It was over a year ago that Elsa’s co-owner Jason Hemmert signed a lease to take over the old Buffalo Wild Wings Space in the Springboro shopping and now it’s finally time to start pouring the Bad Juans. For those not familiar- Simple, pure and lethal. This is for the heavy hitters who like to get down to business and gulp ’em down. They are however served with a tiny straw and a lime wedge for those who like to sip these slowly and savor the experience.
We prefer ours frozen and flavored!
While the layout in the 4500 square foot space hasn’t really changed much, accommodations have been made for Covid-19, with less seating, plexiglass dividers between tables and staffs in masks were evident when I visited. This sixth Elsa’s location is heavy on the tv’s, with 32 sets hung all around the restaurant.
We started our meal with some chile con queso and chips and loaded tater tots. Their salsa is pretty mild, so be sure and ask for a little hot sauce or their green chile jalapeno sauce.
The menu represents a lot of the traditional Elsa’s fare- taco’s, burrito’s, quesadillas and fajita’s.
New on this menu – Bowls. Veggie , Buffalo and fajita, which include you choice of Mexican rice or cilantro lime rice, black beans shredded lettuce, cheese and more. And unlike some Elsa’s – no burgers on this menu.
But you will find over a dozen chicken wing choices from smokey bbq, buffalo garlic, to “I’m on fire ready to die” and you have your choice of breading or no breading as well as the option to choose to order all drums or all flaps for a slight upcharge.
You can also order Pedro’s Pizzas in 10″ or 14″ thin crust- make your own selecting from over 20 ingredients or select one of their specialties like the Buffalo chicken pizza or the chicken BLT ranch.
