I couldn't decide what I wanted, so I had a combo platter with a beef enchilada and a chile relleno. They were both excellent, as were the rice, beans and tortilla chips. The food was fresh and delicious. I tried the Ole Margarita, and it was very, very good. Definitely a place to go back to.

I love this place. Sitting outside by the stream is so relaxing too! Great place to meet friends and be able to sit outside for a drink and yummy Mexican food. Good service too!

We live fairly locally and decided to eat here one evening because we had always seen a lot of cars parked there and figured the food was good. The owners and staff were fine but the food was not good at all. We have eaten at a lot of Mexican places and this was way below par. Do not know... More

This was highly recommended by the locals in the area, so we tried it for dinner. The salsa bar was fun, the salsas were ok kind of watered down. The entrees we ordered were good, love the bean dip served with chips. My husband had the tamales and he loved them, I had the fajitas and they were good, reasonably... More

Went here with my son and a few of his classmates. What a wonderful atmosphere with a very Mexican feel. The chips and salsa mixes were very tasty as were the entrees. We were impressed too with the reasonable prices. Definitely going there again.

Elena and Ole are superb restaurateurs!! Their food is exceptionally fresh! Servers are attentive and always get your order correct. Plenty of parking. A great space on back patio by the creek for small events/groups. Best fresh guacamole and salsa bar !! My favorites are mushrooms & spinach quesadilla or the fish tacos. Excellent prices too.

I've been eating at Ole's for over 9 years now. This is a family owned business that strives to serve fresh ingredients. There are a few different dishes I usually get and they've tasted amazing every time! There is both indoor and outdoor seating, with the outdoor seating being seasonal. Prices are great for the amount of food you get.

We hit Ole's Guacamoles every time we are in Black Mountain. They used to be located where Fresh Pizza is now. We really love trying their different salsas. They are are located in 2 places and you serve yourself. They are made fresh daily and range from really hot to mild. They serve you bean dip and chips as well.... More

Ole's is a great place for lunch or dinner. It's perfect for families with children or a friends get-together. The food is delicious beginning with hot chips and an array of salsas from the salsa bar and just about any item on the menu. Add to that a cold mug of beer and it's hard to beat. I'm from Texas...
