Real Mexican tacos

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.

Ended up at El Gordo by looking at recommendations by Trip Advisor. Really tasty tacos. They are $2 each and I ate 6. Had tacos al pastor, tacos carne asada; very tasty. I chickened out and did not try the brain tacos or tripe tacos....You can see patrons really enjoying and savoring their tacos. They basically only have tacos... the... More

We were, as usual, craving tacos and found Tacos el Gordo.. we ate there and..... for the two nights that we stayed in Vegas all we had were tacos from this amazing place. Even our children were asking for more and... More

After living in Vegas for 4 years, I CANNOT believe I never ate here before my last trip to Sin City. My buddy and I were recommended this place (Losee and Cheyenne) by our hotel housekeeping staff. We asked for tacos and Tacos El Gordo delivered! Between the two of us, I bet we put back at least 100 tacos... More
