Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Owner Alfredo Ceseña says Lolita’s began in 1967, the year his mother began cooking tamales and other treats for friends, neighbors, and the occasional tourist. The restaurant proper dates to 1988, when it opened half a block from its current location, on the corner of Niños Héroes and Matamoros, across the street from an elementary school.
Lolita’s Restaurant serves soups, salads, seafood, and traditional favorites, as well as house-made salsas. Specialties include hangover “cures” like chilaquiles, cocido de res, menudo, and pozole, as well as a superb birria. Billed as the “traditional beef dish of Baja Sur,”Lolita’s birria consists of soft “rolled neck” beef slow cooked in guajillo and chili pasilla broth and flavored with onion, garlic, chili poblano, and spices. For less adventurous sorts, enchiladas, fajitas, and tacos are also available, as are steak and sandwiches.
Fresh-squeezed orange juice and fruit smoothies headline the breakfast beverage list, and the restaurant also maintains a nice selection of beers, cocktails, wines, and tequilas. The liquors are showcased on individual shelves beneath a deer’s head and one of the area’s most colorful and evocative murals.
