Founder Luchita Galindo informed Luchita's menu with her vast knowledge of regional Mexican fare, designing dishes that introduce diners' palates to authentic regional flavors. Mexican barbecued chicken and lettuce rendezvous at the intersection of sour cream, salsa aguacate, and queso fresco on the poorly organized yet delicious streets of flautas de barbacoa de pollo ($6.50). In the queso fundido ($7.50), jalapeño and poblano peppers mingle with cheese-drenched chorizo, and the nearby tacos de carne asada ($14.25) host sizzling thinly spiced rib eye surrounded by onions and cilantro. Like a kangaroo packing its pouch with valuable gemstones before bounding away, the chiles rellenos ($14.95) stuffs two poblano peppers with cheese before coating them in egg batter. Luchita's also crafts flan ($3.75) or fries up a sopapilla ($4.75), providing dessert options available only to Groupon diners.
In 1981, Luchita Galindo and her son Jorge began Luchita's, a humble family endeavor that focuses on fresh, authentic dishes. Over the course of 30 years, the Galindo family has continued to grow along with their restaurant, which began as a 24-seat eatery and currently occupies three locations throughout the Cleveland area.
Luchita's chefs work to maintain the family's vision while constantly seeking out new flavors to add to the menu. Their specialties include authentically prepared meats and seafood, such as shredded chicken simmered in a smoky sauce (tinga de pollo), tender strips of marinated steak (carne asada), and shrimp sautéed with potatoes, cactus, and poblano peppers (camarones borrachos). Chef Galindo also concocts vegetarian-friendly entrees, such as cheesy chiles rellenos, and tinkers with new recipes until—like a klutz unleashed on the stage of an awards show—he stumbles on a winner.
