We love Lopez. It is family owned and the owner is frequently making rounds to ensure everyone is happy. The food is tasty and the service is great.

I live in NYC but am originally from Houston - I make a point of going to Lopez Mexican Restaurant every time I make it back home. Great chile con queso (extra jalapeños, please!) and lots of iced tea. The only thing I would suggest is that you be careful about over-ordering, since the portions are quite large. I always...

We have been going to Lopez's for 25 years when it was a tiny hole in the wall across the road. When they built this new restaurant several years ago we were afraid that the food and cost would suffer, but no sirs! You get fast service and the servers are very attentive. This is great Mexican food that will... More

We ordered fajitas (beef & chicken) to go. Oh, so delicious! Staff was very friendly. We love this restaurant because it's close to our house. We'll definitely be back.

We have been frequenting this place for a few years now. The food is consistently great. Just that: great! Fajitas are reliably tender and "delish" and enchiladas are smooth, flavorful, and never taste like "salt poison" (more on that in later review of nearby restaurants). The food at Lopez comes out quickly and the servers are very attentive. Also, I... More

Stopped by for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Started with the Chile Con Queso that was one of the best I have had since my days eating at the now closed Felix Mexican in Houston and in Beaumont. The Carnitas were outstanding. I will be back!

I have been eating at Lopez for many years. It had been a while since the last trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and the service was great. We called ahead as we had a party of 10 plus 2 infants. They were all ready for us when we arrived. We were shocked at the low costs as they haven't... More

Great ambiance. We went on a Saturday, yes we did wait 40 minutes to be seated but it was worth the wait. Our food was delicious. We had margaritas and those were on point !!! Our waiter was friendly and cheerful and took care of us. Definitely coming back.

If you like spicy Mexican food, visit will support my words, Please visit - you would not regret. Good and assistance from servers and waiters. Price is acceptable. Nice place with parking. you may have to bear waiting and they do not open on Sunday.
