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.

This might be a small location and not enough seating capacity, but the food is 5 stars at all times. Regardless what time of day, the menu and cooking is always consistent. I have ordered the delicious California Burritos, my mouth is watering, fresh meat, fresh tomatoes, freshly made guacamole, cheese, French fries, sour cream, beans and salsa. That is... More

This may be the best Mexican food chain in San Diego county. The California burrito is easily the best I have had anywhere and I have been eating them for over 25 years!

I hadn't been to any of the Lolita's in a long time. I did a YELP search and saw that Lolita's was only 3 and 1/2 stars, but it was close and I remembered their good reputation from the past. The Telegraph Canyon location's parking hasn't improved since they opened over 20 years ago , but the food is good... More

If youre a San Diego native you should know there is way better quality mexican food in town. But, this is a really convenient place to satisfy any cravings for Mexican food. Definitely call ahead if you're picking up or be patient if you dine in. Carne Asada fries and their burritos are good.

They make the food right there in front of you, and it is hot when you get to eat it. the restaurant is busy all the time because the food is so good, so make sure you have a minute or so because their motto is good food takes time to prepare.
