“Great food and prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The place does not look fancy on the outside, but very clean on the inside. The food selection was good and the prices were very reasonable. My husband had a 12 pizza for $6.35. It was full of sauce and real hot. The servers were all very pleasant. We would stop in again if in that area of town.

“Good home cookin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Only a mile or so from the airport. Hard to spot at night. A very retro place. 60s decor, but as nice and clean as you could want. I took the advice of other reviewers and got the fried chicken special. Great comfort food. Worth turning around for if you miss it.

“A great meal for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

When you sit at the counter at Elmer's, there is a 1954 picture of the restaurant in front of you. They didn't survive this long by trying to keep up with the latest competition. If you want good food at reasonable prices, this is the place to go. They don't waste money on remodeling and fancy decorations which is OK with me. Everything is clean and for good home cooking in the airport area, give Elmer's a try.

“A coffee shop that's a local institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The breakfast was AWESOME; huge portions, really tasty food, and very friendly, fast service. We didn't get a chance to have another meal there, but everyone told us about their fabulous lunch and dinner menu options. A great choice for casual dining, right on Montana Ave.
