“Elote food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

So many different opportunities to enjoy Elote food, from the restaurant, to the Cherry Street Market and other special events, to the Grub Truck. Always enjoy the food.

“This is Mexican not TexMex!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Puffy tacos are a must have. The fresh salsa is just that, no canned stuff. And the fresh guacamole is divine, "food of the gods". They do serve enchiladas on occasion, but they are not your TexMex things. All in all, good eats!

“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Great puffy tacos. We grabbed to go while at a downtown festival and it was awesome food. The place was packed including the bar. I would love to go back and have a chance to eat there.

“PDG Everything and just about the best margaritas in T-Town (get the extra shot).”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Pretty D*** Good Everything. Service, value, location, margaritas (just about the best you'll find in T-Town). Don't miss the jalepenos on the appetizers. Tulsa's best attempt to replicate the Portland sustainable food vibe.

Kids, Grandkids and Grandma all loved the food and had a good time.

Skip the flan, however.

“Excellent, Light Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

A refreshing contrast to the heavy, greasy offerings of some of Tulsa's other downtown Mexican restaurants. There are many choices for those watching their calories or fat intake and several vegetarian entrees. The restaurant has an informal setting in the same space as the former Nelson's Buffeteria, Tulsa's best-known restaurant for several decades. If you were to poll those who work and eat downtown on their favorite places to dine, you'd get more votes for Elote than anywhere else.
