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...

We happened upon this restaurant after visiting the King's Mountain Art Festival last year, and liked it so much we made a beeline to it after attending this year's festival. It's located in a small strip mall (rather upscale due to the Belmont location), with an unpretentious exterior, but the interior is a rustic and colorful rendition of a village... More

While you can get the Gringo favorites, they have lots of regional specialties which are the best things on the menu. Mariaches play some nights, so if you're looking to talk with friends inquire if they are playing. This place is so popular it often has lines out the door, even though it is a very large place. Nice views... More
