You can always count on a good burger at The Elbow Room! Enjoy the authentic atmosphere, simple place that is better than any fast food burger joint in town. Last but not least don't forget the tots!

Passing through on IH-35 and stopped here to avoid the fast food franchise thing. Small Mom & Pop type place. Ordered the "award winning" cheeseburgers, they were pretty good but not award winning good.Staff was warm and the beer was cold. Prices can't be beat.
