I have had good results at Garduno's(Palms) and at Cabo(Red Rock).Been to both more than once.Garduno's has a salsa bar for good variety, Cabo brings 3 different salsa and a hot bean dip to you with the chips.

Cabo wabo Cantina inside the Planet Hollywood has decent Tex-Mex food. Probably best on the strip.

Been there, completely unimpressed.

If you are a Texan, you will not like it.

 Their salsas are okay but not particularly hot.

 My biggest issue as a Texan is that the Tex-Mex joints here give chips and salsa complimentary; there you have to request and pay for it. Also, they only give you a half serving of chips, stuffing the bottom with paper to make it look like a full serving.

I had a comped meal there, and still thought it cost too much, if that tells you anything. If you're a native Texan or used to Tex-Mex from Texas, you will not be impressed.

It is more of a place to grab drinks at night and see a little nightlife.  There is also a nightly cover charge.  If you are looking for authentic on the Strip, head to Dona & Maria's by downtown, but still on LV Blvd.  It has been around twenty plus years and is a good place with good prices.

Try Lindo Michoacan on East Desert Inn Road. They have pretty good food and atmosphere there. I got the Carnitas last time. And don't forget the Margaritas!

Lindo is excellent, they have a few in Vegas.....Try the restaurant in NewYork/New York......much better than most (and tv's all over for watching your sports bets)....

Gonzalez & Gonzalez @ NYNY is alright.

Just don't order a tall draft unless you want a yard of beer.

Had no idea until he sat the thing in front of me

Isla in Treasure Island is the best I have had, I have been to Gonzalez Gonzalez which is a close 2nd at New York New York, and I would say diablo's and pink taco are pretty much the same place to me, I would say Isla or Gonzalez Gonzalez are top notch
