Although the enchiladas were great, the chips were stale and the beans were not seasoned at all. Great salsa, very nice staff.

Let me start off with the positive, the salsa was great. Outstanding. Unfortunately the salsa came with generic Tostitos styled round chips. My dish was good, if not outstanding. There were two items on the specialty menu that sounded great, but they were unfortunately out of and I am let down that I didn't get to try them. Maybe next... More

I ordered the daily special which was a sweet potato and black bean burrito if I remember correctly. It was prepared as we chatted with the owner. The food was delicious! YUM!

I am from Texas and I LOVE my Mexican food. I also love this place. It is not your Tex-Mex or typical Mexican food. It is more healthier version...and fresher version. If you are looking for favor and home-cooked Mexican type food, this is your place. And if you want a bargain...you have come to the right place. They will... More

This is very different Mexican food. If you are looking for authentic Mexican or TeX Mex. Look elsewhere. The salsa is a salsa Verde which is fresh and not too bad but no kick to it. Chips look to be tostidas. I had a jumbo taco which was small on a small corn tortilla. Not too bad but not great.... More

I first visited this restaurant on a first date with my husband. The green salsa was amazing and we went back every time we were in town. The food is amazing and now that they've moved to a slightly larger location, there is more space to move around. I had to go gluten free three years ago and the chef... More

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 back... 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.
