Take the trolley from downtown out through the Garden District. You go past the parks, Loyola and Tulane, and get off when the trolley makes a right turn. Then get in line for the best breakfast or burgers in town!

After seeing this hidden gem featured on a Food Network show and reading the reviews on this website we had to try it out. If you are thinking about getting to the Grill by cab from the French Quarter be ready to pay about $16-18. We took the cab there after a bad recomendation from our hotel but took the street car back ($1.25) through the Garden District. It lets you off on Canal and is a short walk back to the French Quarter.

The experiance that we had at the Camellia Grill was amazing. Great cheap "Late Night Eats" mixed with an atmosphere that is priceless. Marvin, our server, was classic New Orleans hospitality from the "word" to the show of providing us with our straws to the quality of service. If you want some great eats then this is the place for you. Recomend going there after midnight!!!

Great food, excellent service! The Pecan Waffles were the best I had. We also tried the Cheeseburger and Chicken Salad. All are reccomended. The best part was the prices. When we got on that street car we left those pricey joints behind us.....

We loved the Camellia Grill. My husband and I ate there 3 times during our week-long visit to New Orleans in May of 2004.

The cooks are entertaining, the servers are pleasant and kind, and you cannot beat the prices. This is a great place for families to eat.

Simply the best burgers anywhere!

Take a lovely trolley ride through the Garden District and enjoy the scenery. Where the street turns into Carollton Avenue, get off the trolley and have breakfast or lunch at the Camillia Grill. If you don't want to stand in line and would like to enjoy your meal in more leisure, go at a less crowded time (we had our lunch at 3pm...staying up late at night tends to throw your eating pattern off anyway, so you can do this!). All of the seats are situated around a double u-shaped counter (and this probably doesn't seat more than 30). Our waiter was really nice and friendly and the hamburger was exquisitely juicy. The chocolate freeze goes nice with the hamburger--get one. Give your vacation budget a break (burger, fries and freeze will run you around $10) and visit the Grill.
