I stopped in for lunch because I enjoy good, not boring, average Mexican food & I wasn't disappointed. The food was fresh, the flavors were excellent, the staff very friendly & a fun, upbeat atmosphere. I had a little difficulty finding it from the address but when I parked & walked around, I found it & was glad I took... More

This little Mexican gem was crowded, and we waited awhile, but it was well worth it!! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We started with the bean dip and chips, and wow, the flavors were wonderful! The tacos were excellent, and so were the pork burritos. The beans and potatoes were a bit spicy, but so good - great...

This restaurant is crowded, but when you have good food and drinks what more do you expect. Their fish tacos are to die for I absolutely love them.

Came here on the recommendation of the guys at Brew Bros Hops and Sprockets. They recommended getting one of the burritos but since we were heading back to the bike trail after lunch, we shared three tacos: Fish, Carnitas and Buffalo Chicken. All were excellent but my favorite was Carnitas. The combination of juicy, flavorful pork with pineapple salsa on... More

It was our last day in town after a stressful week of work. Three of us wanted a spot to chill before heading back to our respective duty stations in other states. Well, we were directed to Taco Lucha and were not disappointed: The patio was lovely, the food delicious. I got the "Slayer," which is a spicier street taco... More

This place has really good street tacos. The "Slayer" was my favorite because of hot spicy it was. They are $3.50 a piece and 3 filled me up! I added the sauce that was on the table and my mouth was on fire. But a good fire! Unfortunately, they do not have high chairs at this restaurant, which really was... More

There is no 'slow' time at Taco Luca. It is so good that you can always expect to wait especially if there is more than 1 or 2 in the party. It doesn't see very many but the atmosphere is not too bad. They are the only place I know that makes peanut butter tacos. Delicious! Strange combination, but theirs... More

Overview: Ranked #3 in Manhattan.... REALLY? I should say that I did not take into account the location of this restaurant when deciding to eat here. It is located in Aggieville, home of one of the biggest party areas in the state and maybe the nation. Anyway, you know how when you've been drinking awhile, you get really hungry? And... More

Tacos are the main dish in Taco Lucha. You should order one of each type of it . Also try the cocktails they are awesome. The place is really nice and good options to go out for lunch or dinner.
