We have been visiting Houston for the last few years. We stay in the same location so we have passed Lupe's on the Southeast Freeway a number of times. We were on the way to the airport and finally decided to eat a late lunch at Lupe's and so glad we did. Although it did not start out well by... More

This was the best Mexican food I've had since living in Texas. The salsa and chips are great. I had the steak fajitas and they were wonderful. My family loved the food. Service was mediocre, nothing spectacular. The dinner went smoothly and all was well, until after we left. My husband said there was a humongous cockroach on the wall... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. Our four year old enjoyed the sand pit/pile, and the food was excellent. I loved the gluten free corn tortillas!!

Good jalapeño chicken - I was told the red & green jalapeños were hot, and they were great. Some torque but not too hot to eat. The cheese was a perfect combination. Great guacamole

I was very surprised at having a 30 minute wait for a table at 9PM but the atmosphere was very upbeat & made it worth the wait. I started with a mango-rita that was excellent! We had the tableside guacamole that was delicious along with the very light crunchy chips. We decided to split to chicken soft tacos & carnita... More

We went to meet friends for lunch at 1:30pm not knowing that they close at 2pm. It just seemed we had to hurry. They do have a lunch menu where most of the prices are approx $8.95. Margaritas are good. House margaritas are $7.95. They have outside eating area where it is open seating. They do have a small play... More

Worth the wait for a great Mexican meal. This restaurant was right beside our hotel and came highly recommended. Excellent service and menu choices make this a great choice. We did have to wait 30 minutes however. But it was worth it.
