Lupe Means...Good Food!

My Spanish is bad. But so are the many web definitions for "Lupe." Seriously, search for "Lupe" and you'll find a variety of meanings, ranging from baby names to Arabic history and even personality traits. Bottom line though, is that it doesn't matter.

We visited the Lupe's on Hwy 59, inside the Loop. Go early as they do get crowded. The frozen margarita's are refreshing but weak. The service is extremely slow...they do not have people that bring chips/salsa, it is the waiter responsible for filling your beverage and chips/salsa which slows down the process. The beef fajita's for one are big enough... More

Best margaritas in town. We live in Houston and have visited most of the "TexMex" restaurants in town. My husband and I come here more often than I want to admit. Other highlights include "chicken little" and fajitas. Manager Jerry Gross runs a tight ship. Excellent and amicable waitstaff. Bartenders Jose and Nico are attentive. Jose is an awesome waiter.

The fajitas in this place are amazing!!!! Skip the rice and the beans - order the beef, chicken, and shrimp combo with the corn and flour tortillas and move your hands out of the way - someone might eat into them!!! Also have the blood-orange margaritas they are simply awesome.

I've eaten at this place twice in Houston and once in San Antonio and I love it. Really well prepared, fresh food that is delicious. My only complaint is that I couldn't eat it all and didn't have a way to take it home!

First, let me say my fiancé and I are not usually fans of beef fajitas. I'm a chicken fajita kind of girl. Not at Lupe Tortilla, though! I convinced him to try the beef, and he was SO happy he did! The beef is seasoned beautifully with a hint of lime and is oh-so-tender. The 1/2 lb fajitas are the... More

This restaurant was my first introduction to the Lupe Tortilla menu. Yummy! The margaritas are frosty and huge. I love the warm bean salsa. I have had the salads, traditional Mexican dishes and many foods in between. I have never been disappointed.
