A word from Tacos & Tequila - Luxor
Tacos & Tequila embodies the cool modernism of the new Mexico City as well as incorporating traditional elements of Mexican style and high-end Las Vegas panache. This color mixture of old and new creates a vivid picture of brushed aluminum, dark woods, fanciful leather, bright fabrics, and colored glass. Bull Fighting is an important thematic element in the setting of T & T. A 25 by 40 foot photographic mural depicting a female matador and a fierce bull locked in combat adorns the only wall in the main dining room. “The Beauty and the Beast” appear in a sensual give and take on three large murals hanging on the walls of “El Salon”, our intimate dining room located in the rear of the restaurant.

    In town with a large group and was worried about what a Saturday night would be like. Knowledgeable staff, great service, great food without breaking the bank. The music DJ was playing was a little too loud and didn't fit the theme. It was hard to converse during dinner without having to yell over it. Need to decide if they want to be a restaurant or a hot spot. All in all would visit again but maybe with a smaller group.

    Casual environment open to the sights and sounds of the Luxor. Surprisingly low noise level given wide open location. Food is good, plentiful and quick to the table. Carnitas was perfectly spiced, moist and huge in portion - than one person needs, but good taste challenges one to try. Good guacamole. Chile Rilleno was also very good and gigantic,

    A group of my closest girlfriends and I were attending the show "Fantasy" at the Luxor and wanted to get a bite to eat before the show, so we decided on T&T what a great idea. We had great service and great food. I'll definitely go back.

    I had not been here before and so did not know what to expect. The restaurant is quite open into the rest of the Luxor. The ambiance could be better but did not have high expectations of a Tequila bar that happens to have food. We ordered the street tacos in Carnitas and Steak and they were EXCELLENT! We just wish we had more of them! The beans and rice that came with them were good as well. Chips were ok and salsa was pretty good. We had the Tres Leches for dessert and would not order that again as it was dry for a traditional wet cake with not much milk. The service was very good and all in all we had a very good experience. Not the bext mexican food that we've ever had, but not the worst either by a long shot!

    Had a surprise dinner for my wife at Tacos & Tequila before Steve Miller Band / Journey concert. Very good food in a open bar types setting. Very good choice if you want something smaller than a sit-down big dinner. Not inexpensive but definitely fit what we were looking for. Recommendable and would eat there again if staying in the hotel again or have an event near the Luxor.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    The tequila list was fabulous ! However the tacos were disgusting. There was 4 of us & we ordered 8 beef tacos. The beef was stringy & old tasting. We all took one bite & sent them back, we were not credited for the tacos. Instead we were offered cheap shots of tequila, which I sent back. We ended up paying full price & eating room service for dinner.

    The food is good, nothing spectacular, but good. The tequila list is extensive. It can be very noisy and on the weekends they have Mariachi's playing music, they are good, but consider themselves to be comedians as well, so if you're looking for a peaceful lunch, this might not be the place or go on a day other than a weekend. I would return, but it isn't a "must go to" place. The salsa's (two brought to the table) are very standard bulk salsa's, the chips are crisp and only lightly salted. The fish taco's were uneven, they were good, but each had a very different size piece of fish from standard to microscopic, the black beans were ok, the Spanish rice was bland.

    The food they serve is good overall. Just like most of other restaurant in Luxor and Mandalay Bay, it is more contemporary side whereas the traditional Mexican. If you prefer a quite place, it is not an option as the music they play is quite loud.

    The food is wonderful. The salsa verde is the best we've ever had. Margaritas were good. But, the service was absolutely horrible. We had to find different servers to help us because ours was never around and then when he did show up, he'd forget things.

    I've come to T&T for my birthday the last 3 years. I enjoy the place but I have an issue with reservations. I placed reservations for 830pm and wasn't seated until 840pm when we arrived at 820pm, I know it's only 10mins but the restaurant wasnt busy and two parties who came around the same time, without reservations as us were seated before us. So, what the point of reservations? In many other restaurants when you have a reservation you are promptly seated. The server was also slow and attentive, seemed to be the only one there and the bar was slow to get our drinks out. I usually go during the crunch hour and the service is much better. I will most likely try a new place my next visit, as I visit often.

    The "Two Hot Tamales" need to visit their restaurant and fix a few things. First of all, the tortilla chips taste like the cheap stuff you get at the 7-Eleven, and the salsa is nothing to write home about (the best salsa in Vegas is at Cabo Wabo). I ordered the steak fajitas - and what I got was grisly meat, and a smattering of condiments. Remember the old Chi Chi's chain? They were better than this. The service, however, was pleasant. It wasn't the people, it was the food - borderline gross, but definitely yuck.

    We were searching for a restaurant near the Bodies exhibition and Mexican food sounded good. The food was good. Nothing bad, but nothing outstanding. Loved the menu with tequila flights though! Fun to try. Best part was the bill wasn't crazy expensive - unusual in Vegas.

    I was so excited to go to a good tequila bar and was so disappointed with almost everything. The only correct item is that they do have a decent tequila selection-overpriced but available. The food is horrible; the red salsa served with the chips had a petroleum flavor - the green salsa was decent as were the chips. I ordered the Carne Asada-it had so much fat and gristle it was inedible; the rice looked like it was out of a can and the black beans were so dry I could have used for paste. We made reservations considering it was during CES and knowing restaurants are so busy - not so here and I now know why. The food and service are bad, do not waste your money here.

    The food had great flavor. All three of us order different tacos. They were served on 4 inch corn tortillas, looked more like an appetizer than an entrée portion. Huge portion of rice that no one ever eats at any Mexican restaurant anyway. Black beans were nice instead of refried beans. Service was slow and the server apologized every time she showed up to the table. Even though we had reservations and there were several open tables, we still had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Overall not worth the price for what you get.

    Service was a bit disorganized and slow, although it manger to finally work out in the end. Started off non responsive and the standard "I'll be back in a minute to take gor order", yet 10-15 minutes passed etc. Good food but music was annoying for a Mexican themed joint - like a nightclub with techno.
