Great food and drinks! Never liked going to Mexican restaurants because of the salt intake. Well, if you ask the server for no added salt they listen. Very tasty good portions and friendly staff. We have been 3 times since Dec and will go again on Saturday for dinner. Can't wait to have a mango margarita 😊!

The menu is not as extensive as other Mexicans joints, but far more interesting, went with a group of five, everyone enjoy their meals, I try the Texas burrito, tasty and generous, also everyone was raving about the music!

Nice atmosphere with attentive staff. I can see why it's won awards. I agree it's the best Mexican restaurant in the area. I'll be back

We went to Ole last evening for dinner with our two kids. The sign atop the restaurant says "Thursday Kids eat for $1" and "15% off if pay with cash". Well, only one of our two kids qualified....the 11 yr old didn't....but we are okay with that. The other one did eat for $1....chicken nuggets and fries. The 11 yr... More

Dear Sir, first we really appreciate you visited us with your family, also want to thank you for your review and to offer you an apology for the misunderstanding and more than that the poor response you received about the issue at stake, I personaly am working on changing the wording on the sign, and will be more than happy...

The waiter had some trouble speaking English (Mexicano I guess?) and the owner is a bit too touchy (keeps tapping your shoulders any time he can) Food: OK, way too much for me, but OK. Beware to stop eating Nachos as they'll keep on adding them ;-) my Chorio Steak had a bit too much greasy bits.

One of the best Mexican restaurants around. We ate there twice, first for diner and the next day for lunch. For diner we tried steak, chicken and shrimp fajitas for two. They were flavorful and tasty. For lunch the next day, we tried the beef taco salads. They were fabulous. Friendly and speedy staff with excellent prices.

We wanted to try a new Mexican restaurant and had heard about Restaurant Ole. We tried 3 pretty standard dishes that are regulars for us at various places in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. Fajitas, quesadilla and soft tacos all were about as good as we've had. Particularly the quesadilla topped our experience with good flavors and perfectly done. The soft... More
