I've been going to The Oasis since 1999 (excepting for period between closure of old location) and love it love it love it! Now I'm not that easy to please and even more so once you get over 5$ so I'm a cheap skate too! I've been pretty disappointed with some other local restaurants that were MUCH more expensive and...

This place is a tiny hole in the wall, a little cramped, and a little hard to find. The food was very good, but the service could have been better. Lots of people were getting their orders to go. Maybe we need to try that next time.

Wow is right! I love Mexican food & the Oasis is the place to get that flavor, but with a twist! Everything is made to order & is FRESH! The service is great (Ask for Nancy). A good variety of items, the atmosphere is charming/quaint, & it's easy to find! Look for the chalk signs on the sidewalk! They have... More

Best salsa in the known universe -- hands down. This place takes cash only -- kinda puzzling, but there you have it. (Be prepared when you go in.) A waitress named Nancy was especially kind to us, and gave us all kinds of great local info. The steps outside are steep, and probably best avoided during icy weather. (Don't worry,... More

We always eat our Mexican meal here at the Oasis. The proprietor is terrific, so friendly and helpful. Loves visiting with babies and small children. The food is fantastic! We all end up stuffing ourselves with too much food when we eat here, then come back for more.

Don't let the stairs deter you - it's worth a trip up/down the stairs. Ark (fresh, local)-Tex mix with imaginative vegetarian entrees. Fresh salsa verde. Owner/wait staff welcoming. Food arrived at the table in fairly short order. Classic rock and peace decor.

They call their food Ark-Mex which perfectly describes their dishes. We split the cheese/onion enchiladas which came with a salad and vegan beans. Delicious! The servings were generous, and the staff is a hoot! Nothing fancy on the inside, a bit of a walk either upstairs or downstairs, depending which way you are coming from. I'm sorry we waiting so...

My husband and I have been coming here for 17 years. The food is always delicious. The barbacoa enchiladas are amazing. The chips and green salsa are a special treat. We were able to purchase a quart of the green salsa to enjoy at our cabin later this week. Score!! Highly recommended for a filling and delicious lunch.
