Never been to a taco spot like this before. I talked about it to anyone that would listen. The way the food is prepared made for a great experience. I got to watch them make the tortilla. No chicken for the chicken lovers but that was fine with me. Loved how they cut the pork right off the spit and... More

Nice little restaurant. Lots of variety, excellent fresh food. All signs are in Spanish, so be prepared. Had both the chorizo and steak and both were tasty.

Just back from Vegas and we ate here twice for snacks. Had the Asada which is steak tacos with gacumole and the pork both excellent. Ordered same next day. Would go here for a cheap snack or lunch but dont give up your dinner slot in Vegas with so many amazing places to eat! Cheap and cheerful

I've been all over Mexico and the tacos here are the best that I've had. If you want real authentic tacos this is the place.

Best Taco's in Las Vegas! I waited in a long line to try this place, but it was worth it! Great Taco's and Sopa's, made right in front of you by the cook that takes your order, and cooks your food!

This place is in a strip mall full of tattoo parlors and doesnt look like much. But the tacos are otherworldly. There are separate line for different kinds of tacos and we got the el pastor, which was delicious marinated pork with onions, cilantro, lime and secret sauce. They are small. My wife and i got three each and sodas... More

We stopped by on our way walking the strip and thoroughly enjoyed the steak carne asada tacos and the spicy pork tacos. Excellent service and the price is very reasonable! We'd definitely stop by again!

We went here for lunch and enjoyed very much the Tacos Al Pastor. The staff is very busy, making a range of tacos and other Mexican delights, so be prepared to stand in line based on what you want to order. I do recommend the Pastor line with the carving happening before your eyes. The tacos are double and fold... More
