El Camino in SD now open

El Camino Mexican Restaurant on Juniper Street in South Park is finally open--just in time for the South Park Walkabout tonight. http://www.thegrovesandiego.com/event...

Last night was their opening night, but they won't be serving alcohol (beer and wine) until next weekend. I stopped in late last night to check it out. The interior is very dark, but fun--I loved the blinking Virgin Mary and Jesus wall.

I did sample the black bean soup ($6), but was too full to try anything else. A quick glance at the rest of the menu revealed the usual offerings (tacos, burritos, quesadillas)--which kind of surprised me. I guess I was expecting more tapas or regional Mexican cuisine, especially considering there is a Sombrero's taco shop just around the corner on Fern Street.
