LOPEZ strives to use the best local available ingredients, the finest imports, hand picked produce, meats and seafood,

and intense creativity when creating menu items.


Our culinary team comes together to create fun,

bold and vibrant dishes defining the LOPEZ TASTE.


Plenty of spice and heat, plenty of freshness and fun,

and plenty of choices for every diner.


LOPEZ can also accomodate all dietary restrictions from gluten free

and vegan dining to the stuff you make up on your own...just kidding.


We are available for private dining, have a community table,

delivery and take-out
