I went to Mercadito at Red Rock Resort for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I was so hungry I couldn’t take a picture of my food when it was served. The Pastor tacos (professional photo above) were delicious – even without the pineapple.

The tacos were pricey at $14.50 for a serving of four (menu) but they may have been the best tacos I’ve had. My friends were loving the guacamole, if you’re into that sorta thing. I’m not but I did enjoy some super salty chips and 3 different salsa’s with verde being my favorite.

If you’re cost conscious you can find less expensive tacos at the Nacho Daddy location nearby on Sahara but you may not find a better quality taco.

Mercadito has a bunch of promotions going on right now. Check it out.

  • All You Can Eat Tacos – $19.95 on Sunday & Monday. If you’re not a big eater this may not be worth it. I was full on the four tacos with my $14.50 order of Pastor tacos.
  • Tacos For Life – Enter contest by spending $40. If you finish 32 tacos in one hour you’ll receive the meal for free and a $200 gift card. You’ll also be entered to win tacos for life.
  • Super Bowl – $50 for all you can eat tacos and 2 hour open bar. Open bar is basically $30 so make sure you’re thirsty. Additional buckets of beer are $15.
  • Industry People – 50% off on Tuesdays. Evidently I’m industry. HOLLA!
  • Two Happy Hours DailyHappy Hour 7 days a week and twice a day. Early 3pm-6pm daily, nights change. More details and menu here.

I was bored last week so I decided to spend a day and night in Downtown Vegas mostly on Fremont Street. Surprisingly, I didn’t gamble much but I had a great time anyway. I’ll be sharing highlights throughout the week.

If you know me you know that I don’t drink tequila. The last time I had tequila I vomited on myself. No bueno. Good thing I met up with someone willing to taste test the margarita at Nacho Daddy.

I needed to know if the sign was true or false advertising! With that in mind I had an ice cold beer. It was so cold that there was almost ice forming on the top of my beer.

Unlike previous visits I didn’t go to Nacho Daddy to eat. It was to meet up with Gray from Vegas Solo and have a drink. Unbeknownst to either of us we found Scott from Vital Vegas sitting at the corner of the bar.
