This small restaurant in Ballwin is a gem. The décor is not screaming Mexican but the food is. The portions are a good size and the service is good. My husband likes his Mexican spicy but not too spicy and they will adjust the “heat” depending on what you like. The margaritas are great!

I had been meaning to try this place for years. Finally got around to it when our "regular" Mexican restaurant was closed due to some frozen water pipes. Wow, sorry it took me so long to get here. Not a fancy place-- don't expect heavy Mex decor. The emphasis is on the food-- which is very good. NOT the enormous... More

I have been here about 10 times in the past 2 years. The staff is so friendly and the food is always fresh and yummy! Excellent prices as well. Best Mexican food I've ever had.

I've been going here since I was a kid and we're practically familia. The food is great and the people are friendly. I love it.

If you are in the St.Louis area and want a great Mexican food experience, this is the place to visit. I highly recommend the Mole Chicken but everything else is awesome too. The Margaritas are wonderful and the waiters are great.

A small restaurant in Ballwin but with surprisingly good Mexican Food. Service is great, parking is plentiful. Nachos are great and so are the margaritas. No need for reservations except at peak times but it has not been a problem.

We head to Mi Lupita when we don't feel like cooking. Their quality is consistent. Not fancy and not a chain restaurant to my knowledge. Reminds me of Mexico!

Several friends recommended this place...we were new to the area so thought we would try it. This Pepe guy waited on us...he was too flirty with my wife and some of the staff appeared to be drinking. The food was not very Mexican to me. At the end of the meal I think he forgot about us... Chatting at the... More

Mi Lupita has been a mainstay for my family for several years. Whenver we are in town, we typically hit up Mi Lupita for at least one meal. My favorite is the tamale, while my husband swears by the salsa and fresh chips that are plentiful on our table (at all times), and he wants to see if he can... More
