This is a really great place. The area is a bit sketchy but Raoul the Owner makes you feel like family. My only drawback is no alcohol is served.

Not a fancy restaurant by any means but they serve delightful meals for a more than reasonable price. Went for a casual date there and was not disappointed! Love love love the beans and rice side!

First off, the food is excellent. I am a frequent customer since first trying this place a few months back. After seeing mixed reviews I thought I'd give it a try anyways and was not disappointed, my favorites are their tamales, carnitas and chorizo nachos. However if you're looking for a fancy upscale restaurant or your typical Americanized Mexican food... More

Have eaten at this hole in the all with solid non cliché Mexican food for a number of years. Nice warm friendly staff, simple oldish décor of a place. But we came for the food! Always something interesting and tasty, the special is different each time. Have nice soup and the kids is always happy. Love the sodas in the... More

Sullen service, cold food, no replacement offered, chilaquiles from the previous day heated in the microwave and nothing offered to make up for the fact that my husband's food was inedible. The people there didnt seem to care and we were very disappointed. Nothing authenticity Mexican about our meals and I lived in Mexico for 5 years (and my husband... More

We've eaten here many times. If your looking for perfect service and great atmosphere this is not the place to go. Go here if you want excellent Mexican food served by the owner. The one draw back is that Ole's does not serve alcohol.

This restaurant is tiny, and has no ambiance at all, but many of the menu items are more like what I would get in Mexico. The prices are great, I have a few of my faves (soup, enchiladas) and I love the Flan here.

Had dinner here last night - food good, not swimming in cheese and sauce. He makes his refried beans and adds a little of this and that to the rice. I had chilli relanos. Prices are so reasonable. It is just a small dining in place and ok atmosphere. Used to come here often when I lived this way, but... More

My favourite place in New West for real Mexican food. Prices are decent, food is great! If you are looking for a restaurant with nice decor this place isn't for you.

My friends and I love this place. The food is lovingly prepared and the chorizo is super tasty. This place doesn't have a lot of seats so make sure you call ahead if you have a larger party. Enjoy!
