Our Story

In 1979, Marcelino "Chelino" Garcia came to Oklahoma City from Aguascalientes, Mexico. Starting out as a dishwasher at a local Mexican restaurant, he worked his way up to cook and then into management. He later opened his first "Chelino's" restaurant and now has 12 locations throughout the OKC metro area as well as a tortilla factory, a bakery, meat market and a Mexican import store.

We invite you to be a part of our story and join us at any of our locations as we grow to serve even more hungry Oklahomans.
