Mexicali Border Cafe
Restaurant $$ | Closed
We’ve been in downtown Tulsa for almost 30 years, but our story starts in 1917 when Julio Tumatoe won the Mexicali Cantina in a poker game.
We’re a casual Mexican eatery located in the Tulsa Arts District serving familiar favorites and original dishes.

Get to know Mexicali Border Cafe
Ol’ Julio was good at poker, but his wife was even better at cooking. As she made fresh Baja dishes from generational recipes in the little kitchen out back, word spread fast that Mexicali had the best food, the coldest drinks, and was the top choice for celebrating everything from birthdays to sundown. Eventually, Julio and his wife handed us the recipes, gave us a big loan, and told us to “git after it.” So here we are.
