Great atmosphere, wonderful food, and great service! First time there and were surprised to find out it is owned by same people who own Shell and Bones. That explains a lot! Parking can be difficult but there is a public lot on Whalley (with free EV chargers) within a 5 minute walk.

Highly recommend and will be going back soon!

Dinner was absolutely amazing. We shared the chicken and fish tacos which were to die for and of course ended with the most delectable churros to finish. We can’t wait to go back.

We had one of their family style meals. The food was excellent. Great mix of spicy and savory. Plus eating family style was fun. Only downside might be that their delicious drinks are kind of small and expensive.

Camacho Garage is the place to be in Westville for the very best drinks and Mexican food. Their outdoor seating is absolutely fantastic in the summer.

Food was ok. Some of the dishes have changed so I was a little confused when we got our food. What I found to be weird was I asked for a larger margarita....so basically a bigger glass which literally every place in the universe will do for an up charge. I was told “no we can’t do that”. I mean technically you can do it you should just say you won’t. I didn’t mind paying an up charge for the drink but being told no for basically no reason was annoying. A lot of times drinks have to much mixer or are to sweet, this is what I was trying to avoid but apparently they won’t make accommodations here. They wanted you to order another drink so they can make more money which makes no sense because you would still make more money by up charging. Honestly service has been a issue here the times I’ve been here. It takes forever for someone to come take your order and last time we waited almost 15 min just for drinks. Food comes out fast is is just “ok”. I’ll spend my money on closer places downtown if it means better service.

An interesting, creative menu that provides a great meal at affordable prices. This is a great place to dine with vegetarian friends or family members, since there are many meatless options.

The service was terrific as was the food. Our only disappointment was our table, it was right at the front door! Truly, the worse location. But we made the best of it.

Never had Tacos Di Bierra before - cooked with beef consume - fantastic. Shells were tasty and crisp. My dining party enjoyed everything. Drinks were great.

For the most part, Camacho Garage was very good. The carnitas were a little dry, but the sweet plantains and guacamole were very good. The mojitos were amazing. The inside was a little noisy for conversation but overall I would recommend Camacho Garage.

Mexican street corn is outstanding, as are the tacos. Great lively vibe, extensive outdoor dining availability, both covered and not, high noise level at the bar but tolerable in the outdoor dining spaces. Fun place for dinner and drinks.
