Cali Burrito

Man the sheer size of the Californian Burrito and the Carne Asada Fries are just tremendous!! Love how they put on fresh fries on them and their salsa compliments their stuff!

We visited San Diego, staying at Hampton Inn near Clairemont Mesa, and after a day of driving around the city wanted something easy and convenient. The restaurant was located in a plaza & Magdalene patiently took our order. The food was delish and Freshly made! It's a casual order at the counter then pick up your food when they call... More

We would have eaten here for lunch and dinner every day of the vacation if my wife could have picked. She loved their chicken tacos! The food was prepared fresh, the staff was helpful, the atmosphere casual, and we left full and happy. It was nearby our Residence Inn and came on their list of recommended places to eat and...

3rd year as a Padre Season ticket holder and here's the drill. Look up the menu online, call your order in 15-20 minutes before you get to the ballpark. Pick up your order at the bar and order a beer for less than $4. Screaming deal. Love the #1 combo, two beef tacos, rice and beans. You can even take... More

They do a great job making burritos not too greasy. I got the carnesada which is excellent, especially with the hot sauce. It's filling - not too big, which means you don't feel heavy after finishing. The hot carrots are great.

We do take-outs periodically for our company lunch from Lolitas. Convenient, parking is ample, prices for 3 guys can be had for a $20 bill. During the lunchtime period (or mid-day for that matter) it's generally pretty darn busy. People don't flock to a place that is substandard. The portions are just right, the salsas, peppers, add-ons are fresh, the... More

Stopped in with some friends who were locals when I told them I wanted GOOD mexican food. Definitely was not disappointed. I knew right away that it was something because the line was moving, and the kitchen was pumping out the orders. Went from 18 - 97 in the short time I was there waiting for my friends, and workeda...

No one compares to this place. I get the pollo asado fries every time I'm here and always leave satisfied and happy. Also, Julio is the best.
