My best friend & I were in Buffalo Gap to celebrate our 60th bd's. We stopped in Lola's for dinner. It was just us two & her. LOLA has to stand for Laugh Out Loud A lot. She sat at table near us & told us about celebrities that visited there. One had an attitude and she told him to... More

A fun & unique restaurant that caters to women ! It's a relaxing atmosphere that makes you feel like you're simply visiting a relative for a home cooked meal . Thank you Lola! You remind me of my favorite Tia😊

Decided to check this place out from a suggestion and glad we did. The green enchiladas w pintos and fried bread was delicious! Lola was a hoot, a small place w a lot of character. Definitely a return visit.

We moved to Buffalo Gap almost two years ago and for whatever reason, Lola's is the last local restaurant we tried. But, we went today and the food was so good that we left wondering why we didn't come sooner! The cheese enchiladas were possibly the best I've ever had and the Navajo fry bread was amazing! Lola did visit... More

Great place hands down. Be careful with the "rules". Home cooked Mexican food and friendly place. The fry bread is amazing.

Well, the reviews we're wrong. Awesome Mexican food! Flavor galore! And spice was added by Lola and other patrons and it was just like a family reunion. I ordered tacos which were delicious and they came with a magnificant piece of fry bread. Mmmmm. I wish Lola would move to Seattle

Lola was great. Very good food she treats you like family. Very small place. Don't underestimate a hole in the wall.....

If you're like me, you go to restaurants as much for the atmosphere as the food. If the food is great but there's no ambience, I can't enjoy it. If the setting is just right, and the food only palatable, it's not the end of the world. But if both are slam dunks, you've got not only a great meal,... More

We started going to Lola's twelve years ago, and we still eat there several times a year. It's a bit like going home! Go in, get your drinks, and chips and place your order with Lola. She always has a smile and if she has time to sit down, she'd love to chat with you! She always has my boys... More

The waitress, cook and dishwasher was all the same person, Lola. She did have help but once she found out it was our first time, she wanted to talk with us. The food was good and very reasonably priced.
