The tacos were ok nothing to die for. It was extremely packed. There was no where to sit. We had to eat in the 111 degree weather. The price for the tacos are reasonable.

Was told by some visitors from LA to go here. They said better tacos than in LA. While I can't speak for LA, these were some of the best tacos I have ever had and at a reasonable price

Amazing! Plan on spending what may seem more than normal for Mexican food but worth it! There are more than one location, the Strip location is always packed and seating is limited. Authentic food with authentic taste.

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

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!

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