We had Elvira’s cater two nights of our driving trip. The chicken and waffles were amazing! I have never had a waffle taste so good. The pulled pork the next night was even better! The meat was so good you didn’t even need any BBQ sauce. I hope we can work it in next year as well! Phenomenal!

Scrumptious
Always an incredible experience here. The burgers are so delicious. The chicken tenders are yummy. The roasted turkey sandwich with pesto and avocado was quite tasty. Service was excellent. Restaurant was clean. Will certainly return.
