Love this place. It's close to my work. Good bean and cheese burrito. You can eat inside or outside. The staff is friendly and the place is very clean. Alot of coworkers go here or do lunch runs. Never not been satisfied with what I ordered.

Love their food. Restaurant is always clean and they take care of cleaning up self service bar so it is always tidy. Particularly love the carnitas plate and the rolled tacos. Delish!

I've been visiting Lolita's since I first arrive to Chula Vista back in 1974. At the time there was only the one restaurant on Telegraph Canyon Rd west of I-805. Their food it's pretty much the same as back then: Very tasty, inexpensive and the place it's always clean. Now a days they've open several restaurants in the San Diego... More

I have visited Lolita's many, many times; and I am aware of their motto "Patience is the Essence of Fine Mexican Food." The food is good and I always expect a bit of a wait, and I am totally fine with that. One evening, however, the wait at the L Street location was inordinately long (almost 30 minutes) for my...

I liked the one on Bonita Road, so I went to the new one in Eastlake and found it just average in food and service. Somewhat disapointed since I have enjoyed the other Lolitas for many years.

I have been going to this place for years now and never rated this place, they are one of the best taco shops in socal, Prices are moderate just as other taco shops. I have had times they mess up my order when I order to go so I suggest you check you food before you leave.

Just a typical Mexican/American food place. It's ok, but nothing to write home about. I usually get either the rolled tacos or a carne asada burrito.

This place works if you want to get a quick bite to eat but I would not call it anything special. The menu is your typical taco shop menu. My biggest issue is the guacamole. The carne asada burrito virtually has none. There is a watery green smear on one end of the burrito but that is about it but... More
