An acquaintance at a party recommended Lupe Tortilla to me about a year ago. His passion for the place was convincing so we decided to try it during an afternoon outing. Well, he was right. The place is pretty darn good for a Tex-Mex restaurant chain. The first test is always the chips and salsa and they pass with flying... More

Great food, get there early there's a long wait, but it was worth it. Our service could have been a little better, but they were busy so I'm guessing it was just due to that. The beef fajitas may be the best I've ever had.

We had dinner here with friends who recommended it. We had reservations but were early. They seated us within a few minutes of our arrival. The service was good and the meal and drinks were very good. They are known for their fajitas and I see why. They were delicious! The prices were reasonable. We will go there again when... More

The fajitas here are amazing (better than anywhere I have ever had) and it was nice to have a choice of corn and flour tortillas. We enjoyed the margaritas as well and can't wait to visit again!

We got to the restaurant and waited for about 40 min. which you expect to wait on Sat night. We sat down and it took right over an hour to get our food. We asked the waiter (why so long) and he said they make everything when we order it . I guess it takes a long time to make... More

Great restaurant that has a nice outside patio where you can enjoy the night air or watch the game from the bar area. The wait to get in on a weekend is a little long but you can have a delicious margarita at the full service bar while waiting. Service is great and you must try the chicken nachos, very... More

I've been here numerous times. The beef fajitas are the best I've ever had. Their margaritas are exceptional as well. Their other food is ok--I really only go there for the beef fajitas. They are chile-lime marinated, grilled to perfection, and always tender. Keep in mind, they are VERY proud of their beef fajitas and price them accordingly--$39.99 for 1lb.... More

On our first day visiting San Antonio from Minnesota we stopped at Lupe's to meet some rarely seen friends. Approaching the building, I was dreading the homogenized, bland experience that corporate chains do so well and, from all outward appearances, this place looked corporate. Lupe's is situated in a recently built suburban strip mall anchored by the local big box... More

It's ok. The guacamole is very good and much of everything else is very good. But nothing special. This is Texas so I expected outstanding meat in tex mex style. But it was just good, not outstanding. Service was also good, but slow.
