We really enjoyed the delicious Vegan options. And the house-made guacamole was also excellent. And finally - good drink options at reasonable prices.

Main course delivered within 5 minutes of the appetizers - should have been staggered. Chicken fajita tacos were horrible - could not recognize the meat as chicken

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't care for your entree. Did you let your server know? We have a standing policy here that our guests won't be allowed to pay for food they didn't like. I really wish we could have resolved this for you while you were here. OT won't let me type in my email address here, but you contact me through our website and if you'd like to send me your mailing address I'd love to send you a coupon so that we can make it right on your next visit.

I was not ready to have Mexican food in Rockford. My party decided to give a chance. We were pleased to no end. The food and the service spot on. Their salsas are made in house and super fresh. Our server was an absolute delight. When in Rockford I think everyone needs this experience. Thanks.

Lucha Cantina never disappoints. We had family in from out of town and this was a "must go" spot for us during their quick weekend trip. The food is great and clean. The service is outstanding. Great drink selection too with some nice rotating beer selections.

Because there seemed to be only one waitress covering the room and there were 3 big tables & some small ones waitress seemed a bit harried.
Food was wonderful everyone enjoyed their selection. Making reservation through Open Table" was a breeze

We sat outside on the patio and it was very cute and comfortable. It makes you forget that the restaurant is located in a strip mall setting. It has cute outdoor lights and umbrellas. The food was delicious. The spiciest salsa is a must try and their beans are so flavorful. All the drinks were delicious that we tried, especially the spicy house marg with a tajhin rim! We will definitely be back!

Nice place for lunch or dinner, would not recomend for a date due to the noise level. Something other than bare metal ceiling would help. Food is good, value is good, service is sometimes a little slow.
Wine by the bottle is something missing on the menu.

Food was tasty, but disappointed that chips and salsa are not served complimentary, you have to order them for additional charge. Would have liked server to recommend dishes and explain salsa options without us having to ask.

Great Mexican food. I will admit was hesitant because each time we have frequented a Mexican Cantina we have been a little disappointed. Not with this place. Food was excellent, was able to move to bar to watch the Man Utd game with no trouble. Great place to grab a bite to eat!

It was our first time at the restaurant, so our waitress was wonderful in going through the items with my 12 year old son. We decided on the guacamole and salsa appetizer. I had a bowl dinner and he had the burrito with some changes that they got perfectly. We were quite full, but will definitely go back again!

Way too much red onions in the burritos and chimichanga. It overpowered the taste of the food.

Over all, the times we have been there have been good. Maybe this last time the server was having a bad day. We weren't there at a very busy time...only a few tables seated. It was extremely loud though. We were celebrating a b-day...and the server brought out a desert, we didn't ask for but were charged. We hadn't planned on desert here (actually had plans for afterward)
The food was good...as it always has been.

Every time I’m in Rockford I visit Lucha Cantina. I love the tots. I usually order the chicken fajita tacos. This time 3/2/19 they didn’t have any taste. I had to add a lot of salt.
I love the pineapple salsa and the queso. I wish they offered a mild pineapple salsa because it’s really hot.
The service has always been great. I would definitely recommend this to friends.
