I had heard many great things about Lomitas and was not disappointed!! They have a daily buffet with many different options available. They also have an extensive menu. The buffet includes desserts.

we are regulars. They make a great fajitas Del mar, and a great Texas Margarita. The guacamole is excellent as is the white sauce and salsa.

I dine here quite often for lunch. The buffet offers a wide variety and the melted white cheese is great. You are seated quickly and the staff is always friendly and the price is right around $10 with a soft drink.

The building itself wasn't much on the outside, but the decor on the inside was great. Wasn't expecting that when I walked in. The waitstaff was friendly, and the place seemed clean. However, the food left alot to be desired. While it was very good, the meal my husband ordered was about the size of your average kid's meal. The... More
