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

I've dined here at this Don Serapio's over 25 times since its opening. Their cheese sauce is always tasty, very good salsa, great tortillas, and I usually eat a chicken taco salad or the taco platter. I don't do the chili sauce on my burritos or enchiladas, but that's just me. The guy who runs the place gives me the... More

Coming from Amarillo, I stopped here for lunch...what a mistake..especially after eating some very nice MX meals in TX and NM. My burrito was almost inedible...covered with some kind of chile sauce like one would put on hotdogs. This is the worst MX restaurant I have eaten at in a long time.

We went to Serapios on recommendation of friends. I had been there several years ago and based on that experience had not felt compelled to go back. Since our friends wanted to go we went. Our party consisted of two couples and a young grandmother with her two year old grandson. Closing time was 10:00 pm we arrived at 9:30.... More
