If you saw Jack Black play a masked Mexican wrestler in Nacho Libre, you'll get the idea behind this wacky little taqueria. Wrestling posters, Mexican masks and miniature boxing rings set the scene, with an open kitchen turning out items to share (fried cheese, quesadillas, guacamole), a slew of soft tacos and spicy pork and steak plates. At brunch, don't miss the chilaquiles verdes: fried tortillas smothered in tomatillo salsa, onions and cheese.
