Really enjoyed the Ruby Margarita, but the best deal was the regular margaritas for $2, what a deal. They do have an outside eating along... More

My husband and I tried Red Elephant recently. The hostess and our server were very friendly. We tried two of the specialty pizzas, the meat lovers and the Santa Fe. Both were delicious although I thought the crust on the Santa Fe was better which surprised me as I as expecting the same on both. The 2-4-1 beers were nice... More

My s/o and I are steadily making our way through the list of specialty pizzas accompanied by 2 dollar mugs of margarita. We've never been disappointed yet, and I tell all my friends about this place. Highly recommended for a casual night out

She kept... More

Boiled peanuts for an app that was not only good...but what a great offering...we are in the south after all. So why 1 star? The worst service ever. After we got our food... More
