Good food at reasonable prices. If the food you ordered doesn't meet your expectations,tell them they will replace it with something else.

While heading to Rosemont from Park Ridge we made a turn from Dee and Oakton we turned on Nurse and found Lola's. What a great find. The food & service was very good. Portions were generous. We will be back for other options from the menu.

Kitschy decorated retro diner they have display cases in middle of restaurant with fun knick knacks. Fun, bright, energetic colors! They have 3 specials and home made soup daily. Coffee cup does not go empty. Portions are generous. Don't leave hungry. Enjoyed my chorizo omelette- not too spicy. Came with toast and got fruit (an upcharge) instead of hash browns.... More

Kitchy little diner. Makes you feel like you are on set of the old Happy Days tv show. Decent food at a fair price. Coffee service was biggest complaint. My fiance was asked he wanted more coffee. He said no so i wasn't even asked. And i did want another cup.

Lola's is a 50's style diner that offers good food at reasonable prices. Good selection to choose from. Service can sometimes be slow when things get busy.

Lola's had left me a bit unimpressed I'm sad to say. The atmosphere is great and the staff are nice and helpful but the food left something to be improved, Bland and took a long time to arrive.

Visited it a few times when it opened and when we stayed in Park Ridge. Friendly and efficient service. Nothing spectacular stuck out, but nothing wrong with that.

Stopped for breakfast here for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised with the 50's decor, good service, and delicious food. All fresh vegetables in our omelettes, coffee tasted great, and pancakes were delicious. Can't wait to come back for dinner soon!

Had some time to kill before a meeting. Wanted a local place for breakfast and found this. Fun ambiance, friendly waitress, good food. Had the spinach omelet. Large portion but a bit heavy on the butter or cooking oil. Potato were ok. Would get fruit next time. Unlimited coffee and good oj. All in all a good place for breakfast.

We order lunches here at least once a month. The food is great and at very reasonable prices. Also a good place to come in solo or with a group of people!
