouse and excite our guest’s senses. As a team, we are inspired by the culture and the heritage of Mexico. To that end, we are passionate about bringing you an authentic experience not typically seen north of the border in chain restaurants. We are committed to offering the freshest organic and local ingredients where possible, and we value local, artisan, indigenous and reclaimed offerings. We are even taking the not so typical step of making our own tortillas, sauces, and anything else possible from scratch. The list of craft cocktails is truly Mexican and includes house made sangritas, a curated selection of agave spirits, a diverse selection of craft and Mexican beers. In the end, it is all about sharing the food with the community of people who enjoy it. Viva México!

El Camino serves up the best Mexican food in Fort Lauderdale. We have gone twice now and can't wait to go back. There is always a crowd and a line, so we have been lucky to be available to go at times in the afternoon between the lunch and dinner crowds, but it is worth the wait no matter what time you arrive. Not only is the food great, but the service is good too... and you don't often get good service at restaurants on Las Olas Blvd, so that is something that truly stands out. The fish tacos were outstanding, the portions just right, and don't pass on the tres leches cake! Wonderful

Best mexican food in Fort Lauderdale!!! Went today at 7 pm... even tho the restaurant was fully packed we had an amazing experience!!! Food was delicious... You NEED to order the Brisket Nachos... they were mouthwatering!!! A had the Passion fruit Margarita... DIVINE!!! The Tres Leches desserts... just delicious (must have)... Roger, our server was adorable, full of personality, attentive and knowledgeable... he definitely is a huge asset to the restaurant. All the managers came to the table to greet us and welcome us.

Atmosphere, Taste and service was just AMAZING!!! This is now my favorite restaurant in Las Olas! See you soon!

Love this place!!! Nachos are amazing- more than enough for four people. Blood orange margarita is sublime- and great choices for taco combos. Terrific surroundings with views out to Las Olas. Can’t wait to take friends who come to Ft. Ld. to visit.

Other restaurant owners should come here to learn how to run an amazing restaurant! We are here during boat show and the place is packed AND our food was amazing
AND the service was incredible. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat - the interior is fun and hip. Definitely check this out - even if they look really busy!
