El Rio Verde remains one of Tulsa’s most beloved spots for Mexican cuisine. (If you’re not sure about it, the nearly 2,000 reviews on Google with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating should do the trick.) Start your meal off with one of many ‘botanas,’ or appetizers, running from chips and guacamole to shrimp, nachos or taquitos. Healthy diners can opt for the taco or fajita salads, while fans of the classics can make their own taco combos, with fillings like Cajun chicken, grilled shrimp, beef or fish. Burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas and mariscos round out the menu – or you can come early for the breakfast fare, served until 11 a.m. daily. 38 N. Trenton Ave., Tulsa; facebook.com/elrioverdetulsa
