Fun Mexican Family Style Restaraunt

Very delicious Tex-Mex food with a whimsical flair of fun and ambience. The wait staff is very attentive and efficient. The hustle and bustle makes this more of a kid friendly spot, especially at peak hours. Good margaritas! I recommend the fajitas for two...way plenty on food!

We arrived at 3, not very crowded. Immediately ordered 2 happy hour drinks. Waiter assured that all drinks were on happy hour price. 10 minutes later ordered queso. Queso arrived, still no drinks. I guess the bartender was on a break or something. 23 minutes after placing our drink order in a not busy restaurant during happy hour our drinks... More

The food is good though. First test of a good Mexican restaurant is the chips and salsa. I LOVE the salsa. The ensalada verde is amazing. Last night I had the crab stuffed abaca do which was excellent. We couldn't find our waiter most of the time, went to the bar to get a refill...on WATER! And he got my... More

On our journey home from South Padre Island we stopped in San Antonio for lunch. The server recommended their "World Famous Fajitas". I tried the Filet Mignon Fajitas, my grown son had regular beef fajitas, husband had the Juan and kids had a variety of items from the kids menu. Save your money and don't upgrade to the Filet Mignon,... More

Great Mexican food, some of the best I have ever had. Have indoor and outdoor seating. They serve a bean "dip" with the chips and salsa that is very tasty and a change from just chips and salsa. Service is great. Specialty drinks are very good. You may have to wait sometimes, but wait is not very long unless you... More

Had dinner this past week at Lupe's in SA. I did not know they had expanded from Houston, but am happy they did. Atmosphere is good for all; families with children playing outside, the bar and dining area for adults. They are able to pull it all off. Had queso, salsa and combo fajitas (beef and shrimp), all were good.... More

Atmosphere was superb, open, with a " welcome feeling"! From the minute you walked in, the Staff greeted you, no wait time. We were sat down, our waiter was great.

Went to lunch today and they charged $39.95 for a pound of beef fajitas. Must have been a grand champion steer for that price. Will never return.
