On the spur of the moment, we stopped here after work and had a very filling dinner. Chips, queso, charro beans and salsa were the appetizers. We nearly filled up on that. We continued to devour our main course of Tacos al Carbon. Authentic Mexican music played and the decorations made us feel welcomed.

We were in Houston for a long weekend. Living in California now, we've missed ourTexMex. Our kids (who live in Houston) chose Lupe Tortilla's. We started with the blood orange margaritas. They were so good! We were served complimentary salsa and whole beans with chips. Yum! We ordered queso. Also yum! I have totally missed cheese enchiladas with chili con... More

We've gone several times and ordered various dishes, but the fajitas are the best, hands-down. They've totally spoiled me for fajitas in other restaurants. My daughters and I usually share an order, single for two of us and a double-order if there's three of us, and we always have plenty of food. Yum! But they get really busy in the... More

I enjoyed the blood orange margarita I had, I was not impressed with the food at all, very processed and tasted very cheap. The waiters were unfriendly and were complaining because we went as a large group but we had called and given them notice.

Stopped in for dinner on a business trip and was not disappointed. I had the Carne Asada and it was delicious. Queso and Chips are also very good.

Came here for lunch with a coworker and the hardest part was finding a parking spot. We even went to lunch at 11:30 am to beat the lunch rush but the parking around that area was still packed due to several restaurants. Walked in and sat right down. Ordered within a couple minutes and the food came out super quick.... More

OK so the 3 pepper cheese steak is where it's at at Lupe Tortilla. I believe it's the same marinade they use on the fajitas but you can't beat a whole skirt steak to yourself. Dishes that I am also addicted to are the Cilantro and Jalapeno Chicken and the Tequila Chicken. Order any of those and you will leave... More

In general, Lupe Tortilla is about a 3.5 star restaurant, but this particular location is a 2. After the hostess checked with our party three times to make sure that we were indeed a table of 6 ADULTS, we were seated in a section that was clearly intended for families with young children. Our table was adjacent to four others,... More

I had a family gathering here for my birthday last year. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. I love the Tex Mex style food. I always get the ribs, they are the best!

Came early to try and beat the dinner crowd. The place was already packed. Asked the server for the best thing one the menu. Was brought the 3 pepper steak. If I wasn't too full I'd ordered another to eat. It was that delicious. Not one complaint.
