The Absolute BEST Mexican Food

I have been going here for over 20 years. Absolutely the best Soft Cheekin' Tacos!! The food, the drinks and the service make this place a must BUT plan to wait as it can take over an hour to get a table.

The food was excellent! The staff was on time-great servers! The manager was fantastic! He made us happy. We will go back to this place! The Manager was Raphael Hernandez. I was fearful to go there after reading a previous post. The whole experience was high dollar service at a lower dollar cost! GREAT!

For the immediate vicinity, Lupe's probably has some of the best Mexican food around. The food is certainly plentiful and fresh. Specific good foods include the puffy tacos filled with seafood like shrimp or the fajitas - both are great options. The enchiladas are good, but probably not the best item on the menu. Margaritas are good, but probably not... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat when we visit the Houston area. Love the fajitas and peppered shrimp.

Great Mexican restaurant that is not your standard Tex-Mex faire. We all had excellent meals, and the servings were very generous. Service was very attentive.

This was my very first bite from a Tex-mex cuisine, and I can tell you, it was not bad at all. Fajitas came with enough for the three of us who were there, we just told that we wanted fajitas for 3 mixed with everything and voila!!! Great food. I recommend for anyone looking for Tex-mex food, there are several... More

I think I visited this place for my first time in 1994 or so, still the same concept , prices are very good, food is delicious and the ambience is a family oriented one. We have loved this place for those years and still recommend it to anyone.

We choose Lupe's Tortilla's on the recommendation of a friend, boy were we impressed! We were going on a cruise and arrived the evening before our trip with the intention of having a nice dinner and it was darn good! Made for us at our table guacamole! The best we ever tasted yum! Tomatoes, onions melted cheese and don't forget... More

The Original Lupe Tortillas is in an eclectic and slightly funky old house that has been added on to over the years. We started with a margarita that was just average. The chips we were served were thin and not very good. But they were served with a very good fresh salsa that was not spicy and a bowl of... More
