Dawn Painter said, \u201cWe also have a new spicy chicken sandwich.\u201d\r\n\r\nBilly Painter added, \u201cWe just have the chopped beef brisket on Fridays and Saturdays but we have the pulled pork BBQ every day we are open.\u201d\r\n\r\nThis is not fast food in the tradition of the national chain restaurants. \u201cThis is quality food made fresh," said Dawn. "Sometimes we get a little backed up but quality food is worth it.\u201d\r\n\r\nLocated at the end of the Alderson Memorial Bridge on the Monroe County side of Alderson in the Bridgewalk Shops building, Elisa\u2019s Eatery is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
