I love this place. Lots of cool Lucha libre stuff on the walls and great food. One of my favorite places to go when I visit San Diego

Small over and over hyped. We live in San Diego and there many other taco spots with better tacos, faster service, and less of a wait. Try Tacos El Gordo on the southside, Salud! in Barrio Logan, just to name a few. Again, its San Diego, 8 miles from the Mexican border.

A former Southern Californian living in Idaho, whenever we fly into San Diego, that is the first place we stop - always! And always crowded but worth the wait. Counter service but food comes up fast. Outstanding Mexican food!

Well, I must say probably some of the best asada fries I've had yet! Also had the surf and turf burrito which was excellent as well. Great service. Hit this place up for some late night munchies. Doesn't disappoint!

When I first visited San Diego in 2010, I made sure to stop at Lucha Libre for dinner one evening. Admittedly I only knew about this restaurant because of Man vs Food, but between that and being a fan of the Lucha theme, I could not pass this up. I always had fond memories of my one visit here, but... More

Definitely not a good place to get a burrito. I got the California one with the steak and shrimp. The burrito was mostly tortilla and the tortilla was extremely dry. None of my party came out of the restaurant feeling good. We had a failed hike that day and lunch was still the worst thing that happened. If there was... More

Went here yesterday. The wait was about 20 mins, which I was told it's normally 45 mins. The service was great, very friendly staff. I ordered the Surfing' California burrito. The price was a good price since this burrito had steak and shrimp in it, and it was larger than most local taco shops. Hubby got rolled tacos and we... More

Go early, there will be a line! We were second in line so it was all good. Yummy complimentary chips with a bevy of sauced available (free!) for dipping. The hubbs and I split the surf and turf, it was BOMB! Large and meaty and full of flavor. They absolutely do not skimp on the goods! The atmosphere is SO... More

We can here based on reviews and the line was out to the sidewalk when we arrived at 5:30 on a Sunday evening. It took us about 30 minutes by the time we ordered our food. And only about 5 minutes after that to get our food so it was pretty quick considering the line we were in. There is... More
