Hecho en Vegas, the Mexican restaurant at the MGM Grand, closes permanently in early November. The restaurant located in the resort’s District close to the pools originally opened in December 2013 with dishes from the Flores family, who run El Charro Cafés and Sir Veza’s Taco Garage in the Tucson area.
The brightly colored cantina features a large mural in the middle of the room and a geometric art creation that reaches to the ceiling. An indoor patio at the front offers prime views of those getting off the Monorail or heading to the MGM Grand Garden Arena. When the Flores family influenced the menu, diners could find a chimichanga that USA Today named one of the best plates in America with guacamole, pico de charro, red and green enchilada sauce, sour cream, queso casero, and arroz y frijoles. Other dishes found at the restaurant include tamales with chicken, beef, or corn and a taco salad. More than 100 tequilas line the walls.
MGM Resorts did not tease what could take the place of the 10,000-square-foot restaurant.
Hecho en Vegas remains open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
