Lovers of tex-mex, tequila, 90’s tunes and overall good times, listen up. El Camino Cantina are opening their doors in Fitzroy on Friday, 14 June at 6pm and you need to be there.
To celebrate their grand opening they’ll be slinging free Jose Cuervo tequila, limited edition sombreros for anyone who booked, and putting on a massive happy hour featuring $7.50 margaritas, beer, house wines and house tequilas from Friday, 14 June to Sunday, 16 June. It’s a firm yes from us.
Step into their neon-soaked digs, don your sombrero and let the best of the 80’s, 90’s and early noughties pulse through your veins. The new Fitzroy warehouse is a colourful 400-seater bar and dining space and the perfect backdrop for your next ‘Gram.
Menu-wise, El Camino has all your favourite tex-mex sorted. Think: unlimited tortilla chips and salsa, loaded nachos, street-style tacos, huge burritos, sizzling fajitas, cheesy quesadillas and hand-made flour tortillas.
But we all know that a tex-mex feast and a margarita go hand in hand, so you can’t go past their coveted frozen margaritas in classic, mango, strawberry and tropical Red Bull flavours—or try whatever limited edition concoction is on the menu that month. For the launch and throughout June, you can get your hands on the Queen of Thrones, a limited edition vanilla flavour garnished with sprinkles. There's also cold craft and Mexican beers, plus more than 100 tequilas and mezcals available.
If you can't make it for the grand opening, El Camino have a regular rotation of drool-worthy deals to choose from. Sink your teeth into 10 cent buffalo chicken wings every Wednesday with the purchase of a 24oz margarita, 500ml tap beer or cider, grab $2 tacos every Tuesday, and half price fajitas every Thursday. A $15 beer and burrito lunch special is available every weekday, happy hour is from 4pm-6pm weekdays with $7.50 margaritas, house beer, wine and tequila, plus a $19 brunch offer every weekend. The choices are endless.
Whether you’re there for a quick drink or a large group fiesta, El Camino Cantina can certainly deliver. To avoid heartbreak, we highly recommend booking your table now so you don’t miss out.
