Real Mexican Food

Nice place to eat, food was great, service was great. I had a taco platter with beans and rice and couldn't eat it all. Salsa was very good not filled with cilantro and cheese dip tasted great also. I will go back for sure.

yes this WAS the best place for Mexican style food back in the day. But now the prices are way to high and the food is just ok.

For the prices they charge, one would expect a much better atmosphere. Looks like they are not keen on putting any profit back in the business. $7 for a small child's burrito is just excessive, but all of the dishes seemed overpriced. The food was so salty I could barely choke it down. At least our dogs enjoyed the leftovers.

It is Good. Not very good but better than average. The important thing is it is consistently and predictably always good.

This is a place where it is ALL delicious. The best fajita meat I have ever eaten is here and I'm so glad it's in my back yard! They also make their own margarita mix that is as good as any!! Great place to dine with friends or family!!

My husband and I make a trek to El Reno about every six weeks or so. It isn't far from our home, and we enjoy the drive just for lunch, dinner, or to run errands at a few of the shops in El Reno. Serapio's is our favorite place for food in El Reno, and not just because it is... More

Had dinner last night at Serapio's in El Reno. This was not our first visit and as usual, the food was great. The owner works in the restaurant and he is very attentive to his customers. Our server was ok, not great but not horrible either. If you go, try the Mexican Coke. This is Coke the way it was... More

This is very good Mexican food, not Tex-Mex or "modern" Mexican. You cannot compare this to Taco Bell or Taco Mayo - they are cheap fast food. If you want the good stuff, come to Serapio's.
