The sopes were amazing! Carne asada tacos, also delicious. Ordering was a bit confusing for a first timer, but I was happy with what I ended up with. A little Spanish knowledge will be helpful.

Very good and affordable street tacos, TJ Style. Carne asada and AL pastor tacos are delicious. Great place to eat after midnight. Too bad they took it off the strip.

The best tacos I have ever had. I recommend the pork tacos. We went three times because the food was excellent and at $2 a taco it's a steal

if you have ever been to TJ or any small Mexico place you will know what real street tacos should be like and this place is right out of Mexico. Not your regular taco shop or Mexican eatery this place is tacos, tacos, tacos. go with an open mind and try something new

We needed some comfort food and read good reviews about this place. They were right, the wait is long. Being from Chicago, we know tacos. This place was not great. Asada fries were not something we'll order again. The Al Pastor was just ok. The asada tacos were fine. My favorite was the Horchata. We will not be going back.... More

Great authentic tacos at a good price! Variety of meats to choose from. Place is small so if you don't want to wait just take them to go. Very busy every time we went but well worth the wait!

Tacos el Gordon started in TJ then opened up in National City,Ca and now several locations in Vegas. I have eaten at most of them and they're all great. Fast made to order. Don't be afraid to try the cabaza or lingua tacos. Go one time and you will see what everyone is talking about.

Then we shared the asada fries awesome!!! which is steak meat,cheese,guacamole, crema, smothered over fries. Really good horchata too. Lines are long sometimes hard to get a table, but well worth...

My wife is from Mexico and she absolutely loves this place, actually, we all love this place! The tacos here are 100% authentic! They're just like we get them when we're in Mexico. They offer several varieties and they are delicious! This place always seems to be packed as well, so that should tell you something! If you want American... More
