You'll hate yourself if you pass up a meal here

Not sure what to say other than these aren't just the best tacos in Las Vegas, they're the best in the world. Lengua, Tripa, Cabeza, Adobada, Azteca... Doesn't really matter. The. Best. Taco. You'll.

The tacos are good here. They have many cuts of meats here. My favorite were the alpastor or adobada tacos. The system of ordering tacos seems efficient but if you want let's say lengua tacos you have to jump to another line holding your tray of alpastor tacos while they get cold. It's crowded so get ready to wait for... More

My friend told me about this place, and said it's also an experience, not even fast food, but authentic. The place was filled when we arrived, long line ups, but it went quickly. Luckily she told me about the different lineups for the different tacos. Again, it was nice to know there were no peanuts or nuts in any of... More

My co-worker who loves this place has wanted me to go here for some time now. Sharing the same birthday I figured why not, let’s go. I’ll admit I had mixed feelings going in. I checked out the menu and for a guy who’s use to the American Fast Food Mexican places (you know them) I felt a bit out... More

A friend of mine told me about this place and their BOMB tacos. My girlfriend and I decided to check it out. OH heck no!, we thought as we opened the door to a packed converted fast food joint. There were people everywhere...sitting, standing...everywhere! We decided to stick it out and waited in a line. Half way to the counter... More

This is the real deal....as if you was eating at a street corner in Tijuana. They are open until 4am for the late casino crowd. It will be busy at All times....long lines but well worth the wait. There are separate line for the different types of tacos. I have eaten all of them and they are authentic in every... More

Agree with the prior reviewer that the location isn't the best but the food is fabulous. According to the locals they are busy until 3am. They have a shuttle bus and will take you home if you are on the strip. Standing room only. The Sopes were great and I can't get those at home. Will come again if I... More

They used to be located on the strip but moved to a different location. It is a bit of a drive and in a sketchy part of town (my husband joked that the rims were going to be missing off his car when we came out) but the food is absolutely amazing!!!!! My girlfriend and I discovered this a few... More
