We had driven all day on or way from TX to MN and decided to stop in Tulsa to rest at a downtown hotel. We asked hotel staff for a dinner recommendation, and they suggested El Guapo. It was such an excellent recommendation. The staff was friendly, the service was prompt, the margaritas were tasty (and strong) and the food... More

When we arrived at 6pm we were told there was a 2 hour wait, luckily we were meeting friends and had seats waiting on us. Staff was very friendly. Good food and good drinks. Would recommend to others

I give this place two thumbs up! Love when Mexican restaurants sell empenadas! Theirs are the bomb! Good chips and salsa, variety of drinks, and on good days & nights, patio seating! We have been to both locations: downtown and the 81st & Harvard one! Both are great!

Had the shrimp tacos and they were great. Some of the best I have had. The shrimp was fried very lightly and tasty. Chips and salsa was good too. The only thing that was not very good was the guacamole, it was very bland. Overall great place and looking forward to going back.

Had a great dinner on the roof top patio overlooking downtown Tulsa. The margaritas are top notch and the service is fantastic.

Food, atmosphere and service were all good. Nicely refurbished old building in the historic Blue Dome district, an area that seems to reemerging nicely after many years of leaner times. Walking distance from the Downtown Hyatt and the neighborhood seems safe. Not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, but found it to be above average.

Reagan, our server, did a great job. Very personable & attentive. The new rice bowl was delicious. Plenty for 2 meals. I love the chips, but the salsa is almost too spicy for a light-weight. Always a great atmosphere. The rooftop is worth the wait on nice days/evenings.

We go downtown to eat at least twice a week, this is usually one of the places we avoid. The food is just ok? Been here about 20 times and the food is ALWAYS cold when it comes out. Taco Tuesday is great though, 3 dollar beers and 1 dollar tacos all night. 3/5 dots
