Went with friends and were lucky enough to get a table on the roof. It was a nice evening for a margarita and some Mexican food, service was great, food was good and the margaritas were wonderful. I will go back again soon.

The food was great - the chips were delicious and never-ending along with the salsa. Guacamole was very good. I got vegan fajitas and they were excellent. Service was really good as well. I would recommend to anyone visiting Tulsa.

We stopped in before an event at the BOK and it was delicious! Carne asada tacos were fantastic and the service was great.

We have dined here twice before a show at the Brady Theater. The location is super convenient and we enjoy the food. This time I had the combo meal with chicken enchilada and chicken taco. My husband had the tamales. His were so stinking good!...More
