Mexican
1492 Casady is the Chavez Brother's 2nd ventured to take Mexican and Latin American away from the usual panchos and sombreros on the wall and showcase more than enchiladas. 1492 offers a little bit from all of Latin America, from Venezuelan Pabellon to Cuban Puerco Criolla and back the famous Seafood Enchiladas and Traditional Tex-Mex. Enjoy a drink in the bar with one of their one and only Marcos Frozen Mojitos, or 1492 Swirl, even sit back and enjoy a glass from their extensive South American Wine list. The food, atmosphere, staff, and the overall restaurant experience truly embodies the combination of Latino Spirit and American Life.

We normally love this restaurant but this time not so much. Our waiter wasn’t filling drinks, not bringing correct drinks. Our steak fajitas were yummy as normal but our friends chicken fajitas were cold. My friend ordered no rice and veggies instead and she got rice. We never got the guacamole/sour cream/pico plate for our fajitas. Then there was a screaming baby behind us (I know it isn’t the restaurants fault). Then our bill charged us for an extra beer, one couple also got charged for an extra beer or two, and the other couple got charged for a sprite, no one at our table even had a sprite. After all this they double charged two of our credit cards

1492 is my go-to restaurant for lunch. They take reservations, the chips and salsa are free, and your lunch arrives quickly. The food is fresh, very well-prepared and seasoned. The $10 "pick two" menu provides great value for the money!

This is my second time at this restaurant. And both times have been excellent. The food was fabulous and authentic. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. He was able to reccomend dishes and they were wonderful. I highly recommend this place. It is a little more on the pricey side, so my friend and I always save it for a special occasion.

I really love the ambiance, staff, and selection of dishes here. It's a different take on the classic Latin cuisine while still maintaining dishes that you can identify on the menu. Definitely recommend the specialty cocktails as well. Very tasty.

Always good - Cocktail Del Mar still my favorite cerviche style starter, just not on menu, but ask for it. Entrees good as always, esp the hanger steak and stuffed poblano pepper, and the shrimp fajitas. Frozen sangria and margaritas always great. Highly recommended for the best of "Mexican" food in OKC, although their influences are from central & South America. Try it!!

I was very disappointed with the service we received. Our Server was slow or she had to many tables assigned. My food was tasty, but cold. I had to have them warm it up. I was also being charged for drinks that we did not ordered. Our Waitress blamed it on a new system that they had just installed. If it wasn't for the fact that everyone else there tried to fill all of our server's short comings I would not recommend this to anyone. but I will give them another chance.

As always the food was fantastic. Every time I dine here, I try a different menu item. I've never been let down. If you like cocktails, try the Mojitini, delicious. Also try the coconut rice as a side dish.... even more tasty. Servers have always been friendly and usually fun.

The food was excellent. I was a little disappointed in my drink -- specialty mule -- that I ordered. The cup was not full, actually felt like it was just sort of thrown together. I am pretty sure the bartender was not there the time we were there and our waiter fixed our drink. Seemed to be doing a little bit of everything, so maybe there wasn't a lot of care taken with our drink. We've been here several times with no issues, so I won't let this experience keep us from going again. The food is unique and very tasty!

My husband and I went on a Friday night. The place was pretty full and quite loud. Our server was very informative and we didn't feel rushed, the food was very tasty. We shared the Ahi ceviche which could have been a little spicier but overall good.
Then we got the fish enchiladas and Cuban carne asada, both were very generous servings and well prepared. The yucca fries were a little dry, a dipping sauce of spicy mayo or Huancaina sauce like they serve them in Peru would have been good. The plantains were so good.
Enjoyed our evening and would come back.

The bartender should not have to double as a server for that area as it results in very slow and subpar service. The other dining area doesn’t seem to have that issue.
