The service here is amazing old-fashioned, make-you-feel-welcome Latino hospitality. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive, filling our beverages several times as we waited for all our party to arrive. I had steak fajita fixings without the tortilla (have to go GF), and it...More

The guacamole was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. I had the wet burrito which was very good and my girlfriend had the chicken spinach burrito that she also enjoyed.Prices were very inexpensive and I would certainly go back.

This is our second visit to El Rio Verde. The area and building where it is located is questionable at best. The food is outstanding. We had the wet burrito this time and they were great. Wish this place was in Atlanta where we are...More

Lunch at El Rio Verde is easy to do in a very short time. The service is good and food comes quickly. The guacamole is a little hot for me, but all my companions loved it.

I'm from out of town and was a bit surprised at location as it felt a bit strange pulling into parking. Then I see bars on the windows and a security guard. My concerns ended there! The staff was warm and welcoming, the open seating...More

Very good food. Not the same taste as most mexican places. But real authentic and prices are great. Off the beaten path in a sketchy hood tho.

Very good "hole in the wall" Mexican place in a sketchy part of town. Food was fresh and a little different from the norm, but probably not deserving of best Mexican place in Tulsa. Service was good; ambiance, not so much. Price was very reasonable....More
