We visited Lupitas with great anticipation. The restaurant was not very busy. The margaritas were fine but pricey enough. The food was more expensive than I am use during to in Mexican restaurants, but hey, Key West. The food was fine but not outstanding. If you wanted more chips, you had to pay for them. Cilantro in a salad but... More

Your spanish will come in handy here. This is genuine mexican food. Not a fancy place, but cold beer; good food; off the beaten path. More locals than tourist in here.

The chimichangas are delicious and my favorite. I can never eat it all in one sitting so I always get a to-go box. The staff are very friendly and great indoor cozy atmosphere, as the outside you wouldn't expect. I've eaten there about 4 times and will always be a returning happy customer.

Had lunch at Lupitas, it was okay and feel there has got to better Mexican food in the Keys. Perhaps dinner would have been the better option! Wouldn't visit this place again, would rather spend my money at Hogfish Bar and Grill or The Waterfront Brewery!

This place has the most amazing Mahi tacos. They are so tasty and just perfect. I am Mexican and I'm telling you these are authentic. I drive to Key West from Miami just for these.
