“Great Fish Tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

The $5.00 margaritas with nice, thick crispy chips are a good start. The salsa is a little spicy and very good. The grilled mahi fish tacos are excellent. Nice fresh enchiladas. The place is a little noisy for me, can't really conduct a conversation, but very popular with the young crowd. Parking in downtown Tulsa is always a problem.

“Crazy portions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

While we waited to be seated we saw the servings that others were getting. We decided to share since we had a late lunch and were not as hungry for dinner. The Tacos Al Carbon were perfect. We also elected to have the whole beans instead of the refried ones which had a lot of flavor. A cup of their tortilla soup was a pretty large portion and came with all the fixings (sour cream, cilantro, lime, etc) on the side to add. Wish we could have stayed a few more days to try some of the other menu options.

“Atmosphere makes the restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Met friends here for dinner one evening. Luckily nothing was happening downtown that evening so it wasn't exceptionally busy. It can be crazy down there when there is a concert or baseball game. Free parking is almost nonexistent. Coming alone I didn't want to walk far after dark, so I parked in the paid lot across the street.

This was my first time eating here. The food was good, but nothing spectacular and considering what you get, slightly overpriced. I've gotten the same if not better food at other Mexican restaurants in Tulsa.

The thing that makes up for the food is the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant. It's an old redone building. They kept the uniqueness of the building intact and worked with it. Sitting on the patio on the roof would be really cool and have a great view.

Overall, a good experience and I'd eat here again.
