Wish I had taken a photo of my meal to add but it was so quickly devoured I didn't have time to think! I loved it and plan to come back any time we are in town. Be sure to get the puffy tacos and their spicy margarita (caliente)!

Being gluten free I always hear "you can have a salad" So tired of salads but their Get Yo Greens salad is AMAZING. I could have licked the plate. I really thought about it. So many choices and the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had nachos that we fought over and my kids loved the tacos. If I... More

There are few dining options in downtown Tulsa, especially on weekends. Elote is one of the few options, and a good one. The restaurant is much bigger than it appears from the street; it goes back a good way in a maze of rooms. Decor can best be described as dive. Unfinished concrete floors, low ceilings, pealing paint, etc. Complimentary... More

On a business trip, I have eaten here twice in the past few days. Both times were amazing. Guacamole is perfect, and chips and salsa are good but I wish they didn't have to throw out so much (because they're super generous with it, of course). The tortilla soup is a corny revelation compared to the mainly tomato-based versions I... More

When I first moved to Tulsa Elote's was immediately one of my favorite places to eat. They offer locally sources dishes with an obvious intention of serving REAL food. However, after the last couple years I have noticed and significant decrease in quality. The food is not as tasty, the service is sloppy, the restaurant is dirty. What's going on... More

I have been to Elote several times and NEVER been disappointed. If you're looking for your usual taqueria, this isn't your place. The food is imaginative, fresh and local. The recipes are unique. The ingredients are locally sourced. The place is casual and funky, and the service is always wonderful. The prices are reasonable, and the bartender is great. On... More

Live a little! Fun atmosphere and extraordinary Mexican food. Puffy tacos are one of my favorites but the sweet corn tamales run a close 2nd. Don't dare leave without trying their churro. Great downtown hot spot to see and be seen.

Took family to eat while visiting Tulsa. Margaritas just yummy. Salsa and guacamole fresh, but not special. Everyone but husband had puffy tacos. Good. Husband not a big Mexican fan, so had chicken salad - was OK. Highlight was roasted corn on the cob with soecial sauce/seasoning. Good spot for a large party and fresh eats.
