Our founders

Our founders, Joaquin and Dolores (“Lolita”) Farfan, have over five decades’ experience in the Mexican food business, and all their children work for Lolita’s. Their culinary expertise and love for community is vital to all we do. We seek to be visible and active members of the communities in which we do business. Our customers are our guests, and our employees are our team.

When the Farfans started Lolita’s, they sought to support their growing family and serve excellent Mexican food. The top sellers include carne asada burritos, bean & cheese burritos, and rolled tacos with guacamole. Key to their success—then and now—are their one-of-a-kind spices and sauces.

Our food speaks for itself: Our success comes from word of mouth in our communities. Our location near Petco Park, called Lolita’s at the Park, serves new customers from far and wide. It’s a delight to share and serve our pride and joy—our fresh, scrumptious menu—with our guests.

We’re eager to meet you and serve our favorite dishes to you and your family!
