They have great burgers and a wide selection of meals to choose from. Only downside is parking is limited may have to use parking lot across the street.

Eli’s is always dependable for good food and a place where you see local friends. In the bar, you are able to watch TV from their many TV’s or you can enjoy a meal in the more private dining area.
