We tried to visit there last night, a Saturday night, and they were closed already at 5:30!! Very disappointed! We wanted to get this place because of the prior reviews but wasn't given a chance. Who closes a Mexican restaurant at 4:30 on a Saturday!?

As we often pass through Barstow on our travels, it was nice to sit down at something other than the local fast food joints. This little restaurant, in the Von's shopping center, is, indeed, hard to spot, but is very close to the freeway on and off ramps. The place opens at 4 a.m., and, we were told, there is... More

We were staying at the Rodeway Inn across the street and looked through TripAdvisor for a recommendation. Along with the hotel owner, they suggested Lola's. The place is in a strip mall and the windows are reflective so you can't see anyone inside or not. We thought that needed to change to get people to come inside. It's a small... More

This place is hard to spot as it's small and tucked in a strip mall, the sign out on the road is also small. Maybe they are trying to keep it a secret! My wife really liked her chicken enchiladas, though the sauce they put on was a bit spicy hot for her liking. The sauce that is served with... More

Excellent food and was greeted with a big smile with great service. The place was packed - come and get it. And the best part, we met Lola.

We were traveling through the area returning to Oregon after a month in Arizona. We checked Trip Advisor for a good place to eat in Barstow, Ca. Lo Lo's was highly rated so we gave it a try. I ordered a pork flauta. It was a Huge disappointment; meat tasted old & dry. My husband had chicken soft tacos &... More

I have been gong to Lola's whenever I am in Barstow for years.During that time I have been a meat eater, a vegetarian, and now gluten free. Their beans have no gluten(though they look luscious and creamy) and you can just tell them what you want and they will be happy to make you a plate. Want just eggs and... More

Having skipped breakfast in Laughlin to get an early start to LA, we were quite hungry by the time we reached Barstow. My son found Lola's on his smart phone, and basis the reviews, was insistent that we try it. Located in a neat and clean strip mall storefront on the main drag, Lola's appears to have about as much... More

Based on other Trip Advisor reviews we gave Lola's a try for lunch and we were not not disappointed! My family of five stopped in after camping at Calico. It is in a strip mall and easy to miss and deceiving from the mirrored door entrance. The inside was bright, clean and bustling with activity. It is fairly small with... More
