My husband and I were in Barstow for only one night and decided to try Lola's since it was number one on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all. My husband had the shredded beef burrito and I had the taco salad. Both meals were fantastic. We were also served complimentary chips and salsa before the meal. The servings were... More

Take it from someone who knows Mexican Lola's Kitchen is hard to beat. Opens EARLY 4AM! So if you are on your way to or from Vegas and haven't had a bite to eat stop off the freeway and head toward the VONS shopping center! You will be glad you did!

This is an okay place to eat, but nothing special. Our table was dirty, but clean fairly soon after we sat down. The food was typical Mexican fare, but nothing I can't get just as good somewhere else. After seeing the review, I was hoping for something much better.

It is a humble spot in a strip mall where you order at the counter and then find your seat. Nothing fancy, but yummy and perfectly prepared. Very nice people.... More

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
