Crowded spot on 13th St. We arrived without reservation on a Weds night, sat at the kitchen bar, which was just fine. Had a blood orange margarita, yummy, but a little small. Hard to choose from a great looking dinner menu. Ceviche was on special and was excellent. We also shared short rib nachos, delicious but a huge portion. Too... More

We managed to get the only two seats left on a Wednesday night at the bar, This was just fine for a casual supper. The food was excellent and served very quickly. I ate at El Vez across the road the night before, I would put this above the food and experience there.

We loved our stop at Lolita! They have an excellent variety of very nice Mexican food. I felt like the prices for the meals were very good (about $12-18 per plate) and we also had great appetizers and margaritas to go with what we ate. Our server was top notch and was very helpful in picking out some of his... More

The food was delicious and the service was great! Try the guacamole with bacon! It was out of this world! I had the enchiladas verdes, and they were delicious as well. They have tables outside on the sidewalk, but we sat inside because it was raining when we visited. If you do sit outside, be aware that the sidewalks are... More

Surprisingly different from most Mexican restaurants. Contemporary spin on Mexican food. I had the Cholula Fried Chicken Tacos. They were good, like Buffalo Chicken in a taco. Not a place to go to if you want a quiet meal.

The food was excellent, we sat outside on the sidewalk. We were happy about that, because inside it was really loud and the air was sticky. The waitresses arent that friendly, but still ok. We would go again.

I was in Philly for the weekend and been bar and fine dining hopping the whole time. I wanted to hit a place that had solid flan like we do in Houston. This place was not a disappointment at all! Nice set up as well.

A lovely place to sit outside on a fall evening - perfect weather, perfect drinks, perfect food. Plenty of people watching to take advantage of too, with the public sidewalk right in the middle of the outdoor seating. Our waitress was very pregnant but very attentive and pleasant.

Jet lagged and hungry we stumbled to lolitas. The staff explain the menu but we asked them to give us a selection of their best. Everything tasted fantastic and we ordered more. Sitting on street tables made the experience even better being able to take in the sights and sounds of Philly.
