We got to the restraunt at around 5:30. This was on a Tuesday night and we waited for about 1 and a half hours to get seated. Then, our guacamole was not ripe. We waited another hour for our food! The food was ok, but we ended up getting out at 9:00at night!

We have eaten in many TexMex restaurants across the city and by far Lupe's is one of the best; best by far north of loop 1604. Thin fresh and crispy tortilla chips with salsa, beans, and queso. And that is just for starters. Food is delicious and you cannot go wrong at Lupe's

This may be our new tex mex restaurant. We have another favorite, but the lines have gotten crazy. This is a suitable alternative. We shared two family platters -- beef fajitas and then a barbacoas with ribs. We got there during happy hour -- the margaritas were fine.

This restaurant is known for its exceptional fajitas, but its Mexican style ribs are as good as ribs get. The meet falls off the bone and the sauce is wonderful!

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We dined on a Saturday evening, and there was a wait of about 45 minutes. We were able to enjoy sitting on the patio near a very nice fire pit. Once seated we found our server to be very friendly and helpful. My son and I shared their veggie Fajitas. They were very good,... More

Our favorite place for fajitas. They marinate the fajitas perfectly. Drinks and service are great. Good selection of Mexican beers.

The outdoor patio was very inviting and comfortable. We were seated quickly after being told it would be an hour wait which was a pleasant surprise. However we waited over an hour after ordering for our food to be delivered. Then when one of the members of our party complained the manager gave them $25 off their bill and no... More

My family and I had a great dinner at Lupe Tortillas, our first time. Our guacamole, fajitas, queso flameado and enchiladas were excellent. Waiters and staff were nice and friendly, the apologized for one dish coming pretty late, and let us have it at no charge. Great way to make it up!

Places was clean. The service was fast and never ran out od anything. More than enough to eat. The flavor was one of the best fajitas I've had. No wonder they are world famous.
