This is the food that we love to create and eat. Nothing funky or strange in our recipes. Just good, solid, natural food and drink.Chuck Holcomb
Lucha Cantina’s Story
Lucha Cantina was opened in 2007 by a Minnetonka, MN native named Chuck Holcomb. The idea behind Lucha was to make fresh, natural, fabulous Mexican food & drink that doesn’t kill your wallet or your health.
Lucha Cantina has developed quite a following among locals and guests alike, serving a simple menu of burritos, tacos, and all-juice margartias. People like us because we use honest ingredients, pour REALLY honest drinks, and charge honest prices.
Chuck and his buddy Chris Verikas, a Southbury, CT native, found the Historic Red Ram restaurant. They thought it would be a fine idea to open a bigger, badder Lucha in the tiny mountain town of Georgetown, Colorado. Lucha Georgetown opened in December of 2011 and the city has never been happier.
In 2013, Chuck’s friend and former colleague Joshua Binning opened a brand spankin’ new Lucha in Rockford, Illinois. Lucha Cantina Rockford is a beautiful space, with a wonderful, comfortable bar and a huge patio.
“Life has been pretty darn good so far. We have people visiting us from all over the world, drawn to our unique takes on Mexican and American favorites. It is interesting how far people will drive for good, fresh food.” READ MORE
