Lupita's in Pasadena on Colorado Blvd. is a great find. It serves traditional Mexican food with a Seafood flair. I love their Enchilada Vallarta, which is huge and filled with succulent shrimp, also try their shrimp ceviche it is delicious. Other items like Tacos, Carne Asada Burritos and Carnitas are equally flavorful. Good chips and two excellent salsas, Enjoy with... More

This is our favorite place for Mexican food in Pasadena. The salsas are fresh and delicious, food is always fresh and well-prepared, and the service is warm and welcoming. Don't let the strip mall location along Colorado Blvd. deter you from trying this hidden gem. Large menu, options for vegetarians, great breakfast selection, fresh chips...the list goes on.

This small family restaurant surpasses all expectations of a strip mall location AND most larger Mexican food establishments. We find the food fresh and delicious every time, whether lunch, dinner, eat in, or take out. Should you need a party idea consider Lupitas "food cart" service. Always, the staff and owner welcome you.

Tried Lupita's for dinner. It is a nice little family run restaurant with great food. The chili relleno and enchiladas were excellent. my only complaint would be the parking lot is small and usually full.

Great food. Affordable. Small dining area. Small parking lot. Don't let my review scare you. It's worth the trip.

Went there after reading the other reviews. Was pleased. Good food, fast and friendly. Great relaxing Hispanic music playing to which the owner would occasionally sing along to. Definitely check it out. I had a very tasty burrito and a beer, both for under $12. And free chips and homemade salsa.
