“Love their street tacos. The spicy pork tacos are so tasty, and makes the wait in line worthwhile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Excellent tacos. I especially love their spicy pork tacos, as they carve the meat from a spit, much like you would see gyro meat carved. Lines are usually long, and there is a good reason for that, as everyone knows how good their food is. It is on the other side of town from me, so I don't get there as often as I like, but whenever I am on there side of town, I do stop in. Their carne asada, cactus tacos are excellent too. It is a place that you don't go for the ambiance, but instead, are just there for the food.

“Best Taco Shop in Nevada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Tacos are wonderful! One of my favorite taco shops on the planet! I love the carne asada and the small tostaditas. The meat has great cooked-over-wood taste and the guacamole on top is fantastic. Go early and beat the after drinking crowd.

As a tip - remember to tip! Tips usually men fresh grilled veggies will hit your plate and some other extras. There are multiple meats to try here from basics to brains (sesos). The fries are a culinary treat! Enjoy this authentic taco shop!

“You have to try this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

If you're new to real Mexican food, you might be put off by the menu, but just get the steak tacos and you won't go wrong. They were amazing, incredibly authentic. We also got chillie cheese fries. One of the best meals we had in the US.

Stopped in here after a visit to Fremont Street, pretty busy for a Monday night at Midnight.

Not much too say about this place except the tacos are amazing...fresh and yummy.
