We had a party of 4 and arrived after work, close to opening time of 5pm. A line formed quickly. We had a great seat and a very attentive server. The sangria was perfect as we waited on our dishes. I had a combo enchilada platter, YUM!!! I would highly recommend Lupe's, and will definitely be back when in Houston.

I dream of their three pepper steak. We have moved from the area, but when we return, my first stop is Lupe's. Their skirt steak is so tender, I will never use flank steak at home again. Just had last week, and I have already searched the Internet for the recipe so I can recreate at home. By far my... More

This restaurant has some great Tex-Mex dishes. I highly recommend the Queso Flameado for an appetizer. Also their steak fajitas are great. Casual dining for sure.

We sort of ran into this place looking for something close to our hotel. Very fun atmosphere, great food, and service. The chicken enchiladas and tacos were our favorites. Also liked the salsa they bring with the chips, which is more of what you see in Mexico -- chopped tomatoes,onions, and cilantro. Sangria is muy Bueno too. Nestled in a... More

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go. Everyone from the staff is very nice and helpful. They have a large selection of food and drinks. The place is great and has an outdoor patio.

I visited the restaurant in november 2016. The service was friendly and attentive. The food and drink was great. I would recommend the seafood, especially shrimp with bacon. As I visited the restaurant alone I really enjoyed the friendly athmosphere of the place. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Mexican Food at an informal place.

I always meet my friends here for a great Mexican lunch. My favorite is the poblano chicken and love their beans and salsa that comes with the chips. My family loves to eat here as well but we have a drive to get to the nearest location. Give it a try😀😀😀

We've been here many times in the last two years and there are many delicious dishes. We love the chips and salsa, the beef fajitas, the Tortilla soup, the White Bean Chicken Chili soup, Tequila Chicken and the Fajita Nachos. Also India is the best waiter ever. Very attentive and orders always accurate. Enjoy!

We love going to Lupe tortillas about once a month. It's a great location for my family and we're able to sit outside often. There's a wonderful play area for kids that we enjoy watching even though we don't have any little ones. The staff is always nice and the food is decent. They have a pretty generous happy hour...
