I love eating at Lupe Tortilla's! I have never had a bad meal or bad service here. You start with the chips served with beans and freshly made salsa. I'm no fan of beans, but this is one of the few places that I totally enjoy salsa. I always order some version of the create your own platter and take... More

By far the BEST atmospheric and fun Mexican restaurant in town! Great food! I highly suggest the "Soft Cheekin' Taco's" . Only "negative, was it was a bit warm inside, but not overly so. Great place to take little ones to play outside in the sand area, or to take out of towners looking for a fun place to go... More

Probably the most notable restaurant in the area, Lupe Tortilla is located on a backstreet of Houston's energy corridor, and is a popular meeting spot for business types and their clients. Casual atmosphere, cheesy entree names ("Cheekin", "Feesh"), cheesy food (Monterey Jack on everything), and even a play area outside for the kids. I had the "Cheekin" Lupe, which tasted... More

I was traveling in Houston and was told that this place was a must. I ordered the beef fajitas and they came out with flour tortillas they make fresh, thin with their own press. Absolutely wonderful!

I went for the Steak Lupe, very good that and a nice margarita. My colleagues had different fajitas, they were well impressed. Also a nice mexican lager was on offer.

We used to visit Lupe's in Katy but could never get in there as two crowed even mid week. We now drive a little further to the original Lupe's where we can always get a table especially mid week. Friday and Saturday nights can get busy. We also like to sit at the bar where we always get fantastic service.

I Loved the home made Salsa and Tortillas. I ordered the Carne Asada and it was absolutely melt in your mouth delicious. Lupe's was also a fun aura of beautiful aromas and laughter. A Great Mexican Cantina.

Lupe Tortilla was the first Mexican restaurant we were taken to while house hunting in 2000. It was a terrific dinner place for people with small children. Now my children are grown-ups, and Lupe's still has the fun and funky atmosphere with very friendly staff. Get there at 11 if you have a large party, and make sure everyone's there,... More

A great place to eat fajitas and enjoy other good tex-mex. The homemade tortillas are as good as they come and they make a very good margarita too! The service was good until we paid the bill and the waiter did not return our credit card. Once it was called to their attention, it was found and returned.
