Anyone in southbay knows Lolita's is the best taco shop around. And this is the best location. I used to go to the one on Telegraph but they've cut back on portion sizes and no salsa bar. I considered a 4-star rating because they just

My friend suggested this place since I am a vegetarian and they have potato tacos. The combination plate alone was $7 + 85 cents extra (per taco) for the sour cream I wanted, and 90 cents extra (per taco) for the guacamole I wanted. So all together for 2 tacos w/beans & rice= $10.55. Ha ha..out of control, they lost a customer the very day they gained one...

I've yet to have a better California burrito in san diego!

I've gone to 4 of the 5 locations and I'll say so far this one in bonita is the best! To make this burrito even better ask them to add guacamole (its extra, but definitely worth it)

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

My husband and I go to Lolitas at least twice a week and I have only ordered the shrimp burrito. They are fabulous!! The only think I dont like is it is hard to make special orders because they dont understand English very well. I always ask for mine without butter and both mine and my husbands are always the same.

Living in the bay area makes me really miss mexican food. Lolita's has to be my 2nd favorite mexican food place in san diego. They're portions are okay and they raised their prices from the last time I ate there. I recommend the carne asada fries and the california burrito.

Lolita's is what it says it is: Mexican Food. Good Mexican food. Its not greasy and its authentic. The signature dishes are the carne asada fries and california burrito. Skip the taco bells and del taco and head on over to Lolita's. you won't be sorry. The only gripe i have about them is they charge extra for asking for extra guacamole, cheese, sour cream, etc.

Having relocated in 2004, Lolita's Taco Shop use to be the quintessential hole in the wall Taco Shop in the Bonita Valley . . . and in many ways, it still is. However, it is not the best of the best that it use to be.

Part of a chain that started with its location on Telegraph Canyon Road, it was once well known for a responsive staff, quality product, and huge and filling portions. Although the quality of the ingredients are still far better then most taco shops the process of time has hurt this location. Having moved only a couple yards form its former location, the new location was suppose to provide a more middle class setting, with a self-serve soda fountain, more seating, and a full on salsa bar. However, the restaurant feels more cramp then it use due to its ackward shape, the salsa bar has reverted to the usual red and green hot sauces that you can find in any Taco Shop, and to pay for it all . . . they increased the prices and decreased the portion size.

Although you can get a sizable Carne Asada Fries (one of the two signature food products (the other is the California Burrito)) . . . it will only be that way if you get it to go. So consider yourself warned.

If you want to feel how the old Bonita location felt . . . go to the Kearny Mesa Location.

Pros: Good central Bonita Location, Good quality Taco Shop food.

Cons: Limited Seating, Limited Parking, Smaller Portions

The food here is not that great, although it is a notch above taco bell and other fast food Mexican takeouts. There is usually a long wait. However, we do like the carnitas, which are great.

I wouldn't reccomment this restaurant if you're looking for fast mexican food. There are better choices in the area. I have tried this establishment twice, and both times the tacos were stale.

The only positive, is that it is open later than the other Mexican Restaurants in the area.
