I like Lola's as an escape from the Tex-Mex we've come accustomed to. Tacos and Enchiladas are the way to go for this place. If you like a really simple nacho with just chips, beef, shredded cheese and lettuce then the $5 option is a...More

The tacos here are unbeatable! Get the tongue. Trust me. Don't argue. Don't be a pansy and say "eeewwww, yucky!" Get them. Right now. Thank me later. They also have homemade horchata and Mexican cokes! Love me some Lalos!

Freshly prepared Mexican street food in a quaint little storefront next to a busy street. You can snag a beer from the fridge while you wait for your food. Dine in or carry out. Yum!

If you want Mexican food that tastes closest to what you get in small city Mexico, and so different than the cheese rich Tex Mex common all over the US, Lalo's is the place. It is a small place with about 6 tables run by...More
