Live Music every wed. and Fri night's nice relaxed atmosphere. You can check there website to see who is playing. The drink prices could be better but overall nice place to chill for the evening.

This is an awesome ethnic restaurant in otherwise American Elkins. The building is beautiful, smaller rooms with interesting paint. I loved the artwork. The menu was more Latin American than just Venezuelan. The Venezuelan soup was authentic and savory. The dishes were all excellent. The wait staff, unfortunately, reached across our group to serve the drinks and dishes. By taking... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant, both at it's old location and at the newer one. The owners are always friendly and food is consistently good. The architectural details are gorgeous and they have created a fun venue to serve their delicious, plentiful food. My husband and I don't live nearby and don't get to visit as often as we'd like,...

There is a reason El Gran Sabor is rated #1...because it probably is! Wonderful Venezuela food prepared fresh, served with a smile at a reasonable price...what could be better? Love to visit in nice weather when we can sit out in the enclosed patio area. I love the chicken cachaca with Latin rice and black beans on the side. They... More

First time visiting this place. Excellent food, fresh and plenty of it. Great flavors. Prices are excellent, especially considering the quality and quantity of the food. Location is in an older home with steps. Not sure if there is a ramp for accessibility.

The food is amazing, fresh, and super tasty. The service is amazing... they make you feel right at home. It's my new... More

We love this restaurant. The quality is always consistent, and the dishes are so interesting. A nice change in Elkins from standard American food. Very reasonably priced, and a good place to take guests - leisurely and quiet. If you want more excitement, eat in the bar area in the back with live music often. We live within 35 miles... More

Ate lunch on outdoor patio on a Friday afternoon. Food was very reasonably priced, portions were more than adequate and the food was very good. Our waitress was attentive and service was pretty quick. This restaurant is located in an old house and has lots of character. Will certainly eat here again when back in town.

I had a really tasty meal here (soup, cachapa, beans and rice) - it was among the best of my three week vacation during which I had many great meals. The difference was that the other great meals set me back at least $30 - the one here was $15. Great service, too ... highly recommend!
