Fodor's Review

Named for a form of Mexican wrestling, this taco shop with its hot-pink walls and shiny booths was famous mostly for its lack of parking until it appeared on the Travel Channel’s “Man v. Food.” Then long lines of burrito-crazed fans began forming outside the walkup window for lunch. Most say the array of gourmet tacos and burritos is worth the wait. The Surfin' California burrito packed with grilled steak, shrimp, french fries, avocado, and chipotle sauce is a favorite. So are the nachos smothered in cheese and guacamole. There are also many meatless options. Don’t park in the gas station next door; they watch and will tow.
