Great food! They are famous for the Puffy Tacos, but these come on a flour tortilla, so not for the Gluten free eater. The regular corn tacos are tasty! The tacos came with a choice of two sides, and I got sweet potatoes and corn on the cob, without the aoli.

For a lunch meal, I was surprised at how much food came on the plate! Great price for all that food! The order taker was very knowledgable about the food prep and ingredients. Everyone we talked to in downtown Tulsa recommended this place for at least one meal, if not multiples.

The food was good, atmosphere was fun and service was quick! there is a mini wrestling ring in the restaurant and I think it would be fun to see someone use it.

We went here for lunch and had a nice lunch but the one bench chair was taped and had I not had a recommendation to go to this place I would have probably walked out. All of the food was good and the salsa was incredible. They had a lot of food that was different from the standard Mexican fare. I had a burrito that had polenta inside it. That was really good. I would go back again. Would like to see them update the place a little.

This place has an extensive array of vegetarian options which is unique for a restaurant around this town. The service is very friendly also in particular when served by a sweet young lady named Zahava. It was a lovely evening and the best experience when we had her as a server. The margarita was the best in town made with fresh grapefruit, lime, and orange juices and jalapeno (or maybe was habanero?) infused tequila. Go taste it for yourself! They also have a great Mezcal margarita that I enjoy there, learning not many places provide this option, especially in Mexican restaurants. They have a special corn called Elote served on the cob which was also a delightful surprise when I finally tried it the last visit. This place is now on my rotation of yummy frequent local dining spots!

We're from Australia and made a special trip to Tulsa to come back and have PUFFY TACOS!! They were just as good as the last time. The prices are great. Can't wait to come back next year!

Puffy tacos really nice. Meal comes with lots of rice and black beans. Have to ask for chips salsa they don't offer. Prices good for food. Too expensive for margarita.
