Thrillist: 8 Underrated Restaurants

We are humbled that Thrillist writer Bradley Foster listed El Camino as one of The 8 Most Underrated Restaurants Throughout Seattle… with the caveat that “this place isn’t technically underrated, as anyone you ask about (El Camino) will only have great things to say about it. It’s more like this venerable Mexican joint in the shadow of Fremont’s iconic rocket is seriously overlooked. El Camino’s bar is the best place in the city to celebrate your birthday, first dates, day drinking on the back patio, or just eating delicious Oaxacan food made with Northwest ingredients.”

We like to think we hold our own with the other acclaimed Fremont restaurants that the article mentions. Our regulars know that El Camino is like a secret treasure in the heart of our eclectic neighborhood.

If you follow the link in the article to The Best Place For Celebrating Your Birthday, you’ll find that Thrillist points directly to yours truly with this tip for pros: “A bartender margarita and a quesadilla on the funky back patio will make you feel young again.”

We couldn’t agree more. Welcome to El Camino, the best place for margaritas in Fremont. You may have found the fountain of youth!
