A nice West End neighborhood joint. Margarita & taco specials draw a noisy & fun crowd. Casual & inexpensive.

Lolita's is dark, narrow and crowded, even on a Sunday night after 9pm. But what food! I had the flank steak, I think it was called. Just the freshest ingredients, perfectly prepared and so tasty. If I lived in the area, I'd eat there twice a week.

Returned 5 years after last meal and it still lived up to expectations. Great service. We had chicken enchiladas and fajitas. Portions were large and very tasty. Nice atmosphere.

The food here was fantastic. I had the taco platter, and every bite was like a party in your mouth :-) The flavors all gelled together seamlessly, the heat was there but not burn your face off, just tickle your tongue. The food was fresh, not oily or greasy and not packed with plastic cheese! Happy hubby wasn't hungry so... More

I'm sorry Lolita servers and fans but I should have listened to the critics on this one. My wife was happy with her plate (Chipotle maple nut squash) $16.75. I ordered the COWBOY carne asada. $16.75. I got what must of been 1 oz. of beef. (Don't know the metric equal). COWBOY!. Expensive small drinks. Small, crowded eating area. Can't... More

Great tequila menu and featured drinks. The chips and salsa was tasty. I had the Mexican salad with chicken and the dressing was probably the best I ever had. My partner had the tacos and they were equally as good. The server was great. If you go to Vancouver and looking for Mexican I couldn't recommend a better place. My... More

You can almost miss this place it truly is a hidden gem. I was recommended this place by a local guy. The service was friendly and welcoming. I went on a Tuesday which is Taco plates for $10. There was a good choice. Tasty and fresh. Presented well. The margaritas are a must. Really enjoyed the evening.

When it comes to your meal experience at Lolita's, they don't mess around. You are in the West End, you are going to have a memorable meal and that's the end of it. I had a spicy mango margarita, and they made sure it was that, complete with mashed mango and thinly sliced jalapenos. The rest of our party had... More

Nice room, not a lot of tables. Food was tasty... We had a special with scallops and the soft taco plate. The ground beef/chorizo filling was better than the chicken. Portions were healthy but not enormous, it was good value for money. We shared the chocolate chipotle brownie with raspberry sauce. Delish! Would have gotten 5 stars if they brought... More
