If Elmo's were a bar, it would be called Cheers and have a TV Series! I have eaten here numerous times. It is a Duke University place to see and be seen. They serve a full line of breakfast plates, burgers, sandwiches, salads and fries. I usually get one of their Tex-Mex specials and I have always been pleased. Great sweet tea. The service is fast and friendly. There offer breakfast, lunch and a Kid's menu all day. Here is a list of the typical daily special.
