Happy Hour is from 5-7 M-F. All of our regular margaritas are just $5! El Camión Cantina, offers quality ingredients, innovative preparations, and a lively atmosphere in a casual corner spot. Visit us and experience the exciting new menu from Chef Jorge Torres, classically trained and a seasoned veteran of the New York Mexican food scene, including six years as sous chef at downtown Mexican staple Sueños.

Chef Torres' signature salmon with sautéed spinach, cilantro rice and chipotle sauce is a crowd favorite, while his take on classic roast chicken—with chipotle pomegranate sauce and roasted potatoes—is an instant classic.

Brunch features the perfect mix of Mexican favorites and American classics, such as huevos rancheros and huevos Benedictos. Lunch standouts include tortas (Mexican sandwiches) like the Pombazo, a guajillo-dipped brioche stuffed with grilled chorizo, peppers and queso Oaxaca, and the El Camión Burger, which you can spice up to your liking with our selection of salsas and condiments. And whether you come for lunch, brunch, dinner or an antojito at the bar, you can enjoy our homemade corn tortillas, hand-fashioned on our own custom-made tortilla press.

Speaking of the bar, this casual spot is a great place to catch up with friends while sampling from among our extensive list of 101 premium tequilas.

So, come in and say hello to us on the corner of E. 12st St and Avenue A. El Camión ("the bus") is the new place to be in the East Village. Get on it!
