Diner food in the middle of nowhere! Great burgers, all you can eat catfish on Friday nights. Friendly service but not the fastest. The crossroads says Sand Flat so maybe there was once a little town there?

Burgers are made by hand no frozen meat. Cool location out in the country. On a nice day one can dine outside. Friendly staff.

Consistently great food, served in a comfortable hometown atmosphere. This is real small town diner food, but always done well. One of the best hamburgers you will ever eat!

Great home cooking and friendly service! My Dad who is 88 and a vegetarian regularly gets to go orders from Ells Place and they make him yummy potato, egg, cheese and vegetable breakfast tacos! And they also make the best grilled cheeses!

Ell's is one of those "gems" you always hope to find. They serve home cooked food that tastes like someone took a lot of care to prepare. Hamburgers to die for... delicious French fries ... pork chops fried just right served with green beans seasoned perfectly. Service is exceptional and very fast. Try it for breakfast too!!

I've eaten at Ells since it was the size of a snow cone shack. You cant beat their hamburgers. The Gene Autry is my favorite. My husband likes the Matt Dillon. Tater tots over fries.

Meet little spot out in the country. My wife and I ordered the regular Hamburger. The Hamburger was very good, but we have had better. The service was was very friendly and quick. I had Fries and my wife had Onion Rings. They both appeared to be frozen items. This is not a place I would drive another 25 miles... More
