My all time favorite place. I love going in and talking to Rosie about the old days. Place my order and don’t forget the beer.

Grew up there. Haven’t found anything that compares to the special quesadillas since. I find myself craving them, and have made the trip back to EC just for Camacho’s.

A hidden gem. Family owned and operated for 70 years. Hadn't been back for 15 years and it was nice to take a trip down memory lane. Food was excellent, don't expect anything else besides great food a...nd down home meal. Don't be in a hurry and just enjoy a valley institution. #5 is out of this world. See More

I can remember going to Camacho's my entire life. The carne asada burrito is out of this world. It is still our favorite stop for Mexican when we are able to make the trip to California from Georgia.

Not worth the wait...not prepared to serve a group. This was my third time there. All 3 times it was like we were bothering them and it was a chore taking our money for average mexican food....

Grew up with my grandparents (Virgil & Mary Bigham) and my parents taking me here every time we'd come visit. It continued to be tradition with my family. Now we are in Texas and we miss el centros fi...nest. You can't go to el Centro without going to camacho's. See More

A hidden gem out in the middle of nowhere. Before GPS you just had to know where it was or you would never find it. Great food and friendly people. Have been going there forever.

First experienced these chile rellenos 15 years ago. Still worth the drive from San Diego. If you are in the area, it's a must!

Our carne asada showcases the love that we put into our food. Rosie hand trims, preps, and marinates every single last piece of quality meat that comes through our kitchen. We never have (and never will) finely chop our asada to hide gristle and fat like the other guys, nor do we hide the flavor behind rice, beans, cheese and everything else the other guys throw in their burritos (but hey, if that’s your thing, we’d be happy to customize your order). What you get is what we’d serve ourselves: high quality meat and pure guacamole wrapped up in a delicious tortilla. And we are pretty darn proud of it. #juanitataughtuswell #acceptnoimitations #since1946

We’ve been asked a few times over the years, and yes, we do have a Ⓥ (vegan) option on our menu: the Jennifer enchilada. By the way—let Rosie know you’re vegan and she’ll take care of you. 😊 Happy hump day, #imperialvalleyvegans !
