The food here was OK, but not stand-out. The portions were also really big, so we couldn't finish what we ordered. We had a couple of micheladas and they were pretty massive. We had them with Bohemia beer and they were decent enough. Also, their salsa with chips is pretty good, as is their guacamole. We ordered an 'uno' burrito... More

I have always found the food here mediocre, the atmosphere tired, and the service awkward, but they recently reopened after a two month "remodel" (the place looks exactly the same as it did before, with sloping tables etc) so we thought we'd try it again. Nothing tastes fresh, I feel heavy after I eat here (even though its only 1-2... More

I love this place, whenever me and my girlfriend are craving Mexican food this is where we go. It's right up the street from the university, and they don't only serve good margaritas, but also good food. You can even order take out. I really enjoy the atmosphere with the babbling brook outside and the music.

Admittedly, it's been awhile since I was there, but for these reasons - it was overly noisy for a late afternoon, the service was not that great, and frankly, the food, while a lot, was not that great either, chips were soggy, food was nothing special. I think I ordered a Burrito plate, they were just average and the sauce... More

If you are looking for a family friendly Mexican restaurant this is place. Since my kids have been little we have been able to bring them to Hola without a problem. The place is noisy so the kids loud voices blend. The service has also been fast which helps.

Popped in for a drink and snack mid afternoon. The staff were really friendly and helpful in going through the snack options. The snack portions were generous and delicious. It was a very good experience and based on this experience I would return for a meal.

Was going to an event at Notre Dame High and decided to try this restaurant. We found easy parking and were seated immediately. The hostess was friendly and attentive. Our service appeared at the table almost immediately and was prompt with our drink orders. The casa quesadilla was good. The Vanessa Taco Salad was just okay. No real taste or... More

We have eaten at Hola several times and get good tasty meals with large portions for the most part. Service is usually good. There are several TVs around so I would guess they are quite busy when there are sporting events on. We usually eat early so we are leaving when things start to get busy. Prices are reasonable and...
