Great option on the strip, we went (twice) to the location next to the Encore. Abodada (spicy pork) was excellent and the Mulas and Asada were both very good. The place is crowded for a reason but the lines moved quickly and the prices were...More

This place is not worth the wait. The kitchen was literally smoked out because of a small grill fire. Tons of trashy people. Employees sweeping and mopping around your feed. Very unorganized system of ordering and paying. The food was simply ok.

I have been here twice and have not been disappointed with the food either time. This place is a walk up counter place where you can see your food being prepared. Once the food is on your tray you walk to the cashier to pay....More

This place is of the Strip, but this is the best Tacos in Las Vegas. I love it. Will definitely return.

The tacos were good, but not super filling. Ordering was so confusing, there are three different lines to order different meats. The workers were impatient in explaining how to order. Luckily some locals told us what to do.

It's now almost June 2017 and we are still talking about the food. Seriously considering going back to Vegas just for this restaurant. Cannot recommend enough, well worth the long lines and the wait.

This place sells authentic mexican food, great quesadillas and mexican sodas as well, it is on the strand accross the street from the seven eleven, recommended at night for dinner away from the crowds of the strand.

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!

If you want 2 different proteins, you get it from 1 line and then have to go to the back and wait in the other line? Also, do they put the topping on(if so do you tell them or do they have automatic depending on the type of protein) or do you dress it yourself at a topping bar?

If you want steak that's is it's own line. And the topping are added at your request right in front of you.
The map still shows the location as Las Vegas Blvd (very close to the Encore). Did they move to Charleston Ave? And if so, how far is that from the Encore? Can you still walk there?

There are three locations. The one on the strip does get packed but is worth the wait.
