We have been going to Lupita's for a very long time, tonight our family ordered the usual (taco chicken tostada rice and beans) rice and beans ok, not that good chicken was hard as a rock! Ask the older lady, she has always been nice to me and my family. Straight got nasty... More

This restaurant was simply the very basics in decor, the food was way below average and the service was lacking. What can you say, not recommended, although the restaurant was quite full which was surprising. It was near several hotels so maybe it was the convenience although our hotel clerk recommended it. One can do much better hopefully in Cedar... More

They have great Fajita Burritos. I really recommend the Chicken with Nacho Cheese Sauce. They also have some of the best salsas.

We were excited to go because reviewers gave it an 8.5 out of 10. What a mistake. It was very warm inside to start with. I had to use the restroom ( which was dirty ) my feet stuck to the floor. Then the service began. They were just about empty inside, maybe two other tables. It took about 30... More

A tacky entry that serves as a schlock shop, inattentive wait staff, sub par food not coming out as ordered THREE TIMES!!!, filthy bathrooms, and waiting about 20 minutes at our table to pay our bill, only to be told by another customer that we had to take our bill up to the counter to pay, makes Lupita's a place...

Great family and friendly atmosphere and the food is very affordable and delicious! I have never been to Mexico so cannot claim it is authentic or not but it certainly is yummy and worth the stop if you have ever in Cedar City.

While driving from Bryce Canyon towards Yosemite we stopped at lupitas for lunch. We got carne asada and a combo of enchilada, taco, and chile relleno. We're are quite picky about Mexican food as we only enjoy authentic Mexican taste and not TexMex but we were happily surprised to find exactly this. All in all this was a great experience... More

The chips and salsa were good. You can really taste the cilantro in the salsa. We got a bean dip appetizer and we both got a guacamole torta. The guacamole was excellent. Prices were on par with the Mexican places we go near our home. Service was friendly, attentive, and quick considering how busy they were.

This was horrible. I've never had such trash described as Mexican food. The meat is crap, the cheese dip crap, sauces crap. Still had stickers on bottom of plastic cups. How are you really washing them and the easy peel stickers not coming off? If you think this is decent food then you need to either get out more or... More

My husband and I stopped in on our way home from Colorado based on Trip Advisor reviews. Whenever possible, we stay away from chains and try to seek out family owned or independent restaurants. We ordered chicken enchiladas and they were excellent!!!! We also appreciated that we could order a full strength Mexican beer, not always easy in Utah. Margaritas... More
