It’s Margarita time with the upcoming launch of El Camino Cantina who’s bringing its legendary Tex-Mex menu and sombrero-splashed, fun-fuelled vibe to the Gold Coast as of July 22.
Located on The Promenade at Robina Town Centre at the Former Lord of The Wings site the colourful restaurant and bar is ablaze with neon lights and fluorescent signage including it’s festively lit outdoor dining area.
Dishes are rated by one to three chilli symbols, which denote the level of spiciness of each dish and tortillas are house-made daily. Guests can dig into bottomless baskets of complimentary tortilla chips with vibrant salsas, then cruise through a selection of soft-shelled tacos, sizzling fajitas, buffalo wings, nachos and other classic Tex-Mex dishes.
Signature margaritas are served shaken or frozen, and in five tempting flavours: classic, strawberry, mango, tropical and a limited-edition flavour that changes every month. Beer lovers can cruise through a range of Australian craft and flagship Mexican draught and bottled cervezas.
The launch date coincides with the weekly wingding that is Wing Wednesday when sauced-up buffalo wings are 10-cents each with a drink purchase. Every Tuesday, El Camino’s incredible tacos are $2 each, and ‘Cadillac’ tacos are $4 each, with a drink purchase.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said the post-COVID dining landscape was a strong launchpad for a new restaurant on the Gold Coast.
“New openings are few and far between right now, but we are cautiously optimistic that the easing of Queensland restrictions and re-opening of the state border bodes well for our business,” Mr Pash said.
“The Gold Coast is a fabulous destination for day-trippers, interstate travellers and international visitors, and while the latter may not be able to visit the Coast any time soon, the region is certain to benefit from a boost in the number of Queenslanders exploring their own backyard, as well as from interstate visitors, while international travel is on hold.”
