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!

This is a great restaurant with a salsa bar, a big menu, and outside seating along side a pretty babbling creek.

In one of the most beautiful, historic, slow small towns is Ole's. It is beside a little stream that has indoor seating, taco sauce bar or outdoor seating with like palm leaf, natural looking umbrellas, a relaxing looking experience. The food tasted great, fast service, good fajitas, enchiladas, chips and salsa all filing. Ample parking, will go back.

Fresh warm tortilla chips with a salsa bar and great guac. Nice big margaritas. Had group of 5, fish tacos, meat tacos, avocado burrito. Everything tasted great, prices were reasonable, service was fast and efficient. Decor was a bit tired/menus were plastic covered and beat, but we wanted Mexican and this fit the bill!

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.
