Chapultepec Lupita

Any place with more than 60 different tequilas and nearly 20 different margaritas is bound to be happening. Located in a funky old house that seems to go on forever in the middle of Montrose, this colorful place has become an institution for the late-night/early-morning crowd looking for a hangover cure. They serve inexpensive Tex-Mex standards that start with chilaquiles and huevos rancheros and then progress to quesadillas, tamales, enchiladas and an excellent mole. The menu also surprises with dishes like tortilla-crusted snapper, Mediterranean-style salmon, alambres (kebabs) and sticky pecan cheesecake.
