Excellent lunch and company

I went there with some colleagues as my first introduction to real Mexican food and was not disappointed. I will definitely be back!

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.

Ate three tacos in here with black beans and rice and washed it all down with a glass of agua fresca. The food was decent but definitely not a value for money deal. Notice that many reviews and even some of the pictures refer to different restaurants named Loteria. The restaurant of this review is located inside the Farmer's Market... More

I was recently in Santa Monica and ate at Loteria. Was a really nice inviting place to eat. We actually had drinks at the sit down bar around noon then returned later in the day for dinner. The Margaritas are great. Freshly made with fresh lime juice and good tequila. The food was fresh with freshly made corn and flour... More

I ordered a shredded beef burrito. It was not clear to me that rice, beans and guacamole would come inside the burrito - I did not like on that way.

Loteria Grill @ the Farmers Market was okay, nothing great. There are so many better restaurants and food trucks within about a block radius that are so much better with friendlier staff. Not impressed.

we ate at the one located at Farmers Market. We had chips and salsa and the chicken burrito was not good at all. Chips ok. I will not go back at this location. The menu is not so good either. They are missing a lot of Mexican dishes

The cactus salad,nopalitos, tastes just like the one we eat in Mexico. Enjoying authentic Mexican food at any of the LOTERIA Grill restaurants in Los Angeles is a true pleasure. The best Mexican food this side of the border, without a doubt ! Congrats!

Considering how much my wife and I have enjoyed the sit-down, full-service versions of this small restaurant chain, this fast-food version was a big disappointment : mediocre food ( Same or different recipes used?) ; indifferent, "throw the food across the counter" style of service, and really, really limited menu choices. The location at the Farmer's Mkt. is a big... More
