Olga and the crew at OJ's offer a very nice selection of Traditional OJ's Mexican Food. The portions are huge, as is the "Gut Buster" Burrito made your way. They make their own hot sauce, and it sits on the table for your enjoyment with whatever you order. Of you choose a Beer or Margarita with dinner, OJ's has those... More

It has been years since being here. Rustic Mexican joint that has been around for ages. Not a very large menu, only about 8-10 main course items and 6 or so appetizers. Good service, and the food was not great, but not bad either. If your looking for something different, ( non Chain type of place) this is your place... More

Enchilada Is definitely not the "gut buster" it used to be. Dwindling numbers of customers is proof of that. Enchilada is ok but something is different in addition to the reduced portion size and price increases.

Haven't been to OJ's Cafe in some time. My brother reminded me how good it was, so we thought we'd try it again. The chips (corn) and salza (just the perfect amount of spice) were some of the best ever. Had the Beef Enchilada which was very good...my wife had a very tasty, soft-shell taco. We both tried the Tortilla... More

I have traveled the world over and I have not found a better taco than at OJ's. I always make time for at least two when I am in Omaha.

I haven't been to OJ's in years. I don't remember why I hadn't gone back but I took my daughter for dinner last night and I was so sorry I hadn't. I ordered a beef enchilada and it was the best enchilada I could remember eating. And it was huge!! The service was great and the prices are reasonable. Our... More

Spent almost $73 on the coldest and nastiest food ever purchased from a restaurant. The guy said he was the owner and argued with me about my order and about how he wrote everything down as I had said it, so there could be no mistake. I told him to show me the ticket, but he said he ripped it... More

My daughters went to OJ's tonight, 3/22/2014. They were treated rudely, didn't get what was ordered and were ridiculed when they complained. Three orders of nachos, three tacos, a tamale and enchilada came to $73. While the orders were generous, the nachos weren't as good as Taco Bell's, the tacos had more lettuce than anything, and the orders were wrong.... More

We had a large group and called ahead. They set up a table for us before we arrived. The service was great and food is cheap and very good. The beef enchilada's are huge! Great value for the money and cheap drinks too. Will definitely be back!

This little restaurant is located north of Omaha's Eppley Air Field. It is close to the corner of 30th Street and I-480. It is a family restaurant serving family recipes. The food is delicious. I had the Burrito with meat and cheese filling. The cost was $9.97. I shared the extras with my husband. Don't be off by the down... More
