Tacos El Gordo on the Strip in Las Vegas. 3049 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV.
Found in a strip mall down the Vegas Strip from the Encore and Wynn properties, you will experience original Mexican tacos. Tacos El Gordo prides themselves on brining you fast and delicious Mexican cuisine straight out of TJ (Tijuana). Real Mexican tacos, not the American version.
Deciding to try a few tacos outside of our comfort zone along with our faves. Al Pastor, Beef brain, Beef tongue, Head, and Steak. Fresh, fantastic. Don’t be afraid to try parts you normally don’t find in an Americanized taco joint. Brain, Tongue (my favorite of the “exotics” lol), Head meat. Trip your trigger, people! get the grilled veg when they ask. A delightful accompaniment.
There are 3 lines for ordering, so find the correct one according to meat filling choice. A busy place, so you know it’s good.
A handful of tables indoors, or covered outdoor sidewalk seating available.
4.5 out of 5 Mexican Hat Dance worthy bites.
