Saw this place on man vs food. After finally getting to eat here the food was amazing! Staff was friendly and welcoming. Tacos were bigger then average and very tasty. Lots of salsa to choose from and the free chips were great!

This little hidden gem was a gift on a busy evening . The food was great the staff really friendly and the food was de-lish . This food is so authentic that even the salsas make you want to spend time south of the border. Great spot

We absolutely LOVED this place. The atmosphere is colorful and bright with lots of wrestling memorabilia everywhere and even a wrestling ring in the back which is reserved for private parties (for eating, not wrestling). It is a fast food restaurant so there are no waiters serving you, you order at the counter and they call you on the loudspeaker... More

Stumbled across this dive (and I mean that in a good way) on the way out of town. Normally we grab a bite at El Indio, but this time we filled up gas at the Washington street exit and while filling up my wife said "that place looks interesting" pointing to Lucha Libre. I did a quick check on Yelp... More

My husband & I love coming here every time we come to SD. We both have cravings for their surf & turf tacos, which are the bomb! 1 taco will fill you up though -- not your average taco! We've tried other things too: tap out taco (not such a fan), veggie taco (I've had better elsewhere), California burrito (very... More

This is my second time coming and what another great experience! A small restaurant with wrestling decor. A lot of great food choices. I got the California burrito which was huge and good! A lot of great hot, mild, and sweet salsas to try.

At first sight, the place itself doesn't look very good. But once you come in you encounter a great staff and really good and satisfying food. The prices are o.k. If you're looking for a restaurant with waiters and things like that don't come here. It's more like a fast food place, and yet it's much better. Defiantly coming back!

The best burrito I ate in my entire life and I've tried many! The staff is cool and fun! The portions are perfect, one burrito will definitely fill you up! It gets pretty hectic here in the evenings. There was a line going out the door when I went of people getting their burrito fix. Had to wait a bit... More

I was really excited to come here but I have to say that the food wasn't as great as I thought it would be. It wasn't horrible just average. We loved the whipped drinks and the decor was awesome! Our kiddos (12 and 5yr old) loved the lucha libre theme. I would go back just to reserve the VIP booth... More

Yes there is a long line. But the food speaks for itself. It's good. And it's fun. Burritos, tacos a Jarrito and some flan. Great place to be.

Thank Tom D
