Been to Lupe tortilla a number of times now. It is a Tex-Mex menu but the ingredients and flavors are a big step up from the average place. We love the tortilla soup, usually get this when we are there for lunch. The lupe chicken and fajitas are excellent as well. They have a good bar area and outdoor seating.... More

So I have no complaints on the food. Every time I've visited I've been pleased with it. My issue is with the amount of time it takes to complete service once you're seated. Every single time I've spent almost 1 1/2 hours for dinner because the server never comes back. We wait and wait and wait. I know the place... More

Food and our server was ok but food took way too long... Not sure if they were short handed or what but they took way too long to bring our food and it wasn't that busy.

Lupe Tortilla's has always been a family and friend favorite. Their fun atmosphere and amazing food draws us back every time. Every dish I have tried has been amazing, and the drinks are very good as well. Good service as well.

Lupe Tortilla's is one of the better Mexican food restaurants in the area. Service and food taste is generally top notch. One of the items we like the most is their fajitas which have a unique flavor. However we have seen a decline in the quality of meat over the past year. It has more gristle and has become chewy....

This is always my favorite Mexican food restaurant - and it was as good as usual for this lunch. They have the blood orange margarita back, and it is great. Their beef fajitas are the best around. The weather was nice, so we enjoyed sitting out on the patio.

I have lived in Houston for 30 years now, and can say that overall, Lupe's is the best Tex Mex in town. Never had a bad meal ever at any location. Great nachos, great beef fajitas. But really everything on the menu is very good. The only drawback is that quality comes with a high price. You won't pay mexican... More
