My wife and I stopped by one weekday night. The restaurant wasn't crowded but it took 15 minutes before anyone noticed us. Everything took forever; getting a menu, getting our drinks, getting the food, getting the check, and getting the final bill. And for what? For some of the worst, blandest, tasteless food I've ever not eaten. We couldn't even... More

We ate here at about 5:45 on a Thursday night. By the time we left, it was really crowded. They brought us lots of chips and salsa to start things off. Our server was friendly and attentive. At our table, people ordered ACP, fajitas, carnitas, mahi tacos, and taco salad. Everyone but the person who ordered the taco salad thought... More

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.
