I was brought here by my wife and son. Lovely atmosphere, but great food. My two dishes were different but a delightful change and hard to categorize, which is the point. I can tell I will be copying the recipes at home, which seems like the best endorsement.

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

My daughter and I arrived at this restaurant and was greeted by an awesome hostess that was friendly, beautiful, and engaging... As she brought us to our seat, she assured us that we were in for a treat. We were then greeted by an even more delightful waitress that was precious and served us like royalty. The cuisine was so...

My husband, daughter and I went to Lucha Tigre without knowing what to expect. When we entered the establishment, we were greeted immediately and very friendly. We were asked if we preferred indoor or outdoor dining. Since it was such a beautiful fall evening, we chose outdoor dining. The lighting was cute, strung over the tables in a special way.... More

Five of us stopped by for a drink with a snack and found this restaurant to be really charming. Drinks are imaginative (the watermelon mojito with ginger was one choice). We ordered guacamole with ginger that arrived with two kinds of homemade chips and it was really delicious. I could have made it my meal. The restaurant describes itself as... More

Very small restaurant with limited abilty to seat groups of folks together. Menu is eclectic, Beef bulgogi nachos were terrific. Dumplings tasty but beware hot juices when you bite them. The grilled corn appetizer was tasty but way over priced at 5$. Wasabi mashed potatoes get a thumbs down. Bland and unappealing green. Three Tiny little two bite soft tachos... More

Taco Tuesday is a great deal but we came on Monday. Had the tacos anyway. I've never had a bad meal here. Reasonable prices, good service, free parking. I see everybody from couples, families, seniors. Can't miss!

Point blank...you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't hit up Lucha Tigre for a meal when you are in the Chapel Hill area. Everything is DELICIOUS. If you want to try more of a combo of their tacos go on the taco night(Tuesday). Their non taco meals are to die for as well!
