Was recommended by our hotel. The food was ok, but nothing special, and all of it was very bland. A drink that we didn’t have was on the bill, but quickly taken care of. I guess. I prefer Mexican “joints” to restaurants that have pages...More

This is an interesting place. it has the layout of a diner like Cocos. The menu is quite broad. We had the cane aside and it was good but not great. However, the refried beans were very tasty. The service was very good.

Great food, great service. It's in a converted Denny's so it's hard to get over feeling like it. Despite that we return time and time again

We've eaten here many times. We also eaten at dozens of other Mexican restaurants in the valley, some good, some really good but El Campanario is the best. It is reassuring that most of the customers are local and Mexican Americans. Families come here. We...More

This restaurant is in an odd location that is awkward to get to. Tried milanesas which is apparently not cooked regularly; it was just ok. The camarones a la diabla were much better and a reasonable kick to it. Seems like a popular place w/...More
