Camacho's was our restaurant of choice after our visit to Universal Studios. It was not part of our plan. Honestly, we did this mostly for practical reasons such as; near by, hungry, love mexican, raining outside, no wait. I would certainly plan to go back. The tableside guacamole was perfect, each ingredient in correct proportion. Medium spice, per our request.... More

Food offered here at this location is quite tasty! Food quality has always been good. One thing I must say is that their service and food has been consistent over the years. During the last visit we ordered the El Presidente platter. Yeah...If you do that, don't order apps or eat the chips from the table. It's a plate for... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant Andres a day at Universal Studios. It was a great way to end the day, after eating the generic park food all day. There was a bit of a wait (30 mins). I rate this very good because the hostess (I believe it was Taitlani or close to that) was not a great... More

We dined here after a long day at Universal and loved every moment. The food was so good that I would recommend anything on the menu it will most likely taste amazing. We had the nachos with chicken and it was more than enough for 2 adults, so you can probably get a child or an adult that isnt quite... More

No wait at dinner time. Very pleasant waitress. Service was just the right pace. The food was very tasty and plentiful and the prices was very comfortable. You started with chips and salsa. Saw plenty of family dinning with the kids.

We enjoyed this restaurant with a tour group, which could have effected the quality of the food. We had over 100 in our group and we were able to eat in about an hour. The food was good but barely warm. The cheese enchiladas had a great deal of sauce and very little cheese.

After spending an active morning at Universal Studios, we came here for my grandson's birthday lunch. The menu has a good selection, the food was tasty and reasonably priced, and we really enjoyed our waitress. We had no wait, and the food was brought out quickly.

This is one of the best priced restaurants on Citywalk. The atmosphere is great. Service was fast but not overly friendly. The menu was huge. We were slightly disappointed with the enchiladas as they were not at all spicy and the rice was rather bland for Mexican rice. My daughter loved the fajitas and the tortilla chips were yummy.

I am a big fan of Mexican cuisine, but food there is definitely not so great. I had a guacamole and a veggie burrito which was mostly just black beans inside.. and the guacamole is just ok. The margarita was good though.
