Good for something different

Get Gyro plate. Half/Beef/Chicken. Leb. Tea is good as well. Owner is kind of creepy-walks around and bothers customers while their eating.

Met a friend here for dinner. First time visitor for me. My first impression was the building was clean and relative new. There were a lot of vehicles in parking lot so anticipated the restaurant to be crowded. Upon entering I was amazed there was only one customer in the facility - my friend. This restaurant is on the corner... More

Great Food and friendly staff!! What more could you ask for. I enjoy the Chicken Shwarma every time I go. And the falafel are good too!

I'm not sure what kind of ingredients these guy are using in their food, but at the prices they're asking, there must be gold or platinum in them.. WAY too overpriced for the level of quality.

Kamal's was very good when it first opened and for a while afterwards, but it has now declined significantly. I think that's a natural evolutionary process that affects many businesses. There's a noticeable lack of interest in providing good food and good value. I've noticed this for some time now but it was really on display during my last visit.... More

If you like Greek and Lebanese food, you will definitely love Kamal's. The staff is extra attentive and the food is great. I've been numerous times as I live close by. I've only been once where the owner was not there. I love their gyros and kabobs.

Absolutely the best Lebanese food I have ever tasted. It is worth the trip to drive to Gonzales and eat at Kamal's Kafe. My favs are the chicken shawarma plate and anything with shrimp. Love the vegetarian plate. I husband loves the kebobs. Always love the salad they serve with the dinners as well as the tabouli and hummus w/... More

I'm shocked at all the positive reviews. I've eaten here several times in the past and swore it off after my last order was not even edible and had to send back twice. Even the fried cheese was burned and sitting in black grease. I was dumbfounded that the waiter even placed it on the table. At the insistence of... More

Driving along Hwy 61, Kamal's Kafe caught my attention. I'm glad I stopped in for lunch, because I may have had one of the best chicken shawarma plates I've eaten in a long time. The chicken was thinly sliced and grilled to perfection. Business appears to be doing well; the restaurant was filled with diners, yet I was still able... More

We go almost every Friday since we discovered this place late last year. The gyro, stuffed grape leaves, and lamb chops are some of our favorites. The fried cheese is wonderful, but beware of garlic breath afterwards. They have Lebanese Ice Tea that has orange water in it and is delicious. Fast service, fresh food, great staff, good prices, and... More
