Casa Lupe has been our family's fave place to eat for over 25 years. We've celebrated birthdays, held company Christmas & other functions there and even had our daughter's wedding rehersal dinner there. The food & service is always great. My favorite is enchilada suizas and their flan is perfect.

Lydia, Thank you so much for sharing! What type of flan do they serve? And which one is your favorite?

I've been meaning to go there. The parking lot is always busy when I drive by, which is a good sign!

What is it that Anthony Bourdain says? "Eat where the locals eat?" Let me know when you go, I'll join you.

People seem to love Casa Lupe--over thirty years in business speaks volumes!
