Visited after shopping at the outlet mall down the street. The service was quick and the food was good. Great selection of menu items. I suggest the cheese dip and guacamole.

Family love coming here. Good food and service. Bar has plenty to choose from. Restrooms are clean. Parking is not an issue either.

The food here is very good. I would say it is on my top 10 list of places to eat in Dawsonville. The service is fast and friendly. They also make very strong drinks if you drink alcohol. Plenty of parking and a ton of choices on the menu. Love it!

Arriving just after 1pm during the Sunday rush, was happy to see a full parking lot. Before I entered from holding the door for the party behind us, the host had snagged my wife and we were seated immediately. Chips, salsa, and menus immediately, and received our lunch by 1:26. The table next to us was recycled with new customers... More

I try to eat here when I visit Dawsonville. Or the other one in Cleveland. This time I was let down. I arrived at 4 pm on a Tuesday there were only 3 other tables so not busy at all. It took forever to get seated, I was brought chips, but no drink order was taken. Finally a waiter (I... More

Having been there many times, my favorite is their chicken soup which is to die for. Several times for lunch, I ordered from their lunch menu where the selections are plentiful and filling. The staff is very professional; a place me and my friends like to have lunch

On our first visit to El Campesino, we found the service to be fast and friendly. Even though we were a large party, the service was attentive and kept up with the pace of the diners. The chips and salsa were just average; we ate Mexican in several restaurants in north Georgia, and we kept finding "salsa" to be watery... More

As always, the food is incredible. but unfortunately that was all that was excellent on this visit. the waiter appeared to be more interested in watching TV than getting our drink or food order. Approximate time waiting was over 30 minutes. (just to place the order) I could have understood if the place was busy, but my friend and I... More

I always eat here anytime I'm in Dawsonville. The one in Cleveland is just as good too. The El Campesino Special is my favorite. Seems like the prices have gone up a bit since I ate there last.

Ive been a regular customer here for several years, but we decided to have our company Christmas party there. Was the 28th of December 2015. Our office doesn't normally close until late, and these guys were so understanding they offered to stay open late so we could really enjoy ourselves. And we sure did. The food is awesome. the drinks... More
