“There’s nothing like authentic Mexican food to fuel the party and George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen will be serving up freshly-made dishes our guests are going to love,” Stephen Thayer, vice president and general manager of The STRAT, said in a press release.

Featuring freshly made tortillas on an exhibition griddle and woodfired carne asada, the restaurant will offer street corn, tacos, and more in a space decorated with Chicano art. Tacos and burritos will come in corn, flour, and cauliflower tortillas, filled out with proteins like carnitas, carne asada, citrus-marinated chicken, and soyrizo. It will also offer signature cocktails like the Chihuahua Margarita, a frozen margarita completed with George Lopez Brewing Company’s Li’l Mexi Mexican Lager.

“George Lopez and the team at Chingon Kitchen can’t wait to bring our So Cal-style Mexican cuisine, cocktails and beers to the Strip,” Michael Zislis, co-founder of George Lopez’s Chingon Kitchen said. “Were going to bring the heat to The STRAT.”

Chingon Kitchen is expected to open in late 2022.
