Incredible Latin Food!

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

My dad has the worst luck. Take him to a 5 star restaraunt and they will serve him the one bad meal they've ever made. Not at El Gran Sabor! He didn't have a complaint about the food! In fact he said the black beans were the best he has had. I've been here twice now, once with my husband... More

I have tried a couple of South American cuisines before, Brazilian and Argentinas. Both were average. Mexican food was always above-average for me, no matter which restaurant I go to. This Venezuelan Restraunt has beaten all my previous good memories with food in its category, an outstanding place in every possible aspect.

Nice choices that you can't find anywhere else in the area, but quality sometimes slips, depending upon the day. Very friendly atmosphere, plus separate bar in back, so noise in the dining area is not a problem.

My wife and I both love Mexican but this was our first time to enjoy a Venezuelan meal. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding and the prices were a great value! When we return to Elkins, El Gran Sabor will be on our Must Stop list.

Venezuelan food and it is good. This place offers a unique setting in the small town of Elkins West Virginia. Much more interesting than tacos so see the menu. It is located in a home on a side street. Parking is all on the street but that is not usually a problem. The flavors are delightful and not hot like... More
