The trio of salsa's was absolutely delicious! I would have been content with only chips and salsa for my meal! I tried the spinach enchilada with papas and beans - very good. The location is in Bricktown which can be busy at night and weekends. I had no trouble securing a table mid-afternoon on a... read more

I was on business in Oklahoma City and this restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel. The food was amazing! We got to the restaurant before 6:00 p.m. and they were having Happy Hour. They had really good margaritas for $2.99!! They serve chips and salsa and we ordered a side of guacamole. It was really good. For dinner... More

The Mexican food here is the best I have found in OKC. There are a number of things I order and they have always been very good. The atmosphere is delightful and the staff is very friendly.

The homemade soft corn tortillas are to die for. The one in Bricktown doesn't make them, so we only go to the Memorial Road location. They also have several salsas to choose from. You just have to ask. The food deal from 3:00-6:00 (Mon-Thurs, I think?) is the best. You get any 2 meals from the lunch menu except the... More

Was expecting average and got excellent food! They had 3 levels of hot sauce. The hottest is the best.

Although in a nice building and the decor is unusual enough to remark on (yea, that's all the remark I'm gonna give it) the food was average but with one exception: the green salsa. That was outstanding. I had the enchilada majur, '3' stacked wrapped tortilla around...spiced hamburger and very little burger at that. Covered in a variety of sauces... More

Wife ordered Patron Tequilla margarita, told they did not carry it. Margarita was expensive and tasted like "house liquor" Staff was moving guest thru as though it were a factory. Refried beans burned, pork enchiladas tasted old. Menu was very long, (8 pages) Several items on menu duplicated. Stay away, tourist trap in Bricktown.

This restaurant has a fun typical Mexican restaurant atmosphere. The service was very good and the food was enjoyable and portions were generous. We ordered a pitcher or margarita and they were drinkable but would not order them again - tasted like mixer only. I had two pint glasses and I am pretty sure there was little to no tequila.
