It’s no secret that there are a lot of Tex-Mex restaurants in the OKC metro but one of my favorites is San Marcos. I was first introduced to their food in 2002, one of my husbands’ co-workers took him there for lunch. A few days later, my husband thought I would enjoy their food as well. At this point I was pregnant and would eat anything spicy (which is interesting since the child now hates everything spicy). I really like their chips- the queso isn’t bad and even though I haven’t had it in a while, I remember their salsa being good as well.
Now if you’ve been reading me for a while, you know that once I find one thing to eat at a restaurant, I stick with it. I have been eating their chimichangas with sour cream sauce for ever but one night I got wild and tried their Pizzadilla De Lujo. Wow, was this good and different. Between 2 huge flour tortillas there was cheese, fajita beef, onions, peppers, and bacon. I really love this but you need to have a big appetite to eat it. Yes it does come with rice and beans. It was truly a different way to mix up pizza with Tex-Mex cooking. Their chimichangas are also good, but I have had better at Zarate’s in Edmond. I love their rice but really don’t care much for their beans, a bit too runny for me. At the end of the meal you do get a sopapilla, so try to leave some room.
The first location I visited was on the southside of OKC but they have expanded to NW OKC and I frequently visit the North Rockwell location. A few years ago they took over an old closed up Burger King and turned it into a colorful representation of a Spanish villa. I have always had good service at the locations I’ve visited and the food has always been good. I’m giving them 5 strips of bacon just for that pizzadilla.
