I called a week ahead to reserve a table for 10. We were so eager to experience this restaurant as my sister-in-law is from Venezuela. When I arrived, I was greeted by a young woman who stated she had "lost" our reservation and didn't know if we could have a table. We waited for a table for nearly 30 minutes... More

Have been going to El Gran for 10 years. Food is great, atmosphere is awesome, love the music it is so entertaining. The owners are a "power duo", so talented and charismatic. If you are lucky you will hear Rob play some saxophone.

Wife and I were in the area to celebrate our anniversary and stopped by El Gran Sabor. Food was absolutely amazing. One of the best meals I have had. This will definitely be a stopping place should we be in the area again.

e get there and wait forever for the server. After getting our drink order, we wait yet another 5-10 minutes for that. In all that time, they never brought us chips and salsa. After 25 minutes, my friend goes to find out where our food, spoons, sugar for creamer, and waiter is, he comes out to tell us they have... More

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
