Restaurant in a gas station. Beautifully decorated and excellent Spanish food. Need to see it. You will love it!

El Carajo literally translates to "Hell", but coming here is anything but. Located inside a BP gas station right off US-1, you'd never know there was a tapas and wine bar located inside. Walk inside and you'll be greeted by the El Carajo Bakery, where you can purchase light sandwiches, empanadas, and pastries to go. But walk further, and you'll find an enormous selection of international wines lining the walls and tables and chairs to sit at and enjoy said wine. Like most tapas places, it's not entirely cheap, but it's affordable and an experience in and of itself.

Great Tapas restaurant in an unexpected location. This used to be a hidden gem but its popularity has increased greatly since I discovered this great place. I suggest a making a reservation before heading there. This location has numerous wines to choose from that accommodate al price ranges. I have been here with friends and have always enjoyed dinner... Mind you we have driven 100 miles roundtrip to enjoy this restaurant.

Fantastic Spanish (as in Spain) food in a beautiful restaurant hiding inside a BP gas station. Easy to miss, but worth looking for. They also have a fantastic selection of reasonably priced wine. An unforgettable experience.
