I guess I should have looked at the photos better before coming here. I thought it was a mom & pop shop, but rather it was a chain. I got a wet carne asada burrito and it was pretty good, but I was disappointed that they didn't have lengua. I say it's not a proper Mexican joint without lengua on... More

I has the crunchy chicken taco, which was good but the chicken was bland. I would definitely try a different meat next time. The refried beans were really good. The place seems to be non-stop busy. I look forward to trying their carne asada fries which look delicious.

Burritos are really good. And big. The California burrito was very tasty. The Deluxe breakfast burrito was also good but lacked a little in flavor. Fortunately, they have a salsa bar with a variety of flavors. The restaurant is clean and has a pretty side patio with tables and umbrellas. Only thing lacking (for breakfast) is coffee...but a Starbucks is... More

If you're in a hurry there's a Taco Bell nearby. If you don't mind waiting 10 to 15 minutes for your food, this is the place to be. Just a few blocks from my office, this place is difficult to resist. Fortunately, I'm holding myself to a diet right now so the California Burritos will have to wait. Their salsa... More

We loved this place and visited twice while staying in SD. The taco salad was so fresh tasting and the nachos with chicken and shrimp were amazing! Definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican food.

I ordered the carne asada small fries and Surf & Turf Burrito. The food came out very quickly and the restaurant was clean. The carne asada fries were huge even for a small sized order. The fries were thin and perfectly crispy. The steak was cut in small pieces which I really appreciated and it had a liberal amount of... More

I wanted to try Lolita's and specifically taste the potato taco. I ordered my husband a machaca burrito along with the potato taco for me with sides of refried beans and pickled carrots. It took a full 20 minutes to receive my to-go order. The machaca burrito was just beef and eggs and very bland. There was no onion and... More

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!
