This Unassuming Tennessee Eatery Has Some Of The Best Mexican Food In The State
Have you ever visited La Lupita Restaurante Mexicano in Lenoir City, Tennessee? Located not too far from Knoxville, this small Mexican food chain has been blowing a few minds down here in the south. They owe it to their well-concentrated menu, phenomenal, family-oriented service and fabulous fare.
Take a look!
La Lupita is located in Lenoir City, Loudon and Maryville, and has managed to wiggle its way into the the heart of southern born and bred Knoxville. The original location has expanded into multiple retail spaces in Lenoir City.
After all, it's not just a restaurant. La Lupita also boasts a grocery, which makes for an all-inclusive eating and shopping experience. You won't be coming for the ambience, but you'll be returning for the authentic meal.
Is the menu expansive? Well, no. But it runs deep and wide on the tasting scope. Their fajitas are lovely, well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. Try a gordita or their in-house steak stew, perhaps a platter meal that's served alongside beans and rice.
We recommend their carnitas, if you're a fan. Easy on the eyes and the stomach, you can choose from meats like chicken, pork, tongue, tripe and steak. Whoa!
And what authentic Mexican meal is complete without horchata? Yum! This tiny chain is definitely on our list, and you can visit their original location at 510 W. Broadway in Lenoir City. Visit from nine in the morning until nine at night, every day of the week.
