This was my first visit. I ordered the Carne Adobo with Papas (potatoes). The meat was tender and the seasoning was spicy, but not overpowering. The plates came with rice and beans. If you want lettuce/tomatoes you will need to order a salad. The restaurant is a the Central Plaza strip mall, so set back off the street. Parking is... More

We frequently order carry out from Mi Lupita. Pepe's tacos and Enchiladas Poblanos are the best things we have had. All very good. Friendly service. Wish they had more locations ...

This place is great. We have the hardest time finding a good Mexican Restaurant. It seems the chicken is always dry and the prices are outrageous. This is definitely not the case at Mi Lupita. This quiet little restaurant surprised us. The chicken was so juicy and all the food was flavorful. The chips and salsa were awesome and the... More

If you love REAL -- and I mean REAL Mexican food and great service, go here! Inexpensive, authentic, and very nice people. After hitting up Mexican food restaurants all over town when I first moved here from Texas, I thought that I would NEVER find a place that would be decent but this place is AWESOME!!! It gets VERY crowded... More

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.
