Elvi’s Kitchen was opened in 1974 as a small take-out stand next to a large tree so that people could eat underneath it. Now the restaurant has seriously expanded, the tree has passed away (rest in peace, buddy) but still stands in the middle of the much expanded dining room. With wooden benches, bright colored tropical art, old turtle shells, and sand on the floor, the restaurant has an authentic feel. And the service is great. But I always go for the frozen Key Lime Pie. It is delicious. Tart with ginger snap crust and whip cream. You need to try it when you visit.
Many love the Mayan Buffet that they do on Friday nights. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been. I’m always a bit wary of buffets. But that’s just me, they always have a great crowd.
