My barometer for Mexican is the chips and salsa. If you lose there your done. This place kills it with great salsas, guac and mixed chips. This is my second time here and if you’re looking for great authentic Mexican food this is it. Not...More

We close Lolita based on the menu, which sounded interesting. The place was very busy at 6:30; a good sign. We were seated inside, where the din was overwhelming. Based on the hipster crowd and the noise, we had high expectations. Instead, the food was......More

I went there for a work dinner with 5 other colleagues and all of the dinners were very good. Two dishes were late in arriving to our table but they made up for it by taking two drinks off our tab

Small establishment with excellent food. Wonderful fresh, warm tortillas. The portion is generous. The meat was tender, well spiced. It was served with great guacamole and fresh mango salsa. I will definitely return.

I have yet to order something here that hasn't been phenomenal. The jalapeño onion fries, the tacos, the entrées, and the margaritas... everything is fantastic. Would specifically recommend the chicken chilaquiles; it's probably the best brunch dish i've had to date.

Youthful, light, atmosphere, and excellent server who provided suggestions and patient guidance for we first-timers! The red sangria was very tasty, and the fish tacos were delicious. Chicken enchiladas had a nice kick and were very good, too, but on the heavy side for lunch...More

Experienced Lolita on March 10 with two friends after the Philadelphia Flower Show. While the lighting in the restaurant was a bit too dark for my taste (I used my iPhone to read the menu), the food and service were excellent. My cucumber jalapeño margarita...More
