Bomb Tacos

Located in the same plaza as Other Mama, The Rice Shop, Zaytoon and others, Bomb Tacos took over the space formerly occupied by a couple other taco shops. But this is nothing like its predecessors. It’s run by Robert Solano, formerly of Mundo, and he brings a level of sophistication to the food that other… Continue reading Bomb Tacos

Braddah’s Island Style

***Update: business closed*** As other reviewers have mentioned on other sites, this is the Hawaiian version of Chipotle. No need to re-invent the wheel and create a different concept for ordering when it’s effective. After eating here a couple times, I have to say that I prefer this place to Chipotle. I love the island… Continue reading Braddah’s Island Style

Pepe’s Tacos

Pepe’s, which recently opened in the former Baja Fresh spot near the corner of Rainbow and Flamingo, is home to below average tacos at best. Each one was about $1.79. You might think that’s a good price until you try them. The carne asada was bland, dry and the quality of the meat was poor.… Continue reading Pepe’s Tacos

Muddy River Bar and Grill

Looking for a place to eat lunch before heading to Roos-N-More (a great, tiny, non-profit zoo an hour north of Las Vegas) we came across one of the only restaurants in the Moapa area. The place was nice and clean inside and wasn’t busy early afternoon on a Saturday. The shredded beef tacos ($6.99) were… Continue reading Muddy River Bar and Grill

Yayo Taco

Yeah, this place was featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives recently and I’m sure business has spiked because of it. Located across from the UNLV campus, it’s been a hit with students and faculty for some time. Their tacos are their main draw. It’s a diverse and ambitious menu featuring 15 kinds of tacos,… Continue reading Yayo Taco


Located in the Oxbow Public Market. C Casa serves up gourmet tacos among other things. We got two skirt steak tacos ($5.75 each) with grilled onions, blue cheese, avocado, jalapeños, garlic aioli, cilantro and salsa picante. Loved the tanginess of the blue cheese with the sweetness of the onions and avocado and the savoriness of… Continue reading C CASA

El Gordito

I’ve driven by this little Mexican market a million times and finally decided to give it a try. It looks small from the outside and feels even smaller inside. They packed everything in pretty tight. I came here to buy some pre-seasoned carne asada for some homemade tacos. The quality of the stuff I got… Continue reading El Gordito

Sloppi Jo’s Roving Eatery

I finally tracked down Sloppi Jo’s for lunch in the southwest. The pork tacos (2 for $6) were unreal. They had a distinct “New Mexico” taste with the red chile spiced pork — a completely different  flavor than any Mexican street style taco. Tender, well seasoned, with a touch of heat, these pork tacos with… Continue reading Sloppi Jo’s Roving Eatery

Tacos El Gordo

It’s easy to fall in love with Tacos El Gordo… the smell of grilled carne asada as you walk from the parking lot to the door, the hole-in-the-wall atmosphere, the amazing tacos… Yeah, I’ve fallen for this place just like many others have. Even though part of my heart still belongs to my first (taco)… Continue reading Tacos El Gordo


I finally had the chance to check out this food stand. I ordered one regular beef taco and a Korean BBQ beef taco. There was no line and I only had to wait a few minutes before my order was up. I like cabbage on my tacos, but there was a ridiculously large heap hiding… Continue reading 9091

Los Tacos

I stopped in for lunch and the place was filled with white, car-salesman-looking guys. That should tell you something right there. The food itself isn’t that bad (at least some of it), but it’s pricey. $3.00 for a taco. If you want sour cream or guacamole that’s going to cost you extra. I ordered one… Continue reading Los Tacos

Tacos Mexico

— Originally posted on Yelp on 7/2/10 — Another quick lunch led me to this place. I headed straight to the drive-thru and ordered their lunch special: 4 tacos, a drink, and fries for $4.99. They get points for being quick (only waited about 5 minutes) and friendly. Unfortunately, that’s about the best thing about… Continue reading Tacos Mexico
