This place is very good and authentic. We got the tacos of carne asada. It was so good. The steak fries are very good and it is worth the $$$. Won’t be disappointed.

This place hands down has the best tasting and authentic tacos I've ever had. The tacos de buche were my absolute favorite. We ate here EVERYDAY for four days while in Vegas. I wish there was one in Atlanta!

A little spot without pretentiousness. Tacos were simply excellents especially the spicy pork. Reasonable prices. If you love traditional tacos, this is a place to try.

Very good tacos and Mexican food. It is a little confusing on the ordering as it is in Spanish. You get in the line for which tacos you want. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Mexican food.

I Seriously doubt they use soy sauce in Mexican food. I have a gluten allergy and this food was fine for me.

Let me correct that last piece of advice. I confused the restaurant with a different one. Sorry. Tacos el Gordo doesn't have fish. Vegetarian would be near impossible here. Sorry for the confusion!
