Lupita’s Expanding To Second Location In Downtown State College

A State College Mexican restaurant will soon open a second restaurant downtown.

Lupita’s, which specializes in all things authentic Mexican food, plans to open a location at 312 W. Beaver Ave. in the former location of John’s Shanghai, a Chinese restaurant that closed earlier this year. On Facebook, Lupita’s said it’s aiming to open in early March.

“Today is a day that our hearts feel immensely happy,” Lupita’s wrote. “I want to thank all our customers for always supporting us. A thousand thanks to all the people who make all this possible.”

Although no opening date has been announced, Lupita’s Facebook post confirms the downtown location is “coming soon.” This new location will be Lupita’s third restaurant in Pennsylvania and second in State College.

While new to downtown, the eatery has been popular among State College locals for years. Tucked away in a Uni-Mart on W. College Ave., the hidden gem has been serving up homemade Mexican food since 2019. Check out our review of Lupita’s to get a taste of what it’s bringing to the borough.

The restaurant’s hours and full menu can be found on its Facebook page.
