They close early so get here earlier. Full plates of good Mexican food prepared by authentic cooks. Spartan eatery. Good chicken plates, but lots of other combinations as well. Watch the flies. Locals know its good, that's why they eat here. Full and satisfied.

Lola's seats around 20-25. I mean it is small! I decided to try it based on other reviewers' impressions and I have to agree with the ratings: The food is GREAT! It may not be everyone's cup of tea, as you have to order at the cash register. They do deliver your food to the table hot, simple and delicious.... More

An upscale "walk up". A small place, with very tasteful decor. You have to get a menu, then go to the counter to order. Picking up your own table service. I was eating with a friend. Both of our meals were average. Satisfactory, but nothing to really want us to come back. Prices about average, maybe a little on the... More

My family and I frequent this establishment, not just because you get a lot of bang for your buck, but because it is the most legit Mexican cuisine restaurant in Barstow. I love the Carne Asada burrito, it's a life changer!

Lola's kitchen is a great little place. I had to report in at Fort Irwin at 0600h so to find a place that was open this early was great. I ordered the breakfast burrito with sausage, it was huge. I literally could have cut it in two and saved half for lunch... And I've never seen a bigger to go... More

I read the gluten free reviews of Lolas and decided to try it on a drive to Flagstaff from Los Angeles. I was looking for a gluten free lunch spot in Barstow and found Lolas recommended by others. I was traveling with my wife and three kids, two teens and a toddler. Everybody loved it. I can't say enough good... More

My experience with this restaurant is simply a take-out burrito. And I was blown away. It was the combo burrito with beans, cheese, and ground beef. Unfortunatly, though I paid extra for the cheese, they failed to add it. But I'm still giving them 5 stars because from what I see in the reviews, it's not common so I won't... More

For a couple of Aussies not used to Mexican food this little place is delightful. The lady who served us was bright and bubbly and she suggested a few various dishes to try. It was all thoroughly delicious with a few of the dishes a little spicy. Certainly a great little place to eat and next time we travel that... More

Seeing the glowing reviews and high ratings we ate at Lola's. I remain unimpressed. It's a small store-front eatery where you can't even get a side of vegetables. My litmus test for south of the border cuisine is the salsa. The salsa at Lola's is blender salsa. Blender salsa is like the easiest way to get the job out of... More
