“Good basic Mexican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Stopped for an early lunch, late breakfast. Good, basic cooking. The best part was that it was filled with locals who obviously love coming here. They had no trouble making a vegan burrito. The green and red chilli sauce was very good. A nice place to stop in the middle of nowhere. Don't expect elegant, expect local! I'd stop again.

“if you didn't know, you passed at great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We search trip advisor and decided to go for mexican cuisine. At the outside you woudn't expect a small restaurant with great mexican food. The inside is clean and colorful, but most important it serves great food. If you just want very tadty mexican food, go eat here.
Thats all you need to know.

“Great Homemade. Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stopped at Lola's on our return trip to Tucson. What a treat. My wife had the carnitas and I had the steak tacos. They were both very tasty and came with beans and rice and had a great homemade flavor. It turns out that Albert's mother has been doing the cooking for the past 18 years. We learned this from his father who retired 2 years ago. Albert is now running the place. Lola's is a small place where you order at the counter but the food trumps the informal setting.. The food ranks among the best Mexican I've had.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

This is one of a few places in Barstow that my kids and I can't live without. After being gone all summer we couldn't wait to eat here again! The food and service are both always awesome! :)

“Cute Cafe and Tasty Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Loved the decor inside this little gem. Even restrooms had nice decor.
Refreshing and colorful. Food was very good and reasonable in price. Not fancy but very good with large portions. We had carne asada burrito and carne asada torte. Both well prepared and tasty. Family run place with excellent and friendly service. A nice splash of color for Barstow.
