    There are no shortage of tacos in this city, but El Camino is the whole package. We're talking fantastic tacos, sweet decor, great margs, an awesome happy hour and live music. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Got the usual chips and salsa, nachos with a side of guacamole, and the crispy chiles rellenos and everything was amazing. Waitress wasn't very attentive but the food made up for it. Highly recommend.

    Cheesesteak burrito was perfect! Loved the cheese sauce! Nachos were the best. Good price on appetizers and drinks. Our waiter and busboy were also pleasant. This place place is a must try!

    This fun Highland neighborhood joint has more margarita options than you can shake a stick at. There's something for every taste at both of their daily happy hours.

    El Camino is known for several things, including stiff drinks and the joint's near-bottomless bowls of queso — but the appropriately named grande nachos should be at the top of the heap. Read more

    The Queso is amazing!! And if debating between shrimp or fish tacos definitely go with shrimp. The fish are good but lacking the flavor that the shrimp have.

    Coin margarita is the only drink you need. The jalapeño caps go really well with them.

    This spot has a tequila list three pages long, not counting the flights, and offers many varieties of margs — but we're partial to the basic house drink Read more

    Beer's, chips and salsa were great!! The only other thing I would have liked is when the Nuggets, Broncos or Rockies play to turn down the music and turn up the TV's. Please waitresses when asked for
