We’d had Lupes at a friends house who had it catered for a party. We were impressed so we visited the restaurant today. The girl at the cash register could not have been more apathetic or unfriendly. She didn’t smile and barely spoke. When she...More

From the outside, Lupe's looks like a lot of other taco shops in strip malls, but venture in and you will be surprised and delighted. The menu had many offerings not found at most taco shops in SoCal, with a lot of seafood items among...More

What a feast and at a good price. Homemade corn and flour tortillas, lots of salsas, creative entrees. Eat here and you will skip your next meal.

First time there for breakfast I thought it was reasonably good. I probably won’t go there again for breakfast since I prefer to have coffee with my breakfast. Fresh ingredients and great black beans.
