It is said that under a moonless sky, in the hour just before the dawn when the world is at its darkest, that the mysterious entity behind Lucha Cartel was born. Growing up in the tiny village of Macondo, the enigmatic masked wrestler learned the mysteries of Lucha Libre along with what makes Mexican coke so delicious (we’d tell you but then we’d have to pile drive you) the dark arts of the cactus burger (we’d tell you but then we’d have to pile drive you - onto a cactus) and the alchemy behind the perfect margarita (we’ll just tell you if you ask.)
Armed with this forbidden knowledge and obscured behind the glittery mask of the Luchador this faustian foodie journeyed to Philadelphia to found the legendary Lucha Cartel that you know today. Literally meaning “fight agreement” the name is an idiomatic expression for the acknowledgement of the implicit rules of life such as do unto others, tip your bartenders, and the Oxford comma. So come over and enjoy the fruits of our labor - the perfect Mexican fusion menu, craft beers and the preternatural aura of deep magical influence.
