We go here often, so we've gotten into a routine where they know what we like and have the guacamole ready for us. We've tried a lot of their menu. Love the enchilada sauce, both red and green. Spinach salad is good and definitely enough as an entree. The cheese tamale is divine. Nachos could feed an army. Decor is kitschy, but pleasant. This is not authentic Mexican, but it's good comfort food. Service can be spotty when they're busy, but so far, we've been willing to overlook that.

The food is authentic Mexican (unlike the ho-hum chains), the flavors are incredible, the portions huge (especially the Pork Carnita burrito - yumm!) and the prices are reasonable and a good value. Their margaritas are wonderful and the service is great. In the summer, you can sit outside in the back porch area. WELL WORTH eatting here once and you'll be hooked forever!

This restaurant may look like a run down, hole-in-the-wall place but IT'S NOT!!! It's family owned and they're very welcoming. Our family always enjoys Lupe's so give them a try!

For lunch or dinner, this is a casual mexican restaurant with good basic food. They have the BEST mole sauce and I love the chicken enchiladas. Margaritas are excellant. Family owned, friendly, funky, this place has been around for years. The prices are good, the food is uncomplicated, portions generous...nothing fancy here -- iceburg lettuce in your salad. For a family place, a gathering of friends, a great patio in the summer...try it out! For what it is, it's one of the best ---

Is it a hole in the wall? Yes! Is it a local joint? Yes! Is the food good? YES!!

Lupe's has been one of my favorite places for nearly 20 years. The freshness and consistency of their food is just outstanding. Starting with a smooth, tasty salsa with just the right bite, their menu is filled with Mexican favorites in a colorful setting. Our kids love all the Mexican marionettes and sombreros and the interesting rooms.

The service is fast and efficient. While you might feel a bit cramped on a busy night, everyone around you is having such a good time it doesn't seem to matter.

Our family's favorites include the burritos which are huge, and the chiles rellanos which to me are just unbeatable. I have tried this dish a lot of places and have always been disappointed in comparison. Cheesy, creamy and oh man! Bring me more!!

Prices are very reasonable and they have a good selection of Mexican beers.

Love, love love!!
