This place was great. We stopped by for an early lunch and were pleasantly surprised with great service and food. The guacamole was great. The steak tacos were excellent. The waitress was attentive. We'd recommend this place to anyone looking for some outstanding Mexican food.

Oh my, yes the fish tacos are great, and so is the Mexican corn, but the drinks stole the show. I can’t stop thinking about the tamarind sour. The blood orange margarita is amazing as well. Very creative ingredients, cool presentation, all served up in...More

The guacamole and chorizo queso were excellent. The chicken tacos were not so much. The fried chicken was small, dry and tasteless. Imagine an overcooked McNugget staring back at you.

We sat at the bar in this little crowded place and had a great view on the kitchen. There were four people working in the very small kitchen. What a great job! The food was excellent and the bartender was great! Definitely recommend the place!!

Nice place, really good food and fantastic marg classica. Ate at bar and enjoyed talking to cooks who were happy to suggest a few different hot sauce options from the kitchen. Much more relaxed and food focused than neighbor el Rez

Lolita's bills itself as "modern Mexican," and doesn't disappoint. We had the fish tacos and fried chicken tacos, both served elegantly on wooden platters. While the sauce was a bit spicy for me, my husband liked it. We thought the margaritas were a bit pricey...More
