Actually this place, locally referred to as "Ellie's" , is deservedly in the top five eating establishments of Ukiah. I base this on personal experience and the many positive responses I have received from others who have or do dine there. We often have guests coming from out of town. Ellie's has proven to be a safe bet everytime. Never... More

Ellie's is a long established reliable place to suit almost anyone.. It is a place where meat eaters mingle easily with vegetarians due to their ample supply of non meat and vegan options. The owner iis hands on and runs a tight crew who work hard to please the clientele. With options for large group seating as well as cozy... More

This is a great go to resturant but needs a menu change. At times selections are put together a little sloppy it would't take much to take a little time and step it up. Overall good food.

The menu hits all me needs - Burgers, Salads, Burritos, Pasta, as well as a fabulous breakfast. As a person of habit, I like using the counter for ordering dinner...not real keen on the waitress thing (-1dot). I understand I might be a minority on this one. The wonderful food trumps all!

Ellie's is our go-to restaurant in Ukiah for breakfast or lunch. Delicious fresh foods and a diverse variety (both veggie and non-veggie) at a very reasonable price. Parking can be a little tricky, so look for the separate lot across the street.

This is a staple in Ukiah. People who move away, come back to visit just to eat @ Ellie's. Really good selection of food. Veggie and non-veggies options. Good breakfasts, takeout, outside dining. Parking can be hard to find, but there is a parking lot for their customers just around the street (Freitas St, I believe). Very yummy stuff!

This is the place to eat if you want really good food at a reasonable price. It started out as a hot dog place with the best hot dogs anywhere. Then they expanded their menu and now everything there is delicious. The soups are excellent! It is a small place, but there is seating outside. The breakfast there is great... More

Much better choices in Ukiah. No attention to details. Dirty kitchen. Forget about their veggie options. Many times had meat show up in my veggie orders.

This is an Ukiah "institution" created by Ellie in late '70s. She has created a great place for locals to eat well for good value. Because of that I was very upset to experience surly rude service recently. The young lady with black hair and red streak doesn't represent the image Ellie has tried to create. This young lady doesn't... More

There's a reason Ellie's has been in business for so many years. I'm not vegetarian, but it is my favorite place for "fast food" takeout! Love their chicken wraps! Locals know it has the best quick meals!
