Don Serapio's is another family owned restaurant gone bad. The tortilla chips tasted old and were cold. The Chicken Monterey was over cooked,dry and cold. . The rice was also cold tasted old. All in all, I wouldn't go there.

We're disappointed that you didn't love every bite of your meal, Michael. Our goal is always to use the freshest and best ingredients around, so I'll be sure to speak to the kitchen staff about what may have gone wrong. I hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

This is our "go to" place for great local food. A quick snack, lunch or an incredible dinner is always on the menu here. Must tries are the fajitas, enchiladas and the steak.

Mmmmm....mmmmm....slow down on your way through El Reno as you get your kicks on Route 66. You do not want to miss this place. Try the Chili burro if you dare. You'll need a wheel barrow to get out. Try the sautéed jalapeños if you like it spicy. Do stop. You won't be sorry.

Don Serapios has been around a long time and for good reason. The Chili Burro is beyond good and the cheese enchiladas are great. Very good salsa and, as mentioned, the queso is the best. Good service and good prices.

yes this WAS the best place for Mexican style food back in the day. But now the prices are way to high and the food is just ok.

For the prices they charge, one would expect a much better atmosphere. Looks like they are not keen on putting any profit back in the business. $7 for a small child's burrito is just excessive, but all of the dishes seemed overpriced. The food was so salty I could barely choke it down. At least our dogs enjoyed the leftovers.

Nice place to eat, food was great, service was great. I had a taco platter with beans and rice and couldn't eat it all. Salsa was very good not filled with cilantro and cheese dip tasted great also. I will go back for sure.

It is Good. Not very good but better than average. The important thing is it is consistently and predictably always good.
