The food is really, really good! It's been a week and a half since we've been there and were in search of a good meal after spending the morning driving from Las Vegas, where we did NOT have breakfast. We had the huevos and we could not have been more pleased. I'm so glad we found this place.

We are from Virginia and most of the Mexican food we get just isn't that good. I had read about Lola's on Trip Advisor, the reviews were right. Friendly atmosphere and great food. What else do you need?

If you have a craving for authentic homemade Mexican Food, this is your place. This is a tiny little dive in the Vons shopping center, but don't let that fool you. The food is excellent. They have just about everything. Beans, Rice, Red n Green Chili, Menudo, dinner plates such as Enchiladas, Taquitos, Tacos, Flatas. Just like any other "Mexican... More

This place is amazing, the food is always fresh and I'm not a lard expert (contrary to my elementary school buddies jokes) but I think they use very little grease or lard. The carne Asada plate here is really good and it comes with a sopes or torta and they use that crumbly delicious Mexican white cheese. The Asada is... More

We were told this place was very good and it did not disappoint. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table. The staff are very helpful and friendly and work very hard. The food came out quickly and was hot fresh and tasty. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere is good.

This is a small little place in a strip mall, so not much on ambiance, but the food was pretty good but nothing fantastic. Just a decent meal at a decent price, you order at the counter and they bring the food out to you.

This was the best Mexican food I've ever had hands down, and on top of that, the service was quick. Food came out hot and fresh! We ate here based on tripadvisor reviews and are glad that we did. One of the reviews mentioned that the salsa was a low point for them. I'm not exactly sure of the method... More

This is a great unassuming little spot in a run-down strip mall. The location is the only complaint I have, it's not a place I would find myself late at night. However the food is great, and I felt comfortable there during the day with my young family. They weren't very busy and the service was pleasant and quick. I... More

Went in on Thursday a little after one pm. We were only the second party in the restaurant. Food arrived promptly and within a few minutes the restaurant had only two tables available. It is drop dead outstanding to come in in TA ahead of In -N-Out and well deserved. We are only in Barstow for two days. Thanks TA... More
