Went here on recommendations online. Really buzzy atmosphere-a lot of people by the bar. Food was really good, if a bit on the pricey side for relatively small portions. The price you pay in San Fran we discovered! I had the fish tacos and they...More

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural
attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous
street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the

We only have MC and Visa and used one of those to pay. I'm not sure about AMEX as some merchants object to the high merchant fee. There are a lot of banks and ATM's in the area as well.

Lolo was designed by Lorena Zertuche using many recycled materials. It was our attempt to create an environment that is fun and without pretention. We strive to take common ideas from all around the world and give them a playful and delicious new perspective. We have a lot of fun bringing together the culinary traditions of Mexico and Turkey.
