You can’t go wrong with a visit to the best taqueria this side of County Road 105.

In this week’s edition of “What’s for lunch?” northforker recommends a trio of tacos from Lucharitos in Greenport, the brightly colored taco shop that celebrates lucha libre (Mexican wrestling).

We chose a pina pork ($3.25), a pina pollo ($3.50) and a beer-battered shrimp taco ($4.25). All tacos are served with lettuce, cheese and salsa fresca in either a hard or soft shell. Add guacamole and sour cream for $.50.

Of course, Lucharitos also offers other Mexican food favorites like burritos, nachos, a salad bowl and an extensive margarita menu.

We’ve never had a bad meal there and don’t anyone else who has either.

And if you are so inspired, here is a guide to becoming a Mexican wrestler.
