El Camino Little Italy
El Camino Little Italy is the second location of the El Camino restaurants, the original is in South Park. The Little Italy location is at the corner of India Street and W Kalmia Street, in what used to be the Airport Lounge (same owner).
With fantastic indoor and patio seating, the El Camino is a fun and casual dining experience. On the outdoor patio you literally sit beneath the flight path as planes descend towards Lindbergh Field – if you’ve ever wondered what the under-belly of a plane looks like this is a great place to find out! An air hockey table, bar, pub-style tables with bar stools, and roll-up garage style doors that open up to the sidewalk on W Kalmia, lend for a very cool outdoor atmosphere.
Indoors the lighting is low, disco ball lighting dances across the walls setting the mood for more of a lounge experience. Whether you sit inside or out, the atmosphere is great.
The menu is simple and the food is good. A great time to check it out is for Happy Hour, which is Monday thru Friday from 5-7:00 p.m. where you can enjoy half price nachos and quesadillas and $3 margaritas, sangria or Coronas. Or for Taco Tuesday, which feature half off tacos and $3 Coronas. My favorite is the Super Chido Taco Salad!
El Camino opens nightly at 5:00 p.m. and offers late night dining and entertainment. Brunch is served on Sundays starting at 10:00 a.m. with $1 mimosas! In addition to great atmoshpere and food, El Camino also features live entertainment – check out the Entertainment Calendar!
