Probably the best meal we had while in the Keys. The price was right and they even stayed open past their normal closing time just for us. We will return next year.

Do not judge this place by the rather scruffy outside. Open the door and find a real family Mex restaurant. Food is very good with out much US twist. Prices are mid. Come here if you like mexican food in Key West

Went for late lunch after tourist watching on Duval street. Food was awesome! Salsa that came with chips was not to hot. Beers were icey cold. Service was the best! And unlike past posts language was definitely not a barrier. Will definitely be going back!!!

If you are looking for home-style cooking with an authentic taste, try Lupitas Mexican Restaurant. This is a small establishment, with a great menu, wonderful service, and a casual atmosphere.

Wife and I walked by a liquor store and a drunk to get to restaurant. We were shocked to see prices 3 times the price of great Mexican food in nc and they didn't even have shredded beef for a chimichanga. We left without even touching the chips so can't attest to quality, but if you want to spend $45... More

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.
