After reading so many good reviews,was a little disappointed.Thought the margaritas were just ok for the price. The tables were very close together could barely move. My fish tacos were dry.food just didn't impress the 4 of us. Love Barbuzzo and lil nonnas.

Walking thru center city we came upon Lolita's and as it was a hopping place decided to have lunch. Wife got the short rib burrito which as full and stuffed to the max with not only ingredients but flavor. She asked to have the jalapeño fries and they too were delicious. I opted for the lunch special three small tacos... More

Shared a wonderful meal with my wife by selecting several taco selections along with a couple elf entrees - recommendations include marinated pork, short ribs and seafood tacos. It tastes as though there are a hundred ingredients in every bite - yum!

2 of us ordered 5 plates with a view to sharing. Unfortunately, and without warning on the menu, 2 came covered in cheese. I have an allergy so couldn't eat them. I mentioned this to the waitress, no apology for the omissions in the menu, no offer to change them or take them off the bill- nothing much more than... More

A group of us ladies decided to dine here for a batchelorette party. The ambiance was nice. Low flattering light setting. Very similar to a New York style of "sheek" atmosphere. They were very accommodating when we informed them that we needed another seat added to our table. We were a group of 7. The server was pleasant. The selection... More

Located near several performing arts venues, Lolita offers good food at a good price in a noisy, crowded space. The unusual nachos were delicious though not plentiful. Loved the chile-braised boneless shortribs. The crispy fish tacos were so good I didn't mind the thin little soft shells. Our server did not pick up on my comment that I am a... More

An excellent newer choice for Mexican cuisine in Philadelphia. We have frequently been disappointed by the Mexican food available in the city. Lolita is seductive serving savory and sensuous South of the Boarder originals. We have loved all our choices and over four visit and my wife being a vegetarian can be very careful with her meals. Just one alert... More

Good food and good service at a decent price. Bringing your own tequila makes for a good time. I've gone a few times and always enjoyed myself.

My husband and I ate at Lolita for the first time last night. The food was delicious. Everything was presented beautifully. The service was stellar. We ordered the Mango Guacamole, Korean Style Filet Tip tacos, Carnitas a la Naranja Tacos, Street Style corn, and plantains. We both cleared our plates. For dessert we had Coconut Tres Leches cake and the... More

We have returned to thus place several times and the food is always great and the atmosphere fun. The entire street has a good vibe and their sister restaurants are all great as well.
