We sat outside on the patio under a hug tree. They atmosphere was very pleasant. They had a lady on a small stage with a guitar that sang beautifully. We ordered the 100 ounce beer for our table. It was very good. We will defiantly return to this location again.

Cafe Ole has changed in the last year for the better. Menu has good variety and not your everyday tex-mex selections. You can have quesdillas your way, tell them what combination you want. Lobster tamales are great as well as blue crab salad. Drink specials on the weekends. Love the frozen strawberry margarita's. Taste like fresh strawberry's with a hint... More

This place has done a complete 360 from a year ago. The new management has really turned things for the better. Love the good and drinks. Great music is always playing and some of the best local bands play here.

Stopped by Saturday afternoon, the area was dead and this was the only restaurant with any action. Mexican with a Memphis twist, avocado French fries? They seem to cater to drinkers, with 48 oz beer bongs, huge margaritas, etc., but it was fun. Jonathan was very nice, interesting and loves his job.

We were there on a Sunday afternoon, it was busy with people enjoying the outside patio and having drinks at bar, the food was wonderful you should try the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer... We had excellent service. Can't wait to go back.

It had been awhile since I last ate here & I had a craving for something spicy SO I went there already knowing what I wanted to eat. Because My Fav Mexican restaurant in Memphis doesn't have a dish on their menu like this. So although I cant brag on the service I did enjoy the dish I ordered. And... More

We used to enjoy Cafe Ole but had not been in quite a while. I suggested to a friend that we go to lunch there since they recently remodeled. There were two tables of customers other than us but our service was still very slow and inattentive. My friend had to ask to have her water refilled. The food was... More

We really want everything in Cooper Young to do well, and it was a little sad to see how weak this new incarnation is. Our food was just OK. You had to order rice separately, and it was VERY ordinary. Service was OK. We just don't see any reason to return.

Only a couple years ago cafe ole was THE place for cheap booze & fantastic margaritas. I cannot even count the number of nights I've stumbled home from cafe ole- granted the food was so-so, but, the reason you came was for the drinks & fantastic patio. After it was sold- last year- I refused to go back- knowing that... More
