Cochinita pibil (slow roasted pork in achiote sauce) from Yucatán (with Mayan ancestry), chile relleno (stuffed poblano pepper) from Puebla, pescadillas (fish tacos) and ceviche from Acapulco, molotitos (plantain croquettes) from Chiapas, carne asada (called Tampiquena) from Tamaulipas or the pescado a la Veracruzana (fish from Veracruz) are all some an examples of the cuisine that La Lupita brings to the table.

In addition to a wide variety of traditional Mexican food, La Lupita is a tequila lover’s paradise. La Lupita Mexican Cuisine & Bar has it all from blanco, reposado or añejo tequilas. Mezcales, sotoles and extra añejo tequilas are also available.

Upon arrival, visitors will immediately notice La Lupita’s uniquely Mexican flair. Step into the lobby from Waterway Avenue next to the Waterway Avenue Bridge and descend the handcrafted spiral staircase or ride the elevator downstairs to enter the main restaurant. Decorated with vibrant artwork, La Lupita’s atmosphere is a true representation of the country’s culture. Religious icons, Mexican tile and fine woodwork details are just some of the décor’s native touches.
