Food was good, average breakfast, staff were very friendly and attentive. Delivery of food was slow. Family restaurant
While I'm partial to the Elmo's in Carrboro for the old-mill atmosphere, the food and service at the Durham Elmo's is just as excellent. Highly recommend the greek grilled cheese with chicken!
Good food and excellent friendly service. Our server, Annie, was a joy and enhanced our dining experience. The variety of menu options make this a great choice.
This is a local restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is casual and family-friendly. The food is always good and the prices are reasonable. Granddaughter routinely has tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich while we enjoy typical diner food, burgers, salads, etc.

We can only comment on the breakfast their because thats what we had both times we visited. The food was cooked perfectly and served hot. The coffee is gourmet... More
I read the breakfast burrito was close to a breakfast burrito from the south west. Even though the burrito was good, it was nowhere near a classic southwest burrito. The service and the coffee was good though. I would recommend that you give Elmo's a visit.
