This is one of the two places in town that have authentic Mexican food. The prices are good and I have never had a bad meal here. They serve margaritas, beer and have a salsa bar. The people are very friendly.

Hot sauce for the chips, so be careful. Food was okay at best. Waitress didn't even ask if our dish was okay, finally came back and dumped a check, but didn't say you pay at the counter, so we waited a while and finally went up to ask.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is amazing and you can have your choice of authentic Mexican food or Tex Mex Mexican food. Both are very good here. The service is fantastic from the waitresses to the chefs in the kitchen. If you are in Cedar City Utah you should make this your choice in dining. The ambiance... More

Who knew I'd have to travel to Utah to get the best Mexican food I've had in a long time. My husband & I were traveling through and ordered take-out and brought it back to the hotel we were staying. It was such a nice surprise to have such authentic excellent Mexican food with such reasonable prices!!

Lunch here is always very good. Menu is extensive, and I have never had a meal that was not really good.

This is a very nice restaurant with delicious, authentic Mexican food. It is a small restaurant located in a strip mall. The dining room is not fancy, but it is clean and inviting. Service is friendly and prompt. The prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of foods they serve. Don't be concerned with the non-descript exterior. This is... More

Cedar City has lots and lots of Mexican restaurants… Lupitas is clearly my favorite of the authentic Mexican variety. Love the shrimp enchiladas.

We asked the front desk at our hotel where to go and they suggested this restaurant. The food was really good - they also had a salsa bar which really added to the meal. The service was good and the staff all friendly.

Greasy, sloppy and marginal quality food. Service was extremely poor, they appear to be tight on getting chips to you while you wait a VERY long time to get mediocre food. Not thrilled with getting ranch dressing in a Kraft bottle that had an expiration date 6 months old and then when you complain to their staff they lie to... More

I was given the recommendation by a co-worker to have dinner here. I have to admit it wasn't to bad! The tortilla chips and salsa bar are all made fresh. The portion of food I received was huge and tasted very good. The service was excellent and the price was very inexpensive. I will be back when I pass through... More
