With a half-pound Victory Burger and a super unique Martini Burger, you’re going to want to stop by and have a bite.
The first and only permanent food truck on Fremont Street is dedicated to some of the best barbecue in town.

With 6 locations only in Las Vegas and San Diego, you can rest assured that Tacos El Gordo will be some of the best Mexican food you’ve had in a while.
