“This is by far our best bar and it connects to an outdoor communal beer garden that will be shared among the restaurants and breweries,” Olé Hospitality Group Partner Rick Moir said in a statement.

El Taco Luchador has been named the most popular taco spot in the state by multiple outlets, including Buzzfeed and Yelp.

Known for its bright colors and “Luchadore” masks, the restaurant offers more than 10 tacos and Mexican sandwiches known as “tortas,” as well as multiple signature sides and cocktails.
