I was able to visit twice this trip. Have to admit this was my first stop when I got to town. First meal was delicious cheese enchiladas, hubby had a Carne asada torta. The next time I had tacos abs he had a breakfast burrito. Both times were fantastic! On my way back to Texas now and can't wait until... More

Been to Lola's numerous times - burritos are awesome. Atmosphere is great, employees are great. Best place for Mexican food in Barstow IMO...love this place. It's easy to miss tho as it's located in the Von's shopping center next door to a pawn shop. Don't let the exterior fool you!

Great little Mexican restaurant located next to a Pawn Shop in a strip mall. We dropped in about 45 minutes prior to closing and found a steady stream of customers arriving the entire time we were there. We had Carne Asada tacos and would highly recommend them! Order at the counter and your food is delivered to your table along... More

The food here is amazing! Had heard good things from Trip Advisor so had dinner here on a stop over from San Fran to Vegas. It's so cheap and so tasty. If I lived in Barstow I'd be here every time I wanted Mexican! Tortilla chips and salsa to start (complimentary). Salsa is fiery hot and tasty. I had shredded... More

Lola's great for an early breakfast burrito, they open at 4am. It's affordable and great food. It's a good place to grab a bite on the way to Vegas.

Came here for my son's 6th birthday because barstow isn't ideal regarding restaurant selection. I am very impressed with the price, portion sizes, and taste. We spent $30 for 2 adults and 2 children but went home with enough left overs for lunch the next day, we could have easily split a couple of dishes and spent $15 instead. Warning,... More

Found out about this spot from locals when I moved here. I never would have found it otherwise as it is inconspicuously tucked into a shopping plaza. This is just great, fresh, family-prepared Mexican food. I recommend nachos if you're really hungry!

This hole in the wall in a strip mall serves decent inexpensive Mexican food at very reasonable prices (two people for under $20 including tip). I'm not sure that I agree with tripadvisor's #1 rating but that may be because Barstow does not have that much to offer.

Stopped in while traveling based on the reviews. Great food, great service. Don't let the strip mall storefront fool you - this place is a gem in Barstow.

We have been through Barstow several times in the last couple years. Really wanted to try this place but we have arrived in Barstow on Sundays, when Lola's is closed. It's OK. I liked other Mexican restaurants better. The chicken enchiladas were good but the chips and salsa were not. Salsa just thin red sauce and very hot. Did not... More
