We stopped in to Lola's on our way through town based on the Trip Advisor reviews. It was as others have said. Good food, cute place, not expensive. What else could you want?

I am so glad I lunched here! I would definitely eat here if I ever pass Barstow again. The service was excellent, the food absolutely fabulous and I loved the spicy salsa. If you love Mexican food, you can't go wrong here!

Stopped on our way to Disneyland because we had read good reviews on Trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Great homemade Mexican food. Very good prices. Staff was great. Don't be deceived by the location.

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.
