The chips and salsa were delicious. The chips are freshly made and hot when they are delivered. They will cost you $3.50 per basket as they are not complimentary. The chicken was very moist and flavorful. The rice and and beans were standard but had a nice flavor as well. The total for one meal, chips, pop, and $4 tip... More

We started getting take-out from Lupe's. We have never sat down their to eat so I cannot speak to that. I can tell you that their food is excellent. The portions are large and delicious. I expect that some time (probably in the summer) we will actually have a sit down meal there. Until then, all I can say is... More

We eat there every Friday night and I never grow tired of it! I have tried different things but my favorite is the enchilada variety dinner. It's more than enough. The chips are homemade fresh as well as the salsa! And the staff....well they are just awesome too!

I eat here often. Their homemade chips are the best anywhere. Friendly service and great prices. Food is excellent. Btw, the photo on TA is outdated. They have moved from that site to an adjacent building.

It's been a while, but had to come back for my Menudo fix. Can't remember what my wife had, but she came away happy. I ordered the Menudo. It comes in a rather large bowl, with chopped onions and lemon to order, and a choice of corn or flour (3) tortillas. After our orders were placed, the owner/chef came out... More

I like Mexican food and found Lupe's by asking Siri (iPhone) to recommend a good Mexican restaurant. Lupe's is hands down the best Mexican restaurant and take-out in the area. (They offer non-Mexican meals for those in your party who wanted something else.) You'll notice when you walk in the door how clean the restaurant is. With little hesitation, you'll... More

The food was fair. moderately priced. They serve a stew beef in their enchiladas, burrito's and other things, instead of shredded beef, you can get ground beef instead. The guacamole is wonderful.

Well. Followed trip advisor and being reported #1 Mexican restaurant. NOT. Salsa was not the definition of "salsa" rather red SWEET tomato sauce. No heat. Can you say Stomach Acheson. Taco fell flat . Meat over steamed and Tortillas shells were typically pre-made. They did offer Mexican bottled coke which is the only thing I enjoyed. Keep on my search... More
