Best Mediterranean I've had in the entire country!

I've been going to Elia's since before they moved to their beautiful new building. I kind of miss the small, family-owned restaurant feel that it had before but the new location is spacious, beautiful, and very atmospheric. Their food is consistently amazing.

From Chicago visiting family and was very pleased with freshness and flavor of all salad and meats. The mixed grill was delicious. The houmas and tabouli was as fresh and favorable as we have ever had. Service was very good. Beer and wine only. We will be back for sure!

Absolutely freshest possible ingredients make for great food. Obviously family run, you cannot go wrong here. Falafel is as good if not better than NYC. The only song is I'd like to see the gyro meat come off a spit rather than prepackaged strips. Didn't matter through the tatziki was exceptional. Don't hesitate

Don't kid yourself - this is a Lebanese restaurant. Which is a good thing! All the food we've had there has been great. I'm partial to stuffed grape leaves and my wife loves the kibbie, so we order both and share. Hummus and tabouli are also must-haves. The portions are huge, so be prepared to take some home.

I Elia's on the the way to a baseball game and I was thinking that it looked interesting. I had the Shish Tawouk with a Lebanese side salad, it was amazing. My mom had the Grilled Salmon with a Lebanese salad and she said it was excellent. We had the vegetarian grape leaves for an appetizer and they were phenomenal.... More

Ate here with some locals while passing through and glad we did. The food was tasty and nicely prepared. The service was great. I now know why the people who live in the area eat here!

We took the advise here on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The waiters was very patient with us and walked us through the menu. The amount of food was more than enough and the price just made it a great deal. We are already planning our next visit. Even the kids found the menu desirable, a double plus.

This is a pretty good place in the South Bend area...certainly a great value as the entrees are inexpensive. After a couple mediocre experiences at other South Bend restaurants, we decided to order something that wasn't too 'exotic', so we settled on gyros. We were pleasantly surprised. Next time we go, I'll try falafel or something more mediterranean. Our server... More
