Extremely sorry to learn that the owners are retiring. We have visited Las Camelias several times since we heard the news. All has been excellent, as it has been for the two-plus decades we've been regular visitors. We wish the owners (and founders) well and...More

Yummy authentic Mexican food. My chicken salad was delicious. The home made chips were the best that I have had. Would go back again.

Las Camelias always is good. We tend to order the same dishes, but they are well prepared and ample. The menu is traditional American-Mexican ... tacos; burritos; tostatas. Some of seafood specialties are very good. Service is prompt and courteous.

Absolutely loved this restaurant! Not only was the food done to perfection, especially the shrimp enchiladas which were recommended by the waiter, but the service was impeccable! Will definitely return next time we are in the area!

I have been going here for 20 years. This is gourmet Mexican cuisine, but still prepared in a traditional manner, so you will not be disappointed that it is strange or different. The owner chef takes many traditional dishes, and works his magic to elevate...More

Wonderful food in a family setting. All the food is fresh and delicious. We were a group of 10 people, including kids. Highly recommend the guacamole and quesadillas, which were hot and fresh. Burritos, enchiladas, tamale, fish tacos all super. Even the refried beans are...More
