Ate here several times now. Service is always fast and friendly. The chips are amazing and the salsa too! I always get everything a la carte. Burritos, tostadas, chimichangas, enchiladas, hard, medium, and soft shelled tacos. Choose from carnitas, ground beef, pulled chicken or pork, steak. The taco salad is huge! Everything I've ever ordered here has been a hit.... More

Don't you dare miss out on the homemade chips. Crunchy, hot, and salty. Big fave is the Big Alejandro, wet, with tomatoes and lettuce on the inside. So delicious!

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 Btw, the photo on TA is outdated.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
