Camacho’s Cantina is spicy hot, and we’re not just talking about the food. This restaurant inside Aliante Station serves up soul-soothing Mexican food in a fun and trendy environment that’s a little more chic than your average South-of-the-Border eatery. For an example of the restaurant’s style, one need only look to the incredible fixture over the bar, a chandelier made out of 2,716 glass tequila bottles. This southern sophistication continues in the red and gold speckled, cinderblock-style partition separating the dining room from the bar area, the stone tile floors lined with river pebbles, hand-blown glass chandeliers, and dark leather banquettes against vibrant colored walls, all giving the restaurant a modern yet rustic feel. The overall result is one of the nicest-looking Mexican eateries in Las Vegas.
Camacho’s Cantina isn’t just all show, however; the restaurant’s menu consists of tasty and authentic Mexican classics, including appetizers, soups, salads, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, mariscos (seafood), chicken entrees, sides, and other Mexican specialties. If you’re feeling extra hungry, start off with one of the antojitos (starters), such as the Ceviche de Camarón, made with chopped shrimp marinated in lime juice with tomato, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño, cucumber, and avocado. And be sure to score some nachos with the Tableside Guacamole, made fresh before your eyes with avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapeños, and fresh lime juice.
Then, take a journey through the many regions of Mexico with Camacho’s traditional entrees, from easy favorites like the Fajitas served hot on a cast iron skillet to the more elaborate Chile Relleno, a large pasilla chile stuffed with Monterey jack cheese, coated with a crispy golden batter, and topped with ranchera sauce. For a hearty and satisfying meal, try the Carne Asada y Camarones al Gusto, a grilled New York steak sautéed with succulent shrimp in an achiote-citrus sauce, served with guacamole, pico de gallo, rice, and refried beans. The Sopes are also fun and delicious, fried corn-dough bowls layered with your choice of meat, refried beans, cheese, and vegetables.
And to make your meal truly authentic, don’t leave without sampling a little tequila. Camacho’s has over 100 premium tequilas to choose from, along with top shelf margaritas in various flavors to spice up your meal.
