Enjoy a feast at Lucha Loco, which serves some of the best authentic Mexican dishes. The alfresco seating is decorated beautifully and clearly on point with the Mexican theme. There are several couch seats at the garden terrace if you want cozy seating, but they’ve also got high tables and bar stools. At night, the ambience is great because the garden terrace is littered with a string of lights that adds to the atmosphere.
