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

We stopped to eat lunch on the way home from Vegas. Quick, clean and delicious. The staff is very friendly and made us feel welcome. They are open from 4 am and close at 7:30 pm. We ate the verde enchiladas and crispy tacos but everything looked yummy. We will be back! They also have a large breakfast menu and... More

Highly recommended by "Bindi" at the Rodeway Inn motel just across the street. We walked over there and found this small eating establishment which was quite crowded. We could see that this place was a real authentic Mexican Restaurant and not one of those 'chain' places. The welcome we received when we entered made us very excited to be there... More

We stopped here for a late lunch based on Trip Advisor ratings. It was packed with a diverse clientele including local policemen. My husband had an enormous bean and shredded beef burrito while I relished ordering two sopes, one chicken and the other potatoes and chorizo. Oh my! We ate without uttering a word because it was all so delicious.... More

Being from Texas, I'm pretty picky about my Mexican food, so even with good reviews I was unsure. Lola's did not disappoint. From the Gloria's special to carne asada burrito, the #15 and the chicken flauta , everything was good. We all sampled each other's dishes. Friendly owner, cozy setting, clean bathrooms. I will definitely come back next time I'm... More
