This was your typical Mexican restaurant. The food was great. They give you a creamy bean dip instead of salsa with your chips,so that was different.The location was great. The prices were reasonable. The patio area was nice. Next to a stream. My waitress would have preferred to flirt with the bartender than wait on us but otherwise it was... More

Best Mexican food we've had in quite awhile. Place was busy but the service was fine. Only complaint is that the place wasn't as clean as we like, table and seats were sticky. Also the menu's had food (probably salsa drippings) on them.

By a mountain stream just on the outer edge of downtown Black Mountain, this is a place you could easily miss. You can sit inside the colorfully decorated interior or outside next to the stream. Food not as unique as it used to be but still very good.

We were visiting Black Mountain for only two nights and arrived pretty hungry. Whilst Grandpa and youngest granddaughter relaxed in our room, eldest granddaughter and I traipsed across the mountain stream bridge to Ole's. They were VERY busy, but very kind and friendly. ALL of our food was delicious, well prepared, and their salsa bar had so many choices!

We were here for a family celebration of life for my uncle and this was one of his favorite places to eat, we know why! Food was good, hot, and plentiful. And the price can't be beat! Bud light $1.99 special 16oz, the chips and bean dip with the salsa bar all complimentary with your dinner. I had the fish... More

The service here was really fast, but without making you feel they wanted to you to eat up and get out. Their salsa bar was interesting, all very fresh tasting with a nice mix of flavors. There is a green salsa that tasted like cucumbers and cilantro that was fresh and tasty. I got a shrimp fajita, my husband got... More

The food is good, and if the service is a little off, sitting beside Flat Creek in the twilight makes the wait worth while.

Fajitas were excellent and had lots of veggies - other than that everything else was average. Bean dip provided with chips was average as was the salsa choices at the salsa bar. Margaritas are terrible - stick with XX beer. Chicken enchiladas were not good - chicken was dry. Wife liked her meal. Service was slow.

The staff was super attentive and I really wanted to agree with the other reviewers, but I found the food to be only mediocre.
