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 some no longer in business.
So salsa and chips are a MUST. Today I ordered multiple meals to have for dinner and lunch tomorrow ( only negative of Oasis is hours 10-230 daily ( except Jan-April only Friday to Monday) so don't snooze). Garlic and cheese enchiladas absolutely delicious with hot beans, cool sour cream, fresh salad and salsa Verde that brings all the flavor together!
I eat every bite, every damn bit, it's just THAT good!
Mexican Pizza: what Taco Bell wishes they could come even close to, but nope, never. Oasis is AMAZING!
Finally roasted chicken burritos, but that's for lunch tomorrow.
Prediction: will be really good.

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 daily specials that are always unique & their own recipes & that's the twist they offer, Mexican with a twist! See you there!

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, though -- most of downtown Eureka Springs pretty much shuts down during icy weather.)

We'll be back.
