Elva’s Mexican Restaurant

It is no big secret that I love to eat and I love to go out to eat but at an affordable price. I found a Mexican food place with a great buffet that is wonderful. The buffet is clean, ample and has enough variety to suit most any desire.

There is ample seating in the dining room at the entrance,

as well as in the rear dining room which is spacious enough to hold 100 people. The chandeliers are lovely, the room nice and new and there was space for a band should you want to rent the place for a special event.

While we were there, the restaurant started filling up with clientele.

Yes, those are chiles rellenos next to carne guisada. The food is delicious and can you believe chiles rellenos on a buffet? The price for the buffet is comparable to the price of ONE plate at the Mexican restaurant across the street. Needless to say, the restaurant across the street has lost a regular customer.


The owner enjoying all this success is Evelyn Salazar who is a Brownsville native. The restaurant has been in existence for 17 years but expanded recently causing an upsurge in business.

Look for this sign on Central Boulevard near the intersection of Central and Boca Chica in Brownsville…

Everybody else is… and telling their friends about it too.

Elva’s hours are 7 am to 10 pm Mon- Sat and Sunday 1 -5 p.m. The address is 1775 Central Blvd. Buffet items change regularly so check with them before you go if you want chiles rellenos. They do grilled barbecue and other meats one day and seafood another. They even have a breakfast buffet on the weekends with an omelette station. This was an absolutely wonderful discovery. Their phone number is 956-504-3371
