This place was a favorite for my boyfriend when he lived out there..we did a trip last year and this was the first place we went for lunch..I'm sure all the burritos are great but we both loved the surfing California burrito and the cilantro sauce! The sauce bar pretty great too. The decoration inside was pretty awesome, it's decked... More

I have heard about this place for years and finally convinced my husband to pull over and take me. It was SO busy that we almost drove by, but then my husband said we could call our order in (he eats here periodically when at work). We parked in the lot next door and called in our order, 10 minutes... More

This place has great food. Fresh homade tortillas, great burrito fillings and sauces. I got the surf and turf burrito (Steak and Shrimp) and was not dissapointed. My boyfriend had the california burrito, which was the same thing, but had french fries in it! Over it's a really cool place, with interesting decor and fresh delicious food.

For under $8 you get a burrito full of steak AND shrimp! Not to mention at least a half dozen fresh salsa options. These aren't your typical salsas found in the Chili's-esque restaurants across the US. These are fresh, creative, and some typical of any great taco stand south of the border in TJ. The burrito was very good and... More

Food was really good. Atmosphere was tacky but fun. Parking was a nightmare. Right in the middle of eating we had to go feed the meter. Also had to wait in line for about 30 min.

Another stop off on the 'Man vs. Food' recommendations was Lucha Libre. It is difficult to find a parking space near the restaurant and in my head, it was going to be a bigger restaurant. Shop is certainly the right term. We lined up for about 10 minutes to order and tables were at a premium. I ordered the Surf... More

If you can handle a long line, SMALL parking lot, and barely any seating, the experience may be for you. Personally, I was entertained with the Nacho Libre theme. The long wait to find a parking spot, then the LONGER wait in love wad too much. Wonderful staff who were friendly and helpful. The price was PERFECT...under $20 fir two... More

In San Diego, land of the excellent burrito shops Lucha Libre is still damn good. They use a couple sauces and spice things up just enough to stand out, but all the classic taco shop flavors are there. Considering it is about 10 mins from the airport it is an easy stop if you have hungry travelers arriving or if... More

Ate here twice during my vacation in San Diego. Although I would not classify it as Mexican food, it was very good. I had the surf and turf one day and the Classic California with beef the other day. The Classic California was my favorite. The burritos are stuffed and delicious. The salsa bar and chips are great. Try this... More
