“NICE TO HAVE AN INTERESTING CUISINE IN WV”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

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, nor have we been able to take advantage of the musical performances, but my husband does travel through the area for work. He occasionally surprises me with orders "to go". They recognize him and always ask if they should pack the food in small containers so that they will fit in his cooler.

Make sure to try their freshly made green sauce, which I am guessing has a cabbage base. It is delicious.

Support this restaurant. You will be glad that you did.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

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 have pasta dishes and grill entrees, food and drink specials, and in the evenings, lots of musical entertainment! There is always great energy flowing at El Gran Sabor...great food, great staff, great atmosphere, great entertainment...you must visit! Go to their website for complete menu and entertainment schedule!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

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.

“Even the pickiest of eaters will be happy...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I am a super picky eater. Like seriously, I eat like a little kid and hate trying new things. I was very nervous about going here but let me tell you, I'm so happy that I tried it!! The food is amazing, fresh, and super tasty. The service is amazing... they make you feel right at home. It's my new favorite place to eat in Elkins, and it's always great to support local businesses. Try it... you won't be disappointed!

“Yummy for years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

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 of Elkins, and eat here several times a year.
