Pretty Decent

The service was ok. The food was actually really good and the prices were fair. I had the table-side guacamole and the shrimp tacos. It was very flavorful, fresh and the portions were large. I thought this place smelled a little musty though. It looked pretty clean but the smell was a little... read more

A group of us went to Ole's for dinner - the outdoor patio is beautiful and has an outdoor fire pit. The brook running next to the patio is a great plus! The food is delicious! All made to order and they can easily accommodate special diets. Ole has a salsa bar that is open to all diners - the... More

This used to be a good place to eat. We've been eating here for over 5 years now and this was by far the worst experience. the food was bland, the chairs felt like they were close to falling apart, and the margaritas were the worst I've ever tasted. We sent the margaritas back but it appears this place is... More

Guacamole made table side - smooth tequila - some of the best dishes around. Highly recommend. Great place to sit outside with your group and listen to the creek behind you.

The atmosphere was typical for this type of place, seemed relatively clean. It took a long time to be waited on, our food was delivered the order was wrong (mine was wrong and my husbands was not what he ordered!). We had to ask for silverware three different times (twice after our food was delivered). The food was meh, fair... More

Tried this place out for the first time for lunch. Great food once we finally got it, had to chase server down for refills on drinks. Finally found someone to take our money while waiting for a check. Screaming kid in booth next to us did not help much - will try again on a slower day maybe.

One of the few places open on the 4th of July in the area. We didn't set out for Mexican, but were glad we found this place. Authentic Mexican food. I was expecting the traditional chips and salsa, but was surprised when the server set down warm bean dip (which was delicious, just a hint of heat). She then pointed... More
