Awesome burrito, I had the surfing California with the steak and prawns in. This totally changed my perception of the burrito. For a evening snack this was the best.

As I always state, reviews are subjective. I love food and appreciate great taste, that is what it is all about. In the end, taste and quality of ingredients are what matter most, if you add healthy to it, well that is just fabulous. Lucha Libre is truly different in the mexican food category. The more traditional version is literally... More

I had the surf and turf burrito, which had steak and chicken. My boyfriend had the burrito with frenchfries and chipotle mayo in it. They were both really good, and they offered a variety of sauces for dipping. I really liked one with dill in it. It was reasonably priced and we got a seat easily. It's a cool decor,... More

This place was a favorite for my boyfriend when he lived out there..we did a trip last year and this was the first place we went for lunch..I'm sure all the burritos are great but we both loved the surfing California burrito and the cilantro sauce! The sauce bar pretty great too. The decoration inside was pretty awesome, it's decked... More

I have heard about this place for years and finally convinced my husband to pull over and take me. It was SO busy that we almost drove by, but then my husband said we could call our order in (he eats here periodically when at work). We parked in the lot next door and called in our order, 10 minutes... More

This place has great food. Fresh homade tortillas, great burrito fillings and sauces. I got the surf and turf burrito (Steak and Shrimp) and was not dissapointed. My boyfriend had the california burrito, which was the same thing, but had french fries in it! Over it's a really cool place, with interesting decor and fresh delicious food.

For under $8 you get a burrito full of steak AND shrimp! Not to mention at least a half dozen fresh salsa options. These aren't your typical salsas found in the Chili's-esque restaurants across the US. These are fresh, creative, and some typical of any great taco stand south of the border in TJ. The burrito was very good and... More

Food was really good. Atmosphere was tacky but fun. Parking was a nightmare. Right in the middle of eating we had to go feed the meter. Also had to wait in line for about 30 min.

Another stop off on the 'Man vs. Food' recommendations was Lucha Libre. It is difficult to find a parking space near the restaurant and in my head, it was going to be a bigger restaurant. Shop is certainly the right term. We lined up for about 10 minutes to order and tables were at a premium. I ordered the Surf... More
