We visited Eli's on a recent Saturday afternoon for lunch. Our meal choices were the Hot Turkey sandwich ($8.29); and the Half Fried Chicken ($9.59). The meals came with a choice of soup or salad so we tried both a cup of lemon rice soup and the dinner salad with creamy garlic dressing.
The lemon rice soup had a medium consistency and was well seasoned. The garlic dressing was one of the best we'd tasted and was on the sweet side.
Both the turkey and chicken meals were substantial servings and proved flavorful.
Eli's menu also features assorted breakfasts such as Golden Brown Oven Baked Large Apple Pancake ($11.95); Oven Baked German Pancake ($10.89); Crepes Suzette ($7.69); French Opera Crepes ($7.95); Bacon Waffle ($7.89); Gypsy Skillet ($7.95); Sonoma Skillet ($8.59); various omelets, Benedicts; French Toast; and other dishes.
