The food at both the Exeter and Hampton location is fabulous! Super good and fresh Mexican that is not salty and full of unnatural stuff. You feel good after eating there. Great menu, casual dining. The staff in Hampton is very friendly and helpful, Exeter is not as friendly and seems impatient every time I go there.

A favorite with Phillips Exeter Academy Olas brings a little of Mexico to New Hampshire. Prepare to wait in a line that extend out into the cold of northern New England especially when the students are out but it will be worth the wait.

We are locals and always enjoy eating at Las Olas. They are almost always busy and have fresh food. The menu is simple but never disappoints.

I spent the Summer in Exeter and couldn't have enough of this place.. The chicken nachos are amazing. I live in Puerto Rico and certainly wish to come back someday

This is a local favorite for people in the area. It is very casual. You go up to the counter and order from a good selection of dishes. I usually like to sit and be served but the food is good and they sell beer!

My coworkers and I were going to go to a different Mexican restaurant in Exeter but it looked busy so we kept driving and found this place. The line was longer than I care for but it wasn't too bad - probably less than a 10 minute wait. The style was kinda like Qdoba where they assemble the food in... More

I've been there twice and we had the exact same [bad] experience both times. Both times were slightly off-peak (3pm and 5pm respectively). Whoever works the first station where they take the original order has the absolute worst attitude. The type where they act like they are doing you a favor by serving you. I've had a different person each... More

Sit down fast food restaurant with great employees! Several options and very affordable! Their tamales are a quick yummy bite.

I do love their food but find that I can get the same quality/ similar items for slightly less at other places.

Recently went to Las Olas while visiting family out in Exeter, New Hampshire and the food there is ten times better than any Mexican restaurant/fast food chain. My cousin's kids recommended we go there for lunch our first day there and at first I wasn't sure what type of restaurant it was because you had to go wait on line... More
