Welcome to your new favorite Downtown bar. The El Camino Inn, located at 238 South Fourth Street (next door to sister-establishment Little Palace), opens for business tomorrow. This new venue has been described as a 70s-era San Diego style tex-mex dive bar. The drink menu features house-made margaritas and a selection of tequila, while the food menu keeps it simple with tacos, burritos, gorditas and tostadas. And don’t forget the baskets of chips and salsa.
There’s no exterior signage mounted at the entrance to El Camino, so the venue may feel somewhat underground at first. Don’t expect that to last long once the word gets out though. There’s a limited amount of space to be found here (similar to Dirty Frank’s down the street) so you might find yourself waiting in line for a drink if you don’t hurry.
