this restaurant may look a little worn around the edges, but you will not be disappointed! vegans, in particular, will find some of the most delicious dishes to be found anywhere! the food is pretty cheap, but the quality and the service are always outstanding. highly recommend!

The food is fantastic. I had a salad with chicken. The salad was green and fresh and the chicken was tasty. My husband had a beef chimichanga and wow the seasoning on the beef was so yummy! It's a little fun and funky little place.

We tried a couple of places on State Street, but they were all packed (Saturday Night). So we tried out Oscar's instead and we left satisfied. The food was tasty (very good hot salsa). The chile rilleno was flavorful and the black beans were tasty (a rarity in so many Mexican restaurants). We left happy and full.

We ordered chicken taquitos and tacos with rice and beans. Two beers to drink. The food tasted good and the staff were friendly and helpful during our visit. The atmosphere was festive and comfortable. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

My daughter and I just had lunch here at it was amazing! We are already planning our next visit! We had the deluxe chicken salad and the mini burritos. The Pork chili verde was the best I've ever had.

Small, great food at reasonable prices. Parking limited close by. Good service. Mid range noise. Seating at tables, somewhat dark inside.

I have been coming to Oscar's for 15 years and fell in love with it .....back then....I kept hearing reviews recently from my friends and family whom have been loyal to this restaurant for longer then I've been going and they said it just isn't the same or now their food gives them stomachaches. In disbelief I had to try... More
