Tasty!

The decision to go here for lunch came after reading several reviews about how great this place is. The service was quick and attentive. The chips were too thick for me though as I prefer thinner chips. The salsa was very smooth and runny. I prefer it to have at least some substance to hold on to... read more

True Mexican cuisine, no tex-mex filler had the steak ranchero. Huge portion, great crunchy green peppers and soft tomatoes. Great flavor, beans were fresh and still intact. What a great surprise in Tulsa.

We just had a late lunch while heading to the airport. Great guacamole and salsa. The el pastor and carnitas tacos were outstanding. Also a great cheese enchilada. We will be back next time we are in Tulsa.

I really had my expectations high from reading all the glowing reviews. I got the wet burrito as everyone raved about and it was just OK. The fajita meat was sparse and many pieces were tough and chewy and not much meat. The chorizo in my husbands was very bland and lacked flavor. The table sauce was just bad! No... More

One of my favorite places to take out of town guests. The restaurant is definitely off the beaten path and would be hard to find if you weren't familiar with it. It cannot be seen from a main road. Food is excellent. Wet burritos are wonderful as are the veggie burritos. Very good tacos and guacamole. The chicken tortilla soup... More

My wife and I wanted Mexican food...not being local we turned to TripAdvisor for recommendations. El Rio Verde didn't disappoint with great food choices. We had salsa and guacamole to start with. The salsa is ok...not much to write about there. The guacamole is terrific with chunks of tomatoes and onions. I had the Wet Burrito with steak. It is... More

The atmosphere here is super fun and the food is amazing. It's cheap and low key, everyone we interacted with was very friendly. I would definitely come back
