Drinks didn’t seem as good as past experience. They had very little alcohol compared to previous experiences. Appetizers were not the same as past experience but the tacos were still good. Also we asked for a table in the patio which they said was full but those tables were not filled until we were leaving.

They were out of one of the specials. Also they had a terrible problem with flies. I think it’s a bit overpriced.

Didn’t live up to the hype. Tacos were decent but my order came incorrect twice. Server did not explain sauces they put on table and even though they asked for my allergies they still served me dairy. We had tacos the night before at Don Sanchez - Unbelievable flavor, every bite packed a punch. So maybe should have gone here 1st.

Probably the best tacos I have ever had. So many choices of ingredients it was hard to decide. Had one where the shell was baked cheese; amazing!
The regional cheese appetizer with chorizo was also fantastic. It comes with 5 soft shells and could probably be enough for a meal for one person

If you don’t love La Lupita, don’t come to Cabo. Such great food and service. Love the vibe and the staff. Make a reservation and if you don’t get it, go for lunch.

We've eaten here many times over the past few years. Food is always excellent, and the wait and serving staff are friendly and accommodating. They appreciate our attempts at Espanol, and their English is very good.
Live music, excellent food, and mezcal and tequila to meet anyone's taste.
Highly recommend and will go there again soon.
Gracias!
P.S. try the grasshoppers, they're spicy and delicious!

Always delivers. Gourmet tacos at it’s best! Every single taco has it’s own flavor profile. The brisket and scallops tacos are to die for but really, they are all good, all of them. Drinks can quickly double or triple your total check though.

The best tacos in San Jose and Cabo - so many different ones to choose from and they were all great. Try the Mezcal flights - this place has a significant Mezcal list.

Our waiter was great. Helpful, informative, attentive and fun. We can’t wait to come back.

La Lupita is a fun place to get tacos and drinks while hearing live music. Try to get an outside table if you're there for the music - we usually do but this time we were just inside. It's a different experience but still a lot of fun. Try the shrimp tacos!!

Our favorite spot when in San Jose! Food is 5 stars and service is top notch. Let me tell you about the music, oh the live music, I am always truly impressed with every band I have seen there. I don’t know how they find all this talent.

It was perfect. It never disappoints, food is always great and service excellent! We tried the baja oysters for the first time and we are so glad we did!!!! They were exquisite, and so were the tacos dorados. Pastor tacos were delicious as usual, and I also ordered the takeshi which is a rib eye taco with hoisin sauce in a flour tortilla, and I also had a lobster taco, it was 👌🏻👍🏻
There’s never been anything I’ve tried that I don’t like!

La comida está deliciosa.
Sin embargo olvidaron que estábamos celebrando cumpleaños, hasta que se le mencionó al mesero.
Una de las hostess no tuvo la mejor atención para algunos invitados de la mesa.
Nos sentimos muy apresurados, aunque conocemos la hora del cierre, sugiero que no sean tan notorios.
Es la 3ra vez que visito La Lupita
