Great food & fast too – We love Lupes Escape and during the busy holiday season we really appreciate the great customer service and friendly atmosphere.
A little gem – Lupe's has never failed us. We were sent here several years ago by a friend who used to live in the area, and we've never walked away hungry. The portions are HUMONGOUS and very reasonable (you can usually get a killer chicken quesedilla platter with rice, beans, and a cocktail for under $12). No, it's definitely not the fanciest place, and the chips may be from a bag, but the service we've experienced has always been warm and friendly, and the food piping hot and incredibly satisfying. Maybe you can find more "authentic" Mexican food deeper in Hillsboro, or fancier, higher-end dining in downtown Portland; for Washington County's best Mexican bang for the buck, this is our choice hands down.
More like 'escape from Lupe's' – Awful food! More Americanized than most Mexican restaurants are. Food is not fresh and sauces definitely do not seem homemade. Also, whats up with a Mexican restaurant that serves cold, bagged, store-bought tortilla chips. Homemade, warm tortilla chips are most common at any Mexican restaurant. Lupe's were stale and tasted old. All around failure. This place sucks! Let it burn!
WOW THE BEST MEXCIAN FOOD EVER!!!!!!! – So I was looking for really great mexican food and my freind told me about Lupes Escape. My first time was two nights ago and I must say I was very surprised on how great the food was and the service ( I think its family owened ) I had The Torpedo burrito and wow my eyes were bigger than my stomach! This burrito was 10 inches and big enough for two people... The food came out fast and hot and to start off they gave me chips and salsa that was to die for!!! You can tell that everything was made fresh daily and that they took time to make my meal. I felt like I was on Vacation the food was that great!!! Anyways Lupes Escape you will be seeing me alot more and im telling all my friends and family.
Thanks for such a great meal and a friendly staff!!!
THE WORST! – My husband and I have been looking for a GOOD mexican restaurant in the Hillsboro area that we can frequent for a good meal and pleasant atmosphere. This place definately is NOT it! The food was incredibly bland. (I always thought Mexican food had some "kick" to it!?) The salsa was like pureed tomatoes with disgusting chips kept in a box in the corner! (Literally, not figuratively!) We read the reviews before we went but, like some of the others, I too have lived in Hillsboro for 45 years and have known Lupe's was a long-time restaurant in the area. How? I have no idea! The place was dirty, service was less than stellar.... I could go on about how disappointed we were but what's the point? The big chains like On The Border and Chevy's beat this all-over-the-place! Sad, sad statement...
Good Mexican Food, Tasty and Hot – My husband and I and our friends have been dining at Lupe's Escape for years. It is not fancy, but it is very good. The atmosphere is cheerful without being fake, and the staff is always welcoming.
I always order the special, and have yet to be disappointed. Their carnitas are the best! Easy access, right on TV highway.
Heading there now for a late dinner!
Quite possibly the worst Mexican Food I've ever eaten – Living in the Aloha area, My wife and I often pass Lupe's Escape on our way to and from home. We finally decided to try it, and called in for a pick-up. I requested some beef fajitas, but was informed they don't carry fajitas (yeah, pretty lame for a Mexican restaurant). The hostess informed me on the phone that they did have been dishes that were very similiar to fajitas. I took her advice and ordered one order of beef colorado, and pork carnitas. I was informed that the food would be ready in 25 minutes for pickup. I arrived to the restaurant to find a open kitchen that was riddled with dirt, 7 cooks working in a 5x5 area that wasn't up to health code (happen to know a little about that), and the two waitresses seemed as though they were doing you a favor by seating you. I found it funny that the register had a sign on it reading "please pay in cash, it helps us keep our costs low". For a business to be open for 20 years, to still request cash payment usually means one thing. They employ illegal immigrants and pay them in said cash, not having to provide insurance and benefits (hey, who said they didn't save on their costs).
Now, on to the food. Worst crap I've ever laid my eyes upon. The "carnitas" was simply a pork roast sliced and served over rice, and the beef "like fajitas" was braised pot roast cubes with sauce.
Each of our meals came with a side salad, my wifes in an individual container, mine served in the sides container covered in sourcream and guac by the time I got it home, along with the salsa. They served store bought tortilla chips, and didn't even take the time to heat them for their customers.
If you go to Lupe's Escape, expect to be disappointed.
Best Place for Mexican Food. – My husband and I have been going here for about a year now. Best house margaritas, and it doesn't matter what you order, everything is good.
In fact, I have never ordered. They always pick something new for me. My husband loves the Torpedo. Anything carnitas will knock your socks off.
We love this place. If you haven't tried it, you should!
great mexican food – I had dinner and had the chimichanga with beef and chicken and the beef and chicken were so tender they melted in your mouth, it was full of flavor and the service was excellent, my experience was great and I will surely return numerous times
