This is a regular stop for our family since we live in Chula Vista. I have been eating here since the 90's. A safe bet is their California Burrito, probably top 5 I have ever had. It comes with your choice of meat, fries, cheese and sour cream. I personally like it with guacamole. Their salsa makes the difference on... More

This is one of our favorite Taco Shops near 805 and Telegraph Canyon. Freshly prepared quick service for take out. Limited seating though.

THIS HAS TO BE THE ABSOLUTE WORST TACO SHOP IN SAN DIEGO! I was in the area today and ordered a Carne Asada torta ... $8 bucks! The guy on the drive through was very rude -like most of the reviews here say- but he reassured me the torTa would be really good ... not at all, it was disgusting!... More

Their burritos, especially carnitas an carne asada have no equal in the San Diego area. Their sauce is consistent...great takeout place.

These were honestly some of the best fish tacos I've ever had. The fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned well. I would definitely recommend this for a quick lunch stop. Hit up this location in Chula Vista though because we ate at another Lolita's in National City and it wasn't nearly as good.

Perfectly made fish tacos with just the appropriate amount of crisping, cabbage, and sour cream. The limes were fresh and juicy and service was prompt. We've visited other Lolita's in the San Diego area and this one is by far the best!

This place is not your typical Taco shop. The price are sky high for a simple dish. I remember when a plate of Carne Asada Fries were about $5ish now not even the a la forte cost that price. However, the food IS pretty good. Its better to order out because this place is really small and busy all day... More

If you want good food, Lolita's is the place to go. Their bean and cheese burritos are the best! There are several locations in Chula Vista, and one restaurant near Petco Park.
