Tacos el Gordo: Amazing Tacos in Vegas

Diana Chan April 14, 2014 Four Beakers, Kid Friendly, Las Vegas, Late Night, Mexican


Tacos el Gordo is located at the North end of the Strip. We took a taxi here as we didn’t want to walk from our Hotel. It’s kinda close to Encore and Wynn. They are known for some good tacos.

The taxi dropped us off at the parking lot next door and it was a few seconds of a walk.


The tacos are authentic  and the prices are pretty good.


You go inside and grab the tacos that you would like. Then you pay at the cashier. The staff are pretty quick at putting together orders and the smell is incredible.

When it is busy, there can be quite a long line up.


We grabbed a little bit of everything. You can also get unlimited amount of limes and radishes for free.


Horchata ($1.40) was really sweet and hard to drink. It just seemed like nothing I’ve ever had in Vancouver. It’s probably best to stay away from this.

We ordered at bit of everything. I can’t remember which taco was which, but they were all really good. Taco DeLengua (Beef Tongue) $2.25, Taco De Asada (Steak) $2, Taco De Suadero (Beef Shoulder) $2 and Taco De Adobada (Spicy Pork) $2 were among some of the variations we got.

I would definitely come here again. They have really late hours, so its perfect for night owls or after drinking.
