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

Positives: Very good guacamole, large portions Negatives: Mostly average food, disinterested service I can't say we're experts about Serapio's in El Reno but we have more than a little experience with the place. We've eaten here a number times across the years and always left satisfied. During a recent sight-seeing trip to El Reno we stopped for lunch. We arrived... 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.

Service was 5 stars prompt and courteous staff but the food wasn't too pleasant. Very clean establishment Salsa tasted like can tomatoes over-peppered and spiced, the cheese sauce I thought was white gravy tasted okay but again over-peppered and chips was old. Rice was good but over-peppered. The only food that was good was the taco...the meat was tasty and... More

We stopped by the other night for a Mexican meal. We ordered the chili relleno, tamale and fajitas. All of it looked and tasted like it have been reheated in the microwave. It was served way to fast to have been fresh made. The fajita meat (beef and chicken) were not even sizzling like they normally would be. The meat... More

I try to stop in here once a month for my fix of Mexican food. It's an open kitchen so you can see your food being made. It seems to me that the food is like home made. Very friendly staff and great food. Highly recommended!

We were traveling through OK on our way to TX. It was getting late and we found the listing on YELP with bad directions. We called and the owner answered and patiently gave excellent directions. I do not understand the negative reviews on service and treatment close to closing time. We were there until after the door was locked; were... More

So far this little restaurant has a whopping 7 reviews on Trip Advisor and two of them are negative. Those two must be from people who hate Mexican food, because Don Serapio's is a gem and the food is amazingly good. Tucked in what looks like an old Pizza Hut on a side road just off of Exit 125 on... More

We eat at Serapio's at least twice a month, and it is a 30+ mile drive for us, well worth it! The margarita's are good, but the Mexican been hits the spot. I love there burritos with chile verde, and the cheese sauce is always hot (temp) and especially good with the added onions. The chips are great because they... More
