We were in the area so decided to give Tacos El Gordo a try, after reading so many positive reviews. What a neat place! Carne adobada tacos were excellent and tasted just like in Mexico. They are on the small side so plan to buy two or three per person for a meal, and grab plenty of napkins because they... More

Vile. Yelp steered me wrong. El Taco Gordo is disgusting. You show up and there's a giant flat-top griddle. You have to go to a different station for each meat you order. (Annoying.) My asada ("steak," in theory) tasted like little gristly chicklets of shoe leather. I spent the rest of my night cradling my stomach in agony. AVOID AT... More

6 tacos in one sitting. I dream about them almost daily since June. Need I say more? Just go there!! The line for the beef tacos is shorter, just walk straight through the door and skip the massive line. ;)

It's almost like being in a taqueria in Mexico. Their food is amazing and has such flavor! I always stop here when I visit Vegas, it's a must.

I read reviews on TA about this place and made sure we tried their tacos. Food was ok but nothing spectacular. Unfortunately, we had to wait 30 minutes on the line at 12am...wasn't worth the wait IMO.

This place is exceptionally popular, especially late night. The food is excellent and inexpensive, but prepare to be in a big crowd especially at night. Worth the experience, for sure!

My husband and I have been to Tacos el Gordo twice in 2014. It is a great taco joint. Ordering can be confusing since there are three different lines for different kinds of tacos. The staff is super friendly and the food is really inexpensive. The food is really, really good, we just love it! Lunch for two people can... More
