Lola's is a 50's style diner that offers good food at reasonable prices. Good selection to choose from. Service can sometimes be slow when things get busy.

Lola's had left me a bit unimpressed I'm sad to say. The atmosphere is great and the staff are nice and helpful but the food left something to be improved, Bland and took a long time to arrive.

Visited it a few times when it opened and when we stayed in Park Ridge. Friendly and efficient service. Nothing spectacular stuck out, but nothing wrong with that.

Stopped for breakfast here for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised with the 50's decor, good service, and delicious food. All fresh vegetables in our omelettes, coffee tasted great, and pancakes were delicious. Can't wait to come back for dinner soon!

Had some time to kill before a meeting. Wanted a local place for breakfast and found this. Fun ambiance, friendly waitress, good food. Had the spinach omelet. Large portion but a bit heavy on the butter or cooking oil. Potato were ok. Would get fruit next time. Unlimited coffee and good oj. All in all a good place for breakfast.

We order lunches here at least once a month. The food is great and at very reasonable prices. Also a good place to come in solo or with a group of people!

Friendly neighborhood diner, which serves good comfort food at a reasonable price. I had their Reuben sandwich and it was one of the better Reuben sandwiches I've had. Same goes with their cole slaw. The only average item was their fries. Other members of my family had ordered breakfast and they all enjoyed their meal.

Apparently the waitress who served me didn't understand me. I asked for a hot turkey and a soup but I was served soup followed by a cold turkey sandwich. The misunderstanding was rectified and I did get what I ordered. Both the soup and the hot sandwich were good but not worth a 20 minute drive from my home.

If you want good food, friendly atmosphere at reasonable prices, this is the spot. Service is usually very good but can be slow during very busy times, But worth the wait.
