Warm welcome

I really enjoy this place. The servers/owner are always very friendly. The food is authentic. Hubby had the steak fajitas tonite which were cooked with jalapenos that gave them some kick he liked. I had a combo plate which was very good. Going to take some friends next time who have never tried... read more

Topeka is blessed with good small Mexican restaurants. This one is clearly not the best one but it is down town and accessible and the food is good, but again, not great. Worth the money.

I ate here on a business trip to Topeka - it was a convenient location downtown that I hadn't been to yet. This place appeared to have another room, but it was dark. For a work day lunch downtown, I was a bit surprised it wasn't busier. That being said, there were a few seats available in the smaller seating... More

My daughter took her family there while visiting me in Topeka. They said the food was fantastic very authentic there was so much food they couldn't eat most of it and took some home which was a great deal later on when they didn't feel like cooking after touring around Topeka.

I like Lupitas however it's upsetting that certain items on menu you can't get until after 1PM. Like eggs and chorizo . that's a breakfast item yet you can't get it until after 1PM. Otherwise it's a really nice place to work.

My friends and I went to eat there on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Got there at 11:30 waited 45 mintues for cold food that had no taste. The most bland mexican food I have ever had. Tables were dirty, and empty needing to be bussed - even though the line was out the door. Felt rushed through the menu... More

The food is what your abuelita might fix and it's served by your favorite cousins. This is where you need to go when you want a taste of home.

We've been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Great authentic-style food--much better than some other Mexi places around here. The first time we went they were swamped but still got great service. Now we compare other Mexican places to Lupitas! :)

Lupita's is our favorite Mexican place in Topeka. The food is very good (husband loves the chorizo soft tacos), and we love that we've gotten to know the family who runs it. The decor is a little funky, but that shouldn't stop you from trying it.
