“Fun, festive and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed tasty frozen margaritas and a delicious guacamole dip prepared at our table. The outdoor seating in a walled in patio was fun and festive. The beef fajitas were very good along with exceptionally tasty home made tortillas. A great place to go with family and friends.

“Amazing beef fajitas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We have had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant about 10 times. Our first visit we had typical Mexican food fare and once our waitress realized it was our first visit, she encouraged us to return for their beef fajitas. We were intrigued and went the next night. She was not overselling; the fajitas were tender and the flavor was the best we had ever encountered. The tortillas are handmade and are about as big as a plate; they will ruin you for tortillas anywhere else. The margaritas are ok, not the best I've had. The con I will list is that the restaurant can be very loud. We've sat in every room, so for a little peace and to be able to have a conversation, ask to be seated in a room with the fewest tables. If the weather is nice, definitely sit out on the patio. Nice ambience.

“Simply Dreadful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We have been going tho the original Lupe's location ( the first one ) for 16 years.It used to be the best tex-mex in town until they branded.Now the sand box for the kids is gone,it has become from Family friendly to not-family friendly,with a much busier bar and a absolutely dreadful food.What a disappointment !

“Great food, reasonable price, fun atmoshphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had a business lunch with some customers in the area and was extremely happy. The portions were huge and incredibly full of flavor.

The atmosphere is fun, though it does get a little loud, but what would you expect at a mexican cantina.

“Mex Tex like you live there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Wow, a great traditional MexTex place with home made tortillas and salsa. The food was excellent, quick service and very fresh. Most MexTex places use pre-prepared food. This place is all straight from the grill to the plate. Go! Good place with good good.
