Saw reviews on the internet, so decided to try since I have never been here before. Parking lot was full a little after 8:00 Saturday morning (good sign) and there were no empty tables. It is a small building which appears shabby on the outside. Inside does not appear much better; however, I was not there for the ambiance. Current... More

This was a little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip! Don't go for the ambiance; go for the food and service. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very good and plentiful. You can tell by the full parking lot that it's a well-liked local restaurant, especially by the over-50 crowd.

Elaine's is your typical hometown meat and three; good southern cooking with waitresses calling you "honey!" I always see local friends at lunch!

I would never have stopped here except for two things: my local family said it was good and not too expensive, and the parking lot was completely full at a weekday lunch hour. It truly upholds the image of a local hole-in-the-wall, but the buffet is wonderfully home cooked. People pile in for both carry out and to eat there.... More

Great all home made food. Had meat loaf and it tasted like moms. Husband had grilled ham and turnip greens. He said greens were better than good. Great service. Will stop again. Great find.

Small restaurant, good food. Service is good usually, not too pricey. I will go back there and eat again, especially the catfish (lunch). They do not serve dinner

I've only been here for breakfast. Good every time. It's a quick in and out breakfast for when I'm by myself and also pretty good for meeting my co-workers before work. Nothing fancy! But very good food and very affordable.

The waitress always remembers what I drink and brings it to the table and makes you feel very welcomed. The food is always cooked fresh and just right. Prices are very reasonable.

"Liars Table" where locals hang out along with booths and other tables. Very friendly waitresses and owner. Good food. I eat there nearly every day. Some of the chairs need recovering otherwise I would have said Excellent.
