Stopped based on reviews. We were very disappointed. Service was fast and friendly but our server really didn't come back to check on us. We just did not care for the taste of the food. The chicken used in the enchiladas & tacos was shredded...More

Found this place on strip Advisor and it didn't steer us wrong. The frozen margaritas were delicious and the food was great. We shared the Steven special with flour tortillas, queso, chips & salsa.

This place gives you plenty of food and you won't go away hungry. Good atmosphere. My nieces would rather eat here than anywhere. And you know how picky teenagers are. Close to interstate, gas and Walmart.

Worked hard all day and was ready for a good meal. This place hit the spot. My mixed fajitas were very good. Chips and salsa very good. Queso was thin but tastes great. We will be back.

El Jarocho has good food that's pleasing for all. The refried beans were particularly good. My kids enjoyed their tacos and burritos. My chile verde had the only miss. While the green sauce was one of the best I've had, the cuts of pork served...More

ZIP: 74426, PHONE: 918.473.0301. This place was at a highway exit where here was nothing more than a truck stop and this little Mexican restaurant across the street. The parking lot was full so, we thought we’d give it a try being that it couldn’t be too bad if there were so many cars. I honestly don't think I've ever had better authentic Mexican food than what I had here. The owner was on site that day and noted that they even everything fresh everyday. You can definitely tell the difference. If I travel back through this area again, I will absolutely stop here again! I had chicken enchiladas and they were so awesome that I literally cleaned my plate.
