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.

I live near this place but i don't go there to often but in the last month I've been there about three times. It seems like the quality of the food is going downhill very fast.

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
