Seven days a week, politicians, professional athletes, businessmen and women, and members of the working class descend upon a tiny spot on the corner of a strip mall on Highway 6 in Sugar Land. The ceiling is covered in colorful festive pinatas and the tables are reminiscent of a diner. The place isn’t swanky, and the line of people out the door on weekends aren’t there to be seen. They’re there to enjoy some of the best Tex-Mex around at one of the Houston Chronicle’s “Top 100” Restaurants in Houston.
Lupita’s Mexican Restaurant is the blood and sweat and tears of humble couple Jaime and Lupe Garcia. “Hardwork,” says Jaime. “I came to this country from Mexico. Lupe and I opened Lupita’s twelve years ago with little more than a desire to share great food with our wonderful neighbors.”
And the Garcias have been successful in their endeavor. Voted Best Tex-Mex in Sugar Land, day-in, day-out the Garcia’s supply their regulars with their superior homemade food. The seafood is fresh, the meats are choice. Fan favorites include fabulously marinated fajitas, stuffed avocados, green chicken enchiladas, chile rellenos, Mercy’s nachos with fajita beef or chicken, chicken flautas and mouthwatering desserts like sopapillas and flan. Want to bring the great taste to your home or party? Jaime says, “We’ll help you out with to-go orders or catering for a family event, corporate meeting, or your big party. You send the invitations, we’ll handle the fajitas…for fiestas of any size!” Now that’s Texa-licious!
And who doesn’t love to wash down their favorite Tex-Mex with their favorite margarita? The Garcia’s have you covered! Stop in Monday and Wednesday…house margaritas are just $2. Can’t beat that!
Every time you stop by Lupita’s, the Garcias will gladly welcome you with open arms and find their way into your heart through both their graciousness and fantastic food. Jaime, Lupe, and their sons Rigo and Leo say, “From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Fort Bend for everything. Your loyalty, support and friendship mean the world to us.”
