Aristeo Manipol

Just had my car washed including the undercarriage. Found out the the tire housing undersides we're not totally cleaned as I expected. Had to clean it myself.

Matt Andrews

Juan was a great dude! Called about getting my headlights cleared up and he squeezed me in even though he was busy and got my headlights looking like they don’t have 190k miles on them! Great service and great prices!

Nick Naber

Love the attention to detail! Highly recommend!

patty lizama

Good service..I'll come back soon

E. Carrillo

Two because the guy did a great job clearing out my headlights. Vacuumed carpets could have been better. Rims were barely scrubbed meaning there were still break dust on them. Floor mats still had shoe prints. Windows weren’t throughly cleaned. There were still water beating on the corners. All of these things should have been cleaned. Dash wasn’t wiped down. I shouldn’t have to tell the guys how to do their job. I payed for a mini detail. Definitely will NOT be going back after spending $110. Completely upset.

Debbie Lee

I recently took my car in to be cleaned after a huge thermos of coffee leaked/soaked the floor of my backseat... Juan explained the cleaning process and reassured me that they would do everything they could to get it properly cleaned. He even said that if, after a few days, I still had any concerns that I could come back and that they would shampoo it again for no additional charge. Great service all around! (Additionally, I had brought my car in a few months earlier to have a scratch cleaned/removed and they did a great job as well!!) Highly recommend!!

Cameron McRae

Very nice staff, quick wash. Upgraded wash is $17. $2 off any wash on Monday for men, $3 off Wednesday for women. They have much better attention to detail than most places I've been to in the area.

Karl Schneider

I always get good service here. They do a great job and clean the door jams, the hatchback door and all the places the other guys miss. When I ask then to clean a particular spot on the car they always honor my request with no problems. My car comes out looking great. Super friendly staff. They really care for their customers. A++

Pamella Moura

Amazing service and staff! My car was seriously spotless for an exterior and interior detail. Seriously, this is such a great spot with friendly services. Highly recommend!

I love this place!!! Hard workers! Definitely care for your vehicle & the owner is awesome as well! Thank you Juan & all of the great staff!! :)

Jewel K

I took my dads car in for a full detail and the vehicle was completed the same day! When I picked it up, it looked like a brand new car and I couldn’t recognize it at first because of what a great job they did to it. The staff is very friendly and was approached to be greeted immediately. Thank you Juan and staff for great and fast service!!

Jafrin Choudhury

Its all like a scam, they are highly rated in yelp, why? Because they give you a discount for good review most probably. The service i had was nothing like 5 star service, more like a amateurs at their starting....

Junhyun Bae

My favorite car wash in Chicago. I moved about 30-40 min away from this area and after trying multiple different car washes out by my new place, I still make the drive back to this location to get my car washed. Service is excellent!

Margarita Rivera

Very profesional. I was very satisfied with the service. Will come again.

miguel ruiz

I've been taking my car/truck to this car wash since 2013 whenever I get a chance to go to the northside. Juan and his employees go above and beyond. This time I decided to get the complete detail on my truck. Wow! I'm amazed how my truck looks brand new. Prior to the complete detail, I had mentioned to Juan about a couple of light scratches it had on the rear bumper. Him and his team where able to take care of it and you will never notice it ever being there. Will definitely keep coming back for the washes and complete detail.

Randall Moderhack

Good car wash - but SLOW to get through if there is a line.

Lance White

This car wash rates #1 in my opinion. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, clean establishment, and attention to details, always.

Kat Hall

I drive for Uber so I wash my car inside and out two times each week. Elston Car Wash deserves 10 stars! They are quick but not careless. The staff is courteous and professional; the owner Juan especially. Don’t waste your money on the River North, Lincoln Park places, come a little northwest and you will be glad you did! They also give Uber drivers $3 off the premier level car wash which is well worth it !!!

Alex Rodriguez

I have had my car for 6 years now and I have only taken it to Elston Car Wash. Juan and Edgar always do a great job. Customer service is great and they ALWAYS leave my car looking brand new I don’t live in the neighborhood but I always take the drive just to bring my car here. Hands down the best car wash in the city.

John Preston

A wonderful team does excellent service inside and out at a very reasonable price . This is a very busy location . Plan on being here 20 to 30 minutes as they do a complete detail of your car inside and outside even the trunk. The service …

Daisy Morelos

Everyone here is friendly. Great, fast service and Location is so convenient!

