This is the first time I've ordered an omelette plate from this eatery. The omelette had spinach, bacon, onions and cheddar cheese. I also had a side of home fries and an English muffin with jelly. This plate was generous for the $10 I paid. The manager, Scott, was extremely nice and helpful. I would visit again, whenever I'm on this side of town.

The best breakfast spot in Bull City. Hands down. They have something for everyone, and it's all good. The customer service is top notch. The food is amazing. The place is very clean. And the line moves quick.

Got the biscuits and gravy. Very good but I’m picky with my biscuits. Service was great and interior was clean and well decorated. Much different than what I was expecting. Lots of locals present which is always a good sign.

Service was good. Its a nice diner. Good ambiance. I ordered the special shrimp and avacodo quiche and soup. My husband had the blue cheese burger. The food was okay...just okay...Its wasn't great or special. I had high expectations from all the good things I hear about this place but sadly I was not impressed enough to return.

Elmo's is a diner with great, consistent food and service. I have always had a very good experience there. They also have soy sausage, which is nice if you don't eat meat. Though I cannot recall her name, my server yesterday, April 16 around noon in the elevated seating area, was wonderful.

We love Elmo's! Good food and lots of options. Waitstaff are all really great. This location is our favorite but we also like the Carrboro location. Prices are reasonable and when it's not too busy, it's a great place to relax with family and friends.

Elmo's Diner somehow defies the old saying "speed, cost, quality: pick two". I don't understand how food that good comes out that fast and at a great price, but I'm not complaining. I usually get the vegetarian breakfast burrito, which I bet would silence meat eaters who complain of veg food not being filling. This past time I got blueberry pancakes with a side of soy sausage. They make their pancakes thinner than I usually like but they were some of the best I've ever had. I regret only getting two.

Loved the feel of this place! The gumbo special with the cornbread (YUM) was great! They had coloring for the kids and the restaurant has a pleasant background talking noise that helped me feel comfortable being there with them.
