I chose this place because of the reviews. It was very crowded and very loud with the amount of large groups. But they sat me promptly and were very attentive to me and my party of one. I did not get the Fajitas but maybe next time. I enjoyed a combination of dishes and was most delighted with the re-fried beans. Yeah, beans. If you ever made or have ever appreciated the Louisiana Red Beans and rice dish then you will enjoy the fresh daily bean appetizer and re-fried beans. It is the little extra attention to detail and all customers that qualifies them to the excellent rating. Happy to give it to them.

The foods really good, prices are good... But the happy hour really draws me to it. Cheap margaritas made WITHOUT sweet and sour with actual lime juice!

The selection of food at this place is great. Dishes range in tastes for the meat lover to the vegitarian. Service was quick even for the high volume of business at the time I went. The portions where also expansive. I will say that the prices where somewhat inflated, but the qulality of the experience was worth it.

The food was absolutely GREAT and lots of it!!! Had something I'd never had before. It was a pinto bean salsa?? The beans were whole with green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and some other spice I haven't figured out yet, but it was awesome.

This is definitely "Tex Mex" style vs authentic Mexican, but it is very good as far as chains go:
Here's what is different here vs. a typical chain:
-- The salsa tastes like it was made fresh in the kitchen. It's got some kick, but doesn't taste like it came out of a can.
-- In addition to tomato salsa, they give you a bean "salsa" as well -- which is essentially pintos with pork and some cilantro -- very good.
-- Fajitas are REALLY good and are worth coming for. You get a generous portion of meat and it doesn't look or taste that it was pre-cooked somewhere else, frozen and then warmed up in the restaurant. The lime/pepper marinade is extremely flavorful -- definitely get the fajitas. In addition, they bring you as much of the accompanying sides (sour cream, guac, cheese, pico) as you'd like,so you don't need to scrimp on the toppings you like. Finally, the flour tortillas are amazing -- larger than life, thin and very tasty -- LOVE THEM!
-- Kids meals are very reasonable - only $4.95 includes drink and ice cream dessert. Meals are mostly just smaller versions of what is on menu -- two thumbs up from our girls.
The service was also very good -- our waiter was extremely attentive to our needs and quickly answered our questions in a pleasant manner.
MY ONLY COMPLAINT ABOUT LUPE'S ARE THE RESTROOMS -- GROSS! They are dirty, smell and are in disrepair. Normally, this is not a good sign for a restaurant -- but the rest of the place is clean and looks well-run.
Definitely worth a visit -- especially if in the mood for fajitas.
