The Lucha Libre Taco Shop “TJ” Challenge!
On 09/15/12 Jamie walked into the Lucha Libre Taco Shop in San Diego, California determined to break a record. The record in question? 29 bacon wrapped hotdogs in 20 minutes held by competitive eating legend and Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Champion, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut. The staff at the Lucha Libre Taco Shop were more than happy to indulge Jamie in what most there thought was a fantasy. Off to the champions table Jamie went to attempt to break the house record. Could Jamie beat such a great number? Would the Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop’s bacon wrapped hotdogs best The Bear? You’re about to find out.
From their website: “The Lucha Libre Taco Shop was established on January 2008 in Mission Hills, San Diego. We are three brothers (Jose Luis, Maurilio, and Diego Rojano-Garcia), with mother “B” in the kitchen making the salsas) born in Mexico and raised in San Diego. We’re dedicated to doing business in a style and in a store whose decor represents the same vibrant, high spirits of its namesake wrestling tradition, while serving up fresh, delicious Mexican food.
Our gourmet tacos are made with the freshest ingredients, and we’re proud to have been voted the best burrito in town. Only at Lucha Libre can you get the famous “TJ” dog, an all-beef hot dog wrapped in bacon and topped with grilled vegetables.”
The Lucha Libre Taco Shop is a MUST visit if you are ever in San Diego. Great food, great service, and a great atmosphere! Definitely “Bear Approved”!
