While authentic Mexican food may not be the first thing that comes to mind as you plan your trip to Surf City, NC, once you’ve tasted the, oh so tempting flavors of Camino Real Mexican Restaurant, it will definitely be on your mind if you ever return.
From start to finish this menu is stacked with all the right foods to get your serious Mexican flavor fix. Grilled items are prepared over an open wood-fire grill for a truly authentic Mexican flavor. Appetizers include several different nachos offerings along with chorizo queso, guacamole dip, pico de gallo (served with slices of avocado), and chicken, steak, or cheese quesadillas. Specialty dishes include popular choices such as carne azada, carmines locos, arroz con pollo, fajitas, shrimp burritos, and chimichangas. A lunch menu is available Monday through Saturday that sports smaller portion sizes along with smaller price tags for Topsail Island and Surf City vacationers on tighter budgets.
The one rule, when it comes to vacations is that it’s always five o’clock somewhere. Popular drinks you might want to sample during your visit to Camino Real include the Corona margarita, Cancun parot bay, mango passion, and blue sea. They also have an impressive selection of draft and bottled beer including several imports such as: Negra Modelo, Modelo Especial, Corona, Corona Light, Sol, Dos Equis Lager and Amber, Tecate (can), and Carta Blanca.
Rumor has it that the flan alone is worth the trip. It’s a flan unlike any you’ll have elsewhere. However, that’s not the only dessert deliciousness going on at Real Camino. Make sure you save room for the chimicheesecake, fried ice cream, or friasco (in all its caramel goodness) too.
Camino Real offers daily drink and dinner specials too so be sure to check things out ahead of time. You can download and check out their entire menu here: http://www.caminorealonline.com/ to see which daily specials interest you most. This is one Mexican restaurant you don’t want to miss out on.
