About Elote Cafe & Catering
Established in 2008.
Elote was opened in May 2008 by owner Libby and Jeramy Auld. Libby is a Tulsa native, graduated high school at Booker T. Washington and went on to Culinary school at OSU. She grew up working in many restaurants, but really enjoying the Mexican style cuisine. In many Mexican style restaurants you will find flavorful food, but with unnecessary fats and additives that are not good for our bodies. Libby wanted to keep the flavors of the food while filling the plate with natural ingredients that will leave you full but not feeling bad. Since 2008, Elote has grown from a only lunch cafe to a lunch and dinner service restaurant with a full bar and our popular entertainment....Luchador wrestling.
At Elote, we strive to serve you amazing food every day by using the freshest ingredients available. We know how difficult it is too eat healthy, fresh food in our busy lives. We are dedicated to making that easier for our customers. Fresh ingredients enable us to deliver tasty, healthy, filling food straight from our kitchen, right to your plate. We do all this while limiting negative environmental impact through green practices including:
Meats organically grain fed and raised in Bixby, Oklahoma
We Compost! Our produce remnants are composted to nourish the community gardens at Newsome Community Farms.
All To Go plates, forks, knives and napkins are 100% biodegradable and made from sugar beets and corn instead of Styrofoam.
