We are from Houston and judge Mexican food by the high quality TexMex we're used to. This place isn't in the same League. Tried beef fajitas and was disappointed. The beef was chewy and full of fat. The plate was mostly red peppers. The guacamole was served in a tiny plastic container and had very little taste. The pico was... More

We were in Incline Village and hungry. I put a search in my navi system for close restaurants and Lupita's came up. We drove there and found the restaurant in a small strip mall. WOW what a find. We have been in Tahoe for a week and this was our 3rd Mexican restaurant and by far the best. The food... More

I was here today with my husband and my baby. I come here A LOT! I love the food and the restaurant but tonight was really terrible. Our waitress absolutely sucked. Tonight was a semi-busy night and I know what the restaurant industry is like since I've been a waitress myself for many years. Two officers came 10 minutes after... More

Was taking a tour around Lake Tahoe, and got hungry somewhere around Incline Village. We just happened upon Lupitas, and are glad we did! The chips and salsa were excellent - always a good start at a Mexican restaurant. I had the Chile Relleno and my wife had the taco/quesadilla special. We enjoyed both very much. The only regret is...

We stopped here for dinner after just driving around looking for a Mexican restaurant in Incline Village. Barely saw this place in a tucked away building. Walking thru the front door, there is seating on the left & right. The right side looked brighter and we picked that side. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the right side has hard wood bench... More

I have lived in Mexico and I must say that many Mexican restaurants that cater to Gringos seem to miss something in translation. That is not the case here at Lupitas. The food is very good and authentic and the service is very good too.

It was the best Mexican I've had in a long time . Will go back probably tomorrow. Service was fast and the staff were really happy working there.

This is a great place to have an authentic, sit-down Spanish meal. Their salsa is spicy, their beef fajitas are the best and they serve horchata!

The quantities were big, nice specials, authentic mexican cuisine - the waitstaff was very nice and helpful. I thought the food was average/good - not exceptional but what I think makes this place great is you get a lot of food for your $$. It took a little while to get our food, but the place was very busy. If... More
