El Campeon

I was hanging out with my buddy Colin on Thursday in Laguna Niguel and we decided to hit up a Mexican joint for dinner. We drove down to San Juan Capistrano and got dinner at El Campeon. I love my Mexican food and I wasn’t sure what to expect with this place. On first impressions it had all the right elements. The restaurant is situated in a Mexican grocery store and bakery, I knew good things were to come.

The menu was pretty vast and I had trouble deciding. I ended up going with the enchilada plate which came with rice and beans.

I got 2 chicken and 1 cheese enchilada with red sauce and it was amazing! These probably go down as the best enchiladas I’ve ever eaten next to Mi Nidito in Tucson. Colin and I simultaneously looked up and said “damn” as soon as we tasted our food. If you’re ever down in South Orange County, you have to check out El Campeon.



  1. If you love Mexican food, go to La Taquiza on Fig for lunch. Can’t go wrong with anything on their menu.
