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.

  • Great Mexican inside Luxor
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 11/26/2014
    This is some of the more creative Mexican on the Strip. It's got plenty of space and a very friendly staff. If you like lamb, try the Barbacoa tacos. Great guacamole and they keep the chips coming! You'll either love or hate the music---mash-ups of rock and dance songs that play constantly. Creative but sometimes annoying. We go here every time we come to Vegas.

    We visited on a Saturday, Nov. 15, for Happy Hour. It was moderately busy. Will start with the mariachi band: Those guys were tremendous, and it was really cool seeing customers singing along with them. That was a plus. My wife ordered tacos. I ordered a burrito. The burrito is a better deal: Huge serving. The tacos look tiny but were filling, according to my wife. Thought the food was excellent. The salsas served with the complimentary chips were tasty. Margaritas were standard fare. Our waiter .... he wasn't good. Never smiled. Never came back to ask if we wanted anything else. Never asked if our food was good. I tipped him, but he totally didn't earn it. And it's a shame too because the Luxor staff in that giant pyramid really do go out of their way to make sure you have an excellent stay. It was the one poor experience I had with anyone there. So good food ... decent price (for the Strip), the mariachi band is fun. But if you want really good service, not sure it's possible there. Very uninspired.

    I thought this was going to be good food in a fun atmosphere, I was wrong. The chips and salsa that come standard with any Mexican meal was the highlight of my lunch. I ordered a taco combo, three types of tacos, sadly they were all so dry and bland I did not even eat all of my food. My waiter was very absent and slow. Odd since it was fairly slow when I was there. I received 2 checks, one of which was not mine and then he completely forgot that he had my credit card and tried to give me another check. This is officially by first bad meal in Vegas.

    When I go out drinking, I love to have huevos rancheros for breakfast the next day. The dish was pretty tasty and we were pleasantly surprised by the mariachi band that was playing. We were further surprised when they serenaded each guest's table and took requests! Loved it!

    Located on the 2nd floor of Luxor, this is an open air restaurant inside which lots to see and hear going on around you. food was very tasty and fresh - highly recommend the fish burrito (the mahi-Mahi was fantastic! !). Good sized portions. The drinks were tasty too and again a great price. A nice spot to grab a bite to eat prior to going to a show.

    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.

    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.

    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.
