Nice building and hostesses.

We understand this is under new management so we will give it another try. Margaritas are sweet and taste premixed. Nice patio.

Even an average rating may be generous in the case of Cafe Ole' during our recent visit. We should and could read the tripadvisor reviews in a little more detail, but we didn't.....this was an error in judgment on our part! The facilities, upon entering, certainly give a good impression and the young woman greeting customers at the entrance was... More

Can't say enough about the great food, service, drinks and general ambience if this place. After several tries at scheduling our first 'marguerita on an outside patio' of the season, my best friend and I lucked into perfect weather for some Cafe Ole patio-sitting this past Sat nite! I couldn't help but order my same favorite of theirs, the Quesadilla,... More

This restaurant was at one time a great spot for lunch, and with a recent remodel I thought it would be once again. The guacamole is still delicious, but the whole experience was lacking somehow. I find a restaurant where every single table rocks and where there are flies stalking me to just be uncomfortable. I'll try it again, but... More

If the bacon wrapped shrimp is the only menu item worth ordering here. And although it tastes wonderful and filling as well, it's very greasy. But I've tried the lobster tamales, various taco combinations which are fair at best. Make a decent drink and the staff is pleasant to deal with too.

The place has gone, in the last year, from just barely average, to a beer joint serving what I call "yuppie Mexican" food, not Mexican food. Even with that, the food is barely average. I will say the servers were great, but I go to a place mainly for the food.

We lived in Midtown back around ten years ago and use to eat here fairly often. I'll admit I had not been here in many, many moons and heard that it had changed a lot. We went on a Wednesday night and here is my take on it. The outside looks the same but the interior is much more open... More

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
