LOLO is a fairly new restaurant in Stillwater, opening this summer. And to be honest, we were a little afraid for them when we heard they were opening downtown. There’s already a serious number of restaurants downtown, and some of them are absolutely fabulous! We just weren’t sure whether this tiny little place would be able to compete with places like Marx and The Green Room (both fabulous). But we can honestly and sincerely tell you that this restaurant is not only holding its own, it is providing a much needed place for an important food item that has been seriously neglected here in Stillwater:
True, there are several places in Stillwater that serve burgers. Leo’s and PD Pappy’s immediately come to mind as burger-based businesses. But what if you want to eat a burger somewhere a bit more upscale? Or want the best burger you’ve ever eaten? Other restaurants have decent burgers, but none of them come even close to how good the burgers are at LOLO. And none of them have the sort of “vibe” LOLO has.
LOLO has a great balance between the casual burger place and the more upscale place you take a dinner date to. It’s classy, clean, unique, and just intimate enough for a date night, but not so quiet and fancy that it’s all awkward and formal. The kitchen is right out in the open, so you know it’s clean and your food is prepared well. If you go for lunch, you’ll probably be seated right away. At dinner, there can be a bit of a wait depending on what night you go. So be prepared for that.
Did we mention how great LOLO burgers are? Seriously; if you are looking for a good burger in Stillwater, go to LOLO. For real. And if you’re already in Stillwater, you might as well stop down as see us at our studio! We’d love to meet you!
