If you love Mexican food, Las Vegas is the place to be! The valley is home to innumerable fast food options, including tacos. This guide will focus on favorite taco shops across the Las Vegas valley.

A Guide to Taco Shops in Las Vegas

Before we break down the best taco shops by each section of the Vegas valley, let’s talk about two ubiquitous casual Mexican places with hot and tasty food ready to go, with many open 24 hours a day: Don Tortaco and Roberto’s Taco Shop.

Chances are, if you have driven down any major street anywhere in town, you have driven by a Roberto’s or a Tortaco. And don’t let the fact they are a chain operation keep you away – in our experience, these places are well-run, clean, and, thanks to all the competition, offer affordable prices.

Many even offer salsa bars with an extensive selection and sometimes even spiced carrots!

The Strip

If you visit the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll have no problems satisfying your taco cravings with our below guide. Tacos El Gordo and Tacos El Pastor highlight the options on the Strip, but are certainly not the only options.

Reference our “Best Taco Shops on the Las Vegas Strip” article for a full list.

Southwest Vegas

Bajamar Seafood and Tacos

The newest location of Bajamar Seafood and Tacos can be found at 8180 Blue Diamond Road, in an unassuming strip mall at Cimarron and Blue Diamond. It is open Monday-Saturday 12 pm to 8 pm, 12 pm to 6 pm on Sundays.

El Luchador Mexican Restaurant + Cantina

After a hike on Exploration Peak, cross the street to Mountain’s Edge Marketplace for a treat at El Luchador Mexican Restaurant + Cantina. Officially located at 7825 Blue Diamond Road (Blue Diamond and Buffalo), El Luchador honors the history of lucha libre wrestling in its name and décor.

It operates from 4 pm to 9 pm on Sunday to Friday and from 12 pm to 9 pm on Saturday.

Street Tacos Al Vapor

Street Tacos Al Vapor is, as the name implies, a place that serves steamed tacos. The former food truck now has two locations in the Valley. The Southwest store is at 6145 West Cactus Ave (Cactus and Jones) and is open 3 pm to 11:30 pm, Tuesday-Sunday.

It is closed on Mondays.

Habaneros Taco Grill

The inaugural Habaneros Taco Grill can be found at the intersection of Fort Apache and Flamingo. At first glance, its exterior might remind you of a Roberto’s. However, Habaneros boasts a classic Mexican fast-food menu, featuring delectable burritos, tortas, and breakfast delights.

We can’t recommend their hard-shelled tacos enough. And before you leave, make sure to indulge in their shredded beef taco. The combination of a crispy taco shell filled with succulent beef and cheese that’s just about to melt is simply irresistible.

With nine Habaneros locations now gracing Las Vegas, it’s clear we’re not the only fans.

The operating hours for this particular spot are from 7 am to 12 am daily, though hours might differ at other branches.
