We found this hotel while looking for gas in Barstow. It sits in a strip mall and at first glance you probably would not go in there, but it was delicious. Very small with limited seating buy worth squeezing in. Plus it serves breakfast. We had lunch which was amazing. Very authentic. Probably the best enchiladas I had in California... More

Went in for dinner. Minimal seating so we decided to take out. Simple, tasty food, served fast. Most was good but the pork in the chili verde was very dried out like it had been cooking all day at minimum. We tossed the pork out. We were traveling and were told this as the "best Mexican in the area" The... More

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...
