Welcome to El Luchador! We opened our doors in November 2014 after renovating a South Street corner location that used to be a horse stable. We bought a 1960's Airstream and parked it in the front, renovated it, and equipped it with tables and chairs.

We think it’s the perfect spot to serve what we love the most: Mexican Street Food with a So-Cal flair. Come and check us out!

Burritos Vs. Tacos

In the kitchen we take pride in making everything from scratch, from slow-braised meats like carnitas and beef short-ribs to marinated chicken or skirt steak in Adobo, from homemade salsas to pickled vegetables and guacamole. Everything is freshly made-in-house, everyday.

Our menu is divided into three main sections: Burritos, Tacos and Quesadillas. Tough decision. We recommend using our three signature salsas to make the experience unique: the mildest chipotle-tomatillo salsa, the medium El Luchador salsa, and the fiery green cilantro-jalapeno salsa. Don’t pass on those!

We also offer great sides such as guacamole and chips, salsas, nachos and grilled Mexican corn. If you like something sweet we have Cajeta flan and rice pudding. We hope you’ll enjoy our menu as much as we do!
