    If its are on the menu, get the pumpkin pancakes or sw cheese grits. Also: chili + cornbread, huevos, cobbler, cheese fries, and veg grilled cheese. And tip well, especially if you get a milkshake.

    The Santa Fe breakfast bowl is crazy good! I think I've ordered it three trips in a row. Eggs, salsa, beans, cheese and avocado on corn fritters.

    Great place for kids. Saturday and Sunday breakfast/lunch usually has a wait list, but Sunday evenings about 6 there is always plenty of room. Try one of the cobblers or the chocolate shake. Read more

    The red beans and rice is crazy good! It's super spicy so I order a side of rice to mix in.

    I've eaten at this Elmo's 6 times over 8 years, am done. Every time a disappointment, today didn't finish my food. Omelette burnt, bacon inside it burnt, oatmeal cold, orange zest in French toast :(

    This is not huevos rancheros, this is terrible. Was looking forward to real huevos rancheros but should have gotten the breakfast bowl :/
