Great staff and Leroy always goes out of his way to make it a beauty experience. Ribs. Killer. White sangria. Buckle up. So good. Get off the strip lined up with the same old same old for a great experience. Like any other restaurant your attitude and engagement with the staff either elevates or degrade your experience with attitude. This... More

The menu items are interesting and sound super delicious. That's about where things end. The staff seem bored and the owner sits like a blob of gum out on the balconey, taking up one of the best tables for himself and his friends.

We liked that the menu selection offered dishes that other restaurant didn't. We started our dinner with delicious homemade juice and local beer. The two young waiters were serving guests with a smile and we did not... More

I was attracted to this place by the ambience and seeing a few other dinnerware I thought it would be worth it. I ordered the Briskett as not too many places around offer this. I waited and waited and after 1 hour when I spoke with the waitress it was obvious she had screwed up my order and I think... More

El Camello has a new menu featuring barbecue. We live part-time in Granada and have been there many times, but this is the first time with the new menu. I had barbecue brisket which was excellent and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich which she also said was excellent. The people are friendly and the prices are reasonable. About... More

Also grilled chicken with satay sauce. Both tender, moist and delicious, as was the coleslaw. Worth a visit. Good servixe too and easy to find.
