Has become a regular hangout. Great food and service. Low prices for anywhere not just Soho. Inside and sidewalk seating. Happy hour Margaritas $5. Cannot go wrong.

I've eaten at Lupe's many times. As someone who lived in Texas for 20 years and who has spent lots of time in Colorado and New Mexico, I am passionate about Mexican food. Lupe's is as good as it gets in NYC. The chile verde is really good, I love the enchiladas de mole (one of the best moles I've had), the huevos batidos are tasty, and there several other good things on the menu. Don't expect to be transported to Santa Fe when you eat here and you won't be disappointed.

Lupe's serves incredibly fresh Mexican food and always does so with a smile. They are always spot on and fast with delivery and in the restaurant. Always a great go-to if no one in your group of friends can decide where to eat!

Food is great, dirt cheap. The aguas frescas juices are always great. The atmosphere is not great, but it's not a buzzkill either. A definite downtown vibe and always has a nice buzz to it. But always delicious, always friendly, and I'm always glad I went there.

I have been eating at Lupe's regularly for years, and I love it! The staff is awesome, so friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and incredibly consistent, and the atmosphere is happy and fun. I've come alone and come with friends, always felt welcome. Oh...the Margaritas and Pineapple Mojitos are really good - everything fresh fruit!

Four of us ate here yesterday and loved it. We thought the starter salsa and chips were delicious--great, tasty salsa and nice, salty chips that were good on their own. Two of us had quesadillas, one had a burrito, and one had the stew and we all really liked everything we got--perhaps a little bland, but no other complaints! My friends all got margaritas and really liked them and we split a peanut butter cookie for dessert which was delicious. And the prices are very fair. Our server was in a bad mood but the service was great--we got everything quickly and we were checked on multiple times to see if we needed anything else. LOVE THIS PLACE--will definitely go back!

If you're going to Lupe's and only compare it to the Mexican food of the southwest, you're really wasting your time. Yeah, we New Yorkers get it - our Mexican food will never be as "authentic" as yours. If you feel so strongly about this fact, then when you visit the city, avoid it (just like we avoid pizza or bagels when visiting your region). I also agree that thetortilla chips are a major and tasteless downer. However everything else I've had at Lupe's is delicious, flavorful and plentiful. The burritos are the best in my opinion, but my friends have sworn by the tacos de carnitas. Definitely get a margarita and if you're looking for something sweet, the plantains are very yummy. I have never waited more than 20 minutes for my food after ordering - even when the restaurant is at it's most crowded. My biggest peeve is the cash-only policy, but I love everything else about Lupe's!
