$2.00 Spicy beef tacos is all you need to know. Ask for a slice of pineapple on top. Jalapeños and onions on the side for free by request. Yummy!!!

Don't miss this if you are in the area. It can be a little confusing, hectic, and busy so patience is needed. If you aren't a big Mexican food fan, try the first line on the left and get the Al Pastor, which is a pork taco.

Very authentic. Those homemade tortillas were fabulous. I ordered the tacos al pastor and carne asada, two of each. I could have order four more, they were that good. I went around lunch time on a Friday and it was crowded but manageable. Plus, it's great value. I'll return next time I'm in Vegas.

Went to Tacos El Gordo after all the hype…indeed all the talk was legit. The food here is fantastic. Downfall is that reviews such as this has gotten the word out and the line was 30 minutes long. Notice I still rate it high as the wait was well worth it!

For $2 a pop you can't beat Tacos el Gordo. Make sure you get in the right line dependent on which taco you want. My favourite was most definitely the Spicy Pork taco with 'everything'. Loved it!!!

If you want real, Mexican tacos, look no further. These are tacos you get in downtown LA, not americanized-tacos...lines are really big around 2AM however.

Loved the al pastor tacos. They were fresh, spicy, and delicious. Steak tacos were a little chewy but still good. Great mexican food for the price. Will definitely return on next visit to Vegas.

WONDERFUL!! We couldn't get enough. We ate there 3 times during our 6 days in Vegas. It can be confusing. There is a line for the items you want to order then you pay at the cashier. Luckily some regulars were explaining the process to their friend and we over heard, we happened to be in the right line. Tacos... More

Great off the beaten path taco experience. Nothing fancy or pretentious. Very local, authentic, and delicious. Would suggest coming off hours to not wait in line. Took about 45 minutes to order but was worth the wait. You stand in a particular line depending on the type of taco you would like to order. Seating outside can take some patience... More

We loved this place! We ate here two days in a row. It was really good. We have tried three of their other restaurant locations and this one hit the jackpot with us. We had the Al Pastor tacos and mulitas. Carne asada was awesome also cooked with mesquite.
