Whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo or just looking for tasty south of the border cuisine, Greater Cleveland has plenty to satisfy even the most demanding Mexican food lover.
Clevelanders either love Luchita's or hate Luchita's. The flagship of several area restaurants owned by the Galindo family, Luchita's on W. 117th is a corner tavern, turned Mexican restaurant. There's no frills here, but the food is tasty and the service is warm and friendly. Try the "queso fundido" appetizer. It's one of the best dishes in town.Luchita's
