I try to come here every time I'm in the Phoenix area. I had never had a red chili burrito until Elmers, they are amazing. I have also tried the adobada, the enchiladas and the salsa is fantastic as well!!

Fantastic authentic meal. It's authetic Mexican food to me, although some might consider it "Tex-Mex". Either way, it's better than anything I can get in my home state of Michigan. It's inexpensive and wonderful. I bought a little bit of everything and the mini-chimi's were the best! Check it out and try a little of everything.

I love being able to pop in here for lunch once in awhile when I am in this neighborhood, but do not go when the high school lets out for lunch. The line will literally be out the door. But, if you can get there early, they have amazing burrito specials. Everything I have ever tried here is delicious.

Apparently the best breakfast burrito places are on Arizona Ave. The one that I like was closed, so I saw this one and wandered in. It was great! The menu was simple, easy to navigate and the lady behind the counter was very helpful as well. The prices were very reasonable and the burrito was really good. You wouldn't think... More

This restaurant has been in Chandler for years and years and we finally decided to give it a try! Do yourself a favor and avoid lunchtime when school is in session. Elmer's sits right across the street from Chandler High School. It's total chaos during the school lunch hour! The food is cheap and good. I especially like that I... More

Tried the bean and cheese cone, machaca cone and strips. All were good. Strips are very different have shredded, but not melted cheese. I look forward to trying something from the breakfast menu.

We are visiting family here and stopped in for breakfast. We are here from south Texas and we massively impressed by the friendliest and service of Elmer's. Sadly places like this in Texas are not as welcoming to us gringos. 🙄 If you're staying anywhere near make a trip her for an amazing burrito or taco! We could have split... More

Not quite like I remember. Should of stopped at the strips and cheese which are still yummy but the burro left a pit of despair in my stomach

My sister resides in Chandler and told me about the food at Elmers. It certainly isn't a fancy place and has only a couple of tables to sit, but wow...the food is great. Best tacos I've had in years and the burros were amazing, too.

Thank Carol C
