El Camino update

El Camino is open at 1600 Montford Drive, offering Tex-Mex food and decor -- the result of travels by Andy Henson and chef Todd Townsend to Austin and Houston. "We don't take ourselves too seriously," writes partner Barbara Henson; "that's why it's a 'Tex-Mex Joint.' Our hope is that customers will be able to enjoy authentic embellishments from Mexico and Texas that are different than the everyday Mexican restaurant decor." Artist Scott Partridge designed and painted three murals for the restaurant. All dishes (fajitas, nachos, enchiladas, burritos, etc.) are less than $13, and the place serves lunch and dinner daily. 704-525-8282; www.elcaminonc.com.
