New Tres Amigos Mexican Grill Serves up Monstrous Fajitas

By on August 5, 2011

Judging by the number of Mexican restaurants in Tulsa I would have to say it might be one of Tulsa’s favorite types of foods. Maybe it’s the ability to share flavorful food with a friend that makes this food so great. It may seem hard to differentiate between the many Mexican restaurants around, but Tres Amigos Mexican Grill & Cantina has come on the scene with class, style and good, reasonably priced food, they are different.

We ordered the monstrous Fajitas El Patron ($12.99), which is a feast for one or two people (if you decide to share). Fajita El Patron comes with grilled chicken, steak, shrimp and a few full ribs with mixed vegetables and a baked potato filled with chorizo and cheese, providing a bang of flavor on the side. Just look at the picture above,  the sizzling plate was huge and piled high. The rib meat was still on the bone and tender. The first two I ate right off the bone, the third one I pulled the meat off and made a pork taco. I picked out all the shrimp and ate them as I made chicken and beef tacos with the homemade blue corn tortillas. Two notable things that made these fajitas great where the seasoning and the lack of grease that I have encountered at other Mexican restaurants. Next time I think I’ll try the Nachos El Patron ($6.75)

To accompany our dish we also ordered one of their skinny margaritas. If you love margaritas, or if you like to show off your drinking skills, you might want to order Tres Amigos mega margarita (at least that’s want I’m calling it), a 72 ounce drink that will tower over your table (reminds me of the “Das Boot” 72 oz. beer from Seigi’s). The perfect party drink or challenge between you and a  friend that thinks they can out drink you. If that sounds like fun to you I recommend ordering, one Fajita El Patron and a 72 ounce margarita to share between two or even three people.

My wife ordered the chicken enchiladas suizas ($7.99). It is three enchiladas with cheese, shredded chicken and green or red sauce,  A dish that I noticed was on several tables. I did not get to try her dish, but she had no complaints and ate almost everything.

Tulsa’s newest Mexican restaurant, Tres Amigos, is servicing up fresh Mexican food you’re sure to fall in love with. Offering a wide variety of dishes from traditional Mexican to less traditional favorites, there is something for everyone on the menu, they even have a vegetarian menu.

The interior of Tres Amigos is worth checking out! There is so much detail put into the flooring, booths and bar area that you would think you were in a fine dining Mexican restaurant. However, not to worry, the prices do not reflect the beautiful interior.

    Thanks for the great review! I just looked at a photo of the menu. At first I was appalled because the first item on the “Traditional Mexican Dishes” is “Gringo Steak”. Then I noticed that they really do have some traditional items that I have been searching for for years and never found in Tulsa. Most noteworthy is Mole Poblano. That’s a delicious sauce with about 30 ingredients that takes hours to make. It’s served over chicken. It was invented about 1800 but has deep roots in Aztec cuisine. They also have mole pipian, made of ground pumpkin seeds (as in Casa Frida), also over chicken.

    My husband and I ate here about 3 weeks or so ago. I have the chicken moleladas. I think that’s what they were called. The mole was pretty good but really rich and sweet, a little two sweet for me. He had their Rock bowl and it was pretty darn cool. Not to mention a great idea and presentation! Their margs are amazing as well and we’ll be returning very soon! Service was top notch.
