Smitty's... A family tradition since 1934


When you ask someone in Elyria what they know about Smitty's, they will more than likely tell you we have a great burger! Smitty's has been serving the Elyria community with food and good times since Mr. George Smith started the business 75 years ago.

Since that time the business has only exchanged hands a few times but it has always been kept a family affair. Dick and Lottie Spinks operated the business for over twenty years; after that their daughter owned it; and now our family, Steve and Karen Frank with their daughter Stephanie, have kept the tradition going since 1992.

So what makes Smitty's a place you need to visit? Let us tell you!

Smitty's offers a great menu with a burger - The Smitty Burger - that "blows the buns off the competition" according to a 1995 competition hosted by the Elyria Chronicle Telegram.

In addition to this great burger, we offer sandwiches, wraps, fries, soups and salads every day along with dinner combos and daily specials.

You can order food to go or you can eat in. Come and see us and enjoy our fantastic dining room where family and friends are always welcome and the game is always on. If the weather is nice are patio is a great place to dine and hang out with a cold beverage. Our bar features three t.v.'s and a big screen along with seating at high top tables.

Smitty's is a great restaurant with a family atmosphere and the kind of place where everyone knows your name. Stop in and see us soon!
