Tacos el Gordo is very good. We had the carne asada (good grilled flavor) spicy pork carnitas ( very good ) and the lengua ( very tender). Place can get very busy. Service is very efficient. Restaurant is very clean.

This place makes their own house made tortillas! We tried a variety of all their tacos; all were excellent but we particularly liked the spicy pork tacos. Reasonable prices, super fresh tacos, great flavours and close to the Wynn/Encore.

These tacos are amazing! They have the BEST asada I have ever eaten. The adobada was delicious too. Not to be missed if you love tacos.

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!
