The food was excellent! I love Mexican food and have tried many, many different Mexican restaurants around Las Vegas. I’d say my carnitas enchiladas were some of the best I’d ever had! The portions were a perfect size ... I ate the whole thing). Highly recommend El Luchador!

The veg taco option could use some work.
Everything else was good!
The dessert could use better plating, and a little more pizzaz for $14.
That being said all of this won't keep me from going back - the service made up for everything

The drinks were excellent but the food not so much. The cumin in the rice was way too overpowering and the rice was still hard as if not the right amount of water was put in. The beans were amazing but the enchiladas were ok, the sauce was pretty sweet. I would come back for the drinks not the food

We dine here ... a lot. The food is terrific every single time, as is the service, generally. Tonite, they were very busy, patio was full and the service suffered but just a bit. Kind of slow. Took a very long time to receive our first cocktails. Nothing heinous, just a function of being incredibly busy.

We celebrated my friends birthday there. They have this tall firecracker sparkler thing that they do. Great for photo ops. We had the melted queso cheese. There are two options. One is super soft and cheesy and the other is baked and melted. Both are GREAT! Just different so be sure to confirm which one you want. The Fajitas are also super yummy as well as the marinated tequila drinks. The place is cute and the staff is ALWAYS great!

Great food and service. Excellent flavor in everything we tried. No idea it was a new restaurant. The only thing to improve on is a quicker turn of making drinks. We were there on a Friday night and they only had 1 person making drinks. Took 10-15 minutes each time. Regardless, we’ll definitely be back!!

The food was amazing. It was quite busy, but we were greeted and seated immediately at the bar. Our drink order was taken very quickly; however, our food order wasn’t taken for about 20 minutes. It appears they are still new and working out the kinks, but it was an overall good experience. We will be going back for sure.

Marissa the Manager is the best that we have seen at her job!! She is attentive to her customers and well versed in drink mixology at the same time. She is the reason why we will be regulars at this place! The food is great, the atmosphere is friendly, and the drinks and service is too notch! We highly recommend it. Tell Marissa we sent you and she will take care of you! ...Monroe Family

This is my 2nd time coming here and this time I brought the family. We all loved it as I knew they would. My kids said it was the best Chips and Salsa they had ever had, they could not stop eating it!!
Our server was in training and did a fantastic job, he asked right away if he should get the kids started first (big win in my book) he explained the menu and gave us a chance to look everything over.
The Chef got my kids food out ASAP!
All our food came out perfect not one thing incorrect!!!!
Dessert was amazing get the Apple Chimichanga to die for!!!!
I recommend this spot to my friends up the street and they ended up going to same night we went and they said it’s their new favorite restaurant!!!!

This was my second time in this restaurant as my first time was excellent so I thought about bringing my spouse here. We had our reservation at 8:15, and we arrived at 8:00pm. As soon as I walked, the hostess loudly asked me if I have a reservation and I could feel tell she wasn’t happy to see me for some reason. When I told her my reservation is at 8:15 she told me I have to ask you to come back later and not show up early (despite few tables inside and outside being open and ready)
5min after that, she walked outside to us to tell me that our table is ready. The food took to long to be served and it wasn’t as pleasant of an experience as I expected unfortunately
