Taco Lucha

One of the best places to eat in Manhattan. Try the burritos if you're hungry. Nachos are also huge. Only negative is that it is a little loud if you eat inside. .. so eat outside.

We were in town for a baseball tournament and craving Mexican. Great guacamole, fresh and chunky. The fish tacos were very good and just the right amount. My husband had the special steak and shrimp wrap with bacon, guacamole, and ghost pepper cheese, also very good. Very friendly atmosphere and staff. You've got to try a Nancy, the best part... More

Taco Lucha is a small joint with some great dishes. A few of my favorite items are the chipotle raspberry and bean dip, black & blue taco and the slayer taco! There is a good vibe and a nice outdoor seating area, but there is ALWAYS a wait. And not much space for big groups.

Small restaurant near Kansas State campus. Food and service very good. Would go again (perhaps on next trip) and recommend to friends.

Small place in Aggieville USA (Manhattan KS) The food is terrific; the menu is small but what they do is amazing. I had a fish taco and a black and bleu taco that would be in my request for a last meal if I were granted one. Outstanding!

Tasty food in a fun environment. Small eatery with a small but delicious menu. Often a wait for a table but certainly worth the wait. Drink a "Nancy" while you wait!

Will you wait for a table? Probably. Will it be worth it? Definitely. Food is phenomenal and tequila selection is, if possible, even better. When it's taco night, or margarita night, or date night, or really just nighttime, this is where you want to be.

Food is great, even better if you like spicy food. It's relatively affordable, and has a nice ambiance as well. Been here once for a friend's birthday, told the waiters in order to get her a cake or something, I was told they don't do that type of stuff. Too bad.

This little taco spot normally has a long wait to get in...but if you have the time to wait I would recommend the trip in for original tacos in a fun environment.
