El Camino

PrintType: Mexican/SouthwesternArea: Highlands Price: $$$$ 

It’s called “Mexican street food.” Translation? “Even though we don’t have white tablecloths,” co-owner Shawn Cantley (also of the Silver Dollar) says, “we’re doing everything as if we’re a Michelin-starred restaurant. We just do it playing loud punk rock for a bunch of people wearing T-shirts.” To-order tortillas, pork marinated for 24 hours and roasted on a vertical spit, fresh guacamole. One of the tiki bar’s shareable punches comes with a shot of 150-proof rum that’s set ablaze. Hard to top its Bardstown Road patio.
