This quaint Venezuelan restaurant is a hidden gem in Elkins. The food is awesome - as is the atmosphere! A "must visit" restaurant if you are traveling to Elkins.

This place is amazing!! The restaurant is in an old house. Love the decor. The food is very good, we ordered the grilled chicken cachapa, made with a handmade corn cake. This place offers a Venezuela menu and serves authentic Latin food. There is also occasional live music offered here on the weekends.

We went with a large and somewhat rowdy group. The staff handled it well. The service was great. The food was delicious. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely return. The squash soup alone is worth the trip.

We really enjoyed our dinner at El Gran Sabor. We had empanadas, arepas, and cachapa. The pork cachapa was wonderful. All 4 of us rated it best thing ordered. Empanadas we're 2nd. The green sauce was also amazing. Highly recommend!

It's been a long time since I tried food here. The menu was much larger than before. I had the Cuban Sandwich and it was delicious. Very tasty. French fries were the best I have had anywhere...crunchy. Very reasonable prices.

This place offers a combination of Venezuelan, Cuban and Mexican cuisine. The portions were humongous but not very tasteful. Service was slow, but the servers were nice. Overall, I would say it's an OK place to go in Elkins.

My husband and I traveled to Elkins for our anniversary and stopped here for lunch. It was recommended to us and I'm so glad we stopped. You won't be disappointed! It was delicious!

I called a week ahead to reserve a table for 10. We were so eager to experience this restaurant as my sister-in-law is from Venezuela. When I arrived, I was greeted by a young woman who stated she had "lost" our reservation and didn't know if we could have a table. We waited for a table for nearly 30 minutes... More

Have been going to El Gran for 10 years. Food is great, atmosphere is awesome, love the music it is so entertaining. The owners are a "power duo", so talented and charismatic. If you are lucky you will hear Rob play some saxophone.
