Not the tex mex I'm used to

Had a lovely lunch of tortilla soup and salad. Sweet, smoky and spicy soup with lots of chicken, and delicious poblano ranch dressing on the salad. Had to wait for the check. It was mid-afternoon and servers were scarce. All in all, the price was right and I would visit again.

I love this place. And I don't like Mexican! This is more than the regular Tex-mex. this food is actually very good. There are so many choices of restaurants in Houston for Mexican. I recommend this one!

Lupe Tortilla is located at a convenient location just off the highway. With authentic TexMex decor and original menu creations one won't be disappointed. Lupe tortilla has a great happy hour special featuring amazing margaritas . Many enticing items on the menu including a good variety of vegetarian options. The service was superb and since we were first timers were... More

I have been going to Lupe Tortilla for 25 years (back when there was only one - now they are all over Houston), and have always injoyed going there. great place to go for families with small children as they have a sandbox/play area outside to keep them occupied. Also great for night out with friends! Margaritas are excellent, as... More

Even though I just arrived in the US, I went here to get something for dinner. The waiter was very helpful and even after I ordered, had the owner come and give me a sample of their specialty fajitas that was out of this world. The prices seem a bit high for a one person, so I ordered the 'big... More

For all of us who were there when Lupes Tortilla started in this location we miss the old days.No part of a restaurant chain offers an average service and food.

The food was average and I don't think we will be going back to this restaurant. The atmosphere is very calm and nice. The restaurant is very beautiful inside;however, the food wasn't anything special.

We stopped here because it was very convenient from the freeway. My children ordered fajitas and they enjoyed it. I tried the crab and avocado salad which was new in their menu. It did not live up to my expectations. I think it had too much mayo or whatever dressing they used. I barely tasted the crab.

We stopped by Lupe Tortilla for lunch while visiting in Houston. The food was really good. Between the 5 of us, we sampled the fajitas, a plate of tacos and enchiladas, a burrito, and flautas. Everyone loved their choices. The flour tortillas got rave reviews. The flautas had real, identifiable chicken in them and they crunched just right. The salsa... More
