I think they're not sure if they want to be a bar or a restaurant. Food is passable large portions. Service was just average. Seem to take a little long to get the food out and they weren't busy

We love the food, the service is good and they always seem to accommodate a large group with no problems.

Had a meal with family. Not quite what I was expecting for Mexican food. Of course I am from California. But okay. Salsa was really weird -- tasted like ketcup.

My son and I stopped by for lunch one day. We were greeted by the Owner to seat us. Our server was nice and took care of us.

There are 5 Elsas's restaurants, 4 of them in the Dayton OH area. So when we moved to the Tampa area we were excited to find this one here in Lutz. Really good Margaritas and food. Bill, the manager, bends over backward to keep guests happy and coming back. So many styles of Mexican food are around to choose from... More

This was another restaurant that I researched before our trip to Lutz, FL. It was close to my son's new house. My wife and I had the Blue Juan (Margarita). I had the Breast of Chicken sandwich (I usually opt for any type of chicken sandwich), It was plentiful and at a great price.

Wanted to try a new place. Unfortunately, Elsa's won't be a place I will visit again. The shredded beef tasted boiled and bland. The refried beans had no flavor except maybe a little like dish water. Chips aren't homemade which I always expect at a Mexican restaurant. My son said the steak on his tacos was not very good.

Waited over 30min for my food and watched other get theirs when I ordered before them. Food was great and drinks were great. Again, service was TERRIBLE. A member of my party ordered a sweat tea ND finally got up and got it himself!!! The waitress also had a bad attitude. She wasn't like the tattoo on her arm ,"Jazzy".

Thank gator0178
