The food descriptions get you eager to dig in but the execution did not provide flavors as promised. I did really like the Lucha Libre theme and decor of the place. The location in Aggieville was good as well. There is a small indoor bar and seating area with an outdoor patio along North 12th Street. The kitchen also serves... More

Good but that's about it. Expensive. Very expensive. Took a while to get food, was ok. Not spectacular like I expected.

Comfortable enough for kids but the atmosphere and food exceed for the adults. Daughter and her husband eat here often and occasionally get to share the experience. El Nino and Buffalo tacos are great items. Bean dip is great.

I was really disappointed in my experience at Taco Lucha. I dined here about 2 years ago and thought it was great and looked forward to coming back. The tacos were ok, the service was ok, there was a 30 minute wait for a table. What bothered me was a lot of ice in my drink, and you have to... More

When the weather's nice, I always enjoy coming here to eat on the patio. The servers are friendly, the food is delicious and affordable (raspberry chipotle bean dip!), and the drinks are perfect for a hot night.

This little gem is tucked in behind So Long Saloon. Sometimes there can be a 20 minute wait if it's during the college school year. Summer is the best time to go with fewer people in town. Spring & fall on the back patio with the propane warmers is perfect! The food is not your run-of-the-mill taco so don't expect... More

My daughter, my grandson who is in the Army and I dined here on Halloween. The tacos are delicious and we ordered a pitcher of regular margueritas which was very good, but I thought a little high on the price. Good atmosphere, we watched the KC Royals/Mets game. We were seated in a booth right by the outdoor patio and... More

Family of three dined here this evening. I was worried about being cold on the patio but the heat lamps made it very warm. We had the queso fundido and chips and mild salsa for appetizer – really great tasting salsa and we LOVED the fundido. We had the cheese steak burrito, roasted pork burrito, and a fish taco and...

This is a small restaurant, but the staff and food are awesome. Expect to wait a while during peak times (again, it's a small place!).
