The winning restaurant will not only receive bragging rights, but also an award to display that they do indeed have the people’s choice for best chips and salsa in Tulsa for 2016. A few restaurants will also showcase a sampling of their signature dishes in the Tasting Room.
Participants to date include: Abuelo’s, Chuy’s, Monterey’s, Chimi’s, Bravos Mexican Grill Calaveras, Los Cabos, Taco Bueno, El Guapo, Freebirds!, Ted’s Café Escondido, Tacos El Pollo, La Mansion, Elote, Santa Fe Cattle Co, El Sombrero and El Super Taco.
While taste testing is a main attraction, this afternoon of family entertainment comes complete with piñatas, live music, salsa dance lessons, inflatables, face painting, a burrito eating contest and more. Salsa is a fundraising event benefiting TFI Family Connections.
Admission is only $5 per person, and children under age 5 are free. Tickets to the Tasting Room are $40 and include admission to the Salsa Arena. These can be purchased online.
