PROS: Great food and variety. Great prices. Good service. CONS: Too many costumers and a very slow line system. We had to make line for 20 to 30 minutes. The place is a bit packed and very old.

I love tex mex food and my friend recommended that I check this place out. They have a huge variety of tacos but make sure you get in the right line because each one is for different types of tacos.

This location near the Wynn/Encore does not exist anymore. My brother and I walked all the down there on 1/1/2015 and all we found was an empty building. They have other locations in Vegas but their strip location is now closed.

Oh my God. Did I just say that? Well, the food is really good. Lots of variety for my husband who wanted some soul food. He ate taco Del lengua, and beef steak tacos.

We walked all the way to the Tacos el Gordo from Bellagio, hoping for a great deal and a great taco today (12/15). Unfortunately, when we got there, the restaurant was no longer there. The Tacos el Gordo sign has been taken down, the Sushi & BBQ sign are still up, but the restaurant is completely empty. We called the... More
