Now this was good.

Would recommend this place to anyone without a doubt. May not look all nice on the outside but you'll forgot all of that once you start eating. I would like to head back to Vegas just for more tacos.

I have been hearing soooo much about this place! I just don't live close so I never thought to make the drive! Well.. I happen to be in the area last week for some training my company has going on! My co workers insisted on taking me here! Yikes! They get so busy to the point that people are literally... More

They are the best tacos I've tasted here in the U.S.! They are identical to the ones that I use to eat in México, so delicious I could just go back to Las Vegas to have one more of their tacos. Very authentic and wonderful flavors! If you're around the area you have to try them! It's a must...

Loved the Al Pastor. Delicious. I would have ate here everyday we were in Vegas if my husband let me. Food was outstanding. So authentic.

This place is definitely a five star restaurant. I love their food and they truly care about their customers. I suggest trying the chicken enchiladas here as they were quite superb. Prices aren't so bad either. I'll definitely be back.

Visiting from London its a shame I won't get to... More

Cheap, fast, delicious. You have to know how to order, but it's not hard. Get in the right line and order the spicy pork!

These are authentic Mexican tacos, I am from Mexico City and this is the flavor and style you find there. They are delicious and because they are the real tacos AL pastor, this is the reason the people are lined up from one end of the building to the other to eat there. If you don't have a taste for...

canteen style restaurant serving some of the best tacos around, a little away from the strip, but if you love tacos, well worth the trip
