I have eaten at about half the places in town that serve breakfast tacos, and nothing else comes close to Lolita's. People say the Exxon on Guadalupe is good, people say Charro's or Los Vega. They're all fine. They're great. They're wonderful. But nothing, so far, beats Lolita's. The locals all know this. And the reason is that the tortillas... More

There's a reason Lolita's is always packed with drive-up and walk-up customers---- the very best tacos around. Wide variety to choose from or can get custom made. And the prices are low! Stop once and you will be regular! Friendly staff too!!!

It's my favorite place to stop and grab breakfast tacos. There is always a line, but it's worth the wait! Best Breakfast Tacos in Town.

This place is strictly a drive-thru, a little shack that serves up food to hungry drivers. The line to get into this place is always backed up to the street, so I have never actually stopped here. I might now. Last week we had a scheduled workday on Saturday. The boss stopped here and bought us some breakfast tacos. Just... More

I finally had a chance to try these amazing breakfast tacos on our last trip and I have to admit, they are worth all the hype! Warning: the green salsa is extremely hot! Make sure which ever taco you choose includes the bacon because it is amazing. It's not sliced bacon, more like small chucks that are cooked crisp and... More

This is one of my families fav for tacos in San Marcos, it is a small "shack" with a drive through and lines out the door. My nephew likes the fact that they put a lot of bacon in his taco, we like that they are fresh and yummy regardless of the type of taco you order and again the... More

First time here and wanted to see what all the hoopla was about. There were quite a few cars (two lines) but the wait was only about 10 minutes. We got a variety of breakfast tacos - all about as good as I've had. The flour tortillas were homemade, which is a super plus!
