Cedar City has lots and lots of Mexican restaurants… Lupitas is clearly my favorite of the authentic Mexican variety. Love the shrimp enchiladas.

We asked the front desk at our hotel where to go and they suggested this restaurant. The food was really good - they also had a salsa bar which really added to the meal. The service was good and the staff all friendly.

Greasy, sloppy and marginal quality food. Service was extremely poor, they appear to be tight on getting chips to you while you wait a VERY long time to get mediocre food. Not thrilled with getting ranch dressing in a Kraft bottle that had an expiration date 6 months old and then when you complain to their staff they lie to... More

I was given the recommendation by a co-worker to have dinner here. I have to admit it wasn't to bad! The tortilla chips and salsa bar are all made fresh. The portion of food I received was huge and tasted very good. The service was excellent and the price was very inexpensive. I will be back when I pass through... More

I wasn't expecting quality mexican food in Cedar City, to be honest. But 2 of my friends recommended it so we all went one night for dinner. While I wouldn't say it was the MOST amazing food, it was definitely delicious and worth the price. The atmosphere was very friendly and the wait staff were, as well.

The Mexican flag three enchilada combo was fantastic especially with the three sauces. The rice and re-fried beans were great compliments to the supper. Plus the welcoming free taco chips and salsa are a fine appetizer. This is becoming a favourite stop while in Cedar City!

A restaurant that's overfilled with Mexican crap for sale, in the entry, on the walls, ceilings and counters. I was waiting for the beach vendors to stop by the table and offer me us a 'blue light special' - that's a K-Mart is'm if your under 50. So the place is 1/3 full with 4 waitresses and you wait a...

We have been going to our local favorite, Chiquita's Mexican Restaurant (in San Diego, CA) for 30 years, so it is very difficult to compare a 'new' Mexican restaurant to them. However the four of us did enjoy our meals and even the eleven year old picky eater ate her entire quesadilla and some of her rice. (Rare, for her!)... More

We are afforded the opportunity to visit many good restaurants and this place is the bomb! The food is absolutely fantastic and the portions completely fill the plate. Our service from our waitress was impeccable. Prices are reasonable and the staff keeps the place clean. Enjoyed ourselves& would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys authentic Mexican food.
