I had almost all of their tacos over my two visits. The food was very fresh, great portion size and made to order.

I always try to stop here when I am in vegas. Sometimes the lines can be long but they move quickly and it is 10000% worth the wait. My favorite is the Al Pastor tacos and the carne asada quesadilla. The sauces are made everyday and so fresh and amazing. yum yum yum

Maybe because it was Thanksgiving weekend Friday, but we got here at 11:30pm and waited for an hour in line. They have 3 lines and for first timers the lining up situation is confusing as hell; you pick what you want and then line up in the appropriate line. For someone like me who isn't fluent in Spanish, ordering and... More

We read up about this place on Trip Advisor, and hadn't passed it for a few days. We eventually used google maps to find it as its a little off from the main strip. It didn't look the most appealing from the outside, but we went in regardless. What an amazing surprise. The food was INSANE! it was so cheap... More

We love this place and make sure we visit at least once during our stays in Vegas. We usually go more than once. Don't let the long lines scare you, it goes quickly. The Al Pastor tacos are delish. Try the campechana fries. They're delish. Half order is plenty for 2-3 people tho.

These are tied for the best tacos I've ever had. I love authentic Mexican food and these are as good or better than any I've had in the U.S. or Mexico. So glad I came here.

Tacos for $2.25/taco and they are amaze balls. Watch for long lines as they are very busy. Could have used a better system for ordering as a none regular it was a bit confusing at first. Add pineapple to pork tacos.

First: I enjoyed my tacos. And it's not your typical taco shop: here you stand in one of three lines (depending on what kind of taco you want). Then you go to the cash register to pay. If the tacos you wanted were from different lines, well, you wait in both lines. But, as I said, the food was good.

I live in So Cal and had tacos all over including and Tacos el Gordo is one of the best street tacos I've ever had. They have lengua, cabeza and all these other less common meats. They're all great. I love to lengua.
