“Elmer's <3”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We love Elmer's. Every time we have stopped at Elmer's we have yet to be disappointed. Ordering is always easy and everyday they have a special combination plate at a reduced price. There beef tacos are delicious along with a side of rice and beans. If you love green chill burritos this is the place to go. It was by far one of the most flavorful burritos I have had. They also have great salsa too.

“Great veggie taco and burrito”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

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

“After many years of being away, this is still the best”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

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 the best. The bean tostados are fabulous. The wet burritos (green or red) are wonderful. It's the greatest of the traditional taco shacks.

“Fish Tales”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

On the trail of the best fish taco, Elmer's is a winner. Their fish is generous and grilled, not breaded. A dollop of slaw and tastey tartar sauce complete the taco folded into two (why?) white corn tortillas. Get em before the high schoolers swarm the place at 11:40 a.m. on a weekday. While I prefer their Mexican fare, their "special" burger is a re-do of the old timey hamburger of the 60's with a price to match. Sit outside and watch the traffic--? well, maybe the view isn't perfect, but the frish tacos are by my standard some fo the best in the area.

“A must stop in the Phoenix/Chandler area for green chili”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

This place has the real deal for Mexican food and very inexpensive. Lunch specials are only $10 for 2 of any of 13 or so different meals. The green chili burrito was amazing. All tortillas were freshly made and the service was fantastic. The lemonade was perfectly sweetened and made with real lemon juice. We will definitely make Elmos a must-stop when visiting Chandler. To top off your meal, there are plenty of umbrella tables to enjoy your food outside in the beautiful Arizona weather, too.
