Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday! Ordered a Swirl - Sangria and Frozen Margarita! Good but strong! Ordered off lunch options, Chimi- changa, with Shredded beef. Very good considering it looked different than expectations. Left stuffed in need of a nap! Lol!! Will be back!

Was absolutely blown away. The only thing better than the service was the food. They were busy but you couldn't tell it from the service. The food was awesome. Will be back next time I'm in Tulsa.

Try their lunch special before 4:00 pm and a margarita or beer to wash it down. Chips and salsa are good. The salsa has a little bite but if you want more then request their hot version. Service is good but there was a wait for the food after ordering. It's easy to fill up on the chips and salsa... More

They do not take reservations, but the wait is not long, and once you are at your table the service is fast. The workers are very friendly and helpful The food was delicious, although way too much to eat.

It's a nice upscale Mexican restaurant... nicely decorated and the food is as good as any other Mexican food I've had but what makes this 5 stars is the service. There is no idle time for the staff. They were constantly on the move, no standing around or hiding in the kitchen. What I loved most was to watch the... More

All the selections are authentic and super satisfying. You can't go wrong here and the service is amazing. Try the house margaritas - they will not disappoint. I like to order the combo plates to get a taste of a few different things every time I visit. The chile relleno is my favorite.

The restaurant is very clean and the food is served hot. Salsa is perfect and not too spicy so you can actually enjoy. I had the new seafood salad and it was fantastic! Crab, Shrimp, Scallops and a little cheese over lettuce. The lettuce is regular shredded lettuce but no dressing was needed because the flavor of the salad was... More

Visited during the NCAA tournament. The food is very good and the portions are huge! Service is fast and awesome! I have never seen a whole staff of servers move around so fast. I enjoyed watching them taking care of everyone so fast and so efficiently. Will definitely be back during future trips to Tulss.
