Forget about those fast food chains that offer "Mexican" food. If you really want to try authentic Mexican tacos head to this place. The line might scare you a bit but believe me when I tell you IT IS WORTH the wait. Try los Tacos...More

It is always a pain to find a place to eat in Vegas.... we wanted something different from the traditional restaurants from the strip. And we found this place. Best meal i had in Vegas. Simple and good, feels like you are in Mexico!

These tacos are the truth. This place stays super busy but the wait time is still almost non-existent. I did have a short wait on my fries but it's worth it

Finding cheap eats on the strip isn't what it used to be. The place is no frills but the service is good and probably some of the best street tacos that I have ever eaten.

I could eat there every day and be happy. Well priced and some of the best tacos I've had. At 2.20 a taco it's a great deal because the quality is perfect.

This was the best quick meal. Authentic, perfect tacos. We were there at lunchtime, so a bit of a line, but was well worth any wait. A must do while in Vegas!

The food is really good, but the only down side was having to wait in the long line at the time of the visit it was extremely busy. But once we got our food the wait was well worth it. Would definitely recommend this place.

Tacos (etc) have been okay but not worth waiting over 1 hour. Furthermore 26$ for two people are not that cheap of you are still hungry afterwards.

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!
