Food awesome. Friendly crowd. Why make customers stand in line for 30 minutes and only order certain items from each line?

if you are in a hurry and expect fast take out Mexican food do not go here during lunch or dinner. however, if you don't mind the wait the tacos are excellent. I have been here several times and will continue to go back.

It's very interesting Tacos el Gordo has its origins in Tijuana Mexico,. as an expansion to the US the Franchise develop a different taste from its original style in my opinion due to Regulatory standards that in the US cannot be allow... in other words, it has to be cook in the street to taste good. :)

Tacos are great. Tortillas are made on site. Second time here and still do not get the different lines for the different types of tacos. Asada different line. Buche different line. Al pastor different line. Last time there were three of us, three different lines. This time only two, with me saving a table. Hubby stood in asada line, but... More

this place is good but not great in my opinion. The tacos are definitely good but not as cheap as many other places charge for street tacos. I like going here and recommend it for sure especially the carne asana fries!!

We all had adobada fries after a drunken evening. Delicious! I don't recommend the large adobada fries, small is a good big portion. Unless you're sharing of course. Good, fast Mexican food. It's a local popular place.

This place was wonderful. Very authentic Mexican "fast food." The carne asada tacos were great! I didn't get very adventurous but I did sample the tongue tacos and was surprised by how good they were too. It got pretty busy around dinner-time, but well-worth the wait! Very affordable too. I'll be interested to try their other locations.
