Come See El Luchador Taqueria

Three corn tortilla tacos on a plate.

Perched on South Street, not far from the 19 Dutch luxury apartments in NYC, a (relatively) recent contender has entered the mix, looking to become the champion of fine eating in the Seaport area. We’re talking, of course, about Luchadores NYC, the Mexican-styled establishment that’s been exuding charm and character since its inception. To quote The Infatuation on this one of a kind restaurant:

“A taco and burrito shop in a random parking lot-type corner with an Airstream parked outside. Yes, this is a real thing. And it’s most definitely our #1 Seaport recommendation.”

You’ll be in for quite the experience should you choose to have a meal at this out of the ordinary spot. Counter-served Mexican meals with wrestling-themed decor and a wide variety of favorites ranging from classic tacos to contemporary quesadillas with a little twist? It might even seem overwhelming at first, but we’re here to get you acquainted with what to expect so you can add this establishment to your short list and prepare for a trip down to South Street to check it out.

Heading to Luchadores NYC

The long and short of it is that El Luchador is all about great Mexican eating, and they don’t mess around when it comes to creating dishes with equal parts flair, quality, and flavor. Whether you’re after small plates or heaping helpings, you can find what you’re looking for here in the form of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and more.

Complementing all of that tasty food is El Luchador’s rather interesting setting and atmosphere. Perched on what you’d first assume would be a quiet corner, they’ve made themselves kings of the block, and their exterior decoration lets you know that they’re into having a great time. Head inside, and the lucha libre motif adds even more excitement to your meal, as you saunter up to the counter and grab your well-deserved plate of Mexican goodness.

As most regulars will let you know, it’s sometimes loud and occasionally raucous, but it’s always in good spirits and you can turn a not-so-great day into a rather pleasant one just by gracing their doors. If you’ve got time to spare, might we recommend grabbing that meal and setting up on their outdoor patio? You’ll be able to enjoy your Mexican food and soak up the city ambiance all at once, now how’s that for a great dinner experience?
