The salsa was totally lacking in chunks of tomato, onion or anything else. It was more like a puree. Chips were warm when they came out but cooled off quickly and a little less tasty. The mini super burrito was not as good as the...More

I don't come here for the food, I come here to get wasted. If you've had a bad day, a bad Juan will melt that stress right away! 2 is a good limit.

Approaching Elsa's, its definitely a hole in the wall. But the food is worth waiting for. We had the chimi's, fajita burrito, and quesadillas. It was packed on Friday night, but the servers were very good. Definitely going back again!!

The food here is decent, but you should really go here for the Bad Juan margaritas! We celebrate everyone's 21st birthday here.

My fiance & I love the margaritas at the Elsa's in Centerville. The wait staff, management and "regulars" are absolutely incredible. They always treat you like family. The Mexican food is pretty decent, but the wings & pizza are the best. If you are looking...More
