State College isn’t exactly known for being a Mexican food hub. But, Lupitas is a lesser-known authentic Mexican restaurant that is dangerously delicious.
Lupita’s can be easy to miss. It’s a small yet colorful storefront tucked in the corner of the Unimart off of West College Ave. and Whitehall Road, but it’s not the restaurant you want to be missing out on.
Lupita’s has been serving up authentic Mexican food in Happy Valley since 2019 thanks to owners Maria Guadalupe Rojas Orozco and Emilio Lopez Ramirez. It offers tacos with homemade corn tortillas, tostadas, tamales, quesadillas, and much, much more.
