Tacos el Gordo on the Strip is one the most well-known stops for cheap eats in Las Vegas, perfect for a late-night snack after a night out. This small chain of restaurants is only found in California and Nevada and attracts devoted fans, and one taste of their Tijuana-style tacos explains why. There's nothing fancy here: it's a walk-up counter where you order and pick up at the same place. The focus isn't on décor--it's on the food. You could play it safe and order the carne asada or the adobada, but you can also get tripe (tripa), brains (sesos) and cactus on their handmade corn tortillas. No matter what kind of tacos you order, you'll enjoy food made from quality ingredients. Guacamole and salsa are made daily from scratch.
- Best Value: "Lines at Tacos el Gordo depend on the type of meat you're ordering, so be sure you're in the right line for the food you want."
- Mexican: "Tacos el Gordo on the Strip is just a short drive from the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's close enough to the LVCC that convention goers could stop in for an inexpensive meal."
