Very good food, nice people!

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... read 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".

That's all I have to say, it's AWESOME! !! Had the chicken Chipotle enchilada, the salsa Verde is amazing. Try this place, it's truly a great place with awesome staff.

From the moment walking into this small establishment we were entertained by the friendly faces, creative wall decor, and local menu. The food was great and simple. We were very pleased leaving and enjoyed our experience.

Tucked away down a staircase and very small, but don't turn away! Walking in you feel like you are in someone's home dining room. We felt totally at home. First off, homemade salsa is super good and sweet tea is to die for! Husband & I ordered the cheese & onion enchiladas and son got the loaded nachos. OMG! Everything... More

I was in Eureka Springs on a very chilly fall day and was chatting with a shop owner when I asked for a restaurant recommendation. "Well, I woudn't recommend this place to just ANYONE," she said,"But you seem like you can appreciate it." And I did. Oasis is hidden on one of Eureka Springs' staircases between two streets, and it... More
