We live in California so we know and love Mexican food. This was some of the best we have had. My husband had Machaca and I had a Chimichanga. Both dishes were full of shredded beef and lots of goodies. We wanted our meal to go since we had been on the road all day and wanted to watch USA... More

We had a long delayed drive from Vegas to cedar city and stopped he for a meal. The rice and beans are authentic and excellent. My meal came out incorrect but it was quickly resolved. The salsa bar is awesome! Limited cocktails but great selection of meal items. The service was very good too.

We stopped in at Lupita's for lunch today and what a good lunch we had. For starters the chips and salsa were home made fresh, and delicious. They also have a free salsa bar with a nice assortment of delicious salsas and three kinds of beans. My wife and I both had the chicken fajita burrito. It came with rice... More

This was a great lunch stop for us and the pablano chile relleno was the best we've had since our friend from Mexico made them for us. Service is a little slow but with more than 10 different salsas to try at the salsa bar, we didn't mind. I'd definitely go again! It's a favorite of the locals so travelers... More

Based on tripadvisor ratings, we decided to have lunch at Lupita's in Cedar City. There were about four other parties in the restaurant, and we were immediately welcomed and seated. In short, it was fairly good Mexican food. My wife had the enchilada special, and I had a smothered carne asada burrito. Both served with rice and beans. Both dishes... More

Heard this place was great. It took 45 min or more to receive our food. There were just two of us. My husband ordered a chimichanga and taco and I ordered fajitas. The rice had a weird flavor. We ordered margaritas and the stems of the glasses felt like they had not been washed. The sour cream and guacamole that... More

A salsa bar to die for. I love hot salsa, flavorful salsa, spicy salsa, pico de gallo, etc. and all were available at their salsa bar. We came into town from a road trip, starving, and stopped in for lunch as we passed through Cedar City. The friendly staff had us seat ourselves. We ordered drinks, combo dinners and a... More

As "out of towners" we were looking for and inexpensive place to eat, we like Mexican food, so Lupita's it was as it was not only one of the best rated, but also one of the closest restaurants to our hotel. The restaurant has a family flair to it and a large menu. All food we ordered came out quickly... More
