Love the healthy options but that it still tastes amazing - you can get whole wheat tortilla, brown rice, option to grill fish tacos. Great with kids, good portion sizes and relatively affordable.

Bland food, Luke warm. Super burrito did not have guacamole and sour cream - they said it was inside and it wasn’t. Pre-mixed margarita in a big tank - unfriendly service

Extremely bad service and bad good, needed to argue to get a recomandation for beer, overlooked bad hygiene by the servers when they eat in the restaurant and not washing hands after licking their fingers. Also the server Asked me to write down my pin...code which is totally unacceptable. Would not recommend anyone to go thereMore

Food was great and the service was on their game. We relied on other reviews and were not disappointed. We would eat here again for sure!

Great food and great service for an affordable price! We got right in at 7 pm for a family of 7. The guacamole and salsa were the best I have ever had

Stopped by for late breakfast, it was very tasty. Service was quick and nice, albeit a bit distracted the one time we were there. The coffee was amazing. It is hard to find decent coffee in the US :-)

Don't get the reviews on this place at all. The food was average or less than average, the service was unfriendly and they use lemonade to make the margaritas.

If you’ve had even half way decent Mexican in Texas or California this place will feel like a joke. Below average and mediocre service. Enchiladas were bland and mediocre. No substance whatsoever. Don’t waste your time!

Not sure why the reviews are as good as they are. Not bad but very average, food atmosphere, and service. Genuine Mexican but not much more than that.

Lupe's was a great corner restaurant with good coffee, giant blondie cookies, and one of the best chicken mole enchiladas that I have had in ages. The price was perfect and the service was quick and friendly.