Daja Pratt

The costumer service is amazing, and the the Car wash is great! Highly Recommend!!

Luis Rodriguez

Just got my Range Rover sport detailed an looks better than the first day I bought it..

serdrena anderson

This is the absolute best car wash in Chicagoland!!!!! Awesome and timely service!!!!

Sergiu Tabirta

did full detail of my car, the guy’s did a great job, thank you.

Jim Anichini

Excellent service & great results. Very friendly, good prices, & reasonably quick work.

Cari Muzzy

This place seems like a good deal but unfortunately you get what you pay for. Last time I went here they missed an obvious spill on the front seat (leather so easy to wipe down). No huge deal so I went back again. Unfortunately they missed that same spill in the front seat and also some residue on the seat. I pulled over and had it cleaned off in 2 min. I won’t be returning as they routinely miss the mark on cleaning which is the whole point. I even pointed it out to someone before leaving and they said they’d tried (clearly not as I had it off with a towel and water in 2 min). Worth paying more elsewhere to get your car actually clean

Pat Reuter

Went there today and Juan, the owner, and his crew are real pros. Did a great job, very thorough and quick. Fair pricing. I will be back!

Jordan Anderson

Tremendous spot for quick and efficient car wash. Top notch!!

Paul McC.

Very professional & quick

Ellen Powers

Love this place. Both the premium wash & full detail are great options. Quick, efficient & great attention to detail. Go now, your car will thank you!

Alicia Rodriguez

Elston Hand Carwash LLC is one of the best car washes in the city I've been too. First of all the service is quick and they do a great job of hand detailing. They made my car look brand new after a car detailing and after a few car washes …

Krista Lio

Had a wonderful experience! Friendly staff and completed my car wash quickly. In addition, had a bunch of scratches on my car from hitting trash bins in alley. They buffed out for only $25 and looks brand new!!!

Deborah Prusiecki

Excellent! They detailed my old car (it was a mess) and it looked brand new! I also go for the hand washes. They do a great job. Very seldom is there much of a wait. This is my favorite place to go for a hand car wash!

Kimberly Paz

Juan the owner was fantastic! Made sure I understood what exactly was included in my car cleaning package , my first time there and I definitely will be returning the gentlemen cleaning were very fast ,and went above and beyond in the short time frame I was there!

Jorge Barraza

Had my vehicle get a full detailed turned out great. Awesome service thank you Elston carwash.

Amaris LaCour

I’ve been coming to Elston Car Wash for years and never had a problem with the service or workers. Great atmosphere and always very clean. I will drive out of my way to come here.

Catherine Grachek

I had a very unusual case of hydraulic oil being spilled all over my car. Juan and his team did a great job getting my car in the same day, washing it several times and doing a complete exterior detail on it - for probably much less $$ than the amount of time and effort that was truly put into it. Car looks brand new!! I couldn't be happier with the job done!

Vanessa Rodriguez

I’ve been here about three times and they do a great job!! I have A husky and she sheds and they make sure no more hair is in the car lol. Leaves my car looking brand new inside and out! Plus the staff is very nice!

Old Man Winter

Great car wash in the neighborhood. It is really busy on weekends so go early if you can. They do a good job.

Hieu Nn

Fast and clean

Stephanie soto

Great Service and quick delivery.

stephanie Aguilar Perez

Great Customer Service! Super detail-oriented. My car always leaves in impeccable condition. They have reasonable pricing, as well as offering prepaid packages! I definitely recommend 100%!

Kevin Wojtas

Went to Elston Hand Car Wash to get 6 month old tar removed from my truck. The tar was all over my truck and had solidified to practically concrete. Juan quoted me at $120 for removal of the tar, waxing of the entire truck, and underbody …

Angelo Castillo

Good place for a car wash, they are fast, prices are fair, employees are awesome.

Numan Jahangir

They Take their time and do a very good job. Better than classic / Riverview / quiroga. Courteous staff , excellent service. I got the 18.95$ premier wash.

sheena brown

Excellent service. I been going to Elston wash for a little over a year now and I have to say I LOVE it!! Early bird specials are amazing for the winter if you want to keep your paint up on your car you save a lot of money they get the JOB done!! The guys there are all nice

Francesca Beninato

If you want a great car wash, look no further. Honestly the best hand car wash in the city of Chicago! As person with a SUV, my car is no stranger to bugs, sand, dirt and dog hair; and these gentlemen are the only car wash that doesn’t over charge me or make a fuss over the extreme dirt covered condition of my truck! Elston Hand Car Wash, thank you!

