The Elusive Turkey Restaurant and Bar

The original Elusive Turkey was located on Broadway Street and closed during the pandemic. It has now been re-opened at 218 N. Main St. in Winnsboro. The owners of the Elusive Turkey, Ron and Dana McGlone have truly transformed the building into a very welcoming and fun place with a true hometown vibe. They are passionate about providing the best and most unique food offerings with friendly and welcoming service. Ron and Dana are from Winnsboro and truly appreciate the special place they call home. They recognize the value of close friendships and support from the community that is hard to find in bigger cities. The theme song from Cheers, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”, came to mind as he shared his feelings. Good thing there is a very long bar in the restaurant to accommodate both regulars and first timers.
