Love Cafe Ole . Went with friends from work for lunch. The taco bowl and chips great. Good value and the taco salad is very filling.

Food is always consistent and delicious. Whether it is work or just on my own, I love to eat in or carry out.

Been coming here for years. Love the fish tacos. David or his wife made better version back in the day, but they currently aren't bad. Chips, salsa very good. I like their nachos a lot. Definitely recommend Cafe Ole.

I come here occasionally for lunch with co-workers and one of their standout dishes are their fish tacos. They're just not as good as they used to be and I've noticed that with other items here. I usually rave about their standards like the fish tacos, quesadillas, and burritos. I think they've come down a little in their quality. That... More

We were visiting from the west coast and this place has good, reliable food. Stopped in for a quick lunch before heading out on a walk to tour the city. Portions were awesome, and the staff were very friendly.

The taco salad is the best item here! In fact more people go just for the taco salad then anything else! The restaurant is not clean in the dining areas but the kitchen area does seem to stay clean. Mary is the most fabulous person there! She takes pride in her return customers and always has a smile on her... More

Cafe Ole etiquette says stand in line to order, then get your table and wait for Mary to holler your order number! The fish tacos, blackened or not, are yummy, so is the vegetarian taco - add guac! The burrito is HUGE. And the black bean quesadilla is my favorite. Don't forget to order the chips if they don't come... More

Love this little dive. The fish tacos are the best. And don't forget the salsa for the chips! Best part of the workday is lunch here.

I ordered a burrito for lunch and although it was really stuffed full, it was rather tasteless, very bland with little seasoning. But the prices are affordable, the service is exceptionally fast, and the chips were good, so it's a nice spot to catch lunch every now and then if you're short on time and just want an average meal.

I have been frequenting this restaurant at lunch for years. While it has changed hands, they still offer great somewhat Mexican fare here. The number one thing on the menu is there fish tacos. They have a special fruit compote with a black and tilapia for the tacos that can't be beat. Since they changed hands, though, they don't offer... More
