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.

Every Tuesday I visit for the peanut butter tacos. It's fairly crowded, but they accommodate quickly for all guests. Lots of taco choices

Tacos are good. The staff is friendly enough ( primarily college kids) but the Paloma's are worth the trip and wait. Super yummy. Ask for extra lime. There may or may not be a hidden menu. You may or may not want to ask about it. You may or may not get a peanut butter taco. You may or may... More

Fun specials each day - try the peanut butter tacos! They also have some cool drinks and the owner almost always checks to make sure the service is top notch

Went with my family. A nice, small restaurant with an outdoor patio. The bar and decor are really nice and somewhat quirky. I had the carnitas slider and Slayer taco. Both were excellent. Service was a bit slower than expected, but not bad. It took a little bit of effort to find something that my 5 and 7 year old... More

I generally don't like fish tacos but my daughter talked me into trying them and they were awesome. Cold beer. Cute decor.

The environment is fantastic, people are friendly. Food is to die for. Plus, sangrias + tacos in what looks a lot like a biergarten, except with tacos. It's awesome.

Taco Lucha is our favorite place to eat. This includes dozens of restaurants all across the US, Mexico, and Jamaica. Often when we're on vacation we will rate a place based on comparing it to Taco Lucha, and seldom are we as satisfied. Randy does a great job there, the service is tremendous, and the food is awesome. As far... More

We decided to try Taco Lucia after reading the reviews. Boy, they were right! Everything was delicious, and the raspberry black bean dip is not to be missed! We literally locked the platter clean. We also had the tacos. We tried 4 different kinds and I cannot pick a favorite. They were all incredible. We also had the Nancy (my... More
