We've been to Lupe's a few times and have just never been blown away by the food, or the service. After so many years in the business, it seemed as though they were resting on their laurels. The timing for their closing just seems appropriate at this time.

Lupe's is an old established Mexican restaurant that has withstood the test of time as other Mexican restaurants have come and gone. They serve good quality food at reasonable prices that are affordable for family and friends.

This place has been around forever so it must be good right? Boy was I wrong. Nothing special or unique about this food at all. I could not believe how bland this food was.

Oh Lupe's how I have missed you! I moved to ATL 4 years ago and can't find good Mexican food. Returned to T.O. to visit and went to Lupe's twice- it's that good! Just such good food. LOVE the tacos! Taco Monday, gets crowded- go early.
