This place gives you plenty of food and you won't go away hungry. Good atmosphere. My nieces would rather eat here than anywhere. And you know how picky teenagers are. Close to interstate, gas and Walmart.

Stopped in for a quick dinner, the chips and salsa were good and service was friendly. Food was just average.

Worked hard all day and was ready for a good meal. This place hit the spot. My mixed fajitas were very good. Chips and salsa very good. Queso was thin but tastes great. We will be back.

El Jarocho has good food that's pleasing for all. The refried beans were particularly good. My kids enjoyed their tacos and burritos. My chile verde had the only miss. While the green sauce was one of the best I've had, the cuts of pork served were not very good. In fact, six of the chunks of meat were just pieces... More

I am from out of town. We had dinner here when we were in town, because if was a favorite of my brother in law's (who had just passed away). The food was delicious and the service was great. The server brought us fresh warm chips without us even asking. He made suggestions that were great. I loved the steak... More

We were staying at the hotel next door, and ate here one night while traveling through. Good food, cold beer, and great service. No wait on a Friday night. Would eat here again.

Great Mexican food, good servers - always a pleasure to eat here. Only downside would be they need to serve their food a little warmer.

ZIP: 74426, PHONE: 918.473.0301. This place was at a highway exit where here was nothing more than a truck stop and this little Mexican restaurant across the street. The parking lot was full so, we thought we’d give it a try being that it couldn’t be too bad if there were so many cars. I honestly don't think I've ever had better authentic Mexican food than what I had here. The owner was on site that day and noted that they even everything fresh everyday. You can definitely tell the difference. If I travel back through this area again, I will absolutely stop here again! I had chicken enchiladas and they were so awesome that I literally cleaned my plate.
