Lupe’s Carry Out will close next month in Newton.
A sign on the door Tuesday read that the restaurant’s final day would be November 24.
“The end to a Newton tradition,” the sign read. “After 44 years it’s time to close our doors. Thank you to all our loyal customers that stayed with us over the years.”
The sign was signed by the Llamas family that owns the restaurant and staff. The restaurant, 1305 Washington Road, is owned by Mario and his wife Anita Llamas. It got its name from Mario’s mother Lupe, whose recipes are still in use there.
The restaurant is known for its Mexican fare, including best-sellers like the deluxe tostada, fried flour tacos and smothered burritos with pork chili.
It’s been a long-time popular lunch and carryout spot in Newton and the surrounding area.
Harvey County Now reached out to the restaurant and staff confirmed that this week they were notified this week the restaurant would be closing in the future.
Look for more information next week we’re able to speak with ownership about the long-time local eatery.
