well worth the walk past the Venetian and The Wynn/Encore. Freshly prepared meats, piled on top of their wonderful little street tortlillas make this a must stop every trip to Vegas.

I had heard good things about the tacos here and everytime I went by there was a long line, that's usually a good sign. I finally decided to do the wait and after about 20 minutes it was my turn at the open kitchen counter. The "show" was better than the food. The guys making the carne asada tacos were... More

Taste the real flavor of mexican Tacos, no fancy place with exotic combinations just the real flavor. Expect huge lines , the place is crowded all the time but it is definately worth it!

Went to the one on Las Vegas Blvd on a Thursday at 10:00 a:m and it was already crowed. We both had 3 tacos my wife was steak and I had the pork. Cheap meal and good service. Their really was no confusion about the ordering system, just read the signs.

I was walking by and wanted a snack. My wife and I each ordered a beef taco. Yum! I have eaten here before. Very friendly staff and EXCELLENT food. This place is always very busy. Located near Encore on the Strip. I shall return.

The Tacos el Gordo we ate at is on the Strip; just south of our hotel, the Hilton Grand Vacation Club. My tip is to go early. We got there @ 11:30, by the time we left (about 1 hr. later) the line was out the door! So when you get there, have someone in your party stake out a... More

I ordered a couple of tacos de asada, and a Tostadas, also with steak. It was kind of busy and I was hungry, so I didn't venture into the other lines today. I will be back for lunch tomorrow and get something different. Probably the tongue and the cheek. The taco was the meat, salsa, cilantro, and fresh avocado. It... More

13 of us showed up and ordered a lot of variety, based on a friend's recommendation. The food was great!! My favorite was chorizo and the beef tongue. Staff works very hard to keep up with the constant long line. You will find tourists and locals alike eating here. The buffet sign outside threw me for a loop but I'm... More
