    We normally frequent the steakhouses in Vegas but decided to give Hecho En Vegas a try. It was just great! So fresh and flavorful. The short rib tacos were so good, as was the tableside guac. What really makes this restaurant stand out is the staff. SO friendly..Daniel made us laugh and feel welcome. Just an overall great experience and we will definitely return to Hecho on our next stay at the MGM Grand.

    A short story about an inexcusable customer service experience: We're seated, chips are dropped off, and then nothing for over ten minutes, at which point we just get up and leave. On the way out, I mention to a manager that no one had been by, at which point she pleaded with me to stay, telling me that they actually prided themselves on wonderful service - service that was obviously not evident to any of us that evening. By then, we had lost our taste for Hecho en Vegas, and why risk now being served by someone who had been chided by the manager for not doing their job in the first place? There are so many other excellent Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas - find one of them and pass this one by. You'll be glad you did.

    Seated right away to a fairly private table for two. The chips, salsa, and guac seemed fresh and were very good. Shrimp appetizer was excellent and the taco platter included a variety of options from fish to pork and chicken etc. Good menu, wait staff, lighting...overall a nice dining experience.

    We decided to eat here before watching the Circ show KA- it was ok. The food was pretty average for Mexican and pretty prices $18 for 2 tacos is pretty steep. We ordered the guacamole and that was nice, they actually make it fresh at the table. Other than that, it's not worthh bragging about.

    We love Mexican food! I was so happy to learn they had Corona Lite on tap!!!!! LOVED the warm chips and dips!!!!!! Then it went down hill from there...my husband's beef on his Caesar salad was blood red and over seasoned. He ordered medium. My chicken enchiladas were the worst I've had in years. The chicken was totally unseasoned and dry as a bone....no flavor. Don't bother unless you just want chips and cocktails..... Our server was really cute and good, but the food ruined the evening....bummer!

    We usually seek out restaurants via friends recommendations or online reviews but decided to try this one on the fly. We will fly no more. Food was edible at best and VERY expensive for Mexican food. Go somewhere else, i.e. Taco Bell

    The BBQ wings were delicious - probably the best item we ate. The rice was mushy and lacked flavor but the beans were pretty tasty. Everything else was just OK nothing overly impressive. Our waiter (Daniel) was completely unfriendly and did not smile even once - he bordered on being rude. He was rushing us which made us feel very uncomfortable. The other wait staff seemed very nice though it's too bad we got stuck with the grumpy old one. The other issue was we found rocks in our food... It was very strange - we were eating the chips and dipping them into the beans and two pebbles almost broke out my tooth. The server refused to assist us with his overly surly attitude, however the manager was apologetic.

    My son called the tableside guac the best he's ever had. We went to see David Copperfield at 7 pm and booked a table for a late dinner after the show. Finding it is not easy - the MGM is an enormous hotel. It's located deep in the area known as The District. But once there our service was great and the food came out very quickly. The house margarita was strong - just what the doctor ordered. This was a great choice.

    Seriously can't tell you how much I enjoyed this place. Food was good, table side guacamole though was awesome. I make guac at home, but never this good. Service was excellent and very attentitive. Do expect to pay a little more than your neighborhood TexMex spot. 2 bar drinks, guacamole, and two entrees with tip set me back $90+.

    There is nothing unique about Hecho. Diego's was much better in regard to atmosphere and quality of service and food. We had to wait to order, then waited for our drinks. Chips were the kind out of a bag. The guacamole at the table was good! I was extremely disappointed in the restaurant.

    This successor of Diego promised to have modern style and good quality Mexican food. However, this is not really the case. Very salty salsa. The enchilladas were quite average with also too much salt. The chicken fajitas was better and tasty. Margarita was nothing special. Outdoor seating is in the middle of the hustle and bustle of MGM Grand and is nice. Personnel was not very friendly. After a conversation, it was much better. Expensive too. We miss Isla, which disappeared from TI. Hecho should at least have similar standards.

    We made a reservation but still waited for a table as they did not have a table large enough to accommodate our reservation. This was not acceptable so they said we could have a table for five but would need to eat in 45 mins as the area we would be sitting in was set up for a large party. Our reservation was handled poorly. We did end up working it out and had a great time with the waiter and the food was excellent.

Our experience was incredible, from the management who stopped by to check in, to our server Leo who took excellent care of us. The food was fantastic. I want to thank everyone at Hecho for making our special occasion one we will all remember.

    The menu was confusing and help from the waiter/waitress would help customers to better understand their choices. The food itself was over priced for the amount given. The waiting staff seems to tend to the customer fairly well. Overall it was a less than stellar dining experience and not great.

    The food was authentic Mexican and very good. The service left a little to be desired. There are no salt and pepper shakers on the table and when I asked for some the waiter acted like I was asking for something they didn't have and took forever to find any. He was not very friendly and hardly said 2 words. Maybe I just caught him on a bad night.

    We had booked Hecho based on the reviews on Open Table, but were very disappointed. We had to send food back as it was cold, my friend had to send hers back a second time as the second meal was also luke warm (the manager comp'd her meal). The presentation/flavor gave the impression that the food had been prepared in advance and then re-heated. It was fast food at restaurant prices. We had booked Nobu and Hecho, and decided to go for Hecho as it was in the same venue as a concert we were attending. Big mistake.

    Over priced like all of Las Vegas. Food didn't stand out. Me and my wife had 3 items off the "happy hour" menu. Street Tacos which came out as 3 tiny tacos, like kid size. Had the chimi experience, also three tiny size bites. The chimis did have a nice flavor but after two bites they are history. Also had the guacamole, which may have been the only decent item on the happy hour menu. All drinks are not half price as I found out when the bill arrived and having been charged $8 for a pint of beer. Chalk it up to being a Vegas newbie.

    I wanted to try Hecho en Vegas since it's related to El Charro in Tucson and I'm a huge fan of El Charro. The food was excellent. They really put a modern hip twist to traditional dishes. I had the tamales, they were so good almost as good as my mom's home made tamales. it definitely is up there in price range but it was worth it, the atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend it.
