“Very cute place.I ate a pesto crêpe and a juliet's favorite.I think the crêpe was good, nothing too crazy. The batter itself could've been a little more flavourful and less chewy, and the filling could be a little bit more elaborate. But I liked that it was pink , it was very on brand with the place.It was fairly priced and had a lot of options to choose from. And the staff was very kind.Not sure I would 100% recommend but if you're in the area make sure to give it a try.”

“Olgas place is a land mark in the Elizabeth Port. To know Olga's is to know Elizabeth. Tucked away on a quiet one way street. Just on the other side of where the Turnpike divides the Frog Hollow Section of Elizabeth from the rest of the city.Olga has been one of the best places to enjoy. Recently remodeled and updated. This family owned an operated Restaurant/ Bar.Has been serving the best ?? Costa Rican Cusine for over 20 years. The menu is full of all sorts of great dishes. From a surf and turf to a Chifrijo. One of my personal favorites.White Rice covered in black beans with small pieces of Chicharon mixed in.( fried pork bits) topped with pico de gallo and sliced avocado. A hardy meal. My go to after a long day and an empty stomach.The prices are really reasonable.If you are just looking to have a good time and catch up with some friends.Olga's Place is that place. Where the music is playing just loud enough to make you dance in your seat. But not so loud where you can't enjoy the conversation with your date.You can sit at the bar or dinning room. TVs align the walls. You can catch the latest sporting event. Don't see the game you are looking for. Ask one of the friendly managers. They will be happy to look for it and put it on for you.Talking about the bar. They serve the latest and trendiest drinks. The bar tenders and wait staff are on point. Everyone is super friendly and go out of thier way to make you feel at home.The place is really busy on the weekends. As it has it share of local regulars and people who come from all over the state.There is plenty of parking on both sides of the building.If you know me and follow my post and reviews. You know I really enjoy my Cappuccinos. Ximena is one of the servers and makes it perfect every time. Ask for her to make your Cappuccino.You won't be disappointed.They have something going on every day of the week. Karaoke,Salsa Night and even a game night. You can enjoy singing along with the staff. They seem to know all the songs. Claudia will entertain you with her singing. Karla will charm you with her great smile and personality. You won't ever have to wait long. For your food or drink. I enjoy Thursday Nights when Kelly and Hariana are working. They make sure my order is right everytime.Olga's Place is trendy,hip yet they maintain a great family atmosphere.I just can't say enough about this place.I dont offer 5 stars often but this place is really that good. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook to stay connected with what's going on.I have quickly become a regular. I bet you might to. #ElizabethStrongParking: The Building has off street parking on both sides. On th weekends you mayhave to find parking on the streets.Kid-friendliness: Olga's has a family atmosphere and is kid friendly. On any given day. You will see families enjoying and eating at Olga's Place.”

I work as a paramedic, and we got busy, so I didn't make it to the restaurant until about 5 minutes to closing. That is when I realized I left my wallet back at the station. The guy who was there (I feel terrible that I didn't catch his name) told me it was fine and told me to take the food for free this time. I told him I would come back and pay the next day (which I did), but he was so super sweet about the whole situation. It was a tough night, and his kindness really made my evening. I will find out his name next time I go in and give a proper shout out.”

“For an authentic Italian experience, Panini Grill is a must! The servers are warm and friendly; and Christina is just perfection! She really made our dining experience memorable. My husband and I drove in from PA after watching Chef Peter’s reels on Instagram. We called two couples from Brooklyn and met them. There were parking spots all over (early Saturday night) but they do have valet parking, which is a big plus. Our food order was as follows: Italian Nachos (so good, especially with the cheese sauce on the side), fried calamari (I’m not a fan but my husband and everyone who ate them said they were good), Margherita Pizza (thin, crispy, delicious), another pizza with prosciutto, mushrooms, cheese & arugula (possibly the best pizza I’ve had in a really long time), baked clams (my friend said they were really good), chicken cutlet parm panini (Delish! The chicken cutlets were pounded, tender and delicious… for $15 you can eat for 2 days… their panini are huge), broccoli rabe panini that I heard was excellent, my husband had the special pasta dish of paccheri with burrata (I tried this and loved it), and finally, an order of cacio è pepe — the presentation of this is so fun, they play Mambo Italiano and we clapped and sang while Christina tossed the pasta in the flaming wheel of parmigiano and I think my friend’s husband ate it all, so it must’ve been good bc he’s not a big eater. It was a great night … and the music!! If you want to know what we listened to growing up in an Italian household, you’ll feel joy coming from the speakers of Panini Grill… classics like Felicità, Tu, O Saraceno, Sarà Perché Ti Amo I think were all songs I heard last night. What a blast from the past! They even had fun American music, but my favorites were the Italian tunes. What a great night! The 2 hour drive was so worth it and we will definitely be back, and both couples we were with said they were definitely going back. Panini Grill makes me wish I still lived in the neighborhood bc I’d be there a couple times a week! Great place! And before we walked out the door, my husband and I said to the patrons and staff “when you dine at Panini Grill, non ti preoccupare, tutt’ apposto!!! ?? Thanks for a terrific dinner and we will be back soon and I’m already thinking about catering! Yes! We are going to drive in to pick up trays of food to bring back to PA bc we want to support this exceptional business! Una cosa fantastica! Grazie mille.”

We were hungry so we decided to stay. They are very busy with delivery orders and neglect a bid the customer they have sitting there. We also had to wait for food and got our own drinks from the fridge. A customer from the next table got up and order at the counter and them to bring his order to the table. He got his before us. At least it was worth the wait. The baliadas were fenomenal. But next time maybe I will order instead.I went for lunch on Saturday maybe this contributed to us having to wait so long. We spend 10 dollars each. They place is kid friendly. Parking is tricky. You either park on the street or at the municipal parking right next to it. The place is wheelchair accessible.

“We had a good time, but be prepared to brush up on your spanish (or ask google translate for help)- the staff speaks mostly spanish. We luckily had spanish speakers in our group that helped us out.Our group got the pollo a la brasa (not pictured) and I learned that mixing the green sauce with ketchup is very tasty, but the garlic shrimp (camarones al ajillo) had my favorite taste/sauce. I personally liked the rice a lot but the french fries were also very nice.”

El Salvadoreño Restaurant 1128 Elizabeth Ave, Elizabeth Salvadoran • $$
1128 Elizabeth Ave, Elizabeth

“I can be a cynic. There are dishes and drinks that just require authenticity from their creators. Think sushi in a Cuban joint. Yes, it is a bias but I have been corrected.El Salvadoreño Restaurant in Elizabeth NJ serves a delicious cosmopolitan that would rival any proper bar in the tri-state area. Their pupusas are equally elevated by an ever so slightly toastiness on the outside and the sensual, melted decadence of cheese and beans in the middle. Their salsa and curtido are homemade, of course they are, and are home-country legit.It is heartwarming to see families enjoy an evening of great drinks and food while trying out the table-side karaoke that arrives and insists you take a turn at one of the mariachi classics.”

“It’s in the food court on the 2nd floor. Food was really good, I was so hungry and this was both tasty and filling. It wasn’t breathtakingly amazing but it wasn’t bad either. Just really good. The drinks are expensive like a bottle of water was $3. The food wasn’t cheap either, an average meal was $12 but it satisfied me. Also they have white rice it’s just not on display, you only need to ask.?”
