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.

Service was very slow. Our orders were incorrect, and not a good place to go during a hour work lunch.

The menu at 1492 is not standard Tex-Mex, but has significantly more Latin menu items. The pollo molé is sublime, the shredded beef outstanding. Service was the weak area, the wait staff was borderline rude or nonexistent.

Food was good. Service was good. We had a very good waitress. Food was delivered quickly and drinks refilled without asking. My husband had the chimichanga. He loved it. Would go back.

Always great food and I love the location. The Tres Leches cake is some of the best I have ever had! Amazing.

The food was not like before. The refried beans were runny and the enchiladas just didn't taste good.

We’ve been here several times and always loved it. It felt a little average tonight. Nothing special about the fajitas or nachos. Cocktail was average. Server was nice but it was a tad slow.

I had a reservation since first of January and I was surprised when they put us back by the kitchen. There was a strong fish smell that maybe me a little uncomfortable about the food. When we asked if we could move you were very helpful, however, the sun was in our eyes until the dessert came when the sun went down. Have you considered shade for the very top? It was just very hard to enjoy the whole night and we had already moved once.

Part if my meal was cold, like leftovers had been warmed up, beans cold. I’ve had better experience at this restaurant in the past- my margarita was delicious

Went for my birthday - the food was good, the price was right. But i bought birthday shots for myself and two guys at the table next to us. Turns out the drink prices were nuts. $27 for 3 shots of Fireball. That’s about what a handle costs at a liquor store. Overall, liked the place but if you like to drink, bring a flask 😂

W shave been to 1492 several times over the years and have always found the experience to be good and enjoyable however the last 2 visits and especially the last one we found the food quality to be average and the service was a joke.

Great food! Tacos Al Carbon are wonderful. Guacamole is good but too pricey for as little as you get. Drinks are meiodcre. Noise level is somewhat loud but not a lot you can do about that.

Waitress was terrible. This is the first time I’ve encountered that here, so will be back for sure. 1492 is one of my fave OKC restaurants- they deserve better than the laziness displayed by our server.

Worth a visit no matter your tastes and culinary desires. Excellent fare across all the meats and veggies you’d expect in a Latin restaurant,,,, however, it’s more than that. Strongly recommend you try 1492

We were looking forward to going back to 1492. I doubt we will return. They did not have the first two entrees we attempted to order. The entrees they did have came to the table a few minutes after we ordered, while we were in the middle of our appetizer. We were rushed throughout, for no reason I could understand as there were empty tables.

Didn’t love it. I made our reservation a week in advance and when we got there they tried to seat us at a table directly next to the kitchen door. When I asked the hostess if we could sit somewhere else she let us move but was kind of rude about it. I didn’t love my food but I think I just ordered the wrong thing because the rest of our group liked it. I would go again if someone invited me there but wouldn’t choose it on my own.

I like how quiet 1492 is for business lunches. The service is always very good. I did 4 stars only because I eat plant-based/Vegan and there really aren't choices. They were very gracious and made me some veggie tacos, which were fine. Our server was great!
