This was our "be lazy" part of our trip and we hadn't yet picked up a rental car. Lunch year was a bacon cheeseburger so dripping with Greece that one couldn't pick up the bottom half of the bun. Dinner (this was the closest place to where we will stay in) included well season though overdone pork chops and fajitas... More

Had 3 orders of kan kan pork chops and enchiladas. Pork chop sizes were big but well done cooked too much actually burned on edges-so much it was inedible but we were so hungry we didn't send it back. Enchiladas were good nothing spectacular. Drinks we over priced but they did give you a good drink. Overall we were disappointed... More

We came here on Ash Wednesday looking for a seafood or meatless dish. I choose the fish burrito and was not disappointed. The margarita I had with it was very good as well.

We went to Lupi's the night we arrived in San Juan. Our flight was late and after getting settled at 9:59 we were looking for a place to eat. Lupi's was right next door to our hotel ESJ, and so we gave it a go. The fajita's were advertised as the best and so we went for that! They certainly... More

Looked for a casual armosohere - found their outside patio hit the spot. Very good fish taco, perfectly seasoned pork chops. Attentive staff, very enjoyable dinner!

Aten here twice on a recent trip to San Juan. The burrito and enchiladas were very good. If you are staying in the area I recommend this restaurant.

I had the grouper appetizer which was very good. San Juan is pricey for dining. The appetizer was $ 10 but the medium margarita was $ 14. I decided I would stop at one! The food I watched around me being served looked authentic and it's the only Mexican restaurant I found in the vicinity. Another plus - they have... More

The food was OK but definitely not Mexican except in name only. Drinks good. Service typically slow Island. Should rename restaurant to PR-Mex.

The food here is good and the location is great with parking but the portions are too small and it's a bit overpriced for what it is.

Despite the mixed reviews, we decided to give Lupi’s a try as the food looked good and, fleeing the winter weather of the Midwest, we really wanted to sit outside and enjoy the evening’s beautiful December San Juan weather. We were very pleased with our experience; the outdoor seating and atmosphere was nice and festive, the service was prompt and... More
