The waitress was very friendly and efficient. Our food came very quickly and was made fresh to order. I thought for the amount of food the price was reasonable. I will return again if I am in town.

This is not the best burger or Mexican food in the Independence area. The salsa bar is a joke. Nothing was marked, so, you didn't know what you were getting. My husband couldn't figure out the texture of the steak burger. He wasn't sure that it was all meat. He had a terrible stomach ache after eating his lunch. I... More

My wife and I shared a Jumbo beef Burrito and it was all we could eat for lunch. The Salsa bar was a nice touch as it allows you to mix a sauce to the heat you like. The service was pleasant and helpful. In all it was a pleasant time.

Pay attention to the Lobito's sign below. Holly Molly this is hands down the best Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten--and I have eaten at plenty. The salsa was perfect. The chips were perfect. The cheese dip I loved--might be a little bland for some. The shredded beef fried tacos were flat out the best tacos I have ever had!... More

I've eaten at Lobito's numerous times. The food is always fresh. Don't think fast food. It doesn't take forever, but good, freshly cooked, authentic, Mexican food does not magically appear in two minutes. The food is always delicious. I have literally never eaten anything here that I did not enjoy. The portions are enormous. My wife and I usually split... More

By far my favorite Mexican restaurant in town, and I've been to a lot of 'em! Staff is always very friendly and attentive. Prices are low for the huge amount of food you get. They're not kidding when they say Nobody Ever Goes Home Hungry! There's a little bit of everything on the menu including both Mexican and American breakfast... More

Lobitos is an odd place. It is part mexican restaurant and part burger joint/steak house. Not exactly the combination you expect. Lobitos is located in an old Texas Toms, and quite a lot of the old Texas Toms decor is still there, giving it a surreal feel. Then you read the menu and it reminds you of the Seinfeld episode...
