Great vegan options! Lots to choose from, and the service is fast. This has a bar vibe so it's loud.

Our server Jordan was a delight. That was our 2nd time at Hussong’s and would go back again for certain. Great place.

There are far too many good places to eat in Vegas to waste your time & money on this place. Music was deafening, food was average & service was sub-par. Very disappointing.

Good team dinner and drinks. Nice atmosphere with private room and barman who really work with us instead of for us.

The food was amazing! It was so delicious! We went during happy hour, so the original margarita was only $6 and it was super tasty. I ordered 2 chicken tacos ($3 each!) and an order of Tatchos ($5), and was so full off the tacos that I couldn't finish my Tatchos. We had a party of 7 and they were super accommodating. We went to Vegas for a JoJo Siwa concert and the manager even changed the music to get out girls excited for the show. It was such a sweet gesture. We will definitely go back next time we are at the Mandalay Bay.

We had an excellent experience at Hussong's Cantina! My friend and I shared the Chicken Enchiladas because it came with 3 and we didn't think we could finish plates of our own. They were excellent! We also ordered the Ceviche and it also was a pretty good sized portion and DELICIOUS! I would like to say the prices are on the higher end, but considering the location and the size of servings, we were pleased with what we got. I will definitely visit again!

Food, atmosphere, and the mariachi band were amazing. Price was decent considering it’s Vegas, and the food was really good! Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed and wasn’t very attentive, we had to ask for drink refills and had to get his attention 30 minutes after our plates were cleared from the table for our check.
We will definitely go back on our next visit!!

This review is for the location inside Mandalay Bay. I would have given a higher score, but the service wasn't good.

We went to Hussong's on May 25 before watching the New Kids on the Block concert. We had a 6 pm reservation. We were 15 minutes but was taken to our table right away. It wasn't busy yet when we got there. It took about a good ten minutes before we could flag down anybody to our table. A guy in a blue collared shirt came over, took our drink orders and walked away. A female server finally showed up...but went to the table next to us, who was seated a good 10 minutes AFTER we did. She took their order and walked away. And didn't acknowledge us. Another 10 minutes passed and she FINALLY showed up. No apologies whatsoever. The only comment she said was if we were FINALLY ready to order. Uh, we were ready twenty minutes ago. To the kitchen's credit, our food came out fast and they were really good. We had guacamole, and some of the street tacos. Too bad we couldn't take the leftovers home with us. When it was time to pay, we had to flag another server. I think our server disappeared. He brought the bill to us.

I made another reservation for July. Hopefully the service will be better. The food is really good that is why I rebooked. I also made a reservation in two weeks at the Boca Park location.

The food was fantastic! My fiance and I shared the carnitas and diablo shrimp, and it was more than enough for the two of us. We were stuffed! So yummy! We also shared the romance margarita (64 oz) and we definitely had a nice buzz going after we finished it lol!

Had a company dinner, slow with drinks & food at best was average. Had the fajitas combo & the quality was below average & I ate about half the meal, only because I was so hungry.

I have visited Hussong's many times. This was the first time, I have had complaints. My food and many others was cold. There was a major issue with splitting up the bill. Even though my experience this time was less than satisfactory, I would probably still recommend.

We were seated toward the front and enjoyed watching the people meander through the Shoppes. There were plenty of TV's to view the local Golden Knights game. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. Their guac and chicarrones are my new favorite appetizer. And, I don't even like pork rinds. These will make you a solid convert. The fajitas a sizzling and flavorful. Hubby had shrimp with his and I had pork belly on mine. Both were prepared to perfection. Hussongs also has a kid friendly menu at a value price. I highly recommend Hussongs for family night, happy hour, or a special date.

Decent portions. If you like mariachi music, this is the place for you! Fortunately, it wasn't too loud when we were there and the restaurant was not crowded. I had a tostada plate and it was tasty!

Service was good and so was the food and presentation. However, the noise level made it impossible to have a conversation on a Friday night. I enjoyed a glass of red sangria, but they are famous for their Margaritas. I would definitely go back on my next visit to Vegas.
