Tex Mex or Mexican recommendations

I am off to Vegas and I want the best tex-mex or mexican food available. All advice appreciated ....and any other interesting ethnic food would be appreciated

  1. Vegas doesn't have any good traditional mexican food. Mundo has fantastic modern latin food. I love it there. Tacos Gordo, Tacos Mexico and a few other places around town offer decent tacos but not as good as a many other places in L.A. For Tex Mex not too many choices and none I've found worth recommending.

    1. Another vote for Mundo! Especially Happy Hour at the bar.

      1. A strong second on Mundo if you want up scale dining at a reasonable price. If you want to try a "hole in the wall" then I would recommend Los Molcajetes located at Eastern and Owens. There are several threads on this board and plenty of Yelp reviews. They do not have a full liquor license so you are limited to beer and wine. The combination Molcajete is very good!

        As I recall Westie posted some pictures from Los Molcajetes...

        1. Casa Don Juan on Main
          I would skip Tacos El Gordo
          El Jeffe is good
          There are a ton of Mexivan restaurants in town, as well as trailers/street vendors. One I want to try is on the corner of Bonanza, and LV Blvd. They always have a line,and the adobada looks good from the street. We also have a lot of other Latin American countries represented.

          What do you consider bad/good Mexican? Anything in particular that you are looking to try?
