The famous California Burrito, originally from San Diego, can be found here. Delicious with carne asada and added avocado. Pair it up with their mango salsa!

Huge mouthwatering burritos. Authentic delicious salsa bar too. The decor is fun. We went for breakfast around 10am and there was no wait - but the breakfast burritos were great!

So here is a place that like many, can be the best decision if done correctly! The selections are various, so it should offer something good for most people! The food is made fast, so your not stuck waiting long after ordering! They offer a great selection of sauces like mango salsa, something that is not on the typical list... More

I saw Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop on a TV show (Man vs Food) and once I came to San Diego it was on our to do list as one of our first stops in the city! The Mexican wrestling "Lucha Libre" decor is super cool. The place can expand and get some AC because it was hot in there,... More

As previous posters mentioned burritos are very good but what surprised me was just how good the taquitos were. I traded my burro for a family members plate of taquitos. Very good. Now should warn you all this is not really a sit down down comfortable place just good food. We took our grub to go there was not a... More

Food is made fresh; staff is friendly; atmosphere is crazy and fun - all about professional wrestling! The guy who calls out names on orders could be a pro radio announcer - fun to listen to. We ordered take-out: My husband had the HUGE surf 'n turf burrito and said it was the best burrito ever. I had delicious rolled... More

Everything is great about this place - the food, the service, the ambiance, the creative food names. Ordered the Holy Moly (mole burrito) and the Mahi Mahi taco and they were so fresh and tasty with just the right mix of ingredients. Chips and a whole salsa bar really round out this yummy experience. Their fun spin on the Mexican... More

One of a kind atmosphere. If you're in San Diego it's a must stop taco shop with a twist. I only had the rolled tacos and rice, but it all stood up to any of the best in town, and all at a fair price. I can't wait to go back and try another menu item.

My wife and I shared a Surf and Turf burrito and it was great. Lucha Libra was very busy with long lines and somewhat slow handling of orders. Our burrito needed 15 minutes to be served. Food - 5 star, plus lots of great salsas Atmosphere - 3 star, noisy, crowded, a bit messy and lots of photos and things... More

Having remembered this from Man vs Food and seeing it referenced at 538's top burrito places in California (and therefore,the US), I had to stop in. Great ambience...it's small in there, especially as the garish Champions booth probably takes up 20 percent of the place, but whether anybody is sitting there or not, it's awesome to see. Old WWE/WWF championship... More
