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

While the menu is somewhat limited, the food is served fast and tastes excellent. I had a chicken torta, which was juicy and full of flavor. The chilis were just the right heat. My friend had the mole, which is only prepared one day of the week. It is homemade! If you want a quick lunch in Barstow, definitely visit... More

Stopped here en-route to Vegas from LA. Needed a quick meal and didn't want to stop in at a chain restaurant. Took us two laps of the car park to find it, as it looks pretty dodgy from the outside but trusted the trip advisor reviews. Inside we were greated by a really nice bloke who welcomed us and explained... More

We found out why this came up as number 1 on Trip Advisor for restaurants in Barstow. When you first drive up to the place you think - Is this really it?, but once inside you find out how great the food is. The place itself is not that big, so there is not a lot of seating. The food... More
