“PDG Everything and just about the best margaritas in T-Town (get the extra shot).”
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”
Reviewed September 28, 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.

“Organic food should not include dirt.”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Our lunch included the recommended Chicken burrito as well as the avocado salad. In the salad we tasted then found small clods of dirt. Hey, I could live with that but 3 hours latter we both had GI issues (read between the words). NOT need. Proper food preparation was definitely lacking. Would be a huge issue for those attending a conference or meetings. Not Recommended.

“Met my husband for lunch.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I had wanted to eat here for a long while. I should have come sooner and more often. It is a casual unique place with great food.
