This place works if you want to get a quick bite to eat but I would not call it anything special. The menu is your typical taco shop menu. My biggest issue is the guacamole. The carne asada burrito virtually has none. There is a watery green smear on one end of the burrito but that is about it but... More

The food is delicious but portions. Are small with prices that are over rated. My husband expected his California burrito to be much bigger, but it wasn't. The roll tacos are very delicious but my favorite is the breakfast burrito with beans. The beans are very tasty. I would still go but not as often.

This is a very small restaurant but has many return customers, I among them. The Mexican food is excellent, I usually buy food to go as it can get pretty crowded due to the small dining area. When we get the Lolita's food home there is never any leftovers, we always enjoy it to the last chip and expect to... More

Their food is always consistently good but has gotten progressively more expensive. It's always busy which attests to the taste of the food. Family from Yuma loves it here, but I usually go somewhere else because of the price.

We went here upon a recommendation and were not disappointed. Tacos were great, very flavourful. Place was very busy with dine in and especially take out. We were also told to try Tsunami fries. It's like a poutine but so much better - Fries, topped with shredded steak, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro, sour cream sauce and shrimp (which... More

This is a regular stop for our family since we live in Chula Vista. I have been eating here since the 90's. A safe bet is their California Burrito, probably top 5 I have ever had. It comes with your choice of meat, fries, cheese and sour cream. I personally like it with guacamole. Their salsa makes the difference on... More

This is one of our favorite Taco Shops near 805 and Telegraph Canyon. Freshly prepared quick service for take out. Limited seating though.

THIS HAS TO BE THE ABSOLUTE WORST TACO SHOP IN SAN DIEGO! I was in the area today and ordered a Carne Asada torta ... $8 bucks! The guy on the drive through was very rude -like most of the reviews here say- but he reassured me the torTa would be really good ... not at all, it was disgusting!... More
