Nice surprise in Barstow!

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!

Dinner style setting, relaxed atmosphere, friendly and fast service. Our food was hot and very good. Does not stay open very late so get there early!

If traveling through Barstow, Lola's is a MUST stop. Authentic Mexican cuisine served by friendly, happy faces. Order at register, then find a table where they will bring you chips, salsa and your order, all hot and fresh! The restaurant is small but contrary to the Yelp posts, I had no trouble locating it (its in an 'L' shaped strip-mall,... More

We saw Lola's Kitchen on TripAdvisor and it was marked #1 so we decided to give it a try. So happy we did. We got there 15 min before closing and they were more then accommodating for us and did not rush us out of there to finish up our meal. The meal was so very tasty and home cooked,... More

It's not much on atmosphere, and it's quite small, but the food is delicious. Starting with the chips and salsa..excellent. I had the sopas (unfortunately, I can't find the photo). They were extremely scrumptious! I wish there was a Lola's near me so I could get the food to go, lol. But, in fact, I would still dine in if... More

If you want a quick "to go" meal or need a few minutes to relax and enjoy a good Mexican meal, Lola's is the place. Quaint, clean and always delicious. Albert does a great job in decorating, very nice!

We had an excellent lunch at Lola's Kitchen in Barstow. Food was tasty, fresh and homemade in the best sense of the word. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would eat there again any time I'm going through Barstow. The restaurant is in the Von's "plaza" on the south side of Main Street, west of the I-15 interchange.

Stopped here for breakfast on our way back to Arizona since it was one of the few places open very early in the morning and it had great reviews on Yelp. The restaurant is located in a strip mall and the atmosphere is lacking in warmth, both figuratively and literally (I had to get a big winter coat to wear... More
