We liked it but it closed. Don't know why. Another restaurant is opening in its place. Much of the food was just okay; some was inedible. I think there are other Elsa's' around.

As Mexican restaurants go this place is about average. They have great cocktails, so who cares? It's a good place for groups and families to have a good time as long as the meal isn't the highlight

Service was terrible. How many times do you have to ask for water. Good was bland and unremarkable. Salad full of brown lettuce. This place will be closed soon if they don't pick it up!

Elsa's was recommended to us by friends who live in the area. We were very pleased. The fajita burritos were delicious, as are the tequila line shrimp. Service and atmosphere were great. Very nice place, great food and hospitality.

Fun place, great good, good service. The wet burrito is our favorite. Beef is spiced well and plentiful. Salsa is homemade and chips are fresh.

I think they're not sure if they want to be a bar or a restaurant. Food is passable large portions. Service was just average. Seem to take a little long to get the food out and they weren't busy

I don't recall seeing any calorie count on any of the entrees. But I don't suspect they are low calorie. Hope this helps!
