This is a go-to place for me with all my food allergies. The owners and wait staff are VERY knowledgeable about gluten/celiac and other food allergies! My favorite is the chips/guacamole and many options for salsa! I recently tried the Quinoa salad with chicken...by far my favorite dinner item! Many options for seating..bar area or outdoor seating are my favorite but there is a very good sized room for dining for larger groups! I go to Lucha 1-2 times per month! Enjoy!

We had lunch here after a soccer tournament game. It’s a cute restaurant and bar. Fun decorations, great service and a nice bar area where we were able to watch a soccer match.

Food was tasty overall - we had chips and salsa. Liked the mango black bean salsa and the smoky chipotle one. Many salsa choices. Chips were good, not greasy. Our main meals were the verde burrito, enchiladas Rajas and the southwestern chop salad. We were happy with the quantity, quality and freshness of ingredients. Only opportunity for improvement was another spin of the salad greens as they were a little watery. Also, both the salad and enchiladas could have used a bit more spice.

Overall, recommend coming here, especially if you want a local, friendly feeling restaurant.

Don’t bother trying this place out. Chips and salsa and margaritas are average. Innovative menu but somehow doesn’t deliver on taste and quality. There is nothing “authentic” about this place if you’re looking for true Latin flavors.

My husband and I went over the weekend for the first time. I was a little disappointed. The service wasn't the fastest and they were not busy. The food was good. It will be awhile before we return.

Found this restaurant online after Fresco at Anderson Japanese Gardens was very crowded. The food was innovative, delicious. The Jam tacos were outstanding! We loved their selection of salsas. And, their Happy Hour prices on drinks was an unexpected surprise. We'll be back.
