Five Mexican Restaurants to Try in Las Vegas

Like in most major tourist cities, you’ll never run out of restaurants to try in Las Vegas. Whether you’re in the mood for American, vegan, sushi, Brazilian steakhouse, or tacos, you can find something to suit your tastes. Here you’ll find five of the best Mexican restaurants to try in Las Vegas:

Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina

Check out Bandito Latin Kitchen if you’re looking for a cool place to have a drink with friends, or a place to go out before seeing a show. Bandito is a new addition to the Las Vegas valley, located just a few blocks away from the Strip. The restaurant’s wide-open design and pops of color set it apart from other restaurants of its kind, as does the food. Try a Smoking Bandito or a Chango Wango if you’re just going for the drinks; for a full meal, try the brick-pressed roasted chicken. For the more adventurous eaters, go for the braised octopus tacos.
