This place is awesome. Great for all your cooking needs, but it's the wine selection that is best value for money. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. Every city should have a Lupe Pintos.

This place is small and has friendly staff, a wide variety of Mexican food and hot sauces. If you're American or Canadian, there'll be niche items in here you've been looking for.

If you want to cook real Mexican dishes, this is where you can get everything. Real Mexican products, the prices are not out of this world.

As an American, living in Scotland, this place is a life saver. I cried (literally) the first time I walked into this shop. Seeing some familiar foods and the spicy Mexican selections brought me to tears. I LOVE cooking Mexican/TexMex/Latino-style foods and we all know I can't find these at the local shop! So thank you Lupe Pinto's for helping... More

I discovered this little shop a few years ago and keep going back there every now and then, to stock up on Mole sauce, their wonderful tortillas, chili chocolate, hot sauces etc. The foodstuffs are a bit pricey, but that's understandable since they are authentic products imported from all over the world, mostly the Americas. The quality however is outstanding,... More

A very small store, feel's crowded. We found what we were looking for, yerba mate tea, but I would probably not buy anything else.

Apparently Lupe Pintos has been around for over 20 years. I'm so very disappointed that I didn't find it sooner but I'm so glad I I got there eventually. It's a tiny shop, packed with all things interesting, hot & spicy from all over the world. It has a great selection of hot sauces (not so easy to find in... More

For twenty years I have gone to lupe Pinto's for all things spicy. Great stock great service. Best narcos and tortillas. The tequila and rum selection is fab only the best. Knowledgeable staff and a fair price. Currently sipping on a fine St Lucian rum I bought this afternoon.
