Lucha Tigre offers a delicious mix of Latin and Asian flavors from a well-conceived menu. The service is quick and friendly. We often get takeout orders and enjoy a drink at the bar while we’re waiting. Lucha Tigre gets it!

Enjoyed the Ambience and nachos, but the General tso tofu tasted like butter? Honestly, couldn't bring myself to finish it.
