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

This place is unique -- iconic even. Frankly, it is a little creepy too; with wrestling masks and paraphernalia tacked all over the walls. But the service is fast and friendly and the food is good. The food was a little different than I am used to eating in San Diego but good. LL gives you six small plastic cups... More

We come here every time we visit San Diego. Well worth the trip. All of the burritos are great. Make sure you try all of the sauces.

This is a mediocre taco shop, that is not very clean in a sketchy part of town. I didn't understand the hype. I have had much better tacos at so many places. Really San Diego?

You walk into a lucha line to order your food. The service is good, the food was good. The seasonings and salsas were on point. If you're in the downtown area and are craving for tacos, don't hesitate. The decor is all lucha libre memorabilia with lucha libre movies playing on TV. It is interesting. Great environment for families and... More

Stop here with a Local from San Diego. They swear this place is great and I must say it is. The nachos were great, the Surf and Turf Tacos are amazing and lastly the Quesadilla was a surprise and very good. When back in town I will make a stop for sure
