I enjoyed the mole carnitas enchiladas. Guacamole was made at table, Margaritas fresh and delicious along with handmade tortilla chips great salsa. Service was grest too. We dumped the traditional Michocan places and only come here now for better authentic Mexican dishes. Oh yeah and very good Ceviche! I highly recommend this great spot!

Food is terrific. Even the salsa they give with the cups is amazing. I could easily go back for some drinks with their chops and salsa. The steak specialty dish is definitely one to try.

My family has eaten here a few times now and we like the food. Unfortunately last night was not the best experience. We ordered appetizers and they took a very long time to come out. Our waitress disappeared for extended periods of time. It would have been nice if she had checked in with us a little more often and let us know about the delays in the kitchen. Overall not the worst experience but we left feeling a little frustrated about the long wait time for food.

This was definitely a one and done kind of place. It looked cool and drinks were decent but the food was just ok. It could be better. The rice was dry/over cooked and had no flavor not worth the calories. Beans were just ok tasted more like American baked beans. For the price it was not worth it. This place could be so much better than it was. There were about 15 tables inside and over 10 servers. It was excessive they were just standing around with nothing to do since there were so many of them and so little patrons. The music was loud you couldn’t really hear the server. It isn’t authentic Mexican very white washed. The servers were nice nothing wrong with the people but the food was nothing special and not worth going back for.

Visited El Luchador Mexican Kitchen and Cantina during restaurant week. Menu selection was nice although no substitutions allowed. Service was wonderful… attentive and friendly, not over-bearing. Food was very good and plentiful with cute presentations. Rice and beans were served in cute little jars.

Disappointing! But I will say they acknowledged the issues and eventually took care of everything. Got seated and then forgotten for about 20 minutes. Chips come. No napkins or silverware for another 20. Dinner arrives lukewarm at best. Fajitas not cooked as requested. They finally acknowledged that our order was overlooked which is why it took so long to arrive. Our first experience there was fantastic. This past one was the complete opposite. Disappointing!
