Elmer's Restaurant Review

: Part of a chain of restaurants grounded mostly in the Pacific Northwest, Elmer’s is a destination for reasonably priced meals and good comfort food. You will find classic options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with generous portions and a no-frills setting. Early birds should consider the Looking for the Sun omelet, a house favorite made with chipotle bacon, jack and cheddar cheeses and green onions then topped with salsa, avocado and sour cream. Other dishes include German pancakes and the Willamette Valley omelet with baby spinach, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, chicken apple sausage, Swiss cheese, tomatoes and chives. For lunch, choose from farmers market salads, seafood baskets, burgers or sandwiches like the grilled avocado, Swiss cheese and tomato combo. Try the rancher’s prime rib for dinner --- the meat is buried in rock salt before being slow-roasted. Indoor and outdoor seating are available.
