We were looking for authenticity. My frozen margarita was a chemical-tasting mix. Our burritos and chimichangas were dry. On the plus side, the refried beans were good, the guac with goat cheese was super, and they had a selection of Mexican beers. Did we have a trainee cook that night? Did our waitress wait too long to bring our food... More

They also have a bar. The food was good and my co worker said the margaritas were awesome ! My only... More

Seriuosly, GO TO LUCHITA'S! This place has the best food, no matter what you get! I always get the empanadas, which are more of a puerto rican food, but are simply amazing. Can't get past them!

Just got back from a double date (used a great Groupon) and it was simply delicious. The picado guac is to die for. Everything was so fresh. This was my first time, but this place is a staple in Cleveland - it has been open for very many years and is famous for its classic yummy Mexican food. Highly recommended.

It may not be large- in fact it is small- quaint and relaxed. The food here is always consistently good! You get a very good meal for a very good price. It's flavorful and a wonderful taste of Mexico. The service is top notch. The drinks are quite tasty too. I recommend the 'gold' margarita- the way it was meant... More

I do not know what all the hype is about; we have been there several times before but never impressed. Decided to try again recently, but will probably not go back. One of our group got a quesadilla which ended up looking like a fried burrito folded up like a taco - with very little stuffing inside!! Another got a... More

Recently many of my large family met up in Cleveland for a fundraiser. We had dinner at Luchitas Mexican Restaurant. We had 10 in our group and they actually took a reservation for a Saturday night which was great. We were seated quickly and soon had fresh, hot tortilla chips with an amazing salsa on the table. They kept the... More

A hole in the wall but like many, the food was absolutely terrific. Local atmosphere and a relaxed, comfortable dining experience! Recommend 5 stars
