Love it!

We were introduced to the Oasis over 10 years ago and we keep coming back for the awesome food and friendly service. Love the new space! Still has the same vibe but it's more comfortable not being too packed in and it's a lot easier to get a table :) Loved Saturdays lunch so much we had to go... read more

My sister and I were taking a shortcut to the street below when we noticed this awesome smell coming from a place by the stairs. We walked in to a little diner, greeted by a super nice waitress, and had the best salsa verde, and enchiladas we've eaten! Everything was super fresh and even though it was near closing time,...

I had the special Buffalo Spinach Enchiladas, salsa verde with chips. DELICIOUS! Fresh and healthy, I loved everything about this place including the friendly service. We can't wait to return.

The Oasis has always been one of our favorite finds. It's "untypical tex mex". You won't find the premade microwave heat up dishes you get in most chain restaurants. Everything is freshly made and has a unique twist on old favorites and many new ones. Being that every order is made fresh it does take longer and they are getting... More

The quesadilla was great! The fresh green salsa was the BEST! The waitress said after the meal "now that wasn't any good was it?" I had to see if I could get her to return the empty plate and bring one even better, no luck. ;-) The ambience was like a really cool "hole in the wall", made you feel... More

I had read some wonderful reviews about this restaurant. However, when we were in Eureka Springs we couldn't find the place and they don't answer the phone number that is listed for this restaurant. We asked around and were told that the place had moved and they didn't' think that they had reopened. If this is the case someone isn't... More

This tiny little place is run by two people, the cook and the waitress. They are the friendliest folks and serve killer barbacoa enchilades. Actually all their enchilades are wonderful. They bill themselves as Ark-Mex and if you don't get their early you won't get a table. We'd eat lunch at 10 and drive two hundred miles out of our... More

If you can find this place, it is worth the visit. The lady who recommended it to us said that it was like eating in a closet, and she was correct. There were only 6 people eating when our group of four came in and they had to rearrange to make room (a group bigger than four would be problematic.)... More

We stopped in Oasis for lunch. Its a little tiny hole in the wall that offers what I would call Mexican Fusion, if you will. The flavors were incredible. I didn't know that a few taco shells, veggies and cheese could be made to taste so special. My dish was surrounded by a spring mix that was then drizzled with... More

We found this quaint little restaurant by accident. We loved it so much we went back two days in a row. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was great! We enjoyed meeting "Tiger".
