We stopped here before the baseball game. Wow, so busy and no guaranteed seating! We got some bar stools by being in the right place at the right time. Food was very good but took awhile. They do have a sign that says “good Mexican...More

I did not have the same experience as the other recent reviewers, except that there was a long wait. Everything else was great. The food was worth the wait. The carne asada was delicious and came with a handmade tortilla. The chips and guac were...More

Good basic Mexican food that comes in big portions. This is not a fancy place but seems to be much appreciated by locals.

We came here wanting a sit down dinner but it was more of a takeaway place as there isn’t much atmosphere inside and there was almost no one inside when we came (but then many people came and went with takeaway). We ended up getting...More

Lolita’s would be the best burrito joint in town in most cities on the east coast, but in California it’s just about average. I enjoyed my carne asada burritos here but they were smaller and less flavorful than some other places I frequent. But maybe...More

Great place to grab lunch or casual dinner before a game. This is NOT a dinner restaurant, it's a tacqueria. Food is always well seasoned and served hot. All the meats are very good as are the beans and guac. No outdoor seating so wait...More
