Delicious tacos served late! Loved their late night menu. Excellent food for reasonable prices. Excellent service - location can't be beat.

Came here on recommendation from a colleague and so glad I did! Not your typical Mexican restaurant! Small space but absolutely worth the noise and cramped quarters. Took the recommendation of the bartender, Dave, and had the chilaquiles, something I had not even heard of until this trip. Excellent fusion of flavor and textures. Saw multiple people with taco plates,... More

I recently visited Lolita with two friends for dinner. The restaurant is very tiny, so there weren't any tables available. Instead, we sat at the bar, and I'm glad we did--the seats at the end of the bar look into an open prep area, and it was fun to see the food prepared. Because it's so small, however, I definitely...

Made reservations for a Friday evening (must). Place is narrow and tight, but most downtown Philly restaurants of this caliber are. You will be seated close, but again, most are. Food was very good, and have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. Fresh, flavorful dishes, lively atmosphere, great drinks. Worth a stop.

Fish tacos were great, small soft tortillas, fresh ingredients. We sat at a table for 2 and were barely 6 inches from the next couple, who appeared to be on a first date. Since the noise prevented us from having a conversation, we learned all about our neighbors' lives... But did not enjoy the ambience.

My boyfriend and I were wandering the streets of Philly starving (and slightly hungover), looking for a place to grab lunch. We came across Lolita, checked out the menu and saw most tables full, so figured it must be good! We were promptly greeted with a smile and shown to our table and offered water right away. Our server was... More

Went for a quick lunch with friends and as usual we shared multiple plates. The mango guacamole was delicious and the pepitas added a nice crunch and some butteriness. The Mexican style street corn was great - would of preferred it not to still be on the cob, but it was authentic this way and the flavor was spot on.... More
