I went to the Chelinos on May Ave today. I had selected this restaurant for dinner thinking it would be as good as the Bricktown location. It was a real let down. I ordered the beef, chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce. My son ordered a beef taco, beef tamales, a chicken and a cheese enchilada. The hamburger was not fully cooked. I have to say it was the worst Mexican food I have had in quite some time. The beef enchilada had in my opinion rotten tomatoes, with what appeared to be a black fungus on the tomato skin.The Mexican rice had no flavor and the rice was mushy as well. The refried beans were real watery too. I know how Mexican food should taste, because I am Mexican. It seems to me that perhaps the cooks have no pride in cooking real authentic Mexican style cuisine that Chelinos is famous for. Please, they need to know this. Maybe this comment can help them inprove the quality of the preparation of the food. The service was adequate, perhaps the staff and management should go to some of the other OKC Mexican style places and make some comparisons.

Every single one of my visits to Chelinos has had something go wrong.
They, the restaurant employees at every one I've ever eaten are smug and arrogant. And they have absolutely nothing to be arrogant about.
When I'm with friends and they want to go to Chelinos, I vote no. Lets try somewhere else.

Pros: Excellent quality food

Chelinos is one of the finer, higher quality Mexican restaurants in the Oklahoma City area. Their employees are outgoing, enthusiastic, and really seem to put their customers at the top of their list of priorities.

I first visited Chelinos in 2003 while looking for some good Mexican food. They offer great prices on meals, carry a large selection of beverages (including soft drinks, beers, and liquor), and have separate dining areas for both smoking and non-smoking customers.

As a tip -- I'd definitely recommend their beef enchiladas with a nice cup of Tecate beer (served in a mug with salt and lime!).

PROS: Great food, great prices
CONS: No outdoor seating for diners

This is the ORIGINAL Chelino's, y'all. Not the cheesy one in Bricktown. When they opened up years ago, this was the first location. Thusly, all the food and recipes are original here. The best Mexican food in OKC- no contest. The chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce are to die for. They also make their own salsa fresh each day. Mmmmmm....

The service was the best my husband & I have had in a long time. Got seated right away, no wait on the food, which was hot for a change.. the staff was just great, not only our server but anyone that came by the table asked if they could
