Guess what Saturday is? It's HALLOWEEN! You have been through a lot this year so we want to make Halloween SPECIAL for you... the grownups too! I have a daughter and even though she is a teenager now, I remember driving her all over town on Halloween so that the grandparents and our friends could see her in her costume. While I have graduated from that, I know that many of you will be doing that very thing this weekend. Make your last stop of the night food (or drinks) from Lucha Curbside for Trick or Tequila on SATURDAY NIGHT! Before you leave the last house Saturday, give us a call and place your to-go order so it’s ready when you arrive. Then get ready for one last treat! Is there a dog in the car? We’ll have treats from The Canine Crunchery, Inc.. Do you have kids in the car? We’ll have individual treat bags. Are there adults in the car? Well we’ll have little bottles of tequila for when you get home! If you just want a good laugh, stop by to see Joshua & Drake working Curbside in the most ridiculous costumes you’ve ever seen!

I mean.... I don't know. I kinda feel like Manny is showing off for his birthday week. These Tacos are basically life-changing! Our feature for the rest of the week: Our Tequila Borracho Tacos - These tacos kinda remind me of a taco we did a few years back when we did Daxx X Nielsen’s Dialed Tacos. He mixes Carnitas and Chorizo and tops them with Oaxaca cheese. Those are all good things, but it's the Borracho sauce made with tequila & ginger that takes it to the next level. Oh, there is a Radish and Pico garnish as well. Seriously this taco can’t hold any more flavor.YOU KNOW HOW TO GET 'EM:Curbside Pickup Only Through our Website: lucharockford.com By phone: (815) 977-4319We open at 4pm!THANK YOU for loving us through this and eating-locally while we are doing curbside.

NEW! HERE IS HOW MONDAY-KIDS-NIGHTS WORK!We are changing up our Kids-Mondays and we noticed you had some questions! This should clear a lot of it up! IF YOU PICK UP: If you have car seats in the car we’ll give you a $5 Coupon for each car seat and corresponding menu item ordered off the Student Menu.(order one kid item and have one car seat, get $5. Order two kids items and have two car seats, get $10. If your kid is out of a car-seat–– have them ride along and we will get you a coupon too.)You have to order adult entrees too. It’s kinda the same as inside, but we’re assuming there aren’t people driving around randomly with extra car seats in their cars)*YES -- The coupon we give you is to be used at a later date. (Use it for date night!)*YES -- The coupon can be applied to ANYTHING on our menu later. This is just our way of meeting you where you are. We know you are feeding hungry kids at home and wanted to give you a little perk on Mondays! It's a coupon for whatever you would like, as a thank you for feeding the fam with Lucha. Make sense?Like this idea? Will you help us share it?P.S. If you have any other questions feel free to ask when you pick-up. We would be happy to explain it.

You spoke and we LISTENED! You were loud and clear! We changed our mind about being open on Sundays. One thing we’ve learned during the past six months is that we need to be flexible. For now, on Sundays we are open for Curbside Pick-up from 12-7pm! HECK YEAH! Thanks for all of the support and love. Will you share this with a friend?
