Tacos El Gordo [Las Vegas]

Found this place when I was looking for late night eats when doing my research for our trips and there's but positive reviews. We happened to pass by when exploring the North side of the strip (older part) and decided to give it a try. Taco El Gordo (@TacosElGordoBC) is probably the best cheap eat on the Strip, just North of Wynn Hotel, they serve authentic fresh tacos with all kinds of fillings.

At $2 a taco, you can't go wrong and this was the place we miss the most after leaving Vegas. Wish we got the chance to go back a 2nd time before we leave.
Why don't we have something like that in Toronto? 

Basically like a fast food place but here you order first and then go to the cashier to pay. There's minimal seating inside but they have quite a big section of seating outside.

Seeing this totally reminded me of street food in Hong Kong where a big pot of internal goodness is simmering and ready to be chop/cut...

Taco De Buche (Pork Stomach)

Taco De Adobada (Spicy Pork)
This was highly recommended by every review I read, so that was the first on my list to order and it was very flavorful although I thought it was tiny bit on the dry side.

Taco De Lengua (Beef Tongue)

Taco De Sesos (Beef Brain)

Taco De Tripa (Tripe)

Verdict :
Love all 5 tacos we had and can't beat that $2 price tag.
This will be on top of my list if I am in Vegas again.
Cheap Satisfying and yummy eats
