We love Mexican food and Lola's in Long Beach is one of the best places we've ever tried. Even though it was around 7 pm and the place was hopping, we were served right away. Carne Asada was amazing, the rockfish was to die for, the server's beer choice was right on. I like Dos Equiis, which they didn't have... More

Met some local friends here for dinner while in Long Beach for a convention. The aioli sauce was like crack, none of us could get enough. I had the grilled shrimp, which was very good, and one of our friends got the rockfish, which was outstanding. Trendy spot in the middle of a string of consignment stores. Would definitely return....

Lola's, wow!!! Super food, awesome tasty appetizers, and the salsa, burns like fire. So, if you like it hot then Lola's is the salsa for you. Probably the best So Cali Mexican food, great staff who were fast and friendly. Only thing Lola's needs... T-shirts

I have been there many times with groups of people for lunch dinner. I have gone there because everyone says how great it is. I have gone there because this is the location that could accommodate a group. I have ordered many things from the menu hoping to find something interesting or tasty. I have been disappointed each and every... More

I was "upsold" on the butternut squash enchiladas and really liked them a lot. It was enough food for two. The green salsa was amazing. The side of guacamole was a little spendy, as is most of the menu. However, it was worth it. The atmosphere was nice and the neighborhood is really happening. I dined on a Thursday night... More

While the food here is good it seems overpriced for what you get. Service was good and they let us sit and visit without trying to rush us out. No complaint from any of us on the food which consisted of a Mexican salad, tamales and enchilada dish. Salsa was Med/hot.

Poorly executed and overly salty food. Scallops were salty enough to make your throat dry, vegan burrito was close to inedible and guacamole was not freshly prepared. Service was pleasant and the restaurant is cosy and well decorated in Day of the Dead motif.

You can't be mad at Lola's! The food here is what you'd expect ... Mexican food with an attitude and ambiance to match. Menu options were great and the food comes out relatively quickly. Centrally located in the hip / trendy area of Long Beach. The service was a bit questionable but that could have been a bad day, bad... More

The error that I made in ordering is the kind one makes when hungry. The chicken taquitos appetizer (Happy Hour) was enough for a whole meal; however, I also requested Biria Guadalajara. My wife had the Mexico City Street Corn which she very much enjoyed. Quantity was by no means an issue, but the food was a little bland for... More
