“Full, Happy Tummies!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Based on other Trip Advisor reviews we gave Lola's a try for lunch and we were not not disappointed! My family of five stopped in after camping at Calico. It is in a strip mall and easy to miss and deceiving from the mirrored door entrance. The inside was bright, clean and bustling with activity. It is fairly small with seven to eight tables for people to sit. It was busy but not bad when we went, and a good deal of customers seemed to be locals which is a good sign. The ladies working were friendly and helpful. Plenty of Chips and salsa came quickly to our table. Order at the counter and get you own fountain drink, but food came out super fast. Everyone enjoyed their order- carne asada burrito, veggie burrito (not on the menu, but will make a basic burrito with no meat), beef taquitos, carnitas tacos, California burrito- it came up to 47.00$ with five drinks. Clean ladies restroom- single stall. The restaurant decor was three or four different themes that was bordering on a little too much, but not bad. Next time we are in Barstow I would not hesitate to go to Lola's again. I am sure if we lived here this would be our "Mexican" food place! Keep it up Lola's!

“Delicious Mexican Food, Low Prices”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This small, but cozy, Mexican Restaurant is located off of the main drag in Barstow, in a strip mall that is anchored by a Von's supermarket. We stopped in Barstow for lunch on our was home from Vegas. Lunch was delicious and we received our food shortly after placing our order. We noticed quite a few locals were eating there which is usually a good sign. The owner visited each of the tables a couple of times while we ate to ensure everyone was enjoying their food. No alcohol is served here but that's not a deterrent. We'd love to go back another time.

“Good stuff. ”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Small, family run, friendly and good. Did I mention fast? No beer however. Bit a big jug of ice water with cucumbers floating in it.

One place that I have to go to when anywhere near Barstow! Have the carne asada torta! I have never had anything there that wasn't awesome!
