I don't know if anyone else noticed this? But this place does not serve real Mexican food. It is actually the worst Mexican food I have had in my life, and tastes like any random person's first time attempt to make Mexican food. On top of that - it is ridiculously over priced for no good reason. The meat and everything else was dry and tasteless in their dishes, the rice tasted like Ponderous buffet rice, bland sauces, the portions are no bigger if not smaller than most Mexican restaurants - how do you mess up a burrito and enchiladas? This was literally up in the top 10 for worst food I have ever eaten in my life and my date agreed. The atmosphere is also really strange, not private at all, like you are eating with the table next to you. The only thing I will give this place is their service was good - but man, leave Mexican cooking to the real restaurants that know how to do it - I have had better food at TACO BELL!!!

I've recently went to Luchitas hoping it would be a great Mexican food. However, I was sorely disappointed in the quality of food. The food I ordered had very little taste. You would think Mexican food would have alot of spices too it but it didn't. Service was great and people were friendly. Most people don't just go for the atmosphere. They ame for great food. Try Mariachi' or some other place. Luchitas is like a fast food Mexican restaurant.

I can't believe some of the reviews. I have been going to Luchita's for 20 years. It's where I always ask to go to on my birthday. Great food and margarita's. The best salsa and red enchilada sauce around. Helpful hints, order the guacomole picado and ask for your margarita to be hand made.

Just arrived from O.C. and was hungry for mexican food. Friends in Parma recommended Luchitas. I have NEVER received such great customer service from a restaurant ANYWHERE! The manager gave us VIP treatment, making me feel like I wasn't just another tourist. He and his staff literally went above and beyond, making me feel as though I was a star! We were served plates of tender and delicious carne asada and carnitas, two types of flavorful rice and beans, fresh chips with mouth watering salsa, and a wonderful (and very different) guacamole. The margaritas were EXCELLENT! Five stars for both the excellent food and outstanding customer service! Coming from an OC girl who has mexican restaurants on every corner, I was very pleased with my experience at Luchitas and will definately visit again on my next trip to Ohio.

I was looking for good Mexican food in Cleveland for a good price. This is not what I found at this restaurant. First of all when I heard the cost of my total order, I almost could not believe it. I would have gladly paid this price, however, had the food not been bland and had I even been able to finish my entire dinner. Overall I was greatly disappointed in the experience and will not be going back.

The place looks run down to me at walk in, and I've seen real Mexican food in Texas, California, Mexico, etc. The Menu is awful, my Margarita tasted like ice with red juice, worst ever! The Pepsi didnt even taste like anything close to Pepsi Cola (Sugar Water)
I seriously never tasted such bad so called Mexican food in my life. Just start with
bad tortilla chips and not anyones idea of a decent salsa. No way, no how recoomended. I can't understand why people would eat ther more than once. The servers are not well dressed, food brought out in towels, not on trays. They stand and watch you eat, ready to take your plate and give you the bill. Wasted Money! Please try other Real Mexican Restaurants. Thank-you
