“Good food in a relaxed environment”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Just got in from a long road trip and wanted something nearby and easy. Lots of Happy Hour items 2 choose from. Definitely try the grilled tacos as they were absolutely delish! Portions are decent but nothing over the top for "big appetites", just FYI.

Place is clean and inviting with outdoor seating available if u cthoose 2 weather the desert heat under water misters.

We came at a dead time but service was great. Seems more of a locals joint ~ we will probably go back when in the area.

“Always Good!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Each time we go to Eli's we enjoy the food more & more. Just recently my husband had a salad there which was delicious, that week I had joined friends ( won't name) for lunch & ordered almost the same salad as he had in Eli's. I paid $7 more then we paid in Eli's and it wasn't as good!
For great food & value you can't go wrong!

“Birthday Celebraton Happy Hour Yumminess!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Great happy hour deals with delicious food, we had the potato skins and chicken strips and ended up ordering seconds. Really friendly staff and even live music! We had a blast, plenty of seating (outdoor as well) pool tables and clean restrooms which is always a plus. Definitely a do over!

“Great night out”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

It was our first time to Eli's, we went with some friends who love the place. We had 2 half slider orders, one the chicken parmesan and steak, 3 with each order. Both were excellent. We also shared a full order of Greek salad which was very good, and with the sliders was a full meal for two. Friends brought us there for the music, which was provided by the Aaron Nelson Project. A great band to dance to with a very wide range of music. They play every Friday and Saturday nights. We'll go again

“American Food”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Eli's has been around for a long time and still serving excellent American food. Eli's is famous for there sliders, however, the other food on the menu is also excellent. At Eli's you will always get large portions and usually take home a doggy bag.
If you arrive after 730 pm during the week you will be entertained with live music.
Eli's is a fun place.
