El Rancho Grande


On 11th Street just west of Utica is another Tulsa classic. El Rancho Grande has been serving genuine Tex-Mex in the same location since 1953. This is not your fancy gourmet Mexican food, this is authentic chili-con-carne, chedder cheese, a little greasy, fill up your belly Tex-Mex.

They have a good menu and a great lunch buffet. There was a time about 15 years ago when my son David was working for a Honda dealer on 11th street. We would meet and have lunch at Rancho Grande. It is a nice friendly family kind of place. They have a web site now. Visit them at El Rancho Grande.

You have a wonderfully wide selection of restaurants in Tulsa - nice to be able to ring the changes with different tastes for the palate.
I'm so boring when it comes to food. Good old English, French and Italian - I'm definitely not a spicey person.

Tulsa has lots of Hispanics and lots of good Mexican restaurants. The good ones are the little mom and pop places. El Rancho Grande has been in the same family for over 50 years.

I basically discovered Tex-Mex in North America and I like it. Although I can tell the difference between real Mexican food and Tex-Mex... it's a bit like Chinese food and Canadian/ Chinese food!
