Accidentally Found...Returned On Purpose

I accidentally stumbled upon this place when I was in Elkins for work one day. It was so great that I couldn't wait to take my wife back. So, we went a couple weeks later. She loved it too. All-around great place to eat. I would recommend the cachapa (and so would the servers). I've had pork and... read more

I will always love the food here! One of the best foods in town. If you look for something different here it is! But never ever are you disappointed in the food! Very much a family atmosphere!

Always greeted with a smile! Service is great! Food even better! Unique restaurant offering local musicians as well as guest bands performing frequently. Try a cachaupa, not sure of spelling! They have Big Timber Beer on Tap, a local brewery.

Loved the unique menu. Some old favorites plus lots of unique Venezuelan options. Beautiful old house setting. Recommend the grilled tilapia...spicy and very tasty.

Located in an old house (before 1900) a block off the main drag, this small restaurant offers wonderful Venezuelan food. The wine was reasonable and the waitstaff friendly and knowledgeable.

Tired of the same old food! El Gran Sabor has a different flair. Enjoy the black bean soup & the different dishes!

I wasn't sure Venezuelan cuisine would appeal to me, but my husband wanted to try it since it had such good reviews and we could walk to it from the Holiday Inn Express. Wow! The food was amazing! He got enchiladas from the Mexican side of the menu, and I tried the cachapa from the Venezuelan menu, after discussing it... More

Ordered the authentic Venezuelan dishes. Way too much food for one person. A little on the greasy and bland side for my liking. We ate outside on the patio, but the inside is quite nice.

I liked the unique menu offerings as well as traditional favorites. The steak was tough, the margarita was a mix, the sangria came in a tiny glass.
