Stopped here on a drive down to San Diego. Enjoyed everything we ate. Guacamole was delicious. Really loved the tacos and service was pretty fast. Small location so restaurant was packed and seating was limited. Overall though it was a very good meal.

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

First time here and wanted to try it all. Our group ordered 5 different kinds of tacos. All good! Bought there guacamole and it was fresh and tasty-you want to smother it on everything. Tried about 3 different salsas as well. Definitely going back.

When I saw this place being built out, I thought just another taco place how will they be able to compete with Chronic. Well Lupe's did it and won over the local crowds and then some. Lupe's has an amazing Al Pastor and fresh made...More
