Lupie's is a landmark, an institution. The eclectic atmosphere and amazing food has not changed since the first time I ate there over 25 years ago. It brings back memories of my childhood and unlike so many other things, the flavors have not changed and there is nothing missing. Perfect. You may not ever be able to go home again, but you can definitely go back to Lupie's. So do, now.
This place is a little gem in Charlotte. They have a great menu that has a great selection of hometown American food. They always have one special home cooked plate a day. Chicken and dumplings is my favorite. The staff is confident and friendly and genuine. You could spend an hour just walking around looking at old pictures, old bikes, things collected. Price is fantastic. And they're fast. The place is not fancy. It holds to it's true rudimentary diner type culture. You just have to go there. The outside is not pretty so don't drive right by. You'd be missing a great experience.
Ive only been here once, but I fully intend to come back. The chili was amazing. Hearty, warming, and full of flavor. The atmosphere is more on the eclectic side which I really enjoyed. Service was good. Reasonably priced. I sure hope that gentrification doesnt take Lupies away from us like it has many other CLT staples.

Nice place with eclectic decor. Staff are friendly and conversational. Place provides an intimate feel. Food, though offerings aren't elaborate, is very satisfying and tasty. The chili is very delicious. Been twice, and like to go for lunch when in the area.

Cracker Barrel was my favorite until I found this place I threw on the towel on that ordeal the minute I had a good home cooked meal at Lupie's. I live in Denver and don't mind traveling to Charlotte often to get the kind of service i receive. The amazing food is the lure and I'm hooked! Can you guys branch out...please...and open up a place in Denver. You'll get all my money if you do! Their mac & cheese is uhmazing! The banana pudding is very original and possibly rare. My Toddler loves their spaghetti the hubs would have me go get a tub or two of the banana pudding every time.
