Nothing hidden about this place but there’s a reason why! Amazing tacos for a really fair price. This location is further from the strip but still had a big crowd, however it was really fast and easy to navigate. You can tell everything is fresh and authentic before you even take the first bite. Must try place while in Vegas, don’t even question the decision.
The best tacos you will not find a better pastor taco anywhere else. The guy making the food was very fast and a great cook. Wait time was over one hour but it was very very good. They have a fridge with pre packed limes would highly recommend.
As much as I wanted to try a different Vegas restaurant, I knew I just had to have Tacos El Gordo again. I settled for trying a different location. This place is funky. It appears to be in an old gas station. Parking is hodgepodge, including all around the old pumps. The building is quirky and old, definitely not spotless either. The staff don’t say much but are quick. None of that matters, the only thing that matters here are the delicious and cheap tacos! They have different lines for different meat options. They offer “Azteca” style for the same price, which also come with grilled cactus. Everything is delicious. They have salsas available which aren’t even needed. Everything here rocks.
If I was writing my review just based on the quality of the food, it would be five stars all day long. If I were writing my review based on the cost/value of the food, it would be closer to two stars. My family loves this chain. This was our first visit to this location but I can tell you that if they did not charge $3.43 for every tiny taco you order, We would eat there 10 times more often than we do. By my calculation, I pay $1.14 per bite of food i take here and unless they're using wagyu beef or its pork equivalent, that is more than is reasonable from a cost perspective. Considering the fact that their location is in a defunct gas station/mini mart, we're not really paying for ambiance or presentation either. The service is fine, though not overly friendly. if you are looking for some of the best tacos around and are not bothered by the cost, this place is going to be one of your favorites. I can afford their overpriced tacos so I indulge occasionally but i was also raised by older parents who were very frugal so I have purchased my own vertical rotisserie and have started making my own, which are also very tasty. it doesn't matter how much money I make, I can't get my mom's financial tutelage out of my head.
AMAZING!!!!! That should sum it up. You feel like you are in the heart of Mexico, enjoying an incredible meal. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Absolutely loved it!!!! First but not the last time here!!!!
