Very Tasty and Great Atmopshere

Being right in the middle of the farmers market near The Grove the atmosphere is really cool and not as formal as one of the restaurants. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced and would definitely visit again!

The employees were not the friendliest here. I asked one guy if he could please hand me my dish and he stared at me and went back to what he was doing. I had my hands full and he couldn't care less. Over priced and not my favorite.

been to many mexican restaurants in LA but this is my all time favorite. I've been to the Hollywood location and the one in Studio City. I like the Studio City location best, parking is easy, it's big with an outdoor patio for a perfect Sunday brunch. Tonight was albondigas soup with a salad and margarita and my daughter shared...

We love Phil Rosenthal's show and went to Loteria based on his review. It was good, not great. Chips weren't home-made and guac was average. Service behind the counter though, was pleasant and efficient.

I haven't had anything that I don't like here. If you're from the midwest you will be puzzled by our tacos- they are small and fit in the palm of your hand. Trust me. They are great! There is also a Loteria on Hollywood blvd. Same place. Also recommend.

We were sat in the back which was definitely lacking in any atmosphere with very harsh lighting. Nachos were obviously left under the grill too long and were burnt. Tacos were OK. One of our party ordered a second cocktail. After a long wait the server came back to say they were out of mint and couldn't make it. Then... More

Great location but overpriced and average food. Go to El Cholo instead! The guac was good but didn't enjoy the tacos and we spent so much more than at other dinners we loved. I remember liking this food when I had it at the Farmer's Market location, but this time it wasn't that wonderful.

Stopped in for a quick bite before our movie. I love good, authentic Mexican. I ordered a Summer Special, Chile Rellanos Tacos for $15. I anxiously awaited while many other patrons received their food. When my plate arrived I was very disappointed. Small, burnt Rellanos inside two inch corn tortillas. A few cubes of apple and that's it. On the... More

We enjoyed the shrimp tacos, guacamole, queso fundido, green rice and flavored iced tea. We asked the bus boy at the French restaurant where he and his colleagues ate and he said Loteria. We are glad he sent us here.
