Description: “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.

Stopped here based on reviews and decor. It isn't everyday you can enjoy a burrito and everything luche in one place. Food came out fast and was good. I won't say it was the best California burrito I have ever eaten but it was the best in a restaurant completely decked out in luche libre awesomeness.

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.
We chalked it off to 'Been there, done that'

this place has worthy being in all tour food shows in TV, food is ok, super fresh an unapologetic, salsas and service are wonderful, but the most amazing thing is the story of how this little hole in the wall rose to fame in a gourmet city such as SD.
Try the seafood burrito with Marlin and ALL of the salsas, they are great!
