La Lupita is one of our favorite restaurants in Knoxville, and we prefer the location in Lenoir City, mainly because we love the service there, but the market connected to it is (in our opinion) better than the one in Loudon or Maryville. The chips...More

Best compliment I can offer is La Lupita is where much of the local latino population goes for an authentic latino meal. The food is prepared to order and might take a bit longer to arrive than you expect. It's worth the wait. The beans...More

This restaurant delivers authentic Mexican food that is very good with very generous portions. Saturday crowd is very large with many Mexican workers dropping in for lunch. Be patient and you will get good food.

We had supper at Lupita one night recently. This is not your typical 'cover everything with sauce and add beans" type place. The menu was different and required some translating for us. And I mean "what is this? " . Spanish was not the problem...More

The enchiladas were spicy and bland at the same time, very impressive feat. They appeared to have two different types of "meat" in them. Ground beef on one side and shoe leather on the other. Fajitas were bland all the way around. The sides were...More
