Reliable Tex Mex

Lupe's has great upscale TexMex. They also have an outstanding frequent diner program that saves you $5 for every $100 spent. Their signature dish, Chicken Lupe, is always flavorful. Also try the soft chicken tacos - they are like enchiladas only a lot better.

I am not sure about the other Lupe Tortilla restaurants, but the one in the Pearland Town Center on TX288 heading south out of Houston is consistently perfect. The staff that works there "gets it." They are courteous, professional, fun, and they genuinely seem pleased you decided to eat there. The service is always good and the food comes out... More

Nothing outstanding to note. The meal was not outstanding. I can't even remember what I ordered. The sangria was the best part of the meal.

My good friend Don that works for The Dent Guys took me here and we had about 4 weeks the World Famous Fajitas by the pound. I recommend the Beef 1lb for 2. Then you will have enough food left over for days. IF your thirsty get a margaritas for $6

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. At this place "Lupe" means "really good food!" Lunch here after the noon-time crowd was relaxed and... More

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.
