It has been over 10 years since we last ate at the Elite Cafe. It was remodeled in 2003. The outside looks the same but inside was pretty bland. The food however was very good. Wife had the hamburger sliders with onion rings. I had...More

Fun place to eat with a bit of history to it. Have been to it in the 90s and again in the 2000s. Good burgers and fries and "blue drinks"

Recommended by friends. Good Chicken fried steak. Service was excellent and the sides were very, very good. Wedge salad was interesting. Nice place to stop if you are passing through.

Had the chicken fried steak for lunch and it was a huge plate of food. The history of the place is interesting. Pretty good but not great.

The Elite is a Waco landmark and it had been a few years since my last visit. There have been extensive renovations and there is great curb and eye appeal but the food just didn't survive the taste test for me. I had a sirloin...More

We waited a long time to go here after it was revamped because we kept hearing bad reviews from people and friends. However, we always saw cars in the parking lot. We should have listed to our friends. The service was really poor, and the...More
