My husband and I love Mexican food and we're always looking for new places to try so that we don't get in a "rut." I have heard lots of good things about Casa Ole from people at work, so we decided to try them last night. From start to finish, we were impressed!
The chips and salsa arrived promptly after we were seated. The salsa had good flavor and their green sauce is some of the best I've ever had. I couldn't stop eating it, but I should have because the best was yet to come! We were with my parents and we all ordered the Casa Ole special which is a meal that includes a little bit of everything (enchiladas, tacos, tamales, and tostadas). We figured that was the way to go to get a feel for their food and so that we could get an idea about what to order next time. This entree is HUGE...so huge, in fact, that it is served on two different plates! Two people could easily share this meal and walk away satisfied. I was impressed by everything, but the tamales were what really stood out to me. I grew up in El Paso and we had a favorite place where we used to get tamales. I haven't been able to find anything else that compares, and these still don't "compare" but they are what has come the closest.
They have kid's meals as well with everything from quesadillas to chicken fingers. The portions were generous. They also have crayons and a menu for the kid's to color while they wait for their food. They don't have to wait long, though. We went on a Saturday night and we only had to wait about 15 minutes for our "first round" of food. The service was great. Our waitress was constantly checking up on us and refilling our drinks.
The food here is very inexpensive, especially when compared with other Mexican restaurants and when you consider the portion sizes! It was $7.99 for the meal that we ordered. We also had a $5 off coupon from the Entertainment book. It was one of the cheapest nights out we've had in awhile and everyone walked away stuffed. You should be aware that this location doesn't take any internet printed coupons.
I would definitely go back here in a heartbeat! It's worth the drive for us!
