Just passing through town

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!

A group of us dropped into Lola's for lunch after reading the reviews on trip advisor. It was certainly worth the visit. The food was clean, authentic and tasty. The ladies were friendly and accomodating for a big group. The only drawback is that it is a small premises. I am sure they would fill it up if they moved... More

Stopped in on the way to San Diego. We will plan to stop on the way home! Great food, accommodating owners and the chile quillas were wonderful. Highly recommend the carne asada.

We stopped on our way from the grand canyon and we are so glad we did. Very good, fast and whimsical. Give it a try, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

We had the California burrito, chile verde, chicken tostada and a cheese quesadilla and it was all fantastic! Great service, they moved tables around to accommodate our party of 6, don't be concerned about the strip mall location the food truly is amazing!

We waited, at least, 10 minutes at the entrance. Nobody took notice of us. As stated, it is a kitchen, not a restaurant. A few tables. Not friendly waiters. I asked for the wine list. No wine (or beer available). The food is probably good, but it is not “gezellig” (an untranslatable Dutch word). I will not go there again.
