In a town where money is the name of the game, it's hard to find cheap places to eat. Luckily there is Tacos El Gordo. This is a fast-food chain operating out of Las Vegas. For those who love affordable Mexican food, this is the place to come. Located on the North end of the Las Vegas Strip, Tacos El Gordo offers many types of Mexican dishes, but the tacos are the cheapest.
The tacos are made from corn or flour. They have all types of meat, but pork tacos are what they're known for. For under $10, you can have a good meal. In addition to tacos, you will also find Latin cuisine classics such as burritos, quesadillas, and fajitas on the menu.
Caution: While the food is cheap and delicious, the food portions are very small. The tacos are appetizer size and unlikely to satisfy a famished adult. The other downside to this place is the long line ups; an average wait can be 15-30 minutes if you come during peak times.
If you have late-night cravings for Mexican food, then just drive up to Tacos El Gordo- it's not a fancy place, but it does offer cheap Mexican food. The service is fast once you order it. The restaurant does have a drive-through, but this also has a 5-10 min line up on most days.
