Camellia Grill

Diner in Uptown & Riverbend

Go ahead, accept the straw. You'll see what we mean after grabbing your seat. And the food? We love the burger-chili-Reuben diner fare, and the fact that they all call each other – and you – ‘baby'. Plus, they dress in white shirts and black bow ties. What's not to like?

One of our favorite New Orleans stories happened here: apparently a woman walked into Camellia and asked if it served low-fat dessert. The line cook’s response? To dip a slice of pecan pie in melted butter and throw it on the grill. That’s what you get!
