We stumbled across this treasure this morning and it became and instant family favorite. An absolute must if you are anywhere nearby. The people are awesome and the food even better. All purchased fresh from local farmers and tastes great. Don't miss this gem in the Smokies. You will not be disappointed.

This is a family friendly, great food and interesting atmosphere. The decor is dedicated to local photos of bears. You can eat outside on the wrap around porch. It is wheel chair accessible with ramp in the back. Service was awesome.

Truly outstanding! Had dinner. Chicken and waffles best ever. Excellent fried potatoes and onions. Homemade chocolate cream was best ever. Can’t go wrong!

Service was friendly and exceeded expectations for being speedy. (I have waited longer in a Taco Bell line). Husband was a bit underwhelmed by his portion size. However, I declare the chicken strips to be the best I have had (plenty to share will still-hungry hubby) and the potatoes and onions really hit the spot.

Still Awesome
My biggest regret about Elvira's was that I never stopped there after it opened for a LONG time. Anyway, now that we know about it...even if staying in Gburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, or even the Kodak side (a newer habit of mine to avoid traffic...More ... read more

Elvira's is a super cute little diner right by cades cove. We stopped on the way home for lunch and was not disappointed. The fried green tomato BLT was really yummy and fresh. My daughter had chicken salad that had lots of flavor. The service is great and the wait was very short even though they were quite busy.

Vacation in the smokies is always fun! We mostly love all of the great nature settings and the wild life. The one thing that usually comes up short for us while in the region is the food. We do not drink alcohol so the bar/restaurants have not appeal to us. This rules out your sports bar type eateries too. Plenty of good breakfast op ... read more

One of the greatest sandwich/soup combos I've ever had. Turkey BLT w fried green tomatoes... Fire! Tomato bisque was delish. This Yankee always cuts his sweet tea w unsweetened tea. That was delicious too.

We got a to-go omelet and pancakes. The pancakes were thick and fluffy. Very delicious. The omelet was perfectly cooked with fresh fillings. The biscuit and gravy that came with it were a nice addition to the omelet. The gravy was a nice surprise as it was expertly seasoned. Not too salty but with lots of flavor.

Our last night in the Tennessee foothills, searched and found Elvira's. Beef stroganoff (special) was just like Moma fixed it. Mustard greens, corn medley, fried apples, mmm...mmm! If you like Cracker Barrel you will like this place. Down home. Patriotic owner too who loves her country!

Wow.. Do yourself a favor and get the chicken and waffles. I don't know if it is because I fished all day or not, but they were some of the best I have ever had. For my side I had the potatoes-n-onions and they were great as well. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with my meal, and the service was amazing as well. 10/10.
Parker M. via - Jun 13, 2020
LOVE THIS PLACE! We went for lunch and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so much that we went back for breakfast. You can't go wrong. It's worth the drive from Townsend, Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge!

I cannot say enough good things about Elvira's Cafe. Not only is the food exceptionally good but the service there is even better.

My wife and I dined at Elvira's on Friday evening. I had the prime rib--cooked to perfection and would melt in your mouth. Wife had liver and onions--ugh to some but it was tinder and good. Never been disappointed there.
