Grand champion steer

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.

The waitress was nice enough but was working 5 or 6 tables was overwhelmed.....did they ever think about having someone help her with drinks and... More

Had girl's night out here and frankly, it was nothing special. I had pepper shrimp - bacon wrapped, jalapeño stuffed grilled shrimp. The baa on was borderline burnt and I saw no jalapeño nor did I taste any. The rice and beans weren't anything special. The homemade tortillas were huge, paper thin and no taste. The other ladies got the... More

Think twice before going to this restaurant with a large group of people. We went on a Sat. evening and had to wait about 40 minutes for a table. They do NOT take reservations. When we were finally seated, we told the waiter there were two of us celebrating birthdays. The waiter never suggested singing or anything else, yet we... More

Have been to Lupe many times and love their food. But their service is horrible. We like to sit at the bar at restaurants because you almost always get great service there. Not at Lupe anymore. About 6 months ago the regular bartender left and ever since has been terrible. It is a real shame because the food is so... More

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
