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

Love their "wet" burrito - lots of different meats available. Service is fast and friendly, even during lunch. Limited seating, but even at lunch the tables move relatively quickly.

If you love authentic Mexican food this is your place. It is a small business off of downtown, but it is big in flavor! They have so many wonderful items on the menu it was hard to choose. I ended up with a shrimp burrito "wet" style...meaning covered in red sauce with guac, sour cream, and cheese. It was amazing.... More

Got two smothered burritos for $14. Was authentic, delicious and well worth the drive. The area is a kinda rough would probably go back again in the daytime but we went at night and it was ok. Salsa is great. Friendly staff

If you like authentic Mexican food and don't mind going a bit out of the normal restaurant scene, try El Rio Verde just north and west of I-244 and Utica in Tulsa. Outstanding enchiladas and an excellent wet burrito. Service is fast and friendly. This is real Mexican cooking, not the Tex-Mex served in the chain restaurants. Also easy on... More

While in Tulsa for a Pearl Jam concert, we visited the El Rio Verde on the recommendation of a visiting scholar. The restaurant is very easy to find - about 2 minutes off of I-244. It's easy to see why this restaurant is so popular. There were families there, couples, businessmen, and lots of youngsters. We went for a chicken... More

From the Mexican candies, to the real sugar Mexican coke, to the "wet burritos" with any type of meat filling imaginable this place is the real deal. Do not let the neighbor hod fool you and there is sometimes a wait for the few tables. In my opinion one of the best kept secrets in TUlsa, but not such a... More

I read the reviews I talked with co-workers and everyone was claiming how good this place was. I guess I was expecting knock your socks off food and all I got was a burrito I wouldn't mind eating again. The salsa yes it was free but it was bad. I had the wet burrito and while it was good and... More
