Lupita’s Authentic Mexican Food opens its new State College location at 11 a.m. on April 9, according to owner Emilio Lopez.
The third of its local locations, the newest Lupita’s, will be located at 312 West Beaver Avenue, according to a Facebook post from the company.
Lopez, who owns the restaurant with his wife Maria Rojas, said the idea of opening the place started before the coronavirus pandemic and when the pandemic started he and his wife decided to “wait for it”.
Lopez said the new location will start with Lupita’s menu already in place in her other locations, but will expand over time, becoming the “most comprehensive” menu.
“[State College locals] need to taste some real authentic Mexican food,” Lopez said.
Hours of operation for the new location are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
According to Lopez, Lupita is currently recruiting for many positions.
Lopez thanked the community and said their support is “most important.”
“This wouldn’t happen without their support…and the support of the students.
