Tex-Mex at its Best

Lupe Tortilla's has been around Houston for some time and is not a big chain restaurant. Instead of just salsa with your chips, Lupe does something different, which we love, they serve pinto beans as well. The food is great and the portions are huge, so sometimes it's hard to eat it all.

This has got to be the best Mexican food in Texas I have ever tasted... I was told to order 2lbs of meat for a table of 4 men and we still had some left over. I wish they had this kind of food back in South Georgia...

Love Lupe Tortilla! They have some of the best Tex-Mex in Houston. I get food from there weekly. Sometimes dine-in other times carry-out. I have never been disappointed. The service is always great too. Waits can be long but it is well worth it.

Food was good but not exceptional, service was excellent - professional but discreet, but was it value for money? 5 mains, 2 beers, 2 margaritas and a soft drink came to $113. However, convenient, speedy, nice outside seating area. Was rather noisy but they did turn the music down a little. Would probably go again and would recommend because it... More

The chef had heard we had never been here, so he brought us samples, I was hooked. The food was Delicious and the service was fantastic. Would definitely recommend going there.

Service was great, food was fabulous. This is one of our favorites for a reason. My only complaint is that they suddenly stopped putting the guacamole on the ground beef chalupa. If you are going to change something, change anything but the chalupas!

The family loves going out for fajitas and drinks, but found the quality a little less than the cost required. Fun atmosphere for children but other places equal or better for the cost.

I've been here several times and they pretty much live up to their reputation. The food is good. We prefer the lime-marinated Carne Asada. A bit salty but nice and tender meat. I love the fact that they offer you bowls of salsa and warm borracho beans for appetizers for free. Very nice The margaritas are pretty good here and... More

Spent twice as much as I normally do compared to my hometown favorite Mexican food restaurant. Our food ended up with too many conflicting flavors and colors on the food - that spells only one thing - you have entered into the world of not mexican food but tex mex in a big city with big prices. And checking the... More

Lupe Tortilla's is near and dear my heart (and stomach). Originally starting in a small cottage off I-10 and Highway 6, they've expanded their franchise to at least 4 other locations. Don't quote me - check out their website. I've eaten at at least 4 of them - usually the one of Highway 249 as it is closest our home.... More
