We saw a commercial on TV and drove a bit to get here. It was a great decision as the food and service were spectacular. We thought about trying the breakfast buffet but the server suggested we not because it was almost over. So we both had fried chicken and it was perfect...crispy on the outside and moist and juicy...

We stopped here for breakfast, and even though the outside was not "modern", this place will really surprise you upon entering the front door. The service was very prompt, the food hot and tasty, just a great find during our travels. Oh, and the French Toast was like something from the carnival. Again, another place where the outside may deter... More

Been here many times. You can order off the menu or partake in the buffet at lunch/dinner. The food is pretty good. Lots of seating. The staff is good and have been here for awhile. Easy access off Montana or Airport. Good food.

We had both breakfast & lunch here...would recommend to anyone. The portions were generous & tasty. The staff was always close by to refresh drinks. The interior decor was interesting & the music was enjoyable...60's music, I think. Wouldn't mind going back again.

Elmer's is a regular "go to" for my family whenever my two daughters are in town. We go there for the Fried Chicken and Livers, but it's so much more than that. Elmer's is quite an unassuming place on the outside. You'd just as quickly pass it by as stop there on any given day, but the call of low... More

It's for real. Everything about it screams 60's and 70's. It could be on "Diners, Drive-ins & Dives". I had the roast beef and he had the Philly. He said the Philly wasn't the best he'd ever eaten but he cleaned his plate-so it obviously wasn't the worst. My roast beef was really good. Plain white bread with fork tender... More

The chicken was OK. First they served me a plate of cole slaw. Fairly flavorless. The chicken was OK. It came with some lettuce on the side.(No dressing) Mashed potatoes with gravy (or fries) The gravy was not a chicken gravy. It was OK but I'm not sure what it was. They had a salad bar which was small and... More

It's one of the older restaurants in El Paso. The Chicken and Tilapia are very good. They have a daily lunch buffet and serve breakfast all day.

I was told that the chicken was Famous, but the sides were not as good. The service was top notch though. The 50's music and the 60's look gave it a sad atmosphere. The place could use a face lift. I would call it a Dive not a family Resteraunt.
