    Stopped by Lola's the other night while in Minneapolis on a sorta "bachelor party" for my future bro-in-law. Had to wait about an hour and half for table for 6 of us, but as I kept saying "if you have to wait that long, must mean the food is good". And I was not wrong. Food was amazing. I had the Lady Za Za, and sampled slice from pretty much everyone else's. So was able to try the Sunnyside and My Sha Roni that were featured too. All were great. The sausage was beyond amazing and the crust was superb. Crust was so light and airy, that 48 hour proofing process really does it's job. We also tried the desserts and had they have awesome chocolate chip cookies, and I don't even know how to describe the ice cream. You can get it drizzled with olive oil and sea salt and according to one lady that was also waiting for table "is worth the drive from Canada just for the ice cream with olive oil and sea salt".
    Best part about going there that night was that afternoon before we headed there we were hanging out at the Fulton Brewery Taproom enjoying some beers, there was food truck serving outside and didn't notice right away (as was not there for food, but for beer) but was Andrew Zimmern's new AZ Canteen truck. We were about to leave brewery before figured it out then were joking about "wonder if Andrew is on the truck". As we were heading out though, who showed up to check on his new baby but the man himself, Andrew Zimmern! So got to shake his hand. then got thinking later that the DDD spot we were planning to hit up that night was none other then the one that he showed up to with Guy!

    I've been seeking out non-traditional pizzas and Lola's scored big time with their Korean BBQ pizza. In contrast, my wife had an "Old Reliable" (cheese and sauce only)...[shudder].
    At 5:00p.m. on a Sunday the place was already full and with a small crowd waiting to be seated. Friendly staff, too. The menu has several other unusual pizza combos which are sure to lure me back the next time I'm in the area.

    Live in the neighborhood and probably eat here every few weeks. It's that good! I recommend it to everyone that I know who is looking for a fabulous pizza. It's true, there is almost always a wait, but it's worth it. And now that they are open for lunch, it does make it easier to get in. Try the meatballs, some of the best I have ever tasted. And though the Sunnyside pizza is non-traditional with the soft eggs, I get it every time we go. Luckily, I am always with friends or family, and get to share what they ordered as well!

    After seeing it featured in a DDD episode, and before that, being rated #1 in City Pages top 10 pizzarias, my Wife & I had to pay Lola a visit. Wonderful neighborhood. Quaint. Busy resturant! WOW! Great seating area outside & in, but be prepared to wait your turn. This place is drowning in guests. Servers are all over the place, and they are staffed properly. Just too many people wanting the same thing, PIZZA! And what pizza it is. Well worth the wait. A seat at the bar gives you a look into the operation of making the pizza. Plus a direct look into the massive pizza "oven" they have. You'll notice it as soon as you walk through the door. Large & copper. With a wood fire burning inside it. The pizza was perfect. The right amount of toppings, sauce, and crispness you look for in a pizza. Flavortown City! Tough not to eat that last piece. We'll be back to try the many offerings they have.
