It's ok

This wasn't by any means the best mexican food I've ever had, it's ok. Food tasted bland to be authentic mexican. Service was good, and we could walk from our hotel to here.

Ole's is great for lunch or dinner. The menu is large enough to please picky eaters. They have some local beers on tap as well as wine and liquor. And they have a salsa bar. The fajitas are one of my favorite dishes to order.

I've dined here four times, as I'm only 15 miles away. The first three were excellent, Authentic Mexican food. I took my family here for Father's Day 2015, but was a little disappointed. My wife and I share the mixed faitas for two, both of us commented it was not the best we've tasted, odd taste, no seasoning and 85%... More

We have been going here even back when it was in the first location -which is now Fresh Pizza- the food is great, the atmosphere is always welcoming. The food was better when it was a smaller place as the attention to detail was greater. That being said the food is still good! We love to go and sit outside... More

A lunch outdoors by the creek is a nice change from dining in inside, especially on a warm spring day. This is only one, of two, Mexican restaurants that I have visited that served a basket of tortillas with beans, as opposed to salsa. However, they have a salsa bar with (at least) nine different salsas. If you like salsa... More

Excellent cuisine! You'll have a hard time deciding what to have. Extensive menu. Tried 5 different dishes on two occasions and all were delicious. Take out is fast and reliable. The guacamole is the best ever. Once you try the tortilla chips you'll never go back to store bought. Being in the middle of barbecue country, Ole's is a welcome... More

Went to Ole's with my 5 family members for dinner. Food was amazing, as usual. Service was great. We will definitely be back over and over again.

Family owned restaurant that serves delicious Mexican cuisine....not just your traditional combination plates, but creative offerings. Love sitting on the outside patio right by the creek. Excellent service.

We came in fairly late on a Saturday night and chose to eat outside. That proved to be an excellent choice as the inside dining seemed a bit bright and not terribly inviting. However, the outdoor tables are adjacent to a large babbling brook, and the effect was quite pleasant. I had carne asada and my friend had fajitas -... More

Have been here before and it is consistently excellent. Ate outside beside the creek and had a wonderful meal. Large portions - too much for me!
