We've eaten here for years. The food is always fresh and authentic. Fresh sopallias made to order. Real beans and a variety of Mexican dishes. I had the old fashioned tacos, yummy. My husband had The Godfather, it's a must try. If you are in the area. Eat here.

Well it's not really that big and the parking is small, but the food is good. Traditional tex-mex style mexican food. Very attentive and fast service. Just a half block west of the only controlled traffic intersection in town! Very good chips served with medium spicy salsa and separate queso dip for each person. Give it a try!

What a great place. Amazing salsa. Really good guacamole. Had carne asada tacos. Good whole beans. Wish they had dark beer that would have put them over the top. Service was very good and they attended the table wonderfully. Price was very reasonable

We haven't had anything we haven't liked at el Mexicano! Everything has been to our liking. Food, chips, salsa, and queso are all good.

Nice little Mexican restaurant in a tiny North Oklahoma town. Solid Tex mex food. The usual range of combo plates. They do serve beer.

Being from San Antonio I am very selective on where I eat Mexican food. I would recommend this place. We have eaten there several times as our daughter and family lives in Stillwater. They have great food, eaten Tortilla Soup, Fish Tacos, fajitas, steak tacos. My daughter get the Godfather everytime we go. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

My brother lives close and he loves this place. I do to. Order a plate of fried Jalapenos. Everything I have tried was good, authentic and not greasy like some places.

El Mexicano, isn't your typical small town Mexican place. Their food tends to be more authentic than most I've been to. It's well worth the trip to Perkins and the White Queso is a must get.

Thank Chuck L
