Cant believe we didnt try it 5 years ago.. Authentic mexican food. My mom said she had the best chili rellenos than anywhere shes ever tried them! Friendly service. After talking to the guy working, hes been 30 min from our small little town in Tennessee! Very friendly people...and great mexican food, EVEN THE STRAWBERRY Margaritas!

Good Mexican food prepared to order. Eat outside but watch out for the wandering chickens! Self service. Three degrees of hotness for the giveaway sauces.

Love it. I enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant. It is a hidden treasure...Hidden among lots of shopping and the other historic building.

When you are tired of spending $15 for a buger, this place is a nice oasis! I like to call is islandMex as it is not like the U.S. mainland...but as close as you are going to get. The burritos are big and about $9-10. Some nights they have crunchy tacos with your choice of meats 2 for $3. The $1.50 house margaritas are in 6 oz cups and still taste like you are sucking on a lime! Spend the extra buck and get a real one! You need to order from the bar and wait for your name to be called when ready. Food prep is very fast by island standards. Overall enjoyable and a great place to take the kids.

Luncheria was one of the first restaurants I discovered when I moved to St. Croix 27 years ago. It's not "fine" food and isn't meant to be. It's very good Tex-Mex in a very casual atmosphere and the frozen margaritas, as the title of this review says, is the best anywhere. The house margarita has the kick of a mule. If you drink three or four of them you'll see things that aren't there. Lennie, the owner started as a cook and eventually bought the restaurant. He's one of the hardest working guys I know. There's not table service. Your order the bar and they call your name when it's ready. Be sure to check out the three salsa levels including my favorite Pico de Gallo.
