The best fajita meat…
[wait for it...]
EVER, EVER, EVER!
Think skirt steak marinated in fresh lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper…
The enzymes in the lime juice break down the meat and make it heavenly-tender.
I got my taste of beef fajita from the beef fajita taco salad I ordered today.
Finely-grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole, finely-diced tomatoes, chilled iceberg lettuce, tossed in a light-tasting lime-jalapeno dressing (amazing flavor, and not harsh or spicy), garnished with thin tortilla chips covered in [what else?] cheese!
I’ll say it again…
And, from how Jake and Chris were raving about Harrison’s chicken quesadilla – I’d guess that was preeeeeeety gooood too!
Where in the world do all these great restaurants come from?
Lupe Tortilla, founded by Stan and Audrey Holt, got its start in 1982 in [where else?] Texas.
Texas. Have I mentioned lately that I love this place? ;)
From its meager beginnings (www.lupetortilla.com), the owners knew they had something great going on…
Not to mention, that they have a huge sandbox, equipped with buckets and shovels, for the kiddos to play in (while you wait for a table).
Lupe Tortilla expanded, again and again…
My favorite part of their story is from 1992 when they say, “Stan and Audrey stayed focused on what made them successful – fresh food with a casual family-friendly environment lots of smiles in a home like atmosphere.”
Lots of Smiles.
Yep. You know I fell in love with this place. :D
Their menu was fun – lots of “Es Preeeeetty Gooood!” after the dish descriptions.
The interior was quirky and eclectic, Mexican style.
And, boy, was that restaurant packed! You can tell they’ve got a good thing going.
It surely “es preeeeeeetty gooood!”
And I hear they make a mean margarita…
Oh, yeah. I could get used to this place. :)
So, if you’re ever in the area… They’ve got Lupe Tortilla restaurants all over the greater Houston area.
Stop in, and you’ll be saying, “Es preeeeeeetty gooood!”
With a great, big Smile. :)
Now, where’s my margarita???
