This is a place not to miss in Vegas! We tried a variety of items and not to be missed is the pastor and mula de carnitas. There are 3 different lines for different items so keep that in mind when ordering. We went in...off-peak meal hours and the line for the pastor was still pretty long while the other lines were empty. Be prepared to wait as they complete drive through orders as well. They speak English but addressed me in Spanish. Seating is limited but clears fast.More

I waited over an hour in the drive thru. People leaving reviews are saying "worth the wait" and "rate the food, not the wait," but there is no excuse to wait for 6 tacos from 11 pm to 12:30 am. Absolutely pathetic no matter how...good they are.More

Waited almost 2 hours for a cold greaseless steak taco. Not worth the hype. I definitely would not recommend or eat here again.

The tacos are delicious. They make their own tortillas and are constantly tending to the meats. They have different lines for different tacos. We went in the evening and the place was packed. It took over 30 minutes to get the food. The good thing...is once you order your food comes quickly. No veggie options.More

Visited for lunch and had to wait a very long time in order to get our food. It was good but as usual small so if you need a belly full, buy at least 3 tacos!

From the reviews we expected to be knocked out by the tacos at Tacos El Gordo - we were not. We found the carne asada flavorless and the chorizo dry. The cabeza was best - suadero was soggy. Al pastor ok. The experience was fun...but have had better street tacos elsewhere.More

This place has the best tacos I have ever eaten. I’m from Texas and we have taco food trucks all over and these are so Amazing. When you are in Vegas you have to come this place. You will not regret it.

This is a must do every time I’m in Las Vegas. Best tacos anywhere and the constant line out the front door proves it.

Tacos el Gordo is a great cheap eat in Vegas. Authentic delicious Mexican food. We visited here in April 2019 and will definitely revisit whenever we are back in Vegas.

Taco Tuesday was a hit here. Great Tacos, quick service, and nothing to complain about! Drive thru, to-go, or limited dine in available.

I can’t recall if beer was sold there. Def not on draught anyway. They do these non alcoholic drinks that are half way between a milkshake and soda. The orange one taste like a super split. Surprising delicious.

I Seriously doubt they use soy sauce in Mexican food. I have a gluten allergy and this food was fine for me.
