We started going to Lola's twelve years ago, and we still eat there several times a year. It's a bit like going home! Go in, get your drinks, and chips and place your order with Lola. She always has a smile and if she has time to sit down, she'd love to chat with you! She always has my boys help roll out the fry bread and deliver the food! They love to go to Lola's!

The waitress, cook and dishwasher was all the same person, Lola. She did have help but once she found out it was our first time, she wanted to talk with us. The food was good and very reasonably priced.

Tucked away the quaint little town of Buffalo Gap, in a little ancient store front is Lola's Mexican restaurant. Upon entering one doesn't quite know what to do as there is no receptionist or wait staff. Adjusting to the eclectic setting one finally spots a set of "rules" painted on the wall, but even after reading them, one is less than certain if they are serious rules or not. You haves to go to read them and decide for yourself. Eventually you figure out that you have to go back to the kitchen and help yourself to drinks and chips, and place your order with the cook. Of course, just because it is on the menu does not mean you can order it. Basically, Lola, the cook will tell you what you can order which is pretty much whatever she might be cooking.
I would say the food is average at best, but people must keep her in business just because it is such a unique and puzzling experience.

Awesome place! Very reasonable and the best Mexican food in or near Abilene Texas. Fun owners too! If you have a student at ACU, McMurry or Hardin Simmons you have to take them there for a nice treat.

This is a must visit and they recommended the green enchiladas (they have been the most popular item for 30 years).
