Someone said don't blink or you'll miss it. Here is the secret. It's in the Von's shopping center. Worth driving past twice to find it. Small and cozy. I had the chiliquilles with eggs and steak. Omg so good. Better than Cabo. Great price, huge portion amazing flavor. Will not stop at lenwood rd any more. Sorry about the bite... More

We've been on the road for 3 weeks and this is the best meal we have had. Cute place with excellent Mexican food. I had the peppered steak and my husband had the chicken enchiladas verde and they were both excellent. Great salsa too!

First--there are vegetarian choices. Just look for items with "plain beans" as an option. We stopped on a road trip and had the sopes and cheese quesadilla. Both were excellent. The salsa with the chips is both spicy and flavorful (and they bring more if you like!). The atmosphere and decor is quaint and quirky, and it's clearly family run... More

We have been road-tripping from Seattle down the west coast to San Diego and now across to Las Vegas. Lola's kitchen was the best Mexican we've had so far. The owner and staff are so welcoming and accommodating, we ordered off the menu all being vegetarian. An absolute must for travelers passing by!

We found Lola's as a top pick on line, called in an order, and it was waiting when we arrived. The recommendations over the phone were authentic, healthy, and very good. We had the chile verde salads. Service was very friendly and seemed to be family owned and operated.

We stopped at Lola's because it was rated #1 on Trip Advisor and it happened to be close to our hotel. We went to the counter to order and the food was brought very quickly. My tacos were delicious with just enough "bite". Lola's deserves it's good scores!

Lola's is a local stop for good Mexican home cooking. I love their tacos! They also have good burritos and just a bout anything else you might want.

While driving through and needing lunch Lola's came up on top for Barstow restaurants and is deserving of the number one spot. First, the chips are homemade and amazing! The salsa was spicy and tasty; the torta messy and amazing; a chicken flauta ordered off menu was phenomenal; finally, Lola's green sauce was crazy delicious. Lola's kitchen was well worth... More

This is as good as the reviews claim! Even better! The food was amazing and the ambiance of this little place was so charming. My family loved it so much, we had to take a family picture with Ms Lola herself! GREAT FOOD and even better staff! This is a must!
