We stopped here at random and it was well worth it. Service was great and the food came out really quick. We ordered the tuna and it was some of the best tuna was every had. We sat at the chef's table and it was a neat experience watching everyone preparing the meals. Well worth it.

Had drinks, margarita of course and husband had the chicken sandwich with great fries and I had the green salad with shrimp which was excellent. Both the food and service and drinks are always good here.

Delicious dinner enjoyed by all. Three of us went to dinner. I had the Enchiladas Verde. You have choices of fillings, I selected the vegetarian.... and wow! was it good. Great flavors and textures. Others selected the Crispy Fish Tacos and they each commented about how good they were.

We decided to eat hear after Winterfest at Penns Landing. Food was delicious. I thought a little pricey for the serving size. Water comes out in old bottles and some food served on wooden plates.

It was our first time dining and Lolita and I can't wait to get back! We were seated quickly upon arriving with our reservation (strongly suggested). We were seated in the small window area which was great for people watching. Service was prompt and professional. Everything we ordered was delicious! We especially enjoyed the korean pork tostadas!

We stopped in at Lolita, a quaint intimate Mexican with modern flare restaurant on our favorite little 13th street choc full of indie food fare and shop around the corner type retail. We didn't make reservations so we settled in at the bar. They have some excellent happy hour drink specials, we loved the red sangria but many bar-mates were... More

Crowded spot on 13th St. We arrived without reservation on a Weds night, sat at the kitchen bar, which was just fine. Had a blood orange margarita, yummy, but a little small. Hard to choose from a great looking dinner menu. Ceviche was on special and was excellent. We also shared short rib nachos, delicious but a huge portion. Too... More

We managed to get the only two seats left on a Wednesday night at the bar, This was just fine for a casual supper. The food was excellent and served very quickly. I ate at El Vez across the road the night before, I would put this above the food and experience there.

We loved our stop at Lolita! They have an excellent variety of very nice Mexican food. I felt like the prices for the meals were very good (about $12-18 per plate) and we also had great appetizers and margaritas to go with what we ate. Our server was top notch and was very helpful in picking out some of his... More

The food was delicious and the service was great! Try the guacamole with bacon! It was out of this world! I had the enchiladas verdes, and they were delicious as well. They have tables outside on the sidewalk, but we sat inside because it was raining when we visited. If you do sit outside, be aware that the sidewalks are... More
