People come here mostly for their custom made hand crafted Buritos. The line moves fast and you will not be disappointed. Not much sitting room and a bit sparse, mostly a take out place. You direct what you want in your Burrito and then the cooks go to work for you. Priced right and so so much better than any... More

Wow, what a great place. I grew up in San Diego Ca eating at places like this. I can't believe I found one in Haverhill MA. The men working there were very happy to serve us. There was a little line when we got there. It's always a good feeling when the line is all locals. We had tacos plate... More

Wasn't impressed. Especially with all the hype. They have big portions sure, but the quality is big on mediocre as well. Customer service could also use a tune-up...

What is a Horchata? Read on....We had heard that this was worth trying, so we did, and we were really glad we did! Talk about authentic! All we heard from the moment we walked in the door was the buzz of the customers...almost all of whom were Spanish speaking. It could have been intimidating but we were welcomed and helped... More

One of the best home flavored food I tested in the last few months! Both the quesadilla and burrito are good. The taste and service is gold! Love it! Nothing compared to Chipotle for home authentic test.

I figured I would give some local reviews, and this is the first one I wanted to mention. Tacos Lupita doesn't look like much on the outside, but it is hands down the best value for delicious food in Haverhill. The burritos are delicious, and under $6...QUALITY FOOD, quickly, for less than Taco Bell or McDonalds! Most people do takeout... More

It is very hard to find good Mexican food in New England. Tacos Lupita serves very good Mexican good. They would be successful anywhere. I can only comment on the tacos since that is all I ever eat. The tacos are excellent, in particular the pork tacos on corn tortillas. It is similar to very good street food - very,... More

I dropped into Tacos Lupita hoping for one of those lucky, transcendent street food experiences like Dallas' famous-and-rightfully-so Taqueria El Si Hay (see http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g55711-d865163-Reviews-Taqueria_El_Si_Hay-Dallas_Texas.html). The reviews for Tacos Lupita here and on Yelp trend positive. I was very hopeful. Sadly, I should have set my expectations somewhat lower. Tacos Lupita is a disappointing restaurant on all fronts. Tacos Lupita has... More

Best elements of a burrito truck, with indoor seating thrown in. Cafeteria style (or to-go), but a friendly atmosphere. Usually futbal or a Mexican soap opera on the TV for entertainment. Parking a little tough, but I've never gotten a ticket. Great gorditas (take a little longer); really good burros. Order a pupusa to eat while waiting for the gordita.
