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 this place at least once because its like nothing else in Phoenix. Prices are reasonable also.

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.!!!!!
