Can't count how many times the family has visited the downtown location over the years. Haven't been there in a while and decided to try the new location off of Eagle Rd. Wasn't really busy - Thursday night - so we got seated quickly. Place seemed pretty clean and the staff were nice. Overall the food was good, could have... More

We have eaten at Cafe Ole for years and always enjoyed the food. We love that the Casey family has owned the restaurant for years and that it is local. But last night was the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. We went the the Eagle Road location at 5:30 last night, Monday February 27th. We were... More

The cheese had no taste. The pineapple salsa was good -the chips were good - The service was good Won't be returning - for two people @ $20 you... More

Went here for dinner. It was not busy so we were seated right away. The hostess set our menus down on the table and left without really acknowledging us. The server was nice but very slow to provide service (things like an extra basket of chips for the kids, only one kids drink was brought out). The food was good... More

This is a nice clean facility, and the service and delivery of our orders was fast. I have to say I've definitely had better Mexican food here in Treasure Valley. We live here and we've eaten at both Cafe Ole locations over the years and always came away a little disappointed. We gave it a year and tried the Meridian... More

My boyfriend and I any here for lunch. He got the combo plate and a beer and I got rice and beans, our bill came out to only $16. His first Mexican food experience and it was pretty great. Amazing selection of salsas as well. Only down side was the server was a bit bland but I'd recommend it.

This was our first visit and we came away pleased with both our food and service. You can expect the typical American-style fare...I can recommend the Grande Burrito, a double burrito with one place inside another. All of our food was tasty, hot, and just what we expected. Our server did a fine job and we received our food promptly.... More

Not terribly authentic, but good food. Prompt service. Tasty sauces - I got the 'Azteca' enchilada plate to get a sampler. Good place for kids. For lord's sake PLEASE stop with the Happy Birthday song garbage. That went out in 1980...

This was our first trip to this location, and it was just as good as the Boise Towne Square location. Our waitress was extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable and the food was outstanding. I had the blue corn tacos and my wife had the chicken chimichangas and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We were with friends from work who... More

This food was less than average for Mexican. Really disappointed and left feeling unsatisfied. The service was good except for the server kept scratching his arms while talking with us. Just thinking of dead skin and dirty fingernails serving our food was unpleasant.