Edna Flores

Excellent car was in and out. Needed my car buffed due to a scratch due to another car's paint, it came off.

Norma Rosado

Expensive and the workers don’t seem to care about your car. Never again!

David Navarro

Could find a lot better for cheaper around. Inside wasn’t done very well outside looked rushed. Just try to get you in and out.

Ivan Garcia

Only place I'll get my car washed. The team is great. The service is quick and the prices are competitive. If you drive uber and rack alot of dirt on the car this is the place to go!

Andrew Seelig

Good washes here. Honest staff.

sam klukas

One of the best car washes I’ve been to. Every time I go there the staff is great, they have a nice lounge area and they get the job done. I’ve been coming here for more then 3 years, I highly suggest it!

Nathan Revell

Better results than the other car detailing stores that charge 75% more! We got a full interior detail after the winter and his guys hustled and got it done that day and no joke our car looked absolutely brand new. My wife and I have gone to other, more expensive shops in both Chicago and other cities and this was by far the highest quality job and a much lower price. They found a loyal customer for sure.

Rafael S Lezcano

Very reliable and honest, great staff and service, very attentive to detail! Hand wash, avoids scratches with machines, plus by doing it by hand, there are no areas missed by machine! Personalized service, every corner is worked on. Chose engine wash and finish, great job. Carpets shampooed, leather interiors look brand new! Owner always checking on jobs! Highly recommended, shop around, pricing amazing! Thank you!

Satya Chavez

I scratched my car today pulling out of my driveway and it was devastating. So I went on Yelp to see which detailing service was highly rated. I feel so grateful to have found Elston Hand Car Wash. I drove in panicked and fortunately, the very friendly, accommodating and helpful owner Juan not only eased my stress, but he helped me clear up the scratches but he also detailed the entire car for me AND threw in an internal vacuum. Really great and clean waiting room with beverages and friendly company. Just so highly recommend this place!

Eric Florence

I’ve been coming to Elston wash since I moved to Chicago over two years ago. Time and time again, the level of service, attention to detail, and care for my vehicles is unparalleled. The team here takes extreme pride in their work and works hard. Often, there is a line out the door- so get here early! There are a lot of wash options on the menu so you can pick what’s right. No dirty brushes like the quickie drive through wash. This is a class act operation. It’s the only place I take my cars in Chicago.

Juan Regalado Miranda

Amazing service and great prices!!! Friendly Staff!!!

John Strasus

Although this Carwash in particular from what I hear is one of the best in Chicago, the way the staff is treated is unbelievable. I know a few guys that work/worked here and one thing they all say is the pay is ridiculous. 6/hr??? Really?? …

Victoria Di Franco

cost 18 dollars and they did a horrible job! spilled some soap in my trunk and they said they couldn’t clean it.

Maria Shelakhaeva

Juan and his friendly team made a miracle with our car. Crispy clean, it looks brand new! Excellent!!! Excellent!!! Excellent!!! Thank you so much or a great service, guys!

Jose Betancourt

been using Juan and his guys for years now, always do an amazing job! i literally go no where else!!

Jose Prado

Great service and very friendly staff.

Steven Preston

Elston's car washes and wonderful place to go. They can be Busy sometimes. They do a wonderful job at a good price. They offer discounts for over list and via. They also have a punch card system where if you go 9 times your 10th washes free

Jack Creager

I got an exterior detail here today. They did an incredible job and my black car which had many swirl marks and micro scratches looks like brand new paint. Exterior detail was Wash, Clay bar, buff, polish, and wax, as well as cleaning up the tires and wheels.

Jose Vallejo

The staff entering the place can do a better job being respectful and nice instead of yelling and talking to ppl as if they were kids. Overall great cleaning service

Antonio Cabrera

Attention to detail is lacking. Outside and inside wash is terrible. Dirt and grime was left on the vehicle. Not worth the money spent for a subpar service.

Sabino Mayen

Great fast and clean service! Will return

Ricardo Perez

Excellent service. I just filled my car wash punch card and can't wait to get my free way. Early bird specials are amazing.

vishal patel

Hard work speak by all the staff Awesome and reliable service.


They work hard to do the job you pay them for. At the end they give you time to look over your car to make sure all the little things you like done are taken care of. Well managed and do a really good job. I don't go anywhere else! !

