Elena's is a sweet find! We live in Pasadena, but go there regularly. The food is wonderful, and you get plenty. the service is also very good. Just a simple, family place, not fancy, but I highly recommend it.

Definitely one of my "go to" restaurants! The most tender and tasty chicken kabob I've ever had, and I have never been disappointed when I order it. I have tried most of the other kabobs which are very good, but there's something about their chicken...More

If you are looking to enjoy a leisurely meal in an upscale location, this is not the restaurant for you. If, instead, you are looking for plenty of good food served quickly in a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant, then you have found the right place. Highlights:...More
