“Really Let Down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

In much anticipation of a great mexican restaurant experience because all of the raves from friends, we decided to make Don Lolo's the mexican restaruant our choice for Cinco De Mayo this year. We were very let down. We got there right at their opening on a Saturday at noon. There were maybe 6 other people in the place. Firstly, it took longer than what it should to get our chips and hot sauce, then they were cold and stale. Secondly, the food seemed to take forever to be served and then it wasn't very good. I don't know if it was an off day for them, but we probably won't return when there are so many more restaurants of this type in the area where we have had a good experience.

“Good food, sit by the window”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Our children ordered cheese dip and taco. I had beef burrito with rice and beans. We sat by the window and looked out at historic down town Ringgold. The wait staff were kind and friendly. We enjoyed our dinner.

“Mexican in a little Southern town!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

You can't go wrong if you have a taste for Mexican food in Ringgold, Ga. The owner and staff are fantastic and get to know us "regulars" and treat us with extra sauces and chips every time we go in. They are very family friendly and pay attention to all the children in our group. You can stay as long as needed and they just keep on filling up your drinks!!

“Good food but HORRIBLE service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

First time I've ever eaten here, husband has always lived in ringgold so I was wanting to try it. Not busy at all, we ate around 430. It was just my husband and I and then a family of 4 in the whole restaraunt. Had to wait on drinks for about 6 minutes. I kept looking around for our waiter because 15 minutes had gone by and we still hadn't placed our order. We and the other family were in the front of the restaurant and the 5 waiters were all in the back talking, writing on their styrofoam cups and watching tv. The waiter brought the family of 4's check and the lady asked where her kids ice cream was and the waiter said oh were out. The mom said so your just now telling me this? The waiter proceeded to say well I mean if you want it that bad I can go to the store for you. Very rude and unprofessional! Try better next time if there is one!
