Best Burritos in Town! 10/27/2010

For a Saturday night I was thinking we'd have to wait a long time for a table but as we walked in behind the hostess she immediately grabbed menus and sat us! Service was super quick which was good because we were in a hurry, and our server was awesome! We give a super thumbs up to the Chicken and Fish Burritos. HUGE! For $10 we totally had leftovers for later and were completely full when we left. more

Best Tex Mex in the Area 3/4/2009

Yesterday was my third visit. In general, service is fast, and so far, I've never had to wait for a table even though the place has been fairly crowded. The drink list is big, there's a good selection of beers, wines, tequilas and whiskeys ($4 shots!). A pitcher of Kenzinger is $12. Pros: great food, great service, great drink list more

Im from Texas....This Is BBQ 1/12/2009

Im new to philaldelphia. I moved here from Texas 4 months ago and am OF COURSE looking from a little bit of home. Sweet Lucys is great but not Texas Bbq. I saw some adds for El camino and decided to give it a try. WOW!! is my thoughts. Texas to the T if not better. Im not sure if they have a pit but the smoke was awesome, not to smokey and I love the fattier pieces of brisket. My service was sweet, the waitress was attentive and not too annoying.The Mac was creamy and cheesy, not what I expected at all and the jalapeno were a nice surprise. Meat wise....ribs, eat ribs ..all I'm gunna say. Pros: Cheap, good brunch, t.v.s, bbq sauce more

Terrible service, mediocre food, middling beer, and rather high prices 1/6/2009

For appetizers we ordered chicken wings and seitan wings. The chicken's dry rub was good, but the protein itself was cooked to a consistency that one might call ""slimy."" The seitan on the other hand was nicely flavored and crispy. We also had chips and salsa, which any Mexican restaurant should be able to do. It came with 2 salsas: smoked and verde. The verde was an abomination: ground up tomatillos...no salt, no spices. The ""smoked"" one was far from smoked- just chopped tomatoes, onions and a bit of cilantro and salt (essentially a basic pico de gallo found at a condiment bar). I ordered from the ""Texas"" menu with the wagyu beef brisket and ribs with spicy sauce. The sauce was good, and the meat was smoky,moist,and mostly acceptable. The brisket however was very fatty. My boyfriend ordered an $11 barbacoa burrito and upgraded to the plato for an extra $5. When one thinks of a $16 burrito meal you'd imagine a formidably sized mexican wrap with all the fixins. This alleged burrito turned out to be two finger-sized tortillas (slightly larger than a 7-11 taquito) with a tablespoon each of what tasted like dry shredded pemmican meat crammed into only one end of each little tube. There was nothing else in these odd little ""burritos""- quite literally, the only ingredient beside the meat was a flour tortilla. The rice and beans addition to this ""meal"" were mushy, unseasoned, and revolting in appearance, texture and flavor. Pros: mostly good smoked meat, decent atmosphere if you don't mind hipsters Cons: service, value, food selection, ""mexican"" menu more
