With the belief that you can never have too many tacos or Mexican food, in general, here we go with Part 2 of the 5 best local taco shops around Greater OKC!

Birrieria Diaz | Bethany

6700 NW 39th Expressway, Bethany, OK

I, Malena Putnam, our chief storyteller and founder here at Yay Dude and Shay Wood, owner, Wood Insurance Agency, located in Bethany, can both vouch for the authentic mom & pop Mexican restaurant located in downtown Bethany. If you love homemade guac, hit it up with a nice salt rim beer before your main entree. Big menu, authentic Mexican options, fast service.

Open 7 days a week. 

Phone (405) 603-1304.

Alfredo’s | Yukon, Moore, Edmond

Alfredo’s has grown into four locations for a reason. It’s damn good Mexican food with an Italian-sounding name. Years ago I made sure to stop in there when I visited my client SWOSU in Weatherford, OK. Then I heard they’d expanded into the city (Yukon and Moore), and then finally it was in my neck of the woods in Edmond, so it’s been a staple of my family’s ever since. The enchilada plate is my favorite, but the quesadillas and street tacos are a close second.

Hours: Sunday – Thursday 11am – 9pm & Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm

Phone: (405) 285-2424

Green Chile Kitchen | Yukon

12 E. Main St., Yukon, OK

A hit on Route 66: Green Chile Kitchen. The first time I tried Green Chile was about 8 years ago and they had me from the first bite of queso. With a unique Tex-Mex modern menu like great stews, smothered burritos and taco salads, I recommend trying something different every time. Try their lunch menu from 11a to 2p, too.


Hours: Sunday –  Monday, Closed. Tues – Saturday, 11:10am – 8:00 pm.

Phone: (405) 265-4346

Revolucion | Midtown OKC

916 NW 6th St., OKC, OK 73106

Modernized Mexican & Tex Mex classics with a very cool vibe (with a literal neon sign that says “Don’t kill my vibe” and a really, really good margarita are in store at Revolucion. As in, come for the margaritas, and stay for the fish tacos and queso fundido. Trust me. 


Hours: Open daily, but hours vary so check their website.

Phone: (405) 606-6184

Barrios | Midtown OKC

1000 North Hudson, OKC< OK

You can’t beat the patio at Barrios Fine Mexican Dishes. Or the Carne Molida Taco. Or the Braised Rib Enchiladas. Their cocktails have a nice spin on the classics, too, so order one and treat your taste buds.

Hours: Open daily; hours vary, so check their website for more information. 

Phone: (405) 702-6922
