If you expect to start every Mexican meal with chips, salsa and a margarita, go elsewhere. Small and gritty but clean, this taco shop could be in central LA. Windows to order different types of tacos---carne asada and pork are my favorites---then a cashier to pay and get cups for drinks. Layout is not intuitive but ok. Few dozen tables.... More

Title should be delicious tacos or delicious street tacos. I wish I could get one of each. I had al pastor, chorizo, steak and adobada. The adobada was the best. Nice and spicy. And they have horchata and several other flavored drinks. Yum.

I was attending a conference in the convention center and wanted to mix up the food options. This place was a breath of fresh air - full of locals and awesome food for reasonable prices! I wasn't quite sure how much food to order, but it is easy to go back for more.

Never been to a taco spot like this before. I talked about it to anyone that would listen. The way the food is prepared made for a great experience. I got to watch them make the tortilla. No chicken for the chicken lovers but that was fine with me. Loved how they cut the pork right off the spit and... More

Nice little restaurant. Lots of variety, excellent fresh food. All signs are in Spanish, so be prepared. Had both the chorizo and steak and both were tasty.

Just back from Vegas and we ate here twice for snacks. Had the Asada which is steak tacos with gacumole and the pork both excellent. Ordered same next day. Would go here for a cheap snack or lunch but dont give up your dinner slot in Vegas with so many amazing places to eat! Cheap and cheerful

I've been all over Mexico and the tacos here are the best that I've had. If you want real authentic tacos this is the place.

Best Taco's in Las Vegas! I waited in a long line to try this place, but it was worth it! Great Taco's and Sopa's, made right in front of you by the cook that takes your order, and cooks your food!

This place is in a strip mall full of tattoo parlors and doesnt look like much. But the tacos are otherworldly. There are separate line for different kinds of tacos and we got the el pastor, which was delicious marinated pork with onions, cilantro, lime and secret sauce. They are small. My wife and i got three each and sodas... More
