Calaveras Grill - 2326 East Admiral Blvd - Tulsa

I started looking for this place after Brian Schwartz wrote it up. It is next to the Circle 2 cinema and on one of the many parts of Admiral - specifically a part that runs South of 244. (I don't know why Admiral has to be quite so confusing.) They seem very friendly there, but you do have to go to the counter to place your order up front and they will later bring your food to your table. Despite this practice, the table service is quite attentive. They also have a salsa station at the end of the resto and they actually had a nicely spicy green salsa! Chips and salsa were good and no charge for a refill of chips. I ordered the caldo de sete mares after asking what fish they had in it. What I got had 2 green-lipped mussels, 4 little clams, a couple of skinny crab legs, a few butch prawns and some whitefish - I had been told I'd also get some octopus but if there was any I missed it. For the price I guess there was just about enough fish but I think the broth was a little thin and could have been better seasoned. Not a disaster - still pretty tasty but not IMHO as good as the same dish from Rio Verde. Good enough to warrant another trip.
