Welcome to el Camino

¡Bienvenidos!

El Camino Mexican restaurant & cantina has been a fixture in the popular Fremont neighborhood of Seattle for more than 20 years. Located beside the iconic “Rocket” at the corner of Evanston & N 35th, El Camino serves authentic, homemade Mexican cuisine that honors the vibrant, fresh flavors of Oaxaca and southern Mexico.

Our traditional margaritas are not only famous city-wide, but they are the perfect accompaniment to our rich, spicy bistec de capitalino or the Northwest fusion of wild salmon in tamarindo sauce. Try one of our unforgettable appetizers, like our three-cheese shrimp quesadilla or plantain chips with succulent house-made guacamole. We even make our traditional desserts in-house.

As one of the premiere independent Mexican restaurants in Seattle, El Camino’s eclectic, seductive atmosphere transports guests from our bustling urban neighborhood (with great local shopping!) to a well-deserved Mexican vacation. Relax. Escape. Enjoy at El Camino.
