Ate lunch here with the girls. We all enjoyed our meal. The chips and salsa are good and the chicken chimi was delish. Good service too. We will be back.

Really good food. Honestly the best mexican food for miles. Service in store is almost always slow. People are nice, but sloooooow. Drinks are good and specials are good too. If the service was better this place would easily be a 5.

We've lived near Mi Lupita for a few years and on a whim decided to try it out. Turns out we've been missing out on a hidden gem. The food was absolutely delicious and came out hot, and our waitress was very friendly and refilled drinks and chips before we even had to ask. We'll definitely be back.

The food is fresh and tasty, the atmosphere cozy, the service fast and friendly, the margaritas are KILLER! We've lived in Ballwin for over 30 years and just started coming to this place this year. It's a small place, and always crowded for dinner, but never had to wait more than 20 minutes or so. Well worth the wait!

This place is the type of place that you wish will never change. Friendly staff, great for families, and good food. This isn't El Maguey, this is much better.

Our family's first pick for Mexican cuisine is always Las Cuates...but since that restaurant is in Albuquerque, we have had to hit up most of the Mexican restaurants in the city. Mi Lupita is a wonderful restaurant with great service, excellent food with a nice edge to their flavor. They also have a simple kids menu for the 'not so... More
