Good food, the wait was a little longer than usual, not too bad. They made fresh guacamole at our table which was nice. Good place to stop and have lunch or supper.

Let me preface this by saying I'm not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I've been to Ole's twice and loved it both times. I have become a fan of their chicken dishes, I suppose created with a Mexican twist. You could put some of these dishes in a French restaurant and they would pass the litmus test. Of... More

Ole's has lost it's touch as a favorite of ours. The service used to be one of the best parts. The food is still pretty good we like the shrimp tacos and the salsa bar is nice.

Ole's used to be our go to for great Mexican food. The last few times it's not been as tasty. The restaurant seems a little dirty and the health score has decreased a bit also. Hopefully they get back to their old ways which is what has made them successful for several years.

Hubby and I went for dinner on a Saturday night and got there right before the wait started. This was during one of the LEAF events (Lake Eden Arts Festival) when it can be hard to get a table at any restaurant, They have excellent food, fairly authentic with options for those crazy people who don't like Mexican cuisine.

Went there for dinner and had quesadillas. The food here is real fresh and authentic Mexican. The sides are very flavorful and the portions are large. Great value for the price. We sat out back by the small creek and the service was fast and friendly. This is a great find and we will definitely be back for more.
