Be wary of the tasty chips & dip - they are so delicious that you might fill up before your meal, but it's worth saving some extra room for the savory entrees as well!

Don't just assume that South Park's El Camino is yet another average Mexican food restaurant. Rather, this off-the-wall Hispanic eatery not only offers up patrons an unique twist on the typical Mexican fare but with a great vibe to boot. Filled to the brim with flourescent colors, Mexican folklore plastered on the walls, images of the Christ and Mary, and so on, it isn't just the sweet smell of spices that will entice you to enter El Camino. With great prices, some fusion of Spanish cuisine (like Sangria) as well as the local California-Mexican fare and a taste of the true spirit of Mexico with flambenco music bouncing off the walls, El Camino is a hidden favorite. Even more exciting is that while the area might reflect some of the traditional flavors of the cuisine, the restaurant itself is clean and uses fresh ingredients.
