“Upper end Mexican and pricey”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We head over for lunch occasionally. Lunch fajitas are good but i think they are in the 15+ range. Same with the taco salad, very good but pricey. Also i think they have reduced the size of the salad over the last few years. Feel like there is better value elsewhere so we only hit this place a couple times of year. If you have cash then this is a good stop.

“Three hours? Really?”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Ok, we had a larger than normal group on a Saturday evening. 14 people including a few children. We arrived at 6:20 and were told 45 minutes. We could understand that. As we sat outside in the 90+ degree heat we noticed another large group gathering. After about 1 hour we inquired and were told that the table was being cleaned and we were next. Imagine our surprise when the OTHER group (Probably 20 people) was called in. When we asked about it we were told they were there first. No way! It almost looked like one of the employees were "friends" with some in the group. If we hadn't had so much time invested we would have left at this point. Finally, at 7:50, 1.5 hours after we arrived, we were let in and seated. Our server was great and none of this was her fault. Once we were seated and had drinks it was another 30 minutes before our orders were took.

Overall, this was just a bad Lupe experience. The food was good, but it was 9:30 before we were leaving the restaurant! Three hours! I don't care how big the group is or what night it is, this is BAD business. I would have been happier if they would have just admitted up front that it was a bad night for a group our size and sent us on our way.

“The best Mexican restaurant in town”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We visit this restaurant any time we're in the area. The beef fajitas are delicious. In fact, everything we have ever eaten has been terrific. Great margaritas and queso as well.

“Friendly service, Great food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is always busy, so go early if you are in a hurry. They do have seating outside and by the bar. Complimentary chips are served hot, along with salsa, and a bean type dip that is more like a soup.They are not the typical grease loaded ones you usually get for free. The Fajitas are great, and are served with a generous side of pico,cheese,and quacamole....all very fresh. They serve freshly made corn tortillas that are light and soft...just perfect! While we were having our dinner, two different supervisors came by the table to make sure that our dinner was" as ordered "and seemed to really care if we liked the food. We will be back..I like management that keeps an eye on the food and service. The service at this restaurant is excellent...friendly, and prompt when you ask for something. They don't hover around you making you feel like you have to hurry, but are very attentive. This is also a great place to take children of all ages.
