Went to Lola's because of their rating on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Excellent food! We were traveling from Phoenix to San Jose and decided to stop there for lunch.

We were driving from Vegas to LAX and needed to fuel up at Barstow. We were hungry and TripAdvisor pointed out that Lola's was the best place to go. The restaurant itself is located in a shopping centre on the main street. We entered and the aroma was lovely, the food was authentic and we enjoyed our dishes, especially the... More

This little hole in the wall is in a strip mall, and closes at 7:30. the family women do the cooking. It is NOT fancy at all. The food was fine, not unusual or outstanding, but certainly good enough.

Stopped in Barstow after a long day of driving and checked with the hotel clerk as to 'a great Mexican restaurant'. She, herself, was of Mexican descent and immediately said, "if I'm not eating my moms, I go to Lola's". So, off we went! The restaurant is in a kinda strip mall and is truly a tiny place. The are...

Authentic, fresh, flavorful, clean. We were driving through and decided to stay the night. Looked around for a good restaurant. Found this little jewel.

Cute small place in a strip mall with only a few tables. Very good food prepared fresh to order. This is a family operated restaurant & the portions are large. The food is prepared the old fashioned way.

My friends and I had lunch here on Wednesday. I had the California burrito (which was interesting as the first time I've had a burrito with french fries in it). The burrito was pretty good but nothing special. The restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall type establishment within a grocery anchored retail center. Nothing special about the decor. A bit fast-food type... More
