The food is marginal and over priced and the service is very poor/slow. If you are going with a group of people, be sure to arrive all at the same time because you can't reserve a table until everyone in your party is there, and keep in mind that they do not bring separate checks; be prepared to divide out the bill on a napkin and hand it along with multiple cards to the server in order to pay. It seems that the staff does things to make it easy for them...they don't cater to the customer. We will not be going back. If you are looking for Mexican food in Brunswick go to Pedro's on Maine Street.

Food was OK, but nothing stood out. You have to pay for chips (that you can buy at Walmart or Hannafords). Waitress was too lazy to write separate checks for everyone, but doesnt mind calculating a tip based on your entire party (went with 8 people). Wont sit you until your entire party is there. This is likely a scam to get you to buy drinks at the bar.

I originally went to El Camino when they first opened years ago. A group of us had heard about how focused they were on locally-sourced food, how hip they were, how great the food was, blah blah blah. We had an awful experience from the moment we sat down, until the moment we left. The atmosphere seemed dark and gloomy. The food was . . . for lack of a better word, "damp": it felt heavy and totally unimpressive. And while we were all of-age, our waitress (who wasn't much older than us) made us feel unwelcomed; like she was personally offended and disgusted that we were drinking alcohol. Finally - the price. Everything was FAR more expensive than it needed to be. I'm all about local and organic, but not when restaurants use that as a guise to charge more. Maybe they were having an off night when we went, but it was off enough that I've never come back here nor have I ever wanted to come back here again. And when people ask me about this restaurant, I tend to encourage them to check out other eating establishments in the area so that they too can avoid the pretentious, memorably bad experience.

Great Food! You may have to wait for a table on the weekends, but that's because it's outstanding fresh, home made, locally sourced food. It is a little pricey, but at this level it's worth it- embrace it! So glad El Camino is in the neighborhood! The food is not hot or overly spicy but it is not bland. You can add hot sauce if you want ,but the flavors are wonderful and subtle the way it's served.

This place is awesome, get an El Camino Limeade, Guacamole and chips. Their entrees are awesome, cost wise is on par with the experience its usually 35$ for my girlfriend and I to go. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, I live near by and this place is one of the best.

It's different. Menu is creative. Decor is cheerful and fun. Food is delicious. The only drawback is not being able to stop eating the home made chips!

the food has always been good here. its fresh, not from a can like most mexican restaurants in the USA. the only complains i've heard are about the service, but i've been here at least 15 times since they opened and have not had a bad time yet. the other complains i've heard or read are that the food was bland. not sure what those people had ordered, but i've never had it. the biggest critic i know is this guy nixon i work with. he absolutely hates this place. but his main reasons are that he hates hippies and hipsters - which has little to do with the food. it is relatively expensive, but ultimately worth it in the end if you ask me. they also source a lot of their food products locally which is nice.
