The owner is over friendly and too "cushie" with the clients. He recently did minor renovations and now is charging too much with less meat to the menu. He's substituting meat with too much rice. This is how good restaurants go down and out of business! His helpers sometimes cheat and charge full price for the daily specials so watch... More

I've only been to the Stoney Creek location. It has been enlarged to accommodate some tables to eat in. It's very busy at lunch time with the high school kids. The food was good. I had the chicken burrito which was very full with lots of chicken. A bit pricey.

Not sure where to go with this review. The food isn't horrible, but it's not amazing either it's okay. Ordered the steak burrito, which should be called the rice burrito because that's all I'm finding. The portion is decent for a 5.95 price point but I just dropped 10.00 with tax and I'm still a little hungry. Asked for lettuce... More

I don't live in Stoney Creek anymore, but visit a few times a year. I'm always sure to stop by and get a chicken quesadilla. I got one to go and ended up not eating it right way - even re-heated the next day it was still delicious. I would not call it "fast" food, expect 10-15 minutes or so... More

I ate at Ole on Locke some time ago. I was reminded of it by a friend today who tried both Ole on Locke and Ole near Gray Rd Stoney Creek. He seemed to agree with me about Locke St one, tho he says the Stoney Creek one is better. The thing that stood out the most to me was... More

The food is great... but Ron, the restaurant manager, talks wayyyyyyyy too much. They take forever to make burritos whenever he's there because he talks so much. He's too concerned telling customers how long it will take, but if he just started chopping and didn't depend on the two other gentlemen, he could have finished 10 orders by that time.... More

I've been to three other burrito places (1 in Burlington/2 in Hamilton) in the past and have always had a boring experience with the food. Totally forgettable with the meat being underseasoned. Decided to pop in here around early April 2015 and have probably been to the Stoney Creek location close to a dozen times. My food is always tasty... More
