Here’s what some customers had to say: “We were a group of four and the food was exceptionally good, authentic Mexican, staff friendly and attentive. Top Margaritas.”

“Having lived in Mexico for four years I’m so often disappointed by so-called Mexican food outside Mexico. I loved everything about the place. The food was excellent, but the Camarones al Diablo were absolutely incredible.”

“Amazing food, service and atmosphere. The tacos were best I’ve had in Leeds and the margaritas were irresistible”

“Friendly staff, excellent food. Nice and authentic Mexican with big flavours. Good use of spice. Star of the show cactus salad and sea bass. Could add a few more vegan options only criticism.”

“I had to stop eating Mexican food due to being gluten free and vegan not many Mexican places cater to that, luckily Lupes does and it’s very tasty. The staff are very friendly and it’s great value for money. I’ll definitely be back to try more of the menu.”

“Had a fantastic time at this venue, great value for money with a starter and main course and well worth the upgrade paying for unlimited cocktails!”

“Me and my 2 children loved our first visit. Brilliant customer service, amazing food and so good value for money. We can’t wait for our next visit”

Where: 116A Harrogate Road, Leeds LS7 4NY

Rating: 4.5/5

Here’s what some customers had to say: “Shocked how GOOD my veggie tacos were. The sweet potato and yam and cauliflower tacos on true corn tortillas, each with a delicious green mojo sauce. My husband also enjoyed his meat tacos. The cheesy aka dirty fries were sinfully good; my only caveat was the guacamole was just fine. I’ve had much better. The Margaritas were tasty and mixed well. Excellent service.”

“Lovely cute restaurant which serves lovely authentic and have lovely staff. We are not an easy crowd, the staff couldn’t have been more amazing and accommodating. My only wish is that I lived closer so I could order a take away”

“Love the food from here. I live about one minute from this place and can see how hard they work to keep things going. Thankfully, they diversified into takeaways during lockdown and continued to do so post lockdowns. I love burritos and these are so good (in my top 3), but you absolutely must order the meal deal with nachos which come with all the trimmings.”

“By far the best restaurant in Chapel Allerton. The food is amazing! My partner is coeliac and the gluten free choices on the menu are vast. Not eaten in for a while due to Covid but getting regular takeaways and have never been disappointed. The Mexican fries are a real treat as a side dish.”

“I ordered a takeaway this evening and it was great. I got the rice box meal deal with nachos. I’m a vegetarian coeliac and it was amazing to have so much choice!”
