“Great fish ceviche , authentic Mexican , very reasonably priced!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Lupitas may just be the best Mexican food on Lake Tahoe. It isn't as scenic as other Mexican restaurants but the food is a lot nicer and very authentic. We took visitors tonight and they were raving about the ceviche (fish OR shrimp) that is beautifully balanced with lime and coconut milk and always fresh. The mole sparkles. The tacos beat anything in the region. Best of all the prices are amazing. Tonight it was packed, but generally it is not crowded. The service is great and it is really cozy in winter. They also do food to go. A must if you crave real authentic Mexican.

“Great Southwestern, Great Value.”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

The food was excellent, true Tex-Mex and the prices were quite reasonable. The salsa was delicious. I have a very hard time getting spicy food at Mexican restaurants, but here they made it perfectly! The rest of the family, who don't always love spicy, also found it to be great. The only negative I saw was that the food was slow in coming. Not terrible, but not as fast as we would have liked.

“Best Mexican food for the value in North Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

We ask several locals as to where to grab some good Mexican food. All three directed us to the same place -Lupita's in Incline Village. The food was authentic, hardy and inexpensive. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for great Mexican food at reasonable prices

“Authenticity at Bargain Prices”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Lupita's is our GO-TO Mexican restaurant when we visit Incline Village. In addition to offering the standard Mexican fare, items like ceviche and lengua, which are delicious, are also a staple. The pesca diabla and naranja was especially tasty. Chips and pico de gallo (salsa) are complimentary which is becoming more rare these days and the service is very welcoming. There is a lunch special (combo plates $6) before 2pm.
