Lupe's is an old established Mexican restaurant that has withstood the test of time as other Mexican restaurants have come and gone. They serve good quality food at reasonable prices that are affordable for family and friends.

This place has been around forever so it must be good right? Boy was I wrong. Nothing special or unique about this food at all. I could not believe how bland this food was. Again , it has been around a very long time so I just assumed it was good. Basic, boring Mexican food with no unique features or... More

Oh Lupe's how I have missed you! I moved to ATL 4 years ago and can't find good Mexican food. Returned to T.O. to visit and went to Lupe's twice- it's that good! Just such good food. LOVE the tacos! Taco Monday, gets crowded- go early.

I ordered takeout from this restaurant that has been there for generations. My wife and I use to go there often but have not been there for quite some time. I order their Steak Picada which was advertised a Top Sirloin. I asked that they do not over cook the meat. It came and one bite of the dish had... More

The first thing I noticed when we entered was the excessively loud noises. It wasn't just people talking but the doors banging, the ice machine, the dishes from the kitchen, the silverware clanking and other racket which were very annoying and difficult to talk above. I also noticed right away that the cloth backing in the booths was dirty and... More

Old-timers love the place, but if you expect TexMex, Sanora style, or G O O D Mexican food - - LOL. It's straight for the can and even the frijoles are bland. Chilli Verde is homu too.
