My sister told me that I would not find decent Mexican food in Tulsa. I now have evidence that she's wrong! This little hole-in-the-wall delivered on yummy Mexican food at a very reasonable price. I had the carnitas wet burrito; hubby had a two taco combo. Service was excellent. There was a steady stream of diners, so the word is out. Highly recommend.

Food and service were superb! The restaurant was a total surprise being in the middle of a neighborhood. We had the steak and carnita wet burritos and they were amazing. Don't skip the bowl of queso either, it was the best I've had. This will definitely become a regular stop.

Location made us weary of going here but when we pulled up people were standing outside in groups and lots of cars in the parking lot and along the street. Walked in thinking we were going to have to wait, but were seated immediately. Drinks came quickly and our orders taken. Food also arrived in a timely manner and tasted very good. Overall totally surprised! Will have to come back here when we return in a couple of weeks!!!

Great value!Great food!Great service!I wish their food was spicier, too mild for my taste, that's why I always have to ask for a "Chile Toreado" to make my food spicy.

Hands down fork up this place is the BEST! Been eating here since after its' conception when the word Super appeared before Wet Burrito. The salsa and chips isn't much to talk about but get the Wet Burrito! I advise knocking out the lettuce inside as this baby is delivered hot. Two people can eat one with a tea for twenty bucks minus gratuity. Remember jems are found amongst the rubble. If you haven't consumed one you haven't lived, bucket list worthy.

My spinach enchiladas were great and very filling, and I also liked the chips and queso. It's a cute little place, and service was good. My only minor complaint is that the cleaning solution they use is very potent and not appetizing, but you do get used to it.

This restaurant is owned by exceptional people! It is also one of the only places in Tulsa where you will see people in suits and ties, professional C-suite employees, and construction workers all having lunch under the same roof! I love going, everything they serve is exceptional, and you will be glad you went! 10/10 highly recommend.

People have recommended Rio Verde to us in the past, but we never went there until today. It's kind of hard to find (I had to Google it on a map), but when I got there I discovered it is very close to our house. It is small (you might have to call them in advance if you are planning to take a lot of people there at the same time), with the feel of an old Mexican cafe and very reasonable prices. The food was really, really good -- (alert: the queso is delicious but spicy!). Our waitress was pleasant and we received excellent service.Highly recommended!

Salsa and nachos were really good. Ordered torta. It was more than enough for one person. Came with a nice juicy pickled jalapeno.

THIS IS NOT REAL MEXICAN FOOD They make u pay a dollar for garbage chips and salsa, chips are not salted and u have to buy the cheese separately, the salsa is water and like a couple spoon fulls of salsa, not only that they brought out half full bowls of it. There was no salt or pepper or seasoning on anything and I almost walked out without paying it was so bad.

El Rio Verde is a little overhyped. There’s better Mexican food in Tulsa, with the exception of maybe the steak torta, which is delicious.

Our food was good, the service was good, nothing fancy. The prices are really reasonable. Three of us ate for less than $30, we all had water to drink. If we go again I will be trying something other than the wet burrito.

I ate at Rio Verde many years ago, back then the menus were in Spanish. View of the staff spoke English. The food was amazing. The service was fantastical. The prices are better than any in Tulsa. And nothing has changed. I took my wife because I wanted to show her the best authentic Mexican food in Tulsa. I was not disappointed. We got there around 1:30. It was very busy as expected. And we set at the bar. My advice is sit at the bar.

Don't let the facade of the place fool you. They make amazingly delicious food here. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. Prices are just right. I suggest you try the shrimp tacos.

The wet burrito with al pastor is definitely something to try as the meat is delicate and flavorful. It does get rather busy around lunch time and service becomes slower. Give their spicy sauce a try! The fried cheese (antojitos) was a bit much, but that is just me. Otherwise would definitely stop again.

The food was really good, I especially enjoyed the chicken quesadilla and the Carne Asada fries. I have heard a lot about other items on the menu and can't wait to try them out next time.

We arrived at a little before 12 noon and the place was packed ... for a very good reason. We got lucky and caught a table for two within in a minute after walking in. Two wet burritos (one chicken and one beef). It is what made them famous for a reason. They were very good! We will soon be back to try more of the menu.
