Upon moving my oldest son into his dorm at MTSU, we decided to have one last lunch together until he comes home again.
We chose Camino Real. Mistake.
Upon entering the restaurant, the air was thick and muggy. Maybe the management was trying to save on the utility bill.......not a good thing in late August. When you break a sweat while eating lunch, inside, it's not enjoyable.
Secondly, the tables, floor, and seats were sticky. The mugginess inside only exacerbated the stickiness.
In the south, we expect our sweet tea to be brewed and sweet. Their sweet tea tasted like instant tea with zero sugar.
On top of the sticky and muggy situation, my son and I noticed that our legs were being bitten by what we thought were maybe mosquitos or knats. So, the entire time we're sitting in this sauna, drinking our mop water tea and eating the bland chips with the boring salsa, we're fending off these bugs; which we found to be these tiny hard shell bugs. We still don't know what they were, but they were attached to our legs when we left.
The food was just as bland and really not worth mentioning.
All of this was made more irritating with a waiter that had a cough that sounded like he'd been smoking a pack of Camels with no filter since he was about 5 years old.
Normally, Mexican restaurants are staffed by smiling and welcoming faces that at least SEEM like they're appreciative of your business.
Not these guys. From the hostess to the waiter and finally the owner/manager, all had the WORST attitudes that I have EVER dealt with in a Mexican restaurant. Not ONE of them smiled or said thank you the ENTIRE time.
This was the WORST experience I've ever had at a Mexican restaurant.
We were actually happy to get finished and get the heck outta there.

Generally good food. There is a location near where I live so we ate there a lot. Service is outstanding, my family is recognized and treated well when we eat there. I have had many take out orders come home incorrectly, this is a problem when you are feeding a family of five, there are many places to spend money on food . The food is pretty good but really standard fare, i.e. cheese sauce on burritos. They should strive for more authentic Mexican style foods, consumers can handle it.

This place is nice for traditional mexican food, the food is hot and the flavors are authentic. The menu has everything you would want from tamales to burritos to nachos. There are a few other locations in town depending on where you are, if you want traditional Mexican, you can't go wrong with camino

The folks at Camino really know how to cook! They fix everything to order, so someone who can't take heat does fine there. Their guacomole salad is to die for. They cook their pork over a fire for hours, then grill it a little- it is the best!
