Keyword YET! We have been getting quite a few questions about if we are opening up for dine-in this week! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to invite you, your family, and your friends in to DINE AT Lucha again. We very much look forward to it!!!That said, we have made the decision to take our time and not open for dine-in service quite yet. I know this might come as a disappointment to many of you but we do have a few good reasons and we would like to let you know more about them.First and foremost is concern for our staff. I’d hate to bring them back only to have to lay them off in a few days or a week or so because COVID numbers went back up. We are going to keep an eye on the numbers posted by the Illinois Department of Public Health as we choose a re-opening date.While the past several months have taught us lots of lessons, one of the most important has been patience. We’ve learned to take a measured approach to our decisions and not to make them quickly.We’ve also done a ton of planning and continue to work internally so that when we do open, we’ll be able to give you the best experience possible.Before I finish, I want you to know one thing. We can’t stress how great it has been to serve each and every one of you these past few months. We’ve had a lot of fun curbside and we don’t plan to stop that anytime soon. Our mission hasn’t, nor will it change - we love bringing people together, whether it be our table or yours.Thank you for choosing Lucha Cantina!

Things you don't see that make your experience greater We have gotten a lot more efficient through the last 8 months at making sure your to-go order is ready right when you get here. Of course, sometimes we get it done a few minutes early. In the bar, we have six “hot boxes” that would normally be used for catering. These hold your food pipin' hot till you arrive right on time, or a couple minutes later. We also have nine commercial grade insulated bags to hold even more food hot.Now the part you see.You pull up curbside and either Drake or myself will get your name which we’ll use to locate your ticket.If your food isn’t quite ready (which happens sometimes too) we put your name & car on a chalkboard so we know where to take your food the SECOND it comes out of the kitchen.We do all this so that you have a great curbside experience when you order here.Let us know if you love learning more about BEHIND THE SCENES and we will tell you more! Happy Monday! Just a reminder, we are open for curbside pickup at 4p today! YES we are open on Mondays!P.S. This is an older photo with our catering hot boxes. We wear our masks from open to close.

EAT THE RAINBOW We have a new taco for you this weekend!! Güeros Tacos. Chiles Güeros are what banana peppers are called in Mexico. For this taco we are covering our carnitas with a salsa made from fire-roasted tomatoes, poblanos & “Chiles Güeros” –– hence the name. This sauce is packed with a rainbow of flavor and tastes more sweet than spicy. Served with Chihuahua cheese and then topped with a cabbage, radish and pepper slaw. Give these a try and let us know what you think. We think they’re pretty darn good!READY TO ORDER THIS? Yes! You are!Curbside Pickup starts at 4pm! Order through our Website: lucharockford.com Or By phone: (815) 977-4319Pickup at 1641 N Alpine Rd
