Lola's Mexican Cuisine

We decided to try Lola's on the recommendation of a friend. It's a very cute restaurant with a nice comfortable feel. The service we received was excellent, and our server, as well as the entire staff, were friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, we did not care for the food at all.
The red salsa was hot (spicy) but lacking in flavor; and the green salsa had an off taste (almost fishy). The Guacamole had way to much diced cucumber and very little avocado. The taco meat was bland and dry. The sopes were "hockey puck" hard and impossible to cut. The carne asada was tough, thin and wizened. My tamale and enchilada were just ok.
Today's Lola's dinner gets one-half thumb up from the 3 Tubby Tummys.
