Lola Coastal Mexican Restaurant Review

Sitting outside above the glowing lights of downtown Denver, my best friend and I nibbled on delicious small plates at one of the cities hottest restaurants—Lola.  “Named one of the top five establishments to drink tequila in America by Food and Wine Magazine, LoLa has also become one of Denver’s most acclaimed dining destinations, serving cuisine inspired by Mexico’s coastal regions.”

This being the first time I visited Lola, I didn’t really know what to expect. A friend of mine who works at the beautiful restaurant told us that we had to try the guacamole—prepared fresh, table-side, for each guest. Being a specialist in coastal Mexican cuisine, Lola offers something to tickle every guest’s taste buds. 5280 Magazine Chef of the Year and LoLa owner, Jamey Fader, prepares the menu personally, based on the season, with dishes including but not limited to Lobster Quesadillas, Black Mussels, Shrimp Albondigas, Achiote Half Chicken, and the critically acclaimed Civiche Bar!

A great way to try Lola before you beg your boyfriend to take you there on a date is to come in for Happy Hour, which is all night on Mondays, Tuesdays- Fridays 4-6 PM, and 2:30- 5PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Lola offers half price on their specialty margaritas (which are made with 100% agave tequila, triple sec, and lime) and cocktails. They also offer discounted small plates and their famous tacos.

Located in beautiful Highlands Ranch, Colorado, Lola sits just above downtown Denver, providing a relaxing and enjoyable time for guests of all kinds. Come in and experience what the talk is all about for yourself!
