On our way back from Shack's Beach, we stopped to try the Peanut Butter Burger I had read about. My husband and I shared it, as we had already eaten lunch at 1 PM. They opened at 3 the day we were there, Friday. Interesting taste. Not sure it will become one of our regular meals at home, but I... More

We were fortunate to be staying nearby, came for drinks and happily ate here on two separate nights. We would gladly have returned, but Ola Lola's was closed for the rest of our short stay. This place was exactly what I had been looking for: friendly service, great drinks and delicious food. The prices were very reasonable. As mentioned in... More

We tried Ola Lola's because it was the only place we could find any takeout food in Isabela at 9pm one evening, and wow, were we happy we did! The peanut butter burger (it's not just the peanut butter, but the spices they use to mix with that flavor) was the most uniquely amazing burger I've ever had. We went... More

Well this place was my favorite! I was told to try the Peanut Butter Burger...which did not sound like a good combination...but I am so glad I tried it...it was delicious!!! They also have the best homemade chips and Salsa in town. So glad we stopped in for dinner!

In the middle of nowhere but on the way to everywhere. Very laid back atmosphere. Good drinks. Good food. The peanut butter burger is "odd" but a good kind of odd. Great place to check out. John is a great host and full of local knowledge.

This is a pretty nice restaurant on the road to Playa Shacks. The atmosphere was nice an there are horses right across the road. The crab dip and peanut butter burger were very good, but the crab dip and the piña colada were rather pricey. Overall, though, I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

Ola Lola's is a meeting spot at Playa Shacks for the expatriate crowd with a friendly proprietor, a very nice setting decent bar food and an array of beers you don't get anywhere else in Isabella. Victory, Abita good stuff
