A fun place to dine, this Mexican restaurant stands out for it's unique menu and signature corn appetizers: hence the name Elote (pronounced el-otay). The restaurant is attached to a large motel. Entry is via a long uphill ramp (not sure if there's handicapped access)....More

No reservations but worth the wait. Get a drink and talk to another guest waiting to be seated. You won’t be disappointed.
