You know the tacos are good when you only see Mexicans eating there. I ordered the beef brain, beef head, and cow tongue tacos. The cow tongue tacos here were hands-down the BEST tacos lenguas I've ever had in my life. It was too spicy for me (you can ask them not to put the sauce on), and I still thought they were super delicious. I love cow tongue tacos, and these were really the best ever. Tacos cost around $2 each, with the exception of the tacos lenguas, which were $2.25 each. Worth it! My brothers got the spicy pork tacos, and they said those were the best they ever ate. They also have a bunch of other things like cow tongue fries, sopas, and other traditional Mexican foods, but I'll save that for next time. Yep, go to this place. Cheap good food, and it's enough to satisfy your stomach.Recommended for:

Did you know you can visit Mexico right smack in the heart of Vegas? Better brush up on that Spanish, else you might be in for quite a bit of "I want that" pointing to the workers who barely speak a lick of English.
Most people come here for the spicy adobada, but my favorite is the lengua tacos--the fattest, juiciest lengua tacos ever. You can also request grilled jalapenos and green onions at no charge.
The set up is a bit confusing if you've never been. There's a separate line for each type of meat. The lengua/cabeza is all the way to the right, the adobada is the long line you see, and the asada is to the left. You order, then bring your order to the cashiers to pay.
Open until the wee hours because you know you're going to need drunk food in Vegas.Recommended for:

So you've made it rain at the Wynn and/or Encore, and now you're starvin' like Marvin (who is this guy, anyway?). Now what? Well, you have the choice of 1) spending more money on food at the restaurants inside either hotel or 2) head a little further down The Strip and get your taco here. I'm sure the latter is a much better choice. My friends never tuned me into this until now (thanks a lot, guys! *sarcasm*). Made sure I made the most out of my first visit and got 3 tacos: lengua, asada, and adobada. All of them paired up with a large Horchata made it the best late night grub I've had in Vegas. Ever. It's probably saying a mouthful (and no, I kept classy and had those tacos one at a time), but it's true.Recommended for:
