Lola’s Mexican Kitchen (STM)

Lola’s Mexican Kitchen is located in Stamford and a quick look through the menu indicates an enormous selection of fairly traditional Mexican fare.

Arrive early and hang at the bar munching on $5 specials that include flautas and chipotle guacamole or head straight to your table. Start your meal with a plate of nachos or a combination platter and then move to a salad that may include avocado or chicken. With eight different fillings for tacos, four different burritos and chimichangas, a slew of enchiladas, all available with a vegetarian option. Then the fun begins with the house specialties that include steak, gambas, chilies rellenos, short ribs or salmon.

I am looking forward to trying Lola’s Mexican Kitchen.
