I went with a friend in his shiny new car. While pulling into the parking lot, another driver didn't see us as he was backing out. All worked out fine. I mention this as partial defense for my friend's parking attempt. We pulled into a readily available spot with a loading zone on the right. I THOUGHT I recalled a plain white wheelchair painted in the spot, so I mentioned it. There was no sign posted in front of us. So we backed up a bit to see if there was painting in the spot. We didn't see any. I was still unconvinced, so I got out and looked under the car. No paint, so I guess we're ok. So we began to cross the street towards the restaurant entrance. I looked back, and sure enough there was a big white painted label with wheelchair chairlie under which it said "VAN". So he moved his car.

There is another disabled parking spot against the building with a sign posted on the fence it faces. There are two manhole type covers between the spot and the ramp, but no big deal to go around. The ramp is very slight and gets you to the front set of double doors fine. Inside is the vestibule area which is far larger than most. Nothing impedes movement to the second set of double doors.

Once inside, on the left and adequately low built is the counter on which sits the register and after dinner mints. You are led to your table through a fairly navigable placement of plentiful seating. Booths line the walls with tables in the middle. If someone is seated in the outside chair of a table that backs up to an aisle, there may be some minor rearrangement to accommodate, but this seemed unlikely. We were there during an OU game, and though loud and populated, there was still plenty of room for us at the tables and nobody was seated on the outside of a table.

The restrooms are in the back corner of the restaurant through a narrower partition that opens up slightly to allow access to doors. There was a chair placed back there at the time that would have made passage difficult. If, like many restaurants, this is the area to place things to get them out of the way, passage will be impeded. The restroom doors feature doorknobs, which makes opening with a closed fist difficult or impossible. The [men's] restroom is a small multiple-occupancy room with a urinal and a stall. The door to the stall is wide enough but wider than the interior of the stall itself. There may be difficulties in entering the stall and closing the door. It is definitely too narrow to transfer easily. The sink is set at an acceptable height but the soap and towels may be difficult to reach.

This is a pretty accessible restaurant with exception to the restroom. I like the large area between the sets of double doors. I also like the single parking spot against the building being allocated for disabled parking. As I said we went during an OU game, so this could have presented problems but didn't. Go for the enchiladas but don't stay to use the restroom.
