Once again I found myself at Tacos El Gordo for lunch. It’s been roughly a twice weekly ritual for me since two close friends swore it was the best adobada they’ve had in Las Vegas.

As usual I ordered a few al pastor tacos, finished them and came to a hard conclusion.  My friends were absolutely right.  Of all the named and nameless taco shacks I’ve been to, Tacos El Gordo just nails the tiny pastor experience so perfectly.


Pork cut right off the spit onto corn tortillas with cilantro, onion and a guacamole sauce. Finally, a slice of pineapple, nicked from the tippy top of the rotisserie, crowns the whole wonderful canoe of joy.

At $2 a pop you can get three tacos and a coke for under $8. Value you can taste is the only value that matters.

When in Vegas you’ll find them at:

3049 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109

(702) 641-8228

They also have locations in Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, CA.   If you stop by tell them Port of Entrée sent you!
