El Camino Cantina | Multiple Locations

What better way to celebrate tequila than getting lost in the neon amidst a six-day, agave-fueled fiesta? From Tuesday, July 20 to Sunday, July 25, Tex-Mex fans can score themselves a tequila and spice marinated chicken taco, as well as tequila, lime, chilli and paprika-coated chicken wings for a unique flavour kick. The celebration is set to roll all week with premium tequila flights available from 1800 and Patrón and a limited edition Redskin-infused margarita. Did we mention all margs are $10 every Thursday?
