Welcome to El Flaco's

In the winter of 2011 Scott Stanley set out to bring South Elgin “his home town since 1963” a place where all generations could enjoy a great meal with a craft beer. Stanley's was a mainstay favorite of South Elgin until Scott wanted to try somthing new. 

Today he offers a Mexican American theme with his NEW restaurant where Stanley's called home for 14 years. 

El Flaco's offers Stanley's favorites and Mexican delights.

Thank you to all our loyal guests. 


Scott and Dawn

"We always give you the highest marks and we always recommend you to others. The food is great, I always like the beer choices, Dawn and Scott are great, and we look forward to the new look when you re-open and unveil. Also Sue really appreciates that she can get broccoli instead of chips or fries with her meal."
