Dishes to try
El Camión, Fish Taco
Fish Taco
Must-Try
A beautiful balance of flavors: ocean-fresh fish, sweet salsa, and sour cream. A great fish taco delivers textural excitement, too, as in the wicked crunch of the fish's cornmeal coat and crisp cabbage garnish.
Flank Steak Taco
Must-Try
El Camión, Chicken Taco
Chicken Taco
Must-Try
Chicken for the chicken taco is tiny grilled pieces infused with a margarita marinade. Companions inside the tortilla include pico de gallo, shaved cabbage, and sour cream.
El Camión, Quesadilla
Quesadilla
Quesadillas are really nothing more than melted cheese wrapped in soft tortillas. This is good cheese, and these make for a good appetizer before a meal of two or three tacos.
