We’re a Las Vegas restaurant that serves modern Mexican food in Las Vegas, Nevada. We opened in Henderson in 2016 with the goal to “make simple better.” We believe that the best Mexican food comes from unfussy, high-quality ingredients, so that’s what we use.
Traditional Mexican cuisine with a twist influences our food here at Me Gusta. We call it “semi-authentic.” You may find some ingredients you weren’t expecting on our extensive menu!
We are a Las Vegas restaurant serving modern Mexican cuisine. Our first location opened in Henderson in 2016 with the goal to “make simple better,” using high-quality, unfussy ingredients to create the best Mexican food possible. Me Gusta Tacos is owned by two Las Vegas locals who share a passion for excellent food and hospitality.
Our owners are committed to using sustainable farming practices, fresh ingredients, and making everything in-house to develop the best Mexican food in Las Vegas. We offer great food, fast service, and a fun atmosphere!
We may be biased, but we have the best Mexican food in town!
We have burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and nachos that you’ll want to eat every day. (and you should.)
While other Las Vegas Mexican restaurants have a few different taco options, we serve nine different types of tacos at Me Gusta Tacos! There is truly something for everyone.
For beef lovers, try our slow-cooked beef barbacoa with a smoky chipotle or our charbroiled carne asada. And for a lighter option, you could have tacos with tender shredded chicken or melt-in-your-mouth pork carnitas!
We’re not above a bit of fusion in our tacos either! We brought some of our favorite Eastern flavors to the taco-verse with our Korean Kalbi — steak marinated in sweet soy and ginger, topped with Asian cabbage slaw. We also have a pork belly banh mi taco topped with fresh Vietnamese slaw and citrusy cilantro.
Ready to go fishing? Our fish tacos have big pieces of pan-seared cod topped with cilantro, red cabbage, and spicy wasabi crema. Or you can try our shrimp tacos- large, tender shrimp are cooked with aromatic garlic and finished with corn salsa, queso fresco, and Sriracha crema.
Don’t think we’ve forgotten the vegetarians! Our filling veggie tacos are made with roasted squash, bell pepper, and corn, then topped with Sriracha crema and queso fresco. We’ll remove the dairy for vegans and top them with our tasty house-made salsas instead!)
But what if tacos aren’t going to cut it? What if you have a hunger that can only be satisfied by a HUGE burrito? Well, don’t worry. Our burritos are part of what makes us a top Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. Eater highlighted them on their Instagram feed!
Your classic burrito (choice of meat, Spanish rice, guacamole, jack cheese, and fresh pico) is what you’ll get with the Mission. You can choose carnitas, carne asada, barbacoa, chicken, pork belly, Kalbi, or shrimp.
You can also get our sought-after shrimp burrito stuffed with Spanish rice, jack cheese, pico, romaine lettuce, and spicy Sriracha crema. Pro tip — add carne asada to make it a surf-and-turf burrito!
For less traditional burritos, we wanted to add something that would push them over. And we came up with tater tots! Our California burrito contains your choice of protein, crunchy tater tots, mild cheddar, and tangy sour cream.
You can have your breakfast in burrito form with the Durango — scrambled eggs, bacon, “hash browns” (aka tater tots), pico, and mild cheddar.
And for our hungry vegetarians, we have The Anthem Burrito: roasted squash and black beans, Spanish rice, guacamole, and queso fresco.
But our Green Valley restaurant has more than just tacos and burritos. We have other Mexican-American staples, like loaded quesadillas and nachos. Select your protein and get gooey, melty cheddar, homemade guacamole, and pico de gallo.
The nachos also have plenty of black beans and a big spoonful of sour cream.
That could have been enough, but we saw all those tater tots and thought we could do something else with them! So we fried up a batch and topped them with cheddar, guac, sour cream, and your choice of protein. Um, yes, please.
For extras, we have shrimp ceviche, homemade guacamole, and our addictive white queso. Plus, we have three of house-made salsas — roja, verde, and habanero. The roja is the mildest, while the habanero has the most heat. Be careful with this one. It’s not for the faint of heart! You can try it all at the best Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas.
It has to be churros for Mexican dessert, breadstick-shaped fried sweet pastries dusted in sugar. We have THREE options at Me Gusta Tacos — cinnamon sugar, caramel, and Bavarian cream!
Let the helpful staff at our Las Vegas Mexican restaurant know if you have any dietary restrictions! It’s important to us that you have a delicious and convenient vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free meal. Our burrito bowls, Me Gusta bowl, and black bean salad are all gluten-free!
