The food here was good. I noticed several locals eating here, many of them in SDC costumes. That tells one that the food must be decent. The place isn't fancy but the food was nice. I had some spicy steak dish and it was delicious. If you want real Mexican grub, this is your place.

What a disappointment! I loved Elenita's, especially the one in Hollister. When we saw that it was closed we drove into Branson and the Elenita's there was closed too. Both buildings have for sale signs so it doesn't look like it's just a seasonal closing.

I ordered chimichanga to go as I was a bit tired and wanted to go to my hotel and eat. Price for meal was average and I was excited for Mexican food, then I took first bite and nearly gagged. It was the worst tasting chimichanga I have ever bit into. It was greasy and just plain nasty. Will definitely... More

Eleneta's is a great stop if your in the mood for Mexican food. Their prices are reasonable and portion sizes are large. If you like tamales, theirs are some of the best.

We wouldn't have gone here, but found it on Tripadvisor. It was a nice little place. The food was great and you get way more than you could ever eat! The place was clean and had good service. Who could ask for more?

While it was one of those authentic mexican restaurants where the menu is in spanish and the servers are all hispanic (where they usually have the best food), our guy kind of ignored us after we got our food. We had to yell to get his attention so we could get the check 20 minutes after we'd finished our meal.... More

We stopped in here on a whim for a Margarita and food. The margarita was so-so but the food was excellent. For starters, they make nachos the way they are supposed to be made. Each chip is topped individually. The salsa and chips were excellent too. Our table of 8 people thoroughly enjoyed all of their food.
