    So I had seen that the $2 margaritas are excluding Friday and Saturday.

    What about the $2 tequila shots? I see there are 30 varieties...for $20 per...I think I might try them all...not in one day though?

    And $2 tacos...always?

    The menu says $3 beers (starting price), but the home page boasts $2 beers, any info?

    I had their all day breakfast. It was really good. Reasonable price. Much better than the Sidewalk Cafe breakfast buffet next door. I did try to order a $2 marg but the guy wouldn't serve me because I didn't have my passport on me and he wouldn't take my Ontario Canada driver's permit.

    We hit the up three nights for the $2 tacos. Both nights they also brought out some of the best chips and salsa I have had in LV.

    The tacos are soft chicken, but one night they brought us beef???

    It's a good deal for sure.

    We have never left unhappy, eat there afew times a trip. The $2 shots are kinda small if remember right. The $2 tacos are great. There nachos are great also, huge plate with tons of stuff piled on. Wife & I couldn't finish it.

    I though their $2 tacos were disgusting and that's saying alot since I was drunk and I only eat to stay alive.

    I didn't like the tacos nearly as much the last time I was there (early December), I'm guessing they downgraded quality to keep the price the same. They also got rid of ~cheap late night breakfasts, now they want ~$9. :(

    So there menu doesn't say anything about the Taco Special. Is this a special during happy hour only or all of the time?

    We eat there at least twice if not 3 times during our normal 7 night stays at Ballys. Beside the larger than one can handle nachos I always get the burger and fries for $10. It is enough food to get me through any night on the strip.
    If your looking for drink special get a pitcher of Margaritas for $20 you will be feeling real good afterwards.

    Agreed 100% .. I am pretty sure my whole group was praying to not be sick after eating those tacos. Beef or Chicken... i dont think we could tell the difference.

    Hit the Stage Door across the street. When I was there last the shots were a little large and $2.50, they were Patron.

    I have eaten a few times there and it was excellent
    The colonel salad was xtremely yummy
    And yeah i rather drink the better more expensive magarithas than the cheap ones
    At yoloz(ph) i ate also a couple of times 9,99 specials with the 5$ magarita and that was excellent too
    The only bad mexican food i had was at the ip(now quad) but i dont thimk they are still around there, if im at the quad i only go to hash house a go go anyway

    We always hit this place ... great for a few cheap drinks and reasonably-priced good food when you just need something and do not want to stand in line for a fancier place. I had quite a few cheap beers the last time we were there and the bill was shockingly low for the standard Vegas restaurant.

    Came here with my youngest boy who turned 21. We came in around 1am and ordered 6 chicken tacos and 2 beers. Wasn't bad, total cost of $16. Would come here again, staff was good as well as the food. Also helped that we were staying at Ballys too.

    I was sober as I rarely drink but the tacos were overpriced. Not good, get the nachos or even the soup was tasty. (I was given a choice of beef or chicken.)
