This taqueria is a must place to visit! Every time I've been to Tacos El Gordo is always packed, which shows how delicious tacos are here! Food is authentic Mexican with all the expected flavor, and the best thing is they are open all day and night so you have something to eat after the club. Their tacos al pastor... More

I am so glad that I went and tried out this place. Line ups are long but they are so so fast at serving. Tacos are made of a corn tortilla and are a little bigger then bite sized but really good! I will definitely be back with more of my friends so they can try it out as well.... More

Wow. This is truly the real deal. I had spicy pork tacos for about $2.25 a piece or so (I wasn't paying too much attention). Incredible flavor. This is now on my must visit list for Vegas.

Ate here my last night in Las Vegas. This is a small walk-up place where it is helpful ( but not necessary) to read and speak Spanish.

There was a little language problem overcome by a helpful customer. I had the cactus taco with guacamole, beans and salad. It was tasty and fresh. It was also very cheap! @ $2.27 good fresh food. Would go again!

Tacos el Gordo offers the best tacos on the Las Vegas Strip. Any time of day you can grab a taco prepared with fresh ingredients at an excellent price. Highly recommend the Adobada and Carne Asada tacos and the fresh radishes at the door.
