My companions were all students at local Tulsa University, and know a bargain eatery when they see one and Guapos was a favourite haunt of theirs. Great Mexican food served by Courtney, who was smiling at all times and genuinely tried to satisfy our requirements. Restaurant was purposefully not decorated and had large gaps in the decor but it was... More

We always want to try a local eating spot when we travel. This was suggested by the hotel. Thank you for the suggestion. It's funky and definitely local. And they have some great food. We do g drink but seems like everyone else does and no one left early, so I can only assume the drinks are good too. This... More

Had a great meal with my co-workers. This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. I had the enchilada combo. I was pleasantly surprised how much I loved the spinach enchiladas. A great choice if you are vegetarian or not fond of pork/red meat. Our waitress was really great. She was friendly, attentive, but not overly aggressive. I would... More

I love coming to El Guapo with big groups, they are always very accommodating and the service is great no matter how large your table. They offer lots of great choices for lunch, dinner, and drinks. Mexican food in Tulsa is generally pretty good and this place lives up to that. I've never had a bad experience in 4 years... More

I have eaten at El Guapo in downtown Tulsa on a few occasions and have always been very happy with the service and food. However, this was not the case on a recent Friday night when we went for dinner after work. The appetizer was fine, but dinner left quite a bit to be desired. I had to send my... More

Salsa was really good and the buffet style meal wasn't bad either. Good beer selection too. The building is a fun atmosphere too.

This restaurant sits in an area of downtown Tulsa known as the Blue Dome District which has a really great vibe and not to far from our hotel. The night we dined here they had closed down the side street that sits to the side of the restaurant for a really cool street party with live music. There was plenty... More

The portions were perfect! Not too much but plenty! It is a small place with a rooftop area. We are inside because we were real hungry and the rooftop was a 40 minute wait. Guacamole was to die for!
