“It's alway busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

It's been around for years and they have several locations around the city. They can handle the crowds so even if they are busy... they will take care of you.

“Great first time experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

First time to visit brick town and wanted something Mexican for lunch. We noticed probably more "locals" entering so we figured it couldn't be bad. We guessed exactly right!

Like the reviews before, homemade chips, salsa, and especially the queso were great. We both ordered from the lunch menu and found portion size to be more than adequate . The rice was not gummy and beans were much better than most Mexican restaurants.

Service was quick and efficient. Everything we ordered was hot and good. Nothing but good news from me. I can easily recommend this restaurant and would return when in the Bricktown area!

“I always come here first night when in town!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I grew up in OKC and this is the place I come for outstanding Mexican food; usually
the first night & the last night in town! No disappointment this night going with brother.
Wonderful margarita and Chelino's dinner. They serve wonderful queso and salsa with home made chips to start everything out right. Good service, great food. They have an outdoor space which now they've enclosed which will be nice in warmer weather (they have windows to open out there and enclosure will make for less street noise).
My brother always gets a sopapilla (too fattening) but they look awesome and he downed it. We both brought food 'home' and for me 'to the hotel.'

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We had a party of 4 adults and one toddler. Service was excellent. Chips and salsa immediately brought to table. Icy goblets of beer served with ice on rim. Food arrived timely and hot. Delicious meal. This is a annual must when in town!
