quirky and fun

love the food, the ambiance might be a bit over the top for some, as well as the usual wait to get served, very popular with locals so that should tell you a lot

Awesome Mexican food! We take the drive from OC at least once a year! They have an awesome surf n turf burrito, TJ hotdogs are delicious, and elotes are on point. Make sure to try all of the sauces! The orange and creamy green ones are the best! Get a meal to go because you will leave craving more! If... More

First of all, I came simply because it was featured on Fung Bro's Food show. I arrived at the restaurant around 1-1:30pm on a Tuesday afternoon to avoid potential long line and I was lucky to wait for a shorter amount of time. The décor is definitely interesting and fun with wrestling theme. The burrito I ordered and shared with... More

Not good at all. San Diego has some excellent Mexican food. This place is a novelty with mediocre food. Its is super filthy. Just go into the bathroom and you will likely walk right out. We had a California burrito, tacos and carne asada burrito. Messy and nothing to write home about. Flavorless. Im surprised this is on the radar... More

Make a reservation for the Champion Booth!!! 1) you get to skip the line, which usually exists. 2) guaranteed seat, not always an opportunity, 3) it comes with table service, 4)it's no extra charge. It's a great place to eat with quality food. The Nacho sampler has many types of dips, the burritos are large, filling, and excellent!

We are here with our 2 kids (ages 4 and 7) and would highly recommend it! The food was great and so was the price (our bill came to $35 for the 4 of us including drinks). One thing to keep in mind is that you can't assume you are going to be able to grab a table since there... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again. We are on our honeymoon and had made a list of all the places we wanted to eat. This was towards the top based on all the features on various cooking shows, but it didn't live up to the hype in our opinion. The TJ Corn was the best... More

I loved my Surfin California burrito. It was huge and so yummy. The steak inside it was tender and so flavorful. The salsas were wonderful. However be aware that you may be required to wait in a direct sunlight line to order and seating options are limited on busy days!

In a town where good Mexican food is easy to find, Lucha Libre is fresh and innovative. The long lines are worthwhile. But for a real treat, call ahead for reservations in the Golden Booth, where you will enjoy no lines, sit-down service, and a comfy booth that is so over-the-top gawdy that it's good!

Stopped in here at about 10 PM on a Thursday evening. I had two of the seafood tacos - they were delicious!! They also gave me free nacho chips, and they had a salsa bar with maybe ten different salsas... They were also delicious - and hot!!! I understand that I was lucky not to find a line! Given the...
