Señor Tequila has enjoyed a long history in Tulsa. Since opening its doors in 1999 in midtown Tulsa, it has grown to three area locations: in Brookside at 3348 S. Peoria Ave. and in south Tulsa at 6973 E. 71st St. and 9999 S. Mingo Rd.

While Greater Tulsa has its fair share of Mexican restaurants to choose from (and many with “Tequila” in the name), Señor Tequila endeavors to separate itself from the competition with its authentic Mexican offerings, housemade sauces and health-conscious menu items.

The large menu features a variety of combination platters, burritos, enchiladas and fajitas.

It also offers gluten-free options and many vegetarian dishes, including vegetable enchiladas, guacamole tostadas and vegetable fajitas (Fajitas de Vegetales).

My friend and I chose to visit one of Señor Tequila’s south Tulsa locations in the Plaza del Sol shopping center at 101st Street and Mingo Road.

The first thing that I noticed when looking at the menu is how extensive it is. We both needed a few minutes to absorb it all.

I took that opportunity to order the Top Shelf Margarita, just one dollar more than the House Margarita and well worth it. Fair warning: they do not skimp on the tequila.
The menu offers many seafood options: salmon, shrimp, catfish.

I was drawn to the Fajitas del Mar due to its mixture of mahi-mahi, shrimp and scallops.

My friend ordered the Carnitas Michoacan, pork marinated in orange and spices complemented with the traditional Mexican sides: rice, beans, guacamole, lettuce and tortillas.

We also chose to order the Fiesta Platter, which offers a sampling of many of its appetizers: Chicken Nachos, Beef Taquitos, Chicken Quesadillas and Buffalo Wings.
The platter may cost $13, but it comes stacked high with food. A trend that I later found continued in our subsequent dishes.

The wings stood out as my favorite of the four items because of their tenderness.
The Fajitas del Mar also came loaded with items, particularly the large piece of mahi-mahi, which had a nice flavor and was cooked well so that it was not chewy or slimy as fish can sometimes be. The shrimp was also prepared well, though the scallops were a little chewy.

My friend’s Carnitas Michoacan came with very tender pork. Although, the orange flavor was not overly present, which I preferred, but for those wishing for a stronger orange flavor, they might be disappointed.

Señor Tequila opens at 11 a.m. seven days a week.
