Went here after a bad customer service place at another restaurant a few blocks away. Customer service was great and food was even better. I got the 4 rolled tacos which were really delicious!

We ordered the Poblano burrito and the shrimp burrito. The poblano was OK, I expected more flavor, could not taste the poblano peppers. The shrimp taco was not good...the shrimp were really fishy and the ones that were not fishy had no flavor at all....More

This place was recommended to us. Too small. No one was there to clean the tables. We couldn’t sit inside because the padded booth tilts forward and we would constantly slide down. The salsa bar was messy and the food was just ok. I would...More

This is place is pretty cool. Mexican Wrestling theme with those crazy masks everywhere, a fun Manu with items such as a Suplex Quesadilla, Full Nelson Enchiladas, and Knockout Fries. Be prepared for a L-O-N-G wait. My surf and turf taco was excellent with shrimp,...More

“Lucha Libre” is Mexican pro wrestling. The nature of which is filled with high-flying acrobatics, intense action, and characters as unique and entertaining as their masks/costumes. Our food is inspired by just that, blending traditional mexican food with unique ingredients giving you flavors that will entertain your palate and “Face-punch your tastebuds!” Lucha Libre is in part a celebration of life and all that makes it interesting. Our use of gold, hot pink, and light blue in our decor is an homage to the decadence and gaudiness of Lucha Libre culture. Our menu follows suit. One of our signature items is our Surfin’ California Burrito. Steak, shrimp, avocado, jack cheese, pico de gallo, Super Secret Chipotle Sauce, and Fresh Fries (Yes, fries. It’s a San Diego thing) wrapped in a flour tortilla. It is best enjoyed in our Champions Booth. Reservations for our Champions Booth must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Maximum party of 4. Reservations can be made on our website.
