Lolita Restaurant is a Mexican Restaurant located in Philadelphia in Midtown Village.  Originally opened in 2004 by restaurateurs Chef Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran, it underwent a major renovation in 2014 and reopened with a fresh look, a new Mexican street food-inspired menu and a full liquor license. 
The extensive full-scale renovation highlights the addition of a 16-seat bar and chef's counter looking into the open kitchen.
Lolita seats 45 guests with additional outdoor sidewalk seating in the warmer months.  Reservations are accepted every day for lunch and dinner, while seating at the bar and chef’s counter is on a first come, first served basis.  We have a full liquor license and accept all major credit cards.

Contemporary Mexican plates & specialty margaritas in an upbeat, rustic-chic setting- Google
"Byo, byo tequila catered for in particular with margarita mixes."
"This the only Mexican food place where chips and salsa cost 5 dollars a cup."

Fantastic! The flavors were excellent and the margaritas tasted great but had a kick. So good!

Full disclosure, prior to the remodeling Lolita was my favorite restaurant in the city. Everything is still pretty good, but very expensive for what you are getting. The drinks were fine, but are VERY expensive compared to the good old days of BYOT. It's a bummer not being able to choose the brand of tequilla and control the booziness like you could previously. I won't be going back. It's a fine restaurant but it has lost what made it unique compared to other restaurants in it's price range AND the price range is more expensive than it used to be.

I recently took my wife ( as a Valentine's gift ) to the "Philly cooks Tasting Tour" on a blustery Monday evening along with 20-25 something patrons. I choose this evening because I knew (not opened yet ) Lolita was on the stop with Chef Marcie Turney and Co owner Valerie Safran. It was the best stop on the trip for me and my wife. Marcie with her three staff were able to deliver 4 different plate offerings using 2 portable induction cook tops and an electric steamer for one of them (steamed Tamale). The highlight for my wife was the shrimp ceviche tossed with mango, citrus, and Plantains. For me the root vegetable tostada with sushi grade tuna enhanced with Ponzu sauce, seasame oil, and soy, finished with fried shallots on top stole the show. Every dish from start to finish had flavor, texture, and was aesthetically appealing. It was also nice that Marcie and Valerie stayed with us for the entire hour + we were there, answering questions and giving us the history of their humble beginnings. Hats off to Marcie and Valerie you made the tour that night.

Just tried to go to Lolita's for lunch- left because of rudeness- from the moment we stepped in. The host, waitress and waiter were rude without cause. The staff was snotty and not sure if the general vibe was racist. Would not recommend such an unwelcoming place

Vegetarian review. Have a reservation or be prepared to wait over an hour on a Wednesday night.

The margaritas are awesome! they are a little expensive but since you bring your own tequila they can be as strong as you want. The food was also good too, a little bit expensive but a nice selection.
