We stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Service and food were good, it is clean and well laid out, they offer a full bar and a dessert case, and it's convenient to major traffic ways and medical centers. It has made my number one go to restaurant in this part of the metro.

I was looking forward to Mexican food in Denver (we are from Boston) and based on these reviews, 4 of us tried Lupita's. It was mediocre at best. First thing we saw as we were walking in was a homeless(?) person going to the bathroom right in front of the entrance--he was behind a bush, but in front of the... More

We stopped for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised by fabulous live music. What a treat! The food was delicious and the chips and salsa are totally worth the calories. Dig in!

We eat here often because it is next to the Colo University Hospital at the Anschutz Center. The food is always good. I am writing mainly to correct an earlier post by someone else. They do not serve lobster. They serve crab legs at night on their dinner menu. Who ever wrote that earlier was completely misinformed and does not... More

My wife's family brought us to Lupita's as we were from out of town and wanted to eat at a non-chain Mexican restaurant. We had 6 adults and 2 children in our group. We were greeted warmly by the staff. You can tell the family takes pride in their restaurant. The menu has all of your traditional Mexican dishes and... More

We have been visiting Lupita's for several years, whenever we go outside and visit relatives in Denver this is the place we usually end up with my mother-in-law. Great family atmosphere and the owner "Betty" always recognizes my mother-in-law and ensures our table has plenty of attention from the servers. On weekends they sometimes have a band a country band... More

So my husband and I had been to Lupita's a couple of times and thought it was pretty good for what we ordered in the past. So we decided to actually dine in this time instead of ordering out. HUGE MISTAKE! We did not see a list of fountain drinks on the menu nor their prices. I was told that... More

Just because we love their corned beef and cabbage for 3/15, doesn't mean you shouldn't try their many first class Mexican dishes. Lupita's never disappoints. Old style, family booth presentation with live music many nights.
