Don't waste your time, the food is mediocre at best. Service is friendly, but slow. All in all. Not worth the drive from Oklahoma City.

Don Serapio's is another family owned restaurant gone bad. The tortilla chips tasted old and were cold. The Chicken Monterey was over cooked,dry and cold. . The rice was also cold tasted old. All in all, I wouldn't go there.More

This is our "go to" place for great local food. A quick snack, lunch or an incredible dinner is always on the menu here. Must tries are the fajitas, enchiladas and the steak.

Don Serapios has been around a long time and for good reason. The Chili Burro is beyond good and the cheese enchiladas are great. Very good salsa and, as mentioned, the queso is the best. Good service and good prices.

For the prices they charge, one would expect a much better atmosphere. Looks like they are not keen on putting any profit back in the business. $7 for a small child's burrito is just excessive, but all of the dishes seemed overpriced. The food was...More

Nice place to eat, food was great, service was great. I had a taco platter with beans and rice and couldn't eat it all. Salsa was very good not filled with cilantro and cheese dip tasted great also. I will go back for sure.

It is Good. Not very good but better than average. The important thing is it is consistently and predictably always good.
