San Diego’s Tacos El Gordo, an extremely popular Las Vegas destination since 2010, is making its first move south of the Strip and plans a stand-alone restaurant within walking distance of Town Square.

The taco specialist recently filed paperwork to build the fourth local outpost, replacing a former vehicle storage site at 2550 W. Sunset Road at the intersection with Windy Road and facing Texas de Brazil across the street.

While the location won’t include a drive-thru, the 7,497-square-foot, built-from-scratch venue will have an outdoor dining patio and plenty of parking.

The restaurant plans to serve the same Tijuana-inspired menu, highlighted by freshly prepared guacamole and salsas, plus bold-flavored tacos, mulas, tostadas, sopes, and quesadllas. Tacos El Gordo did not provide an estimated debut date or future hours.

On the Strip, Tacos El Gordo continues its role as a legendary late-night haunt and also operates on Losee Road in North Las Vegas and downtown on Charleston Boulevard.
