I hadn't enjoyed my meals since I've been in Puerto Rico and once I came here I was finally able to complete a full meal. Hours later I went back for more since it was the only place I enjoyed. I definitely recommend this location to everyone.

everything is crazy expensive here but was near our hotel, so we tried it out of convenience. the dish was good; a burrito, rice, beans, how could you screw that up anyway? weird to have Mexican food in PR. I'd skip this place and try other local options I have reviewed. Slowest service out of all the places we tried.... More

Food was average, but were I took points away was the waiter not telling us that there were no "free" refills on soda's. Bottom line he scammed us, so his tip reflected his dishonesty.

We ate here on the recommendation of our taxi driver from the airport. He was originally from Texas so we assumed he would at least able to recommend a good Mexican restaurant. We should have listened to my friend who has been to PR and lived for a month for the past 4 years. She said "there is no good... More

Checked out Lupi's to end my birthday on a great note. ..walked up and chose our table. The waiter was so nice and had us laughing from the start. Even the mgr/owner came over to wish me a very happy birthday. Had the 'mild' margarita which packed a strong punch. Great place...right on the main street.

The food was ok. We're from Houston,Tx so we know a thing or two about Mex food. We had various mex dishes that were OK. Burger was big and made to order. No free refills on tea. Great service. Food average.

Service was prompt and friendly. The food was okay, nothing particularly special. We opted for ball park wings, Garlic Shrimp Monfongo, a shrimp wrap and a Miami vice to drink. Wings were great, my boyfriend enjoyed his wrap. I thought the monfongo was a bit dry and stiff but I've never had it so I can't say if it wasn't... More