Timothy Schmidt

These guys were able to remove about 12 years worth of built-up odor from my car. They have a very nice facility and friendly staff. They took good care of me.

Carly Tafolli

This is my new go-to carwash. They do a great job and are very friendly. The waiting area is very clean and comfortable and I love that you can choose your air freshener!

Maria Pabon

In general, they did a good job with the wash. There were a couple of spots inside where they could have done a better job but the price was right. I will go again

Chris Gonzales

I just came here this morning for a very much needed wash. My car had salt and road grime caked on it from the last week of extremely cold weather, driving through the snow and salt trucks passing me by. This is very close to my job so I thought I'd try them for their early bird special. What you immediately notice upon entering their shop is that the inside is climate controlled. I mean, real climate control. As I type this it's 11 degrees outside. As soon as you enter and they close the door behind it you the temperature inside has to be at least 70 degrees or warmer. This is perfect for both the customer and the crew washing the cars. Speaking of the crew, they were fast and thorough. I got the premier wash which is full wash of outside and in. I was in and out in about 10 mins or less. Their full detail is about $20 cheaper than other car washes near my home. Their waiting area is also climate controlled and has comfortable sofas, a TV and a recliner. Complimentary coffee is there and some snacks for purchase. I will be making this my new go to for car wash care and you should too.

Jennifer Oliva

Best hand car wash! I highly recommend

Jaime Figueroa

Got my car washed here before and it's been ok but today I got it washed and I was not happy with the outcome. After the car was washed it sat there fir about 10 minutes with water all over it then they finally get it to detail. I leave the place and start noticing the windows where all still with water spots on them and when I got home even the car was not wiped down properly. My fault for being in a rush and not checking before leaving. A $20 + tip car wash...I will not be returning here at all. Come to think of it they didn't even spray car freshener which is included...Elston Car!

Heather Frey

Busy Mom with a car that showed it, covered in candy, crumbs, dog hair and messy fingerprints. After leaving here, looks like I just drove it off the lot! Amazing work!!!

Milton Rivera

It's ok don't clean your car all the way

Pavlo Liushniak

Great service for cheap price. They also have a lot of discounts, related to the time and day you come. Like gentlemen day discount or early bird special, etc. Totally recommend them

Greg Benoit

Do not go to this place. I went in a couple of days ago for a Supreme Wash. When I came out, my passenger seat was stuck all the way forward and I can't get it to move back now. They must have yanked the hell out of it when they moved it forward to clean, and now the damn thing is jammed and I'm gonna have to bring it in for service. So pissed.

Joshua Schoenhardt

Highly recommend this place! Reasonable prices and the work is better quality than most hand car washes. Not only is the service great, but the team is quick about getting your car in and out without sacrificing quality. The only hand car wash I go to in the city now. A+++++

Ruojia Wan

I am a regular here. Would recommend to anyone who wants their cars hand washed carefully. I've been to other hand wash locations in Chicago but this one seems to be the only place that bothers to wipe off the water drops on your rear view mirrors. Nice work!

Omar Marchan

Really Enjoyed This Place They Were Very Fast Prices Moderate and the cashier that helped me out was very professional.

Aerica Parson

My favorite car wash. Excellent service all the way around.

Armando Roman

Need a complete detailed washed? Look no further! These gentlemen are top notch, one of the best (if not THEE best) car wash in the city. As a regular who always comes in, I’m always approached with professionalism & kind gestures. Their premier plus washes have been keeping my car look right all summer! However, I’m here to talk about their complete detailed car wash done the other day.. they went far beyond my expectations: engine was looking BRAND new, my leather seats shined brighter than when I first bought my vehicle, and the compartments in my car were fully vacuumed and cleaned. I personally had tar on my car (near my wheels) that wouldn’t come off, even after multiple car washes. The guys did a GREAT job removing all that substance from my car without ruining my paint. Overall, I feel in love with my car all over again thanks to the gentlemen at Elston’s car wash! P.s, These men are TRUSTWORTHY.. I left my girlfriend’s EXPENSIVE belt in the backseat of my car. I’d forgotten all about it, until I arrived to pickup my car. The box had been moved, but was put back in place & kept secured. HUGE POINTS!!

Bri Ingram

Great car wash! Love the early bird special :)

Ali Johnson

This place is the best! Always do a thorough interior & exterior cleaning! Great customer service as well! Fairly priced.

Sholom Strick

They do a really thorough job. Best car wash I’ve seen in Chicago yet.

