Lupie's Cafe Restaurant Review: Lupie's offers special dishes each day of the week, in addition to a menu full of popular “home-cooked” fare. Chili fans will like the super-hot Texas chili, best savored chili mac-style, over spaghetti noodles (to temper the heat). Cincinnati-style chili with a blend of sweet and hot spices is a big hit, and so is the vegetarian chili. Vegetable plates come piled with mac 'n' cheese, green beans, pinto beans and other seasonal favorites partnered with a hunk of cornbread. Nachos, wings and quiches can be ordered as “munchies.” A Mason jar of Southern-style sweet iced tea or a cold beer are the quaffs of choice. House wines are also available by the glass. Dessert options are brownies, banana pudding, chocolate éclair pie or peach kuchen, simple but satisfying. Also located in Huntersville, about 12 miles north of downtown Charlotte, at 101 Statesville Rd., 704-948-3959.
