I love tacquerias. In Miami, we enjoy Coyo Taco and Bodega. Visiting San Diego, we were looking for the best Mexican street food and we found it in a super fun spot. I had the Alahambra Burrito and it was certainly among the tastiest burritos...More

Got in right before the infamous lines started forming, but would have been worth the wait had we had to. Food is absolutely fantastic, big portions. Wrestling theme is incredible and hilarious. I recommend to everyone.

The fo9d was just ok- not flavorful at all. The salsa presentation was quite different. 10 salsas to choose from. That was a treat. Helped the food!

I decided to visit Lucha Libre taco shop on a rainy day in San Diego. It came highly recommended from locals. I got the classic California burrito and it did not disappoint. Definitely a heavy and messy burrito, but definitely worth it. Would go back...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.
