Simply put - you cannot find better fajitas and margaritas in Houston. End of review. :) This visit was with a girlfriend so we ventured away from fajitas and were just as impressed with the chicken Lupe, enchiladas, and the mahi mahi tacos. On a Monday night, it wasn't as crazy busy as usual, so seating was prompt. very nice.... More

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.

Food was good, service was ok, but it was one of our employees birthday so we took her to Lupe to surprise her, the table across from us had a birthday as well, we told our server that it was our employee birthday but nothing happen, the table across from us had all the employees around them with a cake...

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.
