You won't be disappointed

Lola's has been the in town for several years, and is known as one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. If you like chili-quillas, you must try them with their carne Asada.

Barstow is most likely a stopover for most people in-between Vegas and LA. There are dozens of fast food chains to chose from but if you want authentic and local Mexican cuisine - go to Lola's. Hidden away in a strip mall with a slightly dodgy store front, the food is wonderful and service very welcoming. There were mostly locals... More

Ok, maybe I'm too picky, but I wasn't aware that they had a policy of charging extra for using my credit card. If there had been a prominent sign of this policy, I would have at least been able to make a choice of whether to order or not. Based on the preponderance of positive reviews, we most likely would...

Located in a strip mall next to a grocery store, this little place is easy to miss. But locals know it and love it. Big menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Not sophisticated at all, but quite tasty. Reasonable prices. Eat in or take out.

This is one truly authentic Mexican restaurant! It's like the home cooking of my two sister-in-laws. The salsa Verde pork is really outstanding and the shredded beef enchiladas too. My wife and I shared each and couldn't believe we found such a great place in Barstow. Their rice and beans were just as great. So plan a stop for breakfast,... More

This place was great! We stopped here very hungry and left very happy. I loved the food, my husband was basically licking his plate, it was great fresh food. My kids loved the chicken tacos with just chicken, they actually got a second order they liked them so much. I loved how they even had cucumber water, something so simple... More

Food was good but not overly impressive. Seating was hard to come by and area very loud. Ambiance very welcoming, though. Service was good.

Stopped here based on reviews. It's about a half mile off I15 on main street in Barstow. Lola's is located in a strip mall next to a pawn shop. Don't let any of that fool you. Inside it is clean. The food is excellent. The service is friendly and helpful. We are pleased we stopped here and will do so... More

Barstow is my hometown. A small town, but a wonderful place to grow up in. Lolas Kitchen is the definition of authentic Mexican food! Fresh, delicious and a great selection. Their chili verdi.... best you'll get anywhere. The chiliquilles dinner so good and plenty of food. This is a small restaurant but with a big menu with big tastes and... More
