We eat her once a month, the interior of the restaurant is not fancy and intimate, don't base your impression off of appearances. If you arrive around 6 on a Friday or Saturday you will have a wait however it is worth your while. We like the Margarita's, they have a variety of mixes and sizes. If you get the... More

My wife and I are very fair minded and generous people. That said, we were very disappointed in the food from Mi Lupita. The Margarita was very watered down. I ordered a chicken chimi that had two very small pieces of chicken and was 99% dry refried beans. The rice and beans was a spoon full portion. My wife's taco... More

Ate lunch here with the girls. We all enjoyed our meal. The chips and salsa are good and the chicken chimi was delish. Good service too. We will be back.

Really good food. Honestly the best mexican food for miles. Service in store is almost always slow. People are nice, but sloooooow. Drinks are good and specials are good too. If the service was better this place would easily be a 5.

We've lived near Mi Lupita for a few years and on a whim decided to try it out. Turns out we've been missing out on a hidden gem. The food was absolutely delicious and came out hot, and our waitress was very friendly and refilled drinks and chips before we even had to ask. We'll definitely be back.

The food is fresh and tasty, the atmosphere cozy, the service fast and friendly, the margaritas are KILLER! We've lived in Ballwin for over 30 years and just started coming to this place this year. It's a small place, and always crowded for dinner, but never had to wait more than 20 minutes or so. Well worth the wait!
