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

This place use to be the best taco shop in all of San diego but it is not good any more. Portions and food quality had decreased as well as service. Don't expect much

I ate at Lolita's Taco shop while visiting a relative in Chula Vista. Over the course of my trip, I returned several times. The tacos and quesadillas tasted fresh but a little bland. My chips were very soggy. The condiments were not too spicy. When I return at the end of October, I'd like to try the California burrito. For... More

My wife and I had to go to Chula Vista for an appointment for her to get her Global Entry card so we figured we would stop and eat some great Mexican food. I looked online to see which places had some great reviews and found all sorts of people raving about Lolitas Taco Shop. I saw that it was... More

Their Carne Asada is good, I like that they take time to make their food. I like their Chips with Pollo Asado and Pollo Asado Burritos they are good. They have all kinds of good condiments. I just wish they would have a little more help when busy. If you order by phone usually things get done right. and prices... More

I come back to CV from Florida to visit family and make it a point to stop by Lolita's at least once during our stay. We love their shredded Tacos for their freshness, crispiness, and flavor. The beef is generously served and very tender. The lines to order appear to be getting longer and longer. By far the best over... More

Good menu and quality Mexican food. Can get busy around dinner time, which might mean a wait of 10 minutes or so. Food may be a little greasy for some, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a particularly healthy option. It's a good choice for take-out, although there are six tables inside. Overall, a good option for quick Mexican... More
