When I first moved to Tulsa Elote's was immediately one of my favorite places to eat. They offer locally sources dishes with an obvious intention of serving REAL food. However, after the last couple years I have noticed and significant decrease in quality. The food is not as tasty, the service is sloppy, the restaurant is dirty. What's going on... More

I have been to Elote several times and NEVER been disappointed. If you're looking for your usual taqueria, this isn't your place. The food is imaginative, fresh and local. The recipes are unique. The ingredients are locally sourced. The place is casual and funky, and the service is always wonderful. The prices are reasonable, and the bartender is great. On... More

Live a little! Fun atmosphere and extraordinary Mexican food. Puffy tacos are one of my favorites but the sweet corn tamales run a close 2nd. Don't dare leave without trying their churro. Great downtown hot spot to see and be seen.

Took family to eat while visiting Tulsa. Margaritas just yummy. Salsa and guacamole fresh, but not special. Everyone but husband had puffy tacos. Good. Husband not a big Mexican fan, so had chicken salad - was OK. Highlight was roasted corn on the cob with soecial sauce/seasoning. Good spot for a large party and fresh eats.

I went here with a co-worker on her recommendation. The restaurant is a small (slightly run-down) hole in the wall. Don't let the appearance fool you because the food is great! I wasn't a fan of their soup of the day but everything else was amazing. The highlight was the 7 layer dip. Can you say YUM?!?! The co-star was... More

Stopped in on Marathon weekend for lunch. A very fun & casual atmosphere. I ended up sitting at the bar for conversation with other patrons & the bartender. Had the puffy pork tacos and they were excellent, and you can not go wrong with their margaritas. The staff and bartender were awesome and made the lunch very enjoyable. I would... More

I had seen this on the hotel website I was staying and made sure I knew where it was before I checked in. A nice on block walk and I was there. I had the puffy tacos with beef, with a margarita and added a dollop (recommended by waitress since I was alone) of guacamole and white queso. My sides... More

We had the El Niño burrito and Tomatillo Avocado enchiladas. Great vegetarian options here as well as options for meat eaters! Enjoyed it!

Patio tables in the shade for couples or groups. Quest and Salmon fish tacos are always the best when down town. Sweet potatoes and Elote corn are the best sides. Plus there's gelato across the street if you can stomach dessert. You can't come just once.
