El Camino Cantina is coming to Fitzroy

If you’re in Fitzroy for the night and have a hankering for a truckload of tacos, burritos and Buffalo wings, all washed down with a giant frozen Margarita, you’ll be stoked to hear that El Camino Cantina is opening up this month.

Located at the iconic 222 Brunswick Street in Fitzroy (made famous by Little Creatures and Fitzroy Social), El Camino Cantina is a large and loud, margarita-fuelled bar, with big-hitting Tex-Mex flavours and awesome tunes!

The huge, 400-seat, illuminated warehouse features an expansive bar, intimate and large dining areas, and is perfect for either a quick drink or a party-group fiesta. Flooded with enough neon to light up the Las Vegas strip, El Camino Cantina Fitzroy is where Tex-Mex meets rock’n’roll and where the tequila, music and fun flow until the early hours.

Unashamedly bringing legendary Austin, Texas Tex-Mex comida to the forefront, the menu boasts unlimited free chips and salsa served in restored Ford and Chevy trunks, cheesy queso goodness, hand-made flour tortillas, street tacos, big burritos, sizzling fajitas, crisp quesadillas and nachos loaded with toppings. They also offer complimentary, refillable baskets of tortilla chips and salsas all day, and cater to the vegetarians, vegans and gluten-frees diners.

While the food is unparalleled, it’s the giant margaritas that steal the show. Now home to Melbourne’s biggest and best margaritas, they’re served frozen and on the rocks, in four flavours – classic, mango, strawberry and tropical Red Bull – and a new, limited-edition margarita is unveiled every month! Seems like a pretty good reason to visit time and time again. Not forgetting the cold Mexican cerveza, you’ll also find a range of cold craft and Mexican beers and over 100 tequilas and mezcals are also available.

If you’re craving those Tex-Mex flavours during the week, you’ll be pleased to know El Camino offers some unmissable weekday deals that will have you saving some serious cash. On Wednesday’s you can get 10-cent buffalo chicken wings with the purchase of a 500ml tap beer/cider or 24oz margarita, there will be $2 tacos every Tuesday, and half-price fajitas every Thursday. A $15 beer and burrito lunch special is available every weekday, while happy hour is from 4pm-6pm weekdays with $7.50 margaritas, house beer, wine and tequila, and there is a $19 brunch offer every weekend. What’s not to love about that?

Embrace the Tex-Mex festivities: choose a colourful sombrero, pick a ‘rita’, enjoy loud 80s, 90s and 2000s rock, R&B and pop, and have yourself an unforgettable experience.

El Camino Cantina opens its doors on Friday June 14 from 6pm. If you book in over opening weekend, you’ll be privvy to a free Jose Cuervo tequila shot + Limited edition sombrero on arrival!
