Great place to hold your Mixers

Over the weekend we had a mixer at HOlas. They did a great job making sure we had plenty of room for our group and waiter was very kind enough to do separate checks for our group

I go here sometimes when I go visit my friends/ past co-workers at the Belmont Library. We sometimes go to Hola's due to their location and it's been OK. I've had gone a few times before with my mom. I've had OK experiences here. Food is OK. Service could be a lot better. I recall one time I ordered the... More

Frequently Mexican food is either too spicey or too bland. This was just right. The menu offered some items different from the traditional taco, burrito, etc. The guacamole was thick and flavorful not like the watered down frequently found. There is an assortment of fish items and a wonderful soup had by one in our party. Portions were generous and... More

Holas' food is great, their atmosphere is really good and their servers are always nice. I am usually a meat only type of guy and their tacos are amazing (although a little pricey) but their ceviche is to die for. I don't usually like seafood but this ceviche is something you just have to try to believe. Great place to... More

The food is pretty good just nothing special. Portions are huge and generally a lot of sauce. I had much better Mexican food but I've had way way worse. Staff are friendly and attentive though so no complaints about the service. Just nothing to write home about! Good for kids though.

This place is in Belmont and I live in San Francisco, so you know it's totally worth it! I've been coming here for years and what you I appreciate the most is the consistency. This means in terms or service, quality, ambience, comfort, flavor and taste. Although the ambience is gringo (just representative of the location) the staff and food... More

All around good Mexican food with fresh ingredients, tasty sauces. I've have several meals there, and they hit the mark, from their excellent enchiladas to seafood that's prepared well and not overcooked. The menu is quite broad with a variety that will fit almost any taste. (No, I don't have any economic interest in the restaurant, and I don't even... More

My daughter, a friend and I were out apartment hunting and came across this little gem in a strip mall area. The service was friendly, the restaurant and bathrooms were clean and the food was the best Mexican food I've had in a very long time! I wanted to lick the plate clean! We had the chicken poblano enchiladas, a... More
