Nothing special to have here. Basic diner food, ok atmosphere, service was a little slow. My table was left u cleaned after asking twice if it could be wiped down.... Finally just did it myself. Probably would not go back.

Always liked Elena's for lunches and we decided to try them for breakfast. They make the BEST biscuits & gravy in the south. We even bought some to take home with us. FANTASTIC.

Comfort food go to place. Good food. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Did I mention attentive service (the owners are ALWAYS) there! This is our Sunday breakfast go to. Greek dishes are very good. Try the Greek Salad Gyro platter (Greek salad with gyro meat), a satisfying meal by itself.
