We like the atmosphere of this stand alone restaurant that is often packed with tourists and locals alike. The portions are always generous and the food nicely prepared. There is a full service bar. Try it. You will like it.

The food is okay but not spectacular. The service was marginal: seldom checking back in. The guacamole is bland and tastes as if if almost no avocado was in it.

This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants in Black Mountain. The Chori Pollo is not to be missed. The wait staff is friendly, the atmosphere is excellent. Two thumbs up!

Met a client for lunch. She suggested the place as she was local to the area. Good choice. Was happy to have a reservation as Ole was packed at lunch time. As requested, we got a prime table outside by the greenway and creek (see photos). Service was fast, professional, and friendly as provided by Ashlie. I ordered the chimichanga,... More

This was not the best Mexican I have ever eaten but it was served hot and was good. The prices were reasonable for the portions served. One thing I did not like was they served a bean dip with chips as opposed to a salsa. If you wanted salsa you had to order it. Alcohol was sold at very reasonable... More

Great outdoor seating, wonderful staff, great food, very clean particularly the rest rooms. The salsa bar was an added treat. They even alerted me to rain so I could put my top up. Nice place to have conversation with friends.

And the lunch specials are affordable. Service is also fast. However, the wifi does not work everywhere on the patio (for those who might take 'working lunches,' this can be an inconvenience.

Nothing special. Just about any mexican restaurant in WNC would be better. I ordered three tacos, a steak, a chicken and a pork. The steak was ok, probably because it was smothered in cheese. The chicken was very bland. The pork was so dry I didn't take more than one bite. They have a salsa bar but none of the... More
