Good Mexican in Interesting Location
For casual full-service Mexican dining, Chimi's is a reliable choice. Locally owned, Chimi's has been operating in Tulsa since 1983. It currently has three locations in the city. The menu contains the expected fare of enchiladas, chimichangas, burritos, etc. but it is all well-prepared and everything can be ordered a la carte or as part of combination dinners. The tamales are particualrly good, and I enjoy the Friday evening special of shrimp enchiladas. The freshly made salsa is also noteworthy, with two degrees of spiciness served as a compliment to your meal with endless baskets of homemade tortilla chips. There is a lunch menu that offers several favorites with slightly smaller portions and reduced prices. Chimi's also has a full bar.
Of the three locations, the one on 15th Street, in the Cherry Street shopping district (see my "Shopping" page), is recommended over the others. It is situated in Lincoln Plaza, a center at 15th & S. Peoria Ave. formed from buildings that once comprised the c.1909 Lincoln Elementary School. In fair weather the patio perched up on the north side of the building is a great place to enjoy your meal and a margarita, with a very nice view of the Tulsa skyline to the northwest. The large windows in the main dining area also provide the same good view.

"The Red Dirt Road"
And there I was looking for a man that made sheep skin seat covers. What an adventure that was as I left the bitumen to head for a rally site I'd never heard. All because a guy in Tulsa recommended another guy in Tulsa who turned out to be away for the weekend at a nearby Rally.
Now that's how travellin' work ain't it.
