“Very good Tex-Mex!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Another solid and consistent place in Houston for Tex-Mex is Lupe Tortilla's. Most of the dishes appear to be beef or chicken. Lots of good drinks available too.

Can be loud at times, but good for families.

“Not like the Lupe Tex Mex Chain”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

The Lupe Tortilla in Katy is not like the chain Lupe's elsewhere around H-town. The menu is completely different as is the environment. The Katy location offers more options and takes more time to hand prepare all dishes, rather than just heat them up when ordered. There is even a sign at the front that informs guests that it is not a quickie food place.

Try it - you will love it! The enchiladas are authentic, the tortillas fresh and all the fajitas are good. They serve a charro bean dip that is to die for. My personal favorite is the fish tacos, but I have never had a meal that wasn't excellent.

“Best Tex-Mex in Houston/Katy”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Lupe Tortilla's is our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant and we always try to eat there when we come to the Houston area. This was our first visit to the Grand Parkway location. It didn't disappoint. We had carne asada and a beef fajita wrap. Both were great. The meat was very tender. They use lime in their marinade, which we really like. Homemade tortillas. Great salsa. Other favorites of ours are the stuffed poblano chicken, shrimp lupe, and the guacamole.

“Good Mexican food in Katy, TX”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Lupe's provides very good Mexican food at reasonable prices. The only drawback is that there's typically a somewhat lengthy wait for a table. But that's simply a reflection of the popularity of the restaurant and it's food.

“Very average at best.”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This place is so average that it is hard to put a decently written review together.

I have eaten here a couple of times since it is close to my home. The food is ok. Just that...ok. The prices are quite high for the quality and quantity of food that you receive so each time I have been there I have left feeling a little ripped off. guess growing up in South Texas I have a different idea of what Tex-Mex should be,

The service is, well once again, ok. It's not bad but not remarkable either.

They do have a play area for the kids but it is a sandpit. I mean literally a sandbox with playscapes in it so be prepared to take much of it home with you.
