Stopped here because I was in the area. This is an apparently long established Mexican sit down restaurant. The menu is pretty standard taqueria fair. It seems to be quite pricey for the combinations and many items compared to a more fast food type place, but the food is the same as an average SoCal Mexican place. There are some... More

This has been in Thousand Oaks for a very long time. We decided we should try it, after all - it has stood the test of time. Sorry, the food was greasy, greasy, greasy and lacked flavor. Service was disappointing. Shabby, uncomfortable tables and chairs and seems "dirty" overall. This was not a healthy experience and would never return. Service... More

I've been eating at this Mexican restaurant for 30 years and only recently have I had any complaints. They changed the tortilla used for the tacos, and my last visit a couple of days ago was disappointing. The cheese inside the cheese enchilada was not cooked, was a bit cold, and that's when I got the taco with the different... More

This restaurant has been in the area for years and is always rated as the local Mexican standard. Food was tasteless and greasy and the service was really bad. It was impossible to get a drink refill to wash down the food.

I really love the food at Lupe's, but the place looks dirty and shabby. The chairs in their outside dining area have the stuffing coming out of them and the inside restaurant - the part not renovated sometime back, just looks old and dirty. How hard can it be to freshen up the place? Service is friendly and a great... More

Lupe's has been in Thousand Oaks for over 40 years and continues to offer great Mexican food, good service, fair prices, and you can call ahead and get take out. Not fancy, and no hard liquor, just great mexican food as it should be prepared.

Just ordinary Mexican restaurant t food. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special. No hard liquor or beer. I preferred the food at the Alamo in Newberry Park better.

Wow..this place has been around since I was in College, I think. Have gone there for years, and it is always comfie, yummy and a welcome respite from the big, fancier, chain type restaurants. Love that it is family owned, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere just fine. A perfect neighborhood place. Thank you , Lupe's !

Lupe's has been a part of the Thousand Oaks landscape for many years. The re-modle has mad it easier to get a seat and enjoy their really good food.
