GREAT food with a salsa bar

Fast Mexican food, not fast food Mexican. Great flavor and abundance of food for the price. Food was fresh along with the salsa bar. THEY NEED MORE INSIDE SEATING!!! No wait staff but the cashiers were very polite.

I love tacos but have never been a fan of "Americanized" tacos such as taco bell. This place is legit. The food is authentic and very tasty. Every time we go there is a line out the door. We always get the food to go because there isn't seating available.

Lolita’s, Chula Vista, Ca. 6/24/15 Our son took us to Lolita’s for dinner. This is a small Mexican fast food place. When we got there all the tables were taken. It looks like this place is very popular. The food was very good and LOTS of it. We even had to ask for a takeout box. One thing I noticed... More

This is our favorite take-out restaurant. The location is very small for seating but you can call in your order and then pick it up. The food is great - we have never been disappointed, and we have been going there at least 20 years. When we are out of town - this is the first place we go when... More

The food is pretty average, and the prices seem to be going up for a very small nondescript place with very little seating and a long standing wait, if you just happen to walk in. The best thing to do is call in your order, otherwise I have stood for l/2 hour at least waiting for my order to come... More

I have had better Mexican food in my own kitchen. Big portions but bland food. Meat and chicken were not seasoned at all and the prices were a bit high for the quality. Save your money and eat elsewhere.

This place is always packed and I still don't know why... Went here for some fish tacos on a Friday night. As usual, there was a huge wait (out the door). I ordered the two fish taco combo. I was told that it was a 30 minute wait. After 45 minutes, I received my order. The salsa bar was virtually... More

Lots of different items on the menu. Lunch specials each day. It takes a little time to get food because each order is made fresh. There is a sign that tells you that good food is worth waiting for. But, even so, it's not a long wait. Sometimes there is a line because the food is so good. I have... More
