Elena’s is a family-run joint south of downtown Glendale that’s been serving the best Greek food in the neighborhood since the 1980’s. This is your spot for lentil soups, Greek salads, kebabs, and the best stuffed grape leaves you’ll probably ever uncontrollably put into your mouth. The space doesn’t exactly have a memorable atmosphere inside, but the traditional Greek music blasting over the loudspeaker and massive flatscreens airing MSNBC are thrilling touches.