Faiza Mistry

Did Not clean the car from the outside properly. Put the soap and literally just wiped it off. You could see streaks from the towels and dirt from Not properly washing it. On top of that the car was wet, open the door and water dripped …

Colette Robertson

I'm really glad I read some of the previous reviews and decided to try them a year ago. I've been going ever since. I usually wake up pretty early, even on weekends, and that's when I take my car in for a wash. My experience with weekend mornings is that there's hardly a wait, unless it's the winter season. Leave your keys in the car and go enjoy their complimentary coffee or watch whatever is playing on their TV in the lounge. Usually it's the news. I prefer to sit outside of the lounge and watch the cars getting washed. Everyone works pretty quickly but also well. For just an exterior wash on a mid-size, it's usually $7 or $8.

Maggie Ruiz

Second time coming here,The first time car seemed cleaned but the carpets didnt seem cleaned thoroughly,I brushed it off the first time but coming here again,It wasn't as clean,I got the Premium wash both times but this time the car inside looked like it was sprayed with something but not wiped ,so it look dirty and greasy and then the car seat smelled bad & I was in a hurry that as soon as I pulled out the driveway,I started realizing every detail which ,My car was cleaned before I came ,it did not look good after,The details or anything, Was dissapointed & probably would not come back. I usually keep my car clean ,But always like it extra clean and this just made it seemed dirty,Not satisfied.

Gary Vandenbroucke

Great service- fair price

Bryan Lucas

Got the premier car wash $28 and when I open my trunk filthy. Barely wiped down and armoraled the dash and doors. All around windows streaks and areas missed. I grew up going there but that will be the last $28 car wash worth $10 I get.

Jon Huber

Changing my review... my first experience was fantastic, but my second, not so much, so I guess it just depends on the staff... had to wipe down the interior again myself when I got home. Also, I paid $15 more to have the back seat shampoo’d and all they did was spray it a couple times, which is what they do anyway. Definitely missed some glaring spots that would have come out easily if they actually shampoo’d it. On the upside, they were very fast. I would have sacrificed some speed for quality though.

David C

This place is fantastic. The owner Juan, always goes the extra mile and is a treasure to the avondale community. I've been taking my car here for over 5 years and I can't reccomened it more highly. Two thumbs way up, these guys are the best.

Simone Famales

I was pleasantly and totally surprised at the wonderful job this car wash and employees, did. Why doesn't EVERYBODY downtown Chicago know about them? I'm going back again today. Thank you for such a great job.

jesus zuaznabar

Thats where I take my motorcycle to wash and they do a magnificent job.

Charles Jenkins

This place is the best car wash. Reasonable prices, friendly staff and quick service. The efficiency and dedication feels like you have stepped into the future.

Esmeralda Pena

Went in to get a car wash on my truck. First of all they didn’t offer the gentleman Monday discount (-$3.00) he offered a wax for my truck which I agreed, upon applying the wax he didn’t even bother to take off the tar on my truck. I asked why it was still on and he said it needed a “special” cleaning to be done and I had to pay extra. I ended up paying $82 dollars for wash and wax and my truck was still dirty inside and out. Terrible experience.

Breno Bisoni

Good place to wash your car, I'm not gonna lie. But they only take your vehicle for detail or mini detail whenever they feel like doing it. I called a few times before to see if they could do a mini detail which they say it's less than an hour to get done, and they always come up with an excuse. One time I even drove in front of the place and there was two cars getting washed and they said they couldn't do it. Why offer that option for clients then?

Shana Conner

I've had these guys detail two cars, my car and one of our company cars. The company car is a shared vehicle . Previous to that, it was the owner's car. He has three young children. His time driving it with the kids, plus miscellaneous people driving it and not being responsible for cleaning it meant that it was disgusting. It was really, really dirty and had an odor. I brought it in on a Thursday morning and it was ready for pick up at 4pm. I couldn't make it back to get it so they kept it overnight for me. When I got it Friday morning I was amazed at how clean it was. It's a seven year old car that's seen some hard use, so it's not pristine, but it was as close to pristine as humanly possible. I am very happy and intend to keep bringing all of our company vehicles here.

Vikram Khurana

Great customer service, very fast. Although can improve on some cleaning. Had a few spots unwashed

Juan A. Cano

Juan and Company never fail!! I've going there for years.

Tracie Brown

They did a great job. Had car exterior and mats cleaned. I will visit again.
