If they want to be an 'upscale diner', how about some waitresses, or @ least counter service, if you're sitting @ the counter, with staff walking in front of you? 59 Diner does a much better job, of creating a diner feel. Lola only has the design.
Best Milkshake Houston 2013 - Lola
We're not entirely sure about that URL, but we certainly know a preposterously fine milkshake when we taste one. While the options aren't as plentiful as Amy's or as boozy as Little Big's, Lola sticks with an unfailingly simple recipe. Served up in a chic diner atmosphere — think greasy spoon meets urban farm — the milkshakes at Lola are as honest and overflowing as you're apt to find. Not too hefty, not too whipped, with a perfect cap of cream and chocolate drizzle to finish you off. And the best part? There's always enough left for seconds.
