Wow, the food was superb. The tacos al pastor are what I had ... 3 to start and then 3 more because they were so good. There is a wide selection of authentic Mexican cuisine. It's like going to a taco stand in Mexico, but it's in Las Vegas. When you get tired of the high prices or all you... More

Two colleagues and I walked from the Las Vegas Convention Center (8/10 mile) on a weekday for lunch to this little place after wanting something unique and local. It did not disappoint! I got three different tacos (asada, adovada, and beef belly) which were all very unique. My favorite was the asada, but I'm glad I tried the others. In... More

Finally decided to try this place after reading all the hype. We went on a Sat. night and it was a zoo!! There were at least 50 people in the most popular line! I don't know what I was thinking but we were in line for 2 hours!! The food here is definitely pretty good. I don't know if it's... More

I wanted to try the best tacos in town and this place did not disappoint. The line up was outside the door when we arrived. It did move pretty quickly. Ordering was a nightmare as they need a better system, we ended ordering everything on the menu. Everything was delicious. Happy that we came to try this place out. I... More

What a great place to sample the different styles of tacos, they have it all, so get adventurous and go for it. it is a busy place and hard to get a table, so take a friend to order for you as you find a table. they just sell tacos and drinks and also have a salsa bar with fresh... More

Decided to try after reading positive reviews. Not in the best part of town, but if the food is great that doesn't matter. Pulled up to a crowded parking lot and restaurant. This sparked great expectations. Walked in and found it to be a little hectic. It takes a little while to figure out the system which is actually simple... More

Best tacos ever. Quesadillas were amazing. We had a convention at Circus Circus and had an hour for lunch. We decided to walk to Tacos el Gordo, which is about .5 miles away... and we're glad that we did. We got asada and chorizo quesadillas and spicy pork and tripe tacos. Wolfed it down in less than 5 minutes. The... More

In and out and done! the Adobo taco (spicy pork) not hot at all, was the bomb!!! If you have an appetite have 3-4 tacos, they don't have rice and beans only fries but the tacos are awesome!!
