My husband and I were in the area to doing some hiking. We decided to try El Gran Sabor on our first night in Elkins. It was a very colorful dining experience in a older home, turned restaurant. We decided on something on the Venezuelan menu, because neither of had ever had it before. Mexican is the other option. We... More

Best food in Elkins bar none. I can't get enough of their sauces and empanadas! I also love the tostones. My kids always have good meal as well. My youngest digs in to the sides of rice and beans wholeheartedly. I have been on every trip to Elkins and am never disappointed. If you have kids the beat seating in... More

I went with a group of 9 with no reservation. They went out of their way to seat us as quickly as possible. Everyone loved their meals. The live music was an added bonus. We all had a great time and will return.

It's a small restaurant in what seems to be an old home that delivers some great Venezuelan food. The owner is charming and works to make a good time for all. Her husband adroitly manages the kitchen and delivers some great food - we had Cachapas along with beans and rice and a small salad. The dishes were full of... More

I eat here rather frequently (at least once a month) and love their food! From Cachapas to Pabellons and everything in between, the taste is exquisite! I highly recommend trying out the place at least once! Plus, they have live music in the back occasionally!

The owners, Rob and Derdlim Masten have become friends over the years. Derdlim handles the kitchen, Rob handles the music, with live music every Wed and Fri night. Rob also plays a mean sax! Pork cachapas are my personel favorite, but all of the Latino dishes I have tried where great. Very nice little meeting place for the locals!

I consistently enjoy the food at El Gran. Several great options on the menu. El Tigre Chicken is one of my favorites. Service can be inconsistent. If it is a quiet evening, and you get one of the long time servers, wonderful! If it is a music night, or there are large groups, dinner will be more leisurely. On the... More
