Great Place to Meet for Lunch off I-10 and Hwy 6 S

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.

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.

Lupe's is pretty consistent across the area. This location, being close to the energy corridor is a great place to go for a quick lunch. Just make sure you go a little early to beat the 11:30 rush!

I have been eating TexMex sine I was a kid in Houston; Lupe has it all figured out. Simple restaurant with helpfu;/friendly staff and SUPERB food. Drinks are the same--SUPERB. You will need a reservation--call early and expect a big crowd chowing down on enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, fish, taco salad and more. Margaritas and beer go down great with the... More

The food is good, the service is as well. The margaritas are very good. Thy the "Tonight's the Night" margarita. The chicken enchiladas are my favorite.

So good that we ate there two nights out of three when in the area for business. Great family gathering or ask for more private table if just for two. Nice indoor outdoor connection when the weather is mild.

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.
