Locally owned and loved, this second location of Lola’s is head and shoulders above any other eatery in this food desert location in the north part of Summerlin. The bronzed shrimp and grits is a dish they’re known for. It’s an excellent entree with five large shrimp atop cheesy and creamy gouda grits surrounded by a spicy ragout full of bold flavored andouille sausage and mushrooms. The crab cake platter was decent and like most other items here has some of that cajun heat throughout every bite. They’re pan fried with little filler but also lack the big jumbo lump pieces of crab that make crab cakes meaty.
Desserts are quite good. The signature bananas foster bread pudding is large enough to share. It’s a massive brick of custard soaked, creamy bread atop caramelized bananas and covered with a sugary sweet sauce. The sweet potato pecan pie was a balanced display of sweetness with a crust that’s thin and flaky.
Given the dearth of dining spots within a five mile radius, there is no doubt one should dine here when in the area. Their cajun fare is somewhat unique to the city and based on the execution of dishes I’ve had, I can see why they’ve been so popular for so long.
