People flock here for lunch. I think they bill themselves as winning some special Houston award. I say "meh". Standard Tex-Mex place with salty food, plates that hit the table with a bang as the staff tries to turn the lunch tables, and shoulder to shoulder tables.

This is the original Lupe Tortilla location, and it looks it. The interior is seriously in need of an update, the parking is difficult and there is very little handicapped parking available. The food here used to be some of the best Tex-Mex in Houston (which is saying a lot!), but after dining there last night, I think they are... More

Went to lunch at the recommendation of my granddaughter and her boy friend. They were right on with the food being real Tex-Mex and delicious. I'm a stickler for service. Here I could not find anything to speak about and the place was packed for lunch. We'll now keep this place on our radar screen for lunch and dinner.

We had past by the Lupe Tortilla many times and noticed how busy it always is, so we decided to stop. It was well worth it. The food was good and the service was great. We loved the decor of the restaurant and the atmosphere of the place. It was a good experience and I know we will be back.

We have lots of Tex-Mex places in Louisiana and this place wasn't anything special. I wouldn't recommend this place at all. They claim they have slow service because they hand make their tortillas. The tortillas were fresh and did taste pretty good but it wasn't worth the rest. The margaritas were terrible and my kids didn't care for the virgin... More

The restaurant sits in an old house with rooms used for dining. There is a small bar and plenty of exterior seats. The first thing you notice is that there were plenty of Mexican décor hanging off the walls. On their website they advertise half-pound ($28) or one pound ($48) filet mignon fajitas which I had not had before. When... More

Once a week for us, great food, atmosphere, service, price, margaritas! If you haven't tried it, please do, the ORIGINAL Lupes Tortilas. A must off taking visitors, children's sand pit. Just consistent, try it!

Looks like a standard Texas tex-mex restaurant, and at its core, I guess it is. But food is well above average. In bar area, self serve chips and salsa. Very good. Limited beer selection (Lite, Bud Light, XX green, Modelo Especial, and Negra Modelo). Drafts are $6 for 22-oz Had 3-pepper steak ($17 - most expensive item on menu -... More
