It’s a BIG party at El Camino Cantina and we are happy to be hosting it with a Tex-Mex meets rock’n’roll vibe and where the tequila and music are always flowing! The venue itself is like no other in Australia, flooded with enough neon lights to light up the Las Vegas strip and two restored 1957 Chevy trunks overflowing with complimentary hot chips and salsas. There is a massive bar, generous dining hall and private bar for those looking for big margaritas, legendary Tex-Mex & classic rock n’ roll hits. The food menu is unashamedly Tex-Mex (not Mexican) think tacos, sizzling fajitas, chilli bbq ribs, quesadillas and macho nachos. Perfect for parties and sharing with groups of all sizes. The drinks are dangerous with giant house made Tommy margaritas, local & imported craft beers and over 100 tequilas & mezcals.
