I was in Vegas and I really wanted to eat good tacos. This place is an excellent choice and the "chiles toreados" is a plus .

In a place where it's rare to find decent Mexican food (being a chef too) we are always surprised about the poor quality of the offerings here, plus if you add the 33% Mexican population, it's incredible! But for a little taste of home (unless you know how to cook and make it at home like we do) this is... More

Semi-organized chaos just like Mexico. My wife is from Mexico City and we go here very time we are in LV. They got rid of the outdoor seating since last trip which is too bad as is always crowded. Need to know there are different lines for different kinds of tacos, before they let you mix it up but now... More

Fabulous for a quick authentic bite. Everything tried was good. A little busy at times, but you cannot miss the new strip location with all the lights and whatnot

Priced right, nice staff, food is good. Crowded, air conditioning needs improvement. A hidden gem! Could be better ventilated

It took us a few minutes of standing in the wrong line to figure out how to order here but don't be intimidated it is worth the wait! There are three small signs that indicate what to order at each station. We went simple with the delicious, handmade, real tacos but seeing what everyone else ordered I don't think you... More

What a fun place to eat! Find the line that serves what you want and then watch.... the speed at which they prepare things is incredible. Delicious, fresh and lots of choice. Most tacos here were around $2 each. Try a few different ones for sure and grab lots of napkins!

Coming from Spain, I found this place a real Taqueria with the authentic flavor of the mexican tacos. The only problem, was that the place is small and the quantity of people trying to taste this great tacos, very high.

Some locals suggested we go here for authentic tacos. A couple of friendly locals in the queue helped us pick some tasty food including campechana fries which are amazing! Shame we don't have this in the UK.
