We heard about this place from some locals and stopped to get a couple of Tacos between breakfast and dinner in lieu of a full lunch. Didn't really know how to order, mostly spanish signs. We finally got in the right line and order 2 tacos each. They are a bit small, but surprisingly tasty. Not Taco Bell that's for... More

Personally, I am not fan of a taco especially the veggie taco, but, I have a friend James, brought me here and I observe the good service of the staff and pleasing surroundings. Then my friend order a taco and he convinced me to try one so i give it a try, then after that I said to myself it... More

You can see freshly made tortillas. They cook the food for you in front of you. Everything is super quick.

Staying at Encore made this an easy 1-block walk and what a huge difference that 1-block makes. This is an honest-to-goodness taqueria with wonderful inexpensive food that feels like it is a thousand miles from the Strip. No pretense, glitter or glam - just great food and great folks. Always a good sign when you walk into a taqueria and... More

Had heard and read rave reviews of this place. It was good, but just didn't rock my world like so many others seemed to think. Give it about a C+ at best.

Not all tacos are created equal. Some are great, but these are better than that. The building looks ordinary, maybe a bit disappointing, not much in the way of environment, but after you get your order, it won't matter. The food is amazing. I went in and found myself the only Anglo in the place. That was a good indicator... More

I'm from Texas, and these tacos are easily on par with anything I get near the border. LOVED them and the salsas, fantastico! Thankfully I am somewhat bilingual, as some of the staff seemed to not speak fluent English

we ordered 15 steak tacos all the way. They were delicious. Tacos el Gordo is fast and pleasant. A great little place to stop and enjoy. Always busy.

We drove past this place the first time, honestly the outside and location made us a little nervous that it was just random fast food. SO GLAD WE DECIDED TO TRY IT!! These were the best tacos we've had in years!! I prefer them on the flour tortillas and the Asada tacos were both mine and my husbands favorites! We... More

This is an absolute "CAN'T MISS" when we visit Vegas! The food is excellent! The staff are all helpful and kind--some speak english, some do not. The restaurant is always clean and busy. My best tip is go with a friend, one of you order, the other grab a seat! Do not be discouraged when you see that there is... More
