Delicious home made food. You can't go wrong with Elke's. Sandwiches are delicious, the atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful. There are frozen takeout meals for when you don't want to cook. daily blue plate specials keeps you coming back! Amazing deserts, my favorite is the banana pudding.

Elke's is a great place for lunch. I've never been disappointed in any of the food I've ordered. They have wonderful soup, sandwiches, and salads. The board at the front announces the specials of the day. My personal favorites are the chicken salad sandwich and the chicken artichoke soup. There is an attached deli with great carry out items. It's... More

Consistently good. Exterior does not impress but worth a trip for the food. Yummy! Never see many men in there though. Seems to be a favorite for ladies who lunch.

We stopped in for lunch and had the pork sandwich special and a kids meal for my daughter (mac and cheese). I really liked the flavor combination of the sandwich and my 3 year old ate her whole plate

This is a friendly soup and sandwich type venue that has good food. It also makes great salads. The décor is on the feminine side and it's not uncommon to see several tables with 7 - 10 ladies enjoying themselves.

Elke makes her own bread and soups. I ordered the Reuben and was not disappointed. Fresh rye bread and the meat piled high. There are frozen takeout meals for when you don't want to cook. Their handmade salads are great, especially my favorite, broccoli salad. Plenty of seating and smiling staff makes this one of my favorite lunch places to... More

Delicious home made food. You can't go wrong with Elke's. The reuben is AMAZING, truly the best we've had. I don't know anyone that has tried Elke's and not loved the food. Simple but done right and always tastes great.

Sandwiches are delicious, the atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful. Don't feel like a sandwich, try one of their temptingly delicious daily soups like Carrot Bisque or Butternut Pear. Nothing top off your meal like some amazing Texas Chocolate Pecan cake, mmm, mmm, Good!
