Got the steak tacos and veggie quesadilla, both were very good. The only negative is that it's super confusing for a newbie. Apparently they have separate lines for different foods, but there are no signs. Also, there are no descriptions of what the different foods are, so I just stuck with the steak tacos.

It's a little confusing at first (you order from different stations depending on what you want) but the staff is friendly and the food scrumptious at any hour. A nice change from long buffet lines for expensive, stale food.

These are the best, freshest tacos I have had in Las Vegas. It is ALWAYS packed in here and the food is ALWAYS good.

I HIGHLY recommend:
1. Carne Asada quesadilla - PACKED with steak on a soft thick tortilla with lots cheese, pico and guacamole.

2. Buche tacos - pork stomach that has been simmered for HOURS until tender and highly seasoned.

3. Spicy pork taco - cut right off the spit fresh for you. Excellent

4. Tongue taco - seasoned and tender.

I personally think these are BETTER than most of the tacos I had in Tijuana. But the sign here says they are from Tijuana so I must have missed them. Hard to remember anything in Tijuana actually. I could have ate here and just forgot from all the tequila I drank while I was there. Who knows?!

This place is open TWENTY FOUR HOURS!!!

Fantastic and authentic Mexican food that's dirt cheap! Tastes awesome! We has the veggie quesadillas and they were fresh, filling and plentiful. There's no chicken we saw on the menu curiously but all types of beef and pork are available. Didn't have the courage to try the beef brain but maybe next time. Staff there are great with Mexican food newbies like us and were very patient and friendly in helping us figure out what to have. Highly recommended!

Great tacos of ALL sorts of meat. Extremely friendly staff, great value, and delicious food. They had a great variety of meats that are not common such as sesos, cabeza, lengua, tripe, etc. Also they have delicious tropical fruit drinks that are not commonly available.
