A great little place to stop either on your to or from Las Vegas. Clean, friendly and warm atmosphere. The food DELICIOUS. And I am not a big Mexican food lover. I believe Lola's Kitchen is a family run restaurant. You order at the counter and pick it up, the portions are large and filling. My husband and I couldn't... More

Did not live up to expectations. GOOD: Prices were good but portions small. Service fast. BAD: Perfunctory cashier (no table service). Noisy. Very small. Smallest bowl of chips ever.

Our order was not what we thought it was going to be, yet it was good except for the fact I requested NO jalapenos and got them anyway.

We live in Las Vegas and everytime we pass through Barstow we have to stop at Lola's. What a great find in a strip mall. Food is just great and consistant. Just a few blocks off 15 so its not out of the way when passing through. Very friendly too. Just don't fill up on the chips and salsa, your... More

I love Lolas, when I worked in barstow I would eat here at least 1 to 2 times a week. I like the burrito. For some reason my order was always messed up over the phone but when I would go in there wasn't a problem. But i liked everything. would even bring back food to Fort irwin and the... More

They brought us as many chips and salsa for free as we wanted them, so that was really nice. The food was good, the beans and rice were not fresh as they came from warmers who knows how long they were sitting. All in all, its a typical mexican restaurant hyped up because there is nothing else worth eating in... More

Traveling through Barstow and chose Lola's based on Trip Advisor reviews. Lola's did not disappoint! The Pork Verde was fantastic and my husband is still raving about his Chili Relleno. It's worth looking for in the Von's parking lot.

I've enjoyed Lola's flavorful dishes many times in the past. However, I had never been in on a Thursday. Thursday is the one day mole is on the menu. I ordered it, and was pleased to find Lola's mole was as good as I had been told. I plan to return on future Thursdays.

I would never have found this place if not for reviews on Trip Advisor, and it wasn't easy finding it with the reviews the address and everything else. It's in a tiny location in a strip mall, several people came in and left because there wasn't room for them while we were there. You get a place to sit, go... More
