Tacos El Gordo
Address: 3049 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Status: Open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Friday and Saturday until 4 a.m.

A chef’s favorite that left the Strip returns to its same old location within walking distance of Wynn Las Vegas. Tacos El Gordo is back, baby, with its third Las Vegas location dishing out Tijuana flavors and late-night eats.

This was one of the oddest switcheroos in recent years. Tacos El Gordo closed in December 2014 amid reports of strife between the landlord and restaurant operators.

Tacos, naturally, are the name of the game here for $2 and change. Find cabeza, lengua, sesos, buche, tripa, asada, suadero and adobada as well as a variety of fries in carne asada, vampiro and more.

Quesadillas, sopes, tostadas and mulas also make the cut.

Tacos El Gordo already operates at 1724 E. Charleston Blvd. and 3260 Losee Road in North Las Vegas.
