Loved the burritos. Their special sauce was delicious and the salsas are so tasty. There is one to fit everyone's taste.

I had the Holy Moly burrito and thought it was great which says a lot because I LOVE mole and am use to my moms/sisters version and having it in many restaurants in the US and... More

In San Diego last week for a family vacation. We had done our research beforehand and Lucha Libre was on our 'Must Eat' list. They did not disappoint. I had a Surfin' California burrito and it might have been the best burrito I have ever had and we regularly eat fantastic burritos made by a family from Mexico City. My... More

Fun atmosphere and delicious burritos and tacos. I loved the microphone that pulled down to announce the orders just like at a wrestling venue. Awesome place to eat, but it does get busy during lunch rush hour, but worth it!

Very good food. There was a line out the door! Parking was hard to find as it is only a small parking lot meant for the managers of the other stores. The lines move fast and even though it does not have a lot of seating space, people usually eat and then leave to give other people a chance to... More

Went because my son is a foodie and it is a 'dive' but well worth a visit if you enjoy Mexican - was really busy and portions were large but I guess we weren't in the mood for Mexican because it wasn't to our liking. Fun adventure though!
