We met another couple that had eaten at Elmer's before. Ordered a la carte to sample various items. It's easy to understand why they're a favorite because their food is the closest to traditional Mexican that we've had in years. We left full & satisfied....More

Great Authentic Mexican Food is hard to find, BUT don't look any further, Elmer's is true authentic. Tacos, tamales, sweet Tea, beans, rice, chips and salsa it's all good. Just like momma use to make. You won't be disappointed.

Huge portions, great prices, authentic Mexican food made from scratch! Atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but the food over shadows that-- or hey take your great food to-go! Elmer's Tacos is a favorite spot to grab lunch when we visit AZ.

Hole-in-the-wall feeling, modest, tasty food spot. Our new go-to for inexpensive but good food. Asada tacos good, cheese enchilada and chile relleno OK. Would do tacos again, the other not so much. Good salsa. We came in and the place was empty, 20 minutes later...More

Said no cheese, and there was a little on it. They need to be in touch with their vegan customers (:

Ok, so it doesn't have much in atmosphere. It's just across from the Chandler High School and in a neighborhood of pawn brokers and muffler shops. It's got no atmosphere, except for a wonderful staff that just love to serve. Despite all that, it's simply...More
