Best chicken fajitas in a long time

Really enjoyed this "typical" Tex-Mex joint with a friend and her family while visiting Houston. Had the best chicken fajitas and fresh tortillas I have had since back in the days of Rio Bravo Cantina. The table side guacamole was great and so was the fresh salsa. Margaritas were good too!

While the covered patio is at the front of the restaurant closer to the interstate, the bar area opens up with big garage doors, so you get the al fresco atmosphere with less noise. As always with Lupe, I think the taste of the salsa is top notch - I just wish it was a smooth mix rather than juice... More

I like Lupe Tortilla, it is a nice Mexican option with a higher quality than the average. The Margarita is something special!

It's hard to find really good Mexican food around Philly, so I avoid it. While visiting my daughter in Houston, she convinced me to give Lupe's a try. The waiter asked if we had ever been there before and I told him that I had not and was not crazy about Tex Mex. The manager arrived at the table with... More

Quite a disappointing visit this time around. The Guacamole was quite bland, the starters where brought in late and at the same time with the main course. For a moment I thought I had ordered Anchovies Tortilla soup, it turns out it was only an extremely salty chicken tortilla soup. The burrito wasn't good, the tacos not much better and... More

We love this place, not your typical Tex-Mex style of food. Great service and food quality is excellent. Good sized portions.

Two of my favorites here are the fajitas and the fish tacos. Also try the freshly made guacamole. They also have a wide selection of other dishes. They do a nice job on their margaritas, and happy hour pricing is quite good.

Our family has dined at many locations starting with the original location when Stan's kids were not chest high. We have had dozens of meals both lunch and dinner. The food is usually good to great and the service is usually good. We went early to beat the rush. Unfortunately this night was a disaster all the way around. They... More

I have tried Lupe once prior to this and it was pretty good so I took my wife as she has not had good Mexican cuisine in Texas after several attempts. The service was unbelievable! It was refreshing to be treated like royalty, seriously. They asked if we had been to Lupe before and explained their fajita offering and how... More

The beef fajitas are a must try at Lupe Tortillas! Beef is tender and the flavor is heavenly! If you are looking to a little kick I also get the cilantro jalapeno chicken. Yummy for my tummy 😃 There's usually a wait in the weekend but that's typical usually shorter than the time they tell you. Hector is a great... More
