This is a great place for take-out as the seating is limited for eating in. The food is consistently good - not the best ever - but very good. The soups are particularly good. We recommend it for take out most definitely.

This restaurant has decent Mexican food for the East Coast. The soup is particularly good. But the restaurant is vastly overpriced for simple burritos etc. There is no alcohol served there but you can bring you own which is nice! Kids like it.

Ole Mole is tucked away in a small strip mall, and it doesn't look promising from the outside. However, the restaurant has a nice ambiance, the menu is good, the food was decent and the service was good. They do not have a liquor license yet, so if you go any time soon don't expect a Corona.

Newly expanded with indoor dining and a bar. Since then, the quality and quantity have gone down. Had a chicken quesadilla with little chicken or cheese. Tacos carnitas with heavy tortillas and very little cotija. Too bad; it used to be our go to.

My Take-Out Order Experience; Recently, after waiting patiently for the staff to complete a large, party order for another customer.....The staff skipped over me in line and waited on someone behind me in line, who had been there a very short time. Then, she went on to try to wait on yet another person who had just walked in!. I... More

Great authentic Mexican food. Always packed when I get there. Consistently wonderful and the service is great. I always have the shrimp dinner. No alcohol but that doesn't take anything away from the food and atmosphere.

We've been going to Ole Mole since it opened many years ago. Always fresh and delicious casual Mexican food. Not fancy but the new renovations added so much more table space. Never been disappointed. If you want authentic Mexican food for a reasonable price, try Ole Mole.

I frequented this "Hole in the Wall" restaurant weekly (at least) while contracting in Stamford from 1996 through 1999. On a road trip back from Boston to New Jersey in 2015 we decided to check back in. The restaurant has expanded in size considerably but has managed to maintain it's unique charm, and it's "no-fuss" authentic Mexican food. Their Burrito's... More

Tried this restaurant for dinner, driven by the good reviews. Located in a small strip mall, outside the Stamford restaurant area, it has an elegant decor, attentive and quick service and, more important, good food! Try the tacos with carnitas, as well as delicious fajitas. Great chip with salsa, served in a stylish manner. Service is very good. Highly recommended.
