4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The food was beyond amazing and especially alongside a WV-made craft beer. I was traveling through Elkins for work and tripadvisor recommended this place. It looked like they were going to have some live music, I wish I could have stayed all night. I am definately going back on my next trip.

We had lunch at EGS. Large portions of very flavorful food. The atmosphere is nice, it's in a old house. Service was very good and attentive. We would return.

While the atmosphere isn't much, the food is good. Located in a house on a residential street, with the owners kids running amok, the dining room is the preferred seating area. There is limited seating in a bar area, but it is located next to the kitchen. Service was friendly. Try the cachabas, A sweet corn pancake , grilled ,... More

This restaurant is a true gem! The dining rooms are quaint and cozy with photos from the Americas on the walls. And the food...delicious. My husband had the pork and pineapple quesadilla while I had the pork cachapa and both were delicious and ample size to share. We really appreciated the waitress' willingness to discuss food ingredients since my husband... More

El Gran Sabor specializes in Venezuelan cuisine and is provides a great meal and good prices. The Lunch Pork Cachapa (corn pancake of sorts) is my favorite and it includes a buttery rice that is tough to beat. Great place to grab lunch or enjoy the live entertainment and laid back atmosphere in the bar in back.

We found this restaurant in TripAdvisor and it had sparkling reviews. We gave it a shot and it delivered hard core! We had nachos grande for an appetizer. Followed up with the #5 on the Venezuelan menu. The plantains mixed perfectly with the rice and pork. The rest of the family ordered chimichangas and burritos. The dinners came with a... More

What a cool spot right in Elkins! Fun to try something different. They were playing beachy reggae tunes. Several craft beers available. Nachos were served cold which was weird to me. Cheese on them wasn't melted. Beans with my meal were really tasty but not warm enough. Had a shrimp cachapa entree which was very good. I would skip the... More

The food was so good! The portions are large, so you'll definitely leave full. I highly recommend the cachapas. They offer a variety of local West Virginia-brewed craft beers and a heavy pour of wine. Service was average. Live music most nights around the bar in the back of the house. I definitely recommend stopping here for a meal if... More
