Description: Kamilos 333 is well known for its quality and great service since 1975, it’s located in the renowned “Barrio de Sta. Teresita”. The ambiance and decoration that consists mainly of vintage field tools evokes the antique rural Jalisco. Their signature dish is the budget friendly “Karne en su jugo” which is a 100% local dish. For what we mentioned above and for its family oriented and traditional nature, it is in the top ten essential restaurants to be visited in Guadalajara. We hope to see you soon!

Had a great meal here with friends who were local to the area and assured us that karne en zu jugo (their spelling for "carne en su jugo", in English "meat in its own juice"). A plate turned up at the edges to allow a kind of broth in which a very tender meat marinates. I definitely recommend this dish as a taste of local culture, and this establishment as the place to get it. We had a really delicious meal for about 160 pesos per person (about 9 US dollars each), not counting tip. We probably overtipped at places like this that we really enjoyed, but even a 30% tip on that only brings it up to $12 per person, which is a really amazing price for a great meal if you're thinking in US dollars, and such amounts obviously mean a great deal to hard-working service staff.

From what I understand, the founder of this restaurant originally mastered the recipe for Karne en su Jugo (Karne with a K is how they spell it). You must visit this restaurant while in Guadalajara. They first serve you a small bowl of bean soup that is out of this world. The rest in pure delight. The waiters were caring and at your beckon call.

We highly recommend this restaurant for a very pleasurable dine! Their beef, any way you like it prepared or 'carne en su jugo' (tender beef in beef/bean broth) are exceptionally tasty, flavorful and tasty! The service is outstanding and exceeded our expectations, especially when Gustavo the manager went from table to table checking on all dinning guests. Enrique was our waiter and he was very courteous, attentive and very knowledgeable with all dishes. Overall, we finally found the perfect restaurant to look forward to for a perfect meal, it's like being home with friends!

Very grateful that a waiter at another restaurant recommended this place to us. The specialty is Carne en es Jugo (meat cooked for a long time in it's own juices, kind of like pulled pork, except it's beef). This is a wonderful dish and one you must try while in Guadalajara. Kamilos333 and the place right next door are famous for this dish. However Kamilos333 has way more atmosphere and doesn't look or feel like a "take out". (The place next door has won the Guinness Book of World Records for the Fastest Food Delivery, but we were not in a rush). The service at Kamilos was wonderful and we had a great conversation in English with the owner. This is a very casual family sort of place. Unique Mexican furnishings too. There is a Sorbet place across the street, which we heard wonderful things about, but they were closed when we got out.

I go every time I am in GDL, and I have never been disappointed. This week, my associate and I made the annual pilgrimage and had a wonderful meal of Karne en zu Jugo. There are other restaurants in GDL that serve this local, rustic dish, including the Karne Garibaldi chain, whose main flagship restaurant is right next-door to Kamilos. None can compare. Kamilos has had the same chef in the kitchen, preparing each meal perfectly, for 42 years. This is why it is always right, always delicious.
