Not for Celiacs for sure!!!!!! Waiter first thought cups were made from "flour" so not gluten free (I'm like... They're corn tortilla chips right??!!), then came back and said never mind they are corn tortilla chips so gluten free! But are they Celiac safe? He did not know much about anything for gluten contamination..worth it
I talked to manager. He looked into it after he tried to give me a standard response. I guess he saw that I wanted a dinner. He was very polite afterward and made me feel comfortable. Ordered the fajitas with corn tortillas and mgr said chips were fried with breaded items. I did not get sick though.
This is not a total gf site but they do have gf items. The manager came out and made suggestions and I had the best portabella mushroom fajitas with corn tortillas!! Awesome service and food, great for intolerance and not worried about contamination.
They did NOT have gluten free menu at "this location", according to the manager and they said they could not really serve me anything gluten free as the kitchen was "completely contaminated with gluten". This was a first for me... at ANY restaurant. Needless to say, I did not eat.
We stopped in at this location late on a Sunday night because we saw that they had a gf menu. Apparently, this location is NOT gf. They do NOT have a gf menu, their manager kept saying over and over again that they couldn't guarantee anything. We asked if they could try to make our dinner gf and the manager just kept sticking to his line that they couldn't guarantee it. We walked out without eating there. The 2 star rating reflects our experience of not eating there. Wish it could have been better.
I love this place. Every server I've ever had has always been very knowledgable about gluten. I've never been sick eating here. Their chips are fried in a fryer with gluten, but they will bake chips for you. If you call ahead they'll be ready when you arrive. The food is amazing! So are the margaritas!
Need to bring your own chips. Their chips are prepared in a shared fryer with floured Items. It is not indicated anywhere on their menu about the chips NOT being gluten free.
Manager took us to our table explaining kitchen and cross contamination. They make their own corn tortillas. Have dedicated gf area in kitchen so it's not 100% safe. Had the signature chicken lupe and corn tortillas and they were delicious and i did not have issues after dinner. Server Steven was celiac and very helpful. Outdoor patio with fire pits look like they could be fun in the fall. Menu clearly marked. My vegan-dairy allergy guest did not have as much to choose from. Atmosphere is stereotypical mexican fiesta but areas were clean and well maintained. Restrooms were clean.
Place looks like a fun place to hang out- great patio-firepit setup - probably very fun when it's not 100 degrees out. Food was great. Server stephen was very familiar with gf diets. Manager took us to our table and explained the kitchen & gf choices. They make their own corn tortillas - Service was timely & dining areas were very clean. I ordered the signature chicken lupe and was very happy with taste and portion size.
Not the best Mexican restaurant I've experienced but they were pretty knowledgeable with keeping my meals GF. The margarita was delicious which made up for the dry & small portion of pork in my carnitas tacos. It was more like a lettuce taco topped with a few chunks of pork, not pulled pork like typical carnitas.
Our family of 11 visited your restaurant Sunday, August 24. We arrived about 1:15 and waited outside until after 2:00. We noticed several empty tables while we were waiting. It was extremely hot. We had out of town friends who had never been to Lupe Tortilla's. We noticed that the water and ice tea tasted strange (my daughter said it tasted like dirty water). We have always been pleased with the food and service but this day it was not acceptable. On top of that, our friend became quite ill before we got home. We think it could have been food poisoning. I think you should be aware of this experience and also that we will not be coming back to this particular restaurant again. I rarely write such a review of a restaurant but this time I thought it was necessary.
I got chicken and spinach enchiladas. That wasn't listed on the menu, but they were happy to accommodate me. There was a wheat sign beside the items that weren't gluten free. The chips are delicious. The sauce on my enchiladas (green and red sauce) was gluten free. I have never had enchiladas, gluten free, that delicious. The waiters were very helpful. I didn't eat the queso because I was told it was probably gluten free. All in all, it was a very positive experience!
Lupe is very gluten free friendly with a wheat symbol next to almost everything that contains wheat / gluten. Just watch out for the queso. There is no symbol but it definitely contains gluten. The staff knew that when I asked, but I went on the lack of the symbol only and paid the price.
Yum! I was so excited to find a Mexican restaurant that has a menu that has wheat free options marked! The menu doesn't specifically address gluten but I've chosen items that are said to be wheat free several times and have never gotten sick. There's also a rack at the front with vegetarian menu cards to take and they say all those items are gf.
WOW. Its the only way to describe it. I'm a 1st time customer and I'll be back. First time I've been to a resteraunt where everything on their menu IS gluten free, except the items marked with a wheat symbol. Make sure you tell the server that you are on a gluten free diet because they take it seriously, your food will be personally managed by a manager. Let them know you are a 1st time customer and they will give you a free sample of their fajitas. This was the BEST tasting Tex-Mex food I have eaten. It is very clean, inviting, friendly, and very well priced ($-$$). The only complaint is that it was very difficult to find. This resteraunt is a DEFINITE must. ;^)
We eat here so often thar the hosyess and manager know us by name! LOVE LOVE LOVE the food!!!
Large GF menu!
Awesome gluten free menu, so many options that they actually designate items WITH gluten instead of those without. A little pricey for Mexican but I've gotten glutened at almost every other Mexican place I've tried so it's worth it for a safe meal. Their corn tortillas are the best I've had and they will sub them for the flour ones with the fajitas if you ask.
It was alright but not great. Didn't get sick so that's good. Food just wasn't that greatly flavored.
my 8 year old has celiac. so its hard to enjoy dinners out with the family. but we know now what my son can't and can have and we love lupe tortilla he got to enjoy his favorite grill chicken quesadillas with homemade corn tortilla it was amazingly good . he loved it and the best part of all the cook and our waiter made sure they did everything to ensure our son didn't get cross contamination. they did everything correct my son didn't get sick .
The best fajitas ever! Just get the corn tortillas; they are homemade and so good!
Lupes is my absolute favorite!!! BEST GF Mexican menu I have ever seen! Easy to read and know whats safe and whats not! You will never be disappointed here! Corn tortilla are homemade and YUMMY beyond belief! Tableside quac is the best! You WILL be hooked forever!!! Thanks Lupe!!!
gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu, and it is all on the same menu, so no awkward moment when you want to order, and the food is excellent!
Heavenly beef fajitas!
