El Camino Cantina

El Camino Cantina is a mammoth two-storey Tex-Mex cocina and cantina occupying a landmark building in South Bank.

With two other outlets in Brisbane, El Camino Cantina's 3rd and largest brings a unique, live entertainment version of the cult-classic Tex-Mex dining and entertainment experience to the popular precinct.

El Camino Cantina

In close proximity to the iconic Streets Beach, the 510-seat diner has three distinct zones: a colourful, umbrella'd outdoor dining area for 140 guests, a ground floor diner that caters to 120 guests, and a bar-centric 250-seat upper floor, known as Hotel Diablo, that accommodates extended dining and focuses on live entertainment, including a rotation of top DJs every weekend. 

El Camino Cantina

While the edgy club vibe and DJ line-up is unique to the South Bank location, the venue takes its tried and tested Tex-Mex cues, in terms of menu, legendary margaritas, décor, trademark cool tunes and free sombreros for every guest from its other venues.

El Camino Cantina

Price-friendly classic Tex-Mex dishes span tacos with eight flavour combinations, sizzling chargrilled fajitas with a choice of four fillings, spicy buffalo wings with three spicy sauces, and nachos loaded with all the Tex-Mex trimmings. A share-style Tex-Mex fiesta menu and drinks package is perfect for group events and celebrations.

El Camino Cantina

Tortillas are house-made daily, and bottomless baskets of complimentary chips and salsas are available all day. Unmissable weekly deals include $2 and $4 taco Tuesdays and 10-cent buffalo wings every Wednesday.

El Camino’s margaritas are legendary and to celebrate its opening El Camino is running a six-week long Ritapalooza festival, during which its famous margaritas will be available in 15 frozen flavours.
