El Camino – It’s Where to Eat This Weekend

November 12th, 2010 Posted by Chefs, Culinary Connectors, Denver, restaurants No Comment yet

El Camino is a Mexican restaurant located in the Highlands neighborhood (the old Swim Club space). This “community tavern” serves up tacos, enchiladas and burritos, offers live music and features local artists.

El Camino prides itself on being a “green” restaurant. They recycle all bottles, cans and cardboard. Additionally they use 100% wind power. They source locally, use all natural meats and make their sauces, guacamole and desserts from scratch daily. During the summer they grow vegetable in their rooftop garden. I’m glad El Camino is doing these things but that is not why I am suggesting you eat there this weekend. Sourcing locally and making menu items from scratch is expected.

I’m suggesting you eat at El Camino this weekend because it’s a fun, casual spot where you can get a good meal and not break the bank. They even have a good kids menu. Each time you walk through the door the servers at El Camino will treat you as “family”. You can even email a picture from your meal at El Camino and they will post it on-line in their family album. On Sundays enjoy their brunch and football. I double dog dare you to try a “manmosa”, their take on a mimosa.

As it says on El Camino’s website – you should come – it’s super fun.

El Camino – 3628 West 32nd Ave., Denver. 720-889-7946.
