Cafe Ole in Las Vegas

Thanks to Cheryl Roy, who recommended Cafe Ole, on Fort Apache near Twain. As Cheryl indicated, the operation looks like an upscale Baja Fresh, but the food is much, much, superior. We tried all the dishes that Cheryl recommended -- the two soups (chile verde Vasquez and tortilla soup) and the pork salad. We loved the pork salad and the chile verde, bt the tortilla soup was a little underseasoned. We also tried a shredded pork burrito with red sauce and a cheese enchilada. The burrito was excellent, the enchilada gloppy and by far the weakest dish we tried; the red sauce was excellent.

The place is immaculately clean -- the kitchen area, the dining room, and even the restrooms. The staff bent over backwards to be accommodating, giving us extra plates and cups so that we could share, and they comped us three margarita pies -- a surprisingly tasty cheesecakey-like concoction. Cafe Ole has the look of a fast-food chain, albeit an upscale one, but has the caring and warmth of a family restaurant.
