Excellent food. Some unexpected menu items as well as the usual Mexican fare. Friendly staff who speak Spanish and English. Try the Philly steak burrito-my favorite.

I live just a few miles from Restaurant Ole so I eat there often, not just for the convenience but for the great food and service as well. I've had pretty much every item on the menu and I can honestly say, I've never had a bad meal. On my most resident visit I had the steak and chicken fajitas... More

We tried this place from the reviews on TripAdvisor and it was awful! The only thing remotely close to Mexican food was the chips and salsa and that wasn't even good. Every dish was made with mozzarella cheese which was really weird tasting.The Chili Rellenos was stuffed with the mozzarella and it was tasteless. The nacho were limp and of... More

I've been to Virginia Beach twice since moving to Virginia; Once in 2012, and once in 2011. I've had the Steak Texas Burrito both times and was never disappointed. I forgot to post about my experience until I discovered an old classmate from high school is about to go down to Virginia Beach soon.

Very pleasant atmosphere and staff. We went for lunch and the food was excellent. Prices were comparable to other Mexican restaurants. I was raised in Texas and this was as good as most, but not all of the places where I have have eaten over the years. When I compare Ole to all the places I have eaten it is... More

When my wife and I visited Restaurante Ole, it was ranked by tripadvisor as the #3 dining establishment in Virginia Beach. Since then it has slipped to #19, but should be rated much, much lower. We arrived at lunch to find an ordinary Mexican-style restaurant, no worse than all those others that dot every American cityscape, but certainly no better.... More

This is the best Mexican food we've ever eaten. Well worth the 20 min drive from Virginia Beach. Get the carnitas you wont be dissapointed: the pork is served in moist flavorful chunks. Most places dice the pork to bitsy pieces then fry it, leaving it dried out. Our whole family was pleased with their menu selection. Kids got tacos... More
