Call ahead to be sure Moma Lola is there. She's a terrific cook and it's not worth going if she's not there

We were so disappointed because everyone... More

There is only one. She's amazing and I am so glad and honored that my son and I were introduced to her and her establishment while on Big Corn. The restaurant itself has a 180 degree view of the ocean. Once you get past the bumpy road to get there, the view and ocean breezes are well worth it. My... More
