On our way home via I-86 we pulled into Olean looking for dinner. After looking online for ideas we decided to try this place on the main drag. It was surprisingly busy on an early Sunday evening. Once seated we were overwhelmed by what has...More

The food is fantastic, the servers are nice, and they are super fast! Usually have about a 10 minute wait in between ordering and getting our food. Fun and festive!

Read many of the "amazing" reviews and decided to try this restaurant while in Olean for business. Average Mexican food. I got the chimichanga, which came with rice and refried beans (plus the complimentary chips and salsa). Chimichanga was good - not crispy, too much...More
