Well this is always on my go to list when I'm in the area. I tried the other location last time and was not very happy. But came back to the original today and got the Surf n Turf burrito that I know and love. Everything was perfect today even the little wait in line.

We came here for dinner on a Friday evening for dinner. When we arrived there was about 4 people in front of us. By the time we ordered the line was pretty long. Fast and friendly service. Great low budget taco selection. Vegetarian options. Fantastic TJ corn. Sweet decor and fabulous salsa and sauce selection.

This place used to be really good, but I feel that the quality has declined in the past year or so. The burritos used to be nice and full and now they remind me of loose sock. They also took the carne asada burrito off the menu. It is still available on request but the menu offers a rice and... More

It's not just that they outfitted the place with Mexican wrestling kitsch; it's that they just seem to have a boatload of fun coming up with their food and making the whole experience entertaining. But to begin with the basics, the food is excellent - inventive, flavorful and very reasonably priced. You line up to order at the counter in... More

Went there on a slow day for them, so no lines. I ordered the California Surfin Burrito and its HUGE and tastes amazing. Why I gave them a five start review aside for the taste and atmosphere is the customer service. We ordered a side of nachos but it was not served when I asked about it they offered to... More

We stopped here on a whim while staying I the area with my teenage boys. So glad we did! It was my sons' favorite eating experience while vacationing. The decor and theme is hilarious and keeps you entertained just with looking around. The tacos are fabulous and priced right for big appetites. Clever "food trays" aka plastic frisbees. Fun to...

Combining my two loves into one amazing and delicious concept. Wrestling and tacos! I truly don't need to eat anywhere else. Yes the gimmick is awesome, but the food is even better! Queso taco, cali burrito, TJ dog, all the sauces... do all of it and tell them ASY TV sent you.

Great taco/burrito shop. Had all types of the California burrito, we liked pork best, most flavourful. Free chips and salsas didn't hurt either. Huge burritos, can easily be shared. Service was fast and friendly. A definite stop.

My boyfriend and I love Lucha Libre! The food is fresh and so yummy!!The green salsa is beyond delicious. My only complaints are that parking can be awful during busy hours, and the restaurant is so small that it can be difficult to find a seat.
