Delicioso!

I loved my Surfin California burrito. It was huge and so yummy. The steak inside it was tender and so flavorful. The salsas were wonderful. However be aware that you may be required to wait in a direct sunlight line to order and seating options are limited on busy days!

In a town where good Mexican food is easy to find, Lucha Libre is fresh and innovative. The long lines are worthwhile. But for a real treat, call ahead for reservations in the Golden Booth, where you will enjoy no lines, sit-down service, and a comfy booth that is so over-the-top gawdy that it's good!

Stopped in here at about 10 PM on a Thursday evening. I had two of the seafood tacos - they were delicious!! They also gave me free nacho chips, and they had a salsa bar with maybe ten different salsas... They were also delicious - and hot!!! I understand that I was lucky not to find a line! Given the...

Love the decor and love the food more. The place gets busy so try going at an off time. I can't eat carbs so I order a Carne asada burrito without the tortilla but ask them to add lettuce instead. It was perfect. Guacamole to die for and salsa fresca. The serving was huge My favorite part is the creamy... More

Ate there this weekend the line can be intimidating but it is worth it! The food is great and the price is very reasonable. It's a really cool place.

We went by close to closing time on a Wednesday night. The bar next door had a lot of people standing out and blocking the entrance (it was hard to tell if they were waiting to get in as well). But the ambiance of Lucha Libre is a little like a night club. The music is so loud it is... More

Never would've stopped in here without the high recommendations we got from several people. Looks shady on the outside, but it really isn't. Food was fantastic, and if there is a line, wait! You definitely won't regret it.

I went late at night on a week night and there was no line and easy parking... I really enjoyed the surf and turf burrito.. shrimp with garlic butter sauce and steak... I want to return so I can try the california burrito. I liked the fact that the flavors were unlike any that I have had before.

The surf & turf tacos are reason enough to drive down and wait in line! Such a good combo- yummy and fresh... Can't wait to go back for more!!

Each time we have visit we drive by this place and there's always a line out the door. So on the day we visited the line was short and the line wasn't that long. The interior is pretty cool with the Mexican wrestling theme, masks and all, very cool. However, we didn't visit to see wrestling memorabilia and masks we... More
