  1. Default Jose's Authentic Mexican

    Noticed this new place had opened in the old Peacock Restaurant at 517 W. Reno.

    Looks like they are serving breakfast, don't know if it's American breakfast or Mexican, and unlike most of the taquerias that serve breakfast they open at 7:00 AM instead of 8:00 AM or after.

    Exciting. This is a block from me. Can't wait to try it. One review on line. Short review but very positive. Couldn't find a website.

    from their yelp page, they have pictures of croissant breakfast sandwiches (similar to what you'd find at a doughnut shop) and strawberry pancakes... so there are some american items on their breakfast menu... no telling if they have mexican breakfast items not pictured. https://www.yelp.com/biz/jose-s-mexi...-oklahoma-city

    the one time i went to peacock and had a gyro, it was baaaad... the gyro meat had the consistency of cheap lunch meat and was sliced nearly as thin. i typically order extra meat whenever i get a gyro, but i couldn't even finish that one.

    This is very similar to my one experience at Peacock.

    I think the draw to Peacock and part of why it lasted so long was it was inexpensive.... If I remember correctly they had a $2.99 breakfast that was bacon, eggs, and toast.

    Yeah... A little further than a block but easy walking distance for me as well... About the same distance as Revolucion for me.

    The Google page says 7-days, but the Yelp page differs, so might need to validate that.

    And if they have a Facebook page, it's probably different from Google and Yelp, lots of places are inconsistent about their hours across all the platforms.

    Went this afternoon and already a big fan.

    The space is big and they've done a very good job of making it colorful and welcoming. The people working there could not have been more friendly and helpful.

    The setup is your typical chips, salsa and queso but all was a cut above your average Okie-Mex place. The chips were darker than most and smaller and slightly thick. Queso is usually pretty unremarkable but I really enjoyed the taste and consistency of theirs. And the house salsa was fresh, tasty and with a little kick of spice.

    I had seen they make a few different types of salsa for purchase but was told they would not have them at the restaurant to buy until next week (some are already on sale at Crest). However, they brought me a small dish of the mango habanero and it was fantastic. Sweet but quite spicy, especially on the back end. They have another spicy salsa but I didn't try it but will buy both it and the mango version when they stock them.

    For the entre I ordered the #12, chicken enchiladas in green sauce. Fantastic. The salsa verde was flavorful and bright and yes, a bit spicy. The chicken filling wasn't that sit-in-a-pot-all-day stewy kind of meat you find too often at this sort of place. It was in chucks and fresh. The tortillas were somewhat coarse but in a good way. Serving was 4 enchiladas which is more than I needed but they were so good I ate every bite.

    It came with a side of rice and a small salad. Would have preferred beans to what was essentially a salad garnish but the rice was light and fluffy if a bit plain.

    I failed to ask about beer or liquor but I assume that is coming.

    Tons of free parking all around and easy to get to. I sure hope they find a following because they are incredibly nice and I would rank this at the top of the Mexican food I've had in OKC.

    We did take out today and the complete opposite opinion. I was eating light and only had a asada taco. It was dry and overcooked. The salsa was watery. The burger my brother had was burnt. The other two people in my office did not like their entrees (torta and carnita taco) either.

    Based on Pete's experience, we will go back in and eat there and see if we have a different food experience.

    The interior is a very nice version of a classic Mexican restaurant in Oklahoma. The service was exceedingly nice and overly attentive if lacking in knowledge of their offerings. I ordered Mexican Pork Loin (lomo de la Mexican by their spelling). See what i was served below. Aside from the Thunder Blue rice (arroz azul???) and the Ore-Ida crinkle cuts, the loin was quick braised??? in the veggie mixture for a really short time that failed to render the fat. It was white and waxy inside and the meat was pretty tough like it was cooked over high heat for too little time for that particular cut. I might return for breakfast or desserts, but there are far, far too many other better choices for diner in the Metro.
