Very bad service. My meal was ten minutes late after my wife was nearly finished with her meal. Which had a very dry (pre made) enchilada. They also forgot my beans & rice which took forever to get there. Lots of fly's which don't seem to bother the staff. I don't know what the heck these positive reviews are about.... More

We were rushed to order our food, the waiter stood there and looked at us while we hurried to decide, making us really uncomfortable. When the food came out the girl that brought us our food didn't speak. We tried to ask what dish she had and she didn't say a word. So as she brought our plates, one by... More

This is an excellent place for casual Mexican food in Topeka, Kansas. It is right downtown on Kansas Street. I had 3 soft tacos, and a XX, and my only regret is that I couldn't order more things. Prices are very reasonable. Atmosphere is very laid back, in the small time shoe string budget way.They may even be out of... More

Lupita's has the best chicken soft tacos around! Be sure to get them in the "mexican style" with pico and no cheese, if you really want to taste the quality. You can tell that their food is made fresh and isn't reheated. Support a real family-owned restaurant!

Though I am not particularly fond of Mexican food, the staff at Lupita's takes care to prepare food just the way the customer prefers. In fact, the last time I was there the waiter squatted down beside me and inquired in specific terms what suits my taste buds. He "hit the nail on the head" in the spices, textures, and... More

The menu is very large. The Mexican Restaurant is downtown with good large portions of food. The prices are good with family atmosphere and good service.

Much like a cafe, this casual eatery is hosted by an energetic family that is very proud of their restaurant. All four of us ordered different dishes and all were served on large portions. Unfortunately, the food did not taste that great and the entrees with ground beef tasted odd.

Service is good. The menu is huge, the food is ok. The portions are large and it's a good value. The atmosphere is kid friendly, but I've only eaten there during the day.

Topeka is blessed with good small Mexican restaurants. This one is clearly not the best one but it is down town and accessible and the food is good, but again, not great. Worth the money.
