I try to only review quaint and interesting places...a bit off the beaten path or hard to find. Ollie's isn't exactly off the path, but it sure seems like a great place to stop by for a bite to eat during the day time. What I appreciated was the good humor and conviviality of those working there, plus a great... More

We heard so much about their fried turkey for Thanksgiving we decided to fork over the $50 this year to try one. What a mess!!!! The turkey was streight out of the movie Christmas Vacation. It was so overdone and dry it was like turkey jerky. The legs and wings were impossible to even try to eat. We carved out... More

From catered formal dinners to burgers Ollie's is the place to go. I have used Ollie's for many fundraisers and for my Thanksgiving dinner. They have never failed us. A must try.

Forget what Ollie's isnt. It isnt a sit down restaurant. There is no indoor seating, but they do have a small courtyard with covered outdoor seating. The food is simply tremendous here. I had the rib tips and they were well smoked and tender. However, the star was the mac and cheese. Ollie's put a spice in theirs and it... More

We have ordered a fried turkey for Thanksgiving from Ollies for several years. It is delicious, convenient, and a talking point at the table. Give it a try this year.

Ollie's Trolley is just outside the downtown in what's still called the West End. Most people drive and park on the street. I've had pulled pork sandwich; properly smoked, real barbeque, and you don't need sauce. Ditto the turkey tips, something I've just discovered. I don't know what they're tips from, but again, smoked on site and you can skip... More
