Fast, Affordable, Friendly

I'm so happy to find an affordable place where my boyfriend (meat eater) and I can eat together. The man who took our order was helpful and very friendly. The tacos were filling and delicious. There is a large selection of beer and tequila. It was a slow night, so they were closing early... but they knew we wanted to order take out for our friends, so they came over to our table to let us know the kitchen was getting ready to close. We were told that they frequently have bands playing: punk, dark metal(?), jazz, country. And the location is right across from UNLV, so I imagine it gets busy. We just happened to try it on a night the band had been cancelled. I can't wait to try it again when a band is playing... and since it's a family restaurant, I can take my teenaged (vegetarian) daughter who LOVES live music.

Pros: Delicious Food, Friendly Staff, Good Value
Cons: Hard to See From Street

I wanted to love this place, it's just got a cool vibe. The food was ok, but our tacos were so greasy, the meal left us feeling heavy.

I do appreciate the fact that they have Veg Options.

Cons: greasy

If you are looking for a quick vegan option for lunch, YAYo Taco delivers great taste and the meals are quickly prepared. They have a small menu with both meat and meatless tacos, but I loved the vegetarian tacos I sampled. The tacos are filled with a vegan protein and veggies with a lot of spice and flavor. They also have sides that are vegan and vegetarian friendly and were happy to answer my questions as I ordered to make sure I went vegan friendly for lunch.
