A Mexican favorite on the Strip to reopen at Palace Station

Updated September 14, 2021 - 11:13 am

Mexican food lovers soon will have another option, as Tacos & Tequila — also known as T&T — returns to Las Vegas at Palace Station.

A Strip-side fixture for more than a decade, T&T closed at Luxor in 2018. At Palace Station, it will be near the sportsbook in a spot that formerly was Little Tony’s.

Signature dishes include #1 Alambre, which is filet mignon with applewood-smoked bacon, Oaxaca cheese, poblano chiles, onion and cilantro on a corn tortilla; a shrimp quesadilla in a flour tortilla with black beans and Oaxaca cheese; and beef barbacoa enchiladas, made with brisket, a sauce of roasted guajillo peppers and tomatoes, gouda, Oaxaca and jack cheeses and picked onions. Vegan and gluten-free selections also are available.

T&T’s margaritas include the Top Shelf, with pineapple chipotle, strawberry agave and pomegranate acai, and more than 100 tequilas will be available.

The restaurant is expected to open by the end of the year.
