Marvelously delicious street tacos, including the harder to find meats, such as tongue, cheek, head, dry chorizo and the usual suspects. Quesadillas too. Mexican fountain drinks available . Building is an old Carl's Jr. ? You order up front and pay on side. Old part of Vegas in old mall. Plenty parking.

I base all my Mexican food on a really great place in Greeley Colorado called El Cielo's. I had the pork tacos, little to no spice, good flavor, but not up to El Cielo's standards.

Just went and I have to say the food is fresh and delicious. I was confused about the ordering process at first. There are 3 lines and each is for a specific group of menu items. Then you pay and get drinks on the other side of the place. It was super busy, and I imagine it always would be.... More

First time there, and we wanted real mexican food for a reasonable price. We found this by looking for reviews, and we kind of knew how we were supposed to order, but, we needed help, so we asked on of the folks behind the food line and he was super helpful. IN fact all of the staff was extremely helpful,... More

I've eaten here 5 times since Jan 2017. Every time I come to Vegas for business I make it a point to stop here and eat. Most amazing pork tacos I've ever had. Carne Is good, but the pork tacos are mind blowing good. Will be back in May and June for sure.

Had to go get some tacos on Tuesday and after seeing some advertisements on the strip for Taco Tuesday I researched where to go....and Tacos El Gordo came up. Didn't know what to expect so we went around 7-8p and it wasn't too busy. A woman shared with us how it worked and how it worked and where to stand... More

Great freshly cooked fast food. The place was always packed so we decided to give it a go; the tacos are amazing! We were both a bit unsure on how to gauge the menu but we winged it and ended up with pork with the works. A good choice as it was delicious, the service wasn't up to much but... More

Very good tacos, they have multiple selections for meat but you do have to stand in different lines for different meats and the lines are long. Be sure to take a friend so you can order multiples!!
