Great surprise at the end of a strip mall! Our service was terrific and our food was even better. The portions were generous and the value outstanding!

Elena's is a great place for a weeknight dinner out with the family. Food is good, prices are inexpensive. Servers are so good with the little kids! Only downside, no changing table in bathrooms.

We took a walk to Elena's one morning for breakfast on a friends recommendation. There was a line on a Saturday morning, waited about 20 minutes. They offer a 2 for $13.99 breakfast special that was good and plenty of food.

Oh my. What a menu. When you are ready for a home cooked meal but do not want to cook yourself, this is the place. We love the breakfast, the lunch and the menu at night too. Many nights they have specials like fish fry, pork chops.. and no reservations to enjoy. One of our favorite places to meet with... More

Delicious, great service from the moment you enter the place. The food can't be beat for the price. A friend highly recommends the bean soup which is not always on the menu. You can't go wrong with any of the menu items.
