The food is great!! Customer service is excellent!! I have a very picky daughter and they went over and beyond to make sure she didn't leave hungry!! Chips and hot sauce is very authentic! Love this place! Too bad they are not located in Texas!!

We were on our way home from Vegas, and Lola's was recommended to us by one of the women at the Starbuck's. Lola's can be off-putting from the outside. In a grocery store shopping center with a mirrored front window (meaning, you can't see in), it doesn't look like much. But the staff is friendly, the food is authentic and... More

Noted here on Trip Advisor. Delicious, plentiful breakfast portions. The breakfast burritos are huge and filled up with eggs, potatoes, sausage, etc. We made the mistake of ordering three for the two of us. Needless to say we ate the leftovers on the road. One would easily serve two hungry travelers. The next time we came through we hesitantly ordered... More

I found this place with the help of Tripadvisor reviews. This place is truly a hidden gem. I would not have found it otherwise. It is located in the Von's Shopping Center and the outside is as plain as possible, nothing that really catches your eye. But once you open the doors with the reflective tint, you will see a... More

Had breakfast the other day at this charming spot in the Vons shopping center on Old Route 66 in central Barstow. The staff were the perfect blend of homey and professional. The menu was diverse and superlative. Fine dining has found it's way to Barstow, thanks be. Don't miss this grat place if you like good food.

This is simple: excellent Mexican food, fast service, great prices, kind staff, good portions. Done. It's informally run, much like a pizzeria where you order at the counter and they bring it to you. It was mobbed, we came around noon on a weekday. Also easy access for on and off freeway. Just go, you will not be sorry.

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
