Three reasons to make a run to the border. Mexicali Border Cafe in Tulsa to be specific!
1. You are craving generous servings of TexMex dishes done well. You are hungry!
2. You want plenty of room to navigate with any sort of wheelchair. Large, small, power, or manual wheelchair users will find plenty of designated parking spaces in a spacious parking lot. Easy ramp to inside and wide aisles with plenty of space between tables and booths. Too hungry to waste time trying to get past other diners.
3. Everyone in your group should be able to find selections they are comfortable with. Chimichangas and 3 kinds of queso dips. Their menu would be an excellent fit for anyone looking for familiar suburban TexMex while in the downtown Arts District.
While I am able to get into many independent restaurants with my smaller manual wheelchair, it can be more of an obstacle for larger powerchair users. Easy to park and enter, while also easy to get to dining room seating. Even the restrooms have the facilities wheelchair users need. They are very family-friendly and they have the space to accommodate large groups at tables, so bring everyone and celebrate! You can’t beat the location close to Cain’s Ballroom and BOK Center. Most of the restaurants in the area require on-street parking, which can be tricky with larger adapted vans. It can be such a relief to see an open lot. We enjoyed our meals at Mexicali Border Cafe and I think you will too.
You can find the Mexicali Border Cafe at 14 W Reconciliation Way, in Tulsa’s Arts District.
