Wouldn't have known it was there, but local shop owner told us about it when we asked for a favorite for early lunch. Very unique and home owned. flavorful food. We enjoyed the homemade salsa, beef enchilada's and fish tacos. Only around 10 total 2 seat tables and 1 four top. Makes you feel like food prepared just for you.

The food was fantastic at this restaurant. I will NEVER go back if the lady that serves is still working there when I return. It just isn't worth it. Short breakdown - we arrived (family of 5), many tables available, only 2 tops, took my kids a bit to figure out where they wanted to sit. Everyone was ready to... More

Where do I begin, well my family and I arrived for lunch time and they had a few customers. I walked in and thought that they couldn't accommodate us as we were 9 and a baby in our group. The waitress was very nice and made space for all of us. Ordering can be chaotic with a large group but... More

This place is a hidden gem. Fresh salsa and wonderful food all around. This is Ark-Mex at its finest. Really small and very busy but worth the wait.

This is my all time favorite place for lunch in Eureka Springs. We have been going to ES for years and always look forward to eating at Oasis. Great food. Funky atmosphere. Love the fruit tea!

I honestly don't know how such a tiny, cluttered restaurant put out such delicious dishes so fast (and they've been ribbingly called the "SLO-asis"). Cook was a little overwhelmed but when I asked what was good our waitress easily joked that they'd already taken all the bad stuff off the menu! Unique, scrumptious tastes in our salad, beans, and enchiladas:... More

I begrudgingly give this review because I love this place and don't want it to be packed with tourist... Anyway the food is so fresh they get it from the local growers and it has a nice hippy vibe. Don't be in a hurry it's very casual and a fun place to eat. Vegi and vegan friendly. A great Eureka... More

You guys, this place is seriously a s***hole on the inside. We walked in and I instantly started to panic. Old yellowing posters and flyers everywhere, the tables that no matter how much you clean them they still look dirty, and a dust plant above our table. The plant literally was cloaked in an inch of dust just waiting to... More

This place is small, but perfect for lunch for 2. They can do gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan. The staff is friendly, funny, and funky. AND THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL!!! Curried eggplant enchiladas. Sweet potato and black bean enchiladas. Fresh mole. Homemade salsa from fresh, locally grown veggies. Recommended on the menu? Anything that catches your eye...it's all... More
