Worth a wait

It's a tiny little place with a queue out the door. We waited 20 mins to get in and I hate queuing, but it was worth it. We saw this place on Man vs Food and I tried the California burrito. Wow. It was the best burrito I've ever had. Period. The setting is real cool too, with the Mexican... read more

Dear Mr. Louis: My family and I spent a week during March, 2013 in San Diego for Spring break and had a great time. The last dinner of our vacation was at Lucha Libre. My son and I ordered the surf and turf burritos, while my wife and daughter each ordered the veggie burritos. My wife informed the register staff... More

By far the best burritos we had in San Diego. Been in San Deigo for a week and had been looking for something comparable to Texas tacos... FOUND IT! My wife and I decided to share a burrito, worst choice ever! It left me wanting more! Worth the visit!

A total shrine to wrestling. Big meal for $11 including a large burrito, chips, salad, and beans. I got the California burrito which substitutes rice for french fries. Would try the surfer burrito next time. Salsa bar and Mexican sodas available. Loved the old tv that was converted into a trash can (with anchorman scene on it). Ambiance could not... More

The burritos were delicious. I had a mole burrito while my wife had the California. Neither was disappointing. The restaurant is dressed up to keep your attention to the sport of lucha libre.

We went here because my boys love Man Vs Food. Ok I'm a bit partial to him too but hey-ho ;) The restaurant is tiny, and has a queue out the door. This tells you it's going to be good and it was! It doesn't look like anything special from the outside and isn't in the nicest of settings but... More

Even though the line was long to order, it moved fast. I can understand why it was crowded after I ate their amazing tacos and huge burrito. I had the surf and turf tacos, which rocked. And we had no trouble finding a seat. Delicious salsas. Yumm!

On the recommendation of a friend we went with our teen girls for dinner while on vacation in San Diego. The place was very kitschy and had a wide variety of customers - young, old, families, college students, bikers etc. the food was great. The ingredients were fresh - we had the California burritos and tacos. The salsa bar had... More

A lot of people would disagree with me about this, but this place is average at best. I don't know if we caught them at a bad night, but I had the carne asada friends and California burrito. The fries were soggy and the burrito was bland. Now, if you're not from SoCal, let it be known that the CA... More
