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

I love their chicken enchiladas with green sauce. The ladies are very nice, the restaurant is small but nicely decorated and clean. The only things that could be improved are 1) the prices fluctuate (it says so on the menu but this was a few months ago so that may have changed by now) - it would be good to... More

Obviously a well loved spot by locals and owners. Very small, but so worth it. Chile rellano was best I've ever had. Lola's is a gem to experience!

We were driving around Barstow and passed Lola's. Husband really liked the look of the place. We walked in and felt at home from that moment on; everyone so welcoming. Chile Rellano and Chicken Enchilada were winners!
