This is probably my favorite Mexican restaurant on the planet. Not just for the amazing food but the amazing people as well. I can't tell you how nice it is to walk in to somewhere and have the people know your name. Great local spot.

Home style Mexican food! Wonderful food! The owners and staff are the best! Connie and Ofelia have owned humble store for years! A go to place in our local "Barrio" , that is the safest places in the world.

Lola's is the oldest consecutive business in Carlsbad and you don't stay in business that long without having great food. My favorite is the bean and cheese burrito, yum! The beans come for heaven, they are so smooth.
