There is one dish which consists of what appears to be a large, thin flat bread served with guacamole. It is in fact a huge shard of grilled cheese and it is utterly delicious. Yumyumyum.

Came here for a team dinner with work and had a fantastic meal. Very authentic Mexican street food. We all had margaritas which were done very well too. We were a fairly big group but the waiter was very good and got everything done quickly.

You know you've walked into a good restaurant whenever you see happy diners. It was busy early evening, even before dinner time and was packed later whenever we eventually got in. The smells of spice and Mexican goodness welcome you at the door. Ceviche was outstanding and churros were delicious. 4 mains, 3 drinks, and 2 desserts came up to... More

I was last in Lupita about a year ago, and I'm glad to see that it has retained its high levels of service and amazing food. We always sit at the bar so that we can see what's going on, the chefs are incredible and make the food so quickly that you wonder how it can be so fast and... More

I went here with friends on a last-minute decision on a Thursday night. We got a table almost immediately. The restaurant is quite small, a bit cramped, but actually not that loud. Our margaritas were fantastic. The small guacamole was also good. We all had either tacos or burritos; I had the carnitas tacos with cheese. They were absolutely delicious,... More

We ate here on a bust Saturday night and we all love Mexican food. We were disappoint with the quality of the food, it was very much like a fast food establishment. The service was very good though.
