Good Food, Service and Atmosphere

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... read 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

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.

Great food waitress the best. Rebecca is the best. Ask for her. Busy place but service fast. We sat in bar area.

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
