It's been probably 15 years since I was here last and it's as if time stood still. Fried Yuca and papusas were awesome, the empanada was delicious. Bananas and sour cream/beans were even better than I remembered. We ordered everything on the apps menu because those are the things I never forgot about this place. Every person should just try...

It was alright, nothing to write home about. Was hoping for some flavor, guess Salvadorian cuisine is not for everyone.

I love the food here! Pupusas with the cabbage and red sauce, Patanos Frito with black beans and heavy cream, and all the entrees have been delicious. I've been going here for many years and I've introduced many friends to this place.

This was my first visit to Elianna's. The tamales are awesome very clean masa flavor! The Papusa's are very tasty as well!! Also the yucca con chicharon was very good!!! This is a family owned and operated Restaraunt with the very friendly atmosphere!!! It's almost as if you are in San Salvador C.A.!!!!!

We used to eat here frequently when we lived in Phoenix. We moved away about seven years ago, and just recently visited. We made a point to have lunch at Eliana's, one of our all time favorites. We are happy to report it is still just as good! We always order the Eliana's favorite, which includes grilled chicken, their delicious... More

Ate here for lunch on a Saturday in July. Went with mom, sis, her partner. When we entered, there were patrons at 2 other tables. I'm guessing they do a brisker business during the work week, at least for lunch. The place was very clean and well arranged. Nice El Salvadoran pictures on the walls, as well as "stuff" from...

If you have never eaten in Elsavador the closest place you will find in Phoenix is Elianas. I can't explain how good the food is and clean everything was. I have traveled to Elsavador several times and everything I had here is exactly like being there. This place makes me want to move to Phoenix.
