Las Vegas is in for a real treat this summer with the Nevadan debut of Sayulitas Mexican Food. There’s no better location for a Mexican restaurant that serves boulder-sized burritos and asada fries stacked with guacamole, cheese, and sour cream than the Las Vegas Strip. Soon locals and tourists will experience Sayulitas’ tortilla-wrapped explosion of flavor.
Since its conception in 2015, Sayulitas has expanded to five locations throughout San Diego County with the original beacon standing strong on Mira Mesa Boulevard. This newest addition will mark the first out-of-state restaurant for the family-owned chain.
Team associate Danny Sola told What Now Las Vegas that with the growing number of San Diegoans moving to the Entertainment Capital of the World–including family, friends, and acquaintances–Vegas began to resemble a home away from home. The city’s proximity to San Diego–just a five-hour drive or an hour flight–will allow for a smooth transition across state lines.
Sayulitas will settle into a 1,200 square-foot restaurant located on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, just across from the Mandalay Bay. The taco shop will provide indoor and outdoor seating with a total occupancy of 28. While staying true to Sayulitas’ beach aesthetic, a mural will also incorporate the vibrant culture of Las Vegas.
Sayulitas offers traditional Mexican fare with a Filipino twist. The menu is packed with mouthwatering eats like the Sayulitas Burrito (shrimp, bacon, rice, lettuce, Mexican salsa, guacamole, chipotle sauce, and grilled cheese); the Hot Cheetos Burrito ( carne asada, hot cheetos, nacho cheese, guacamole, and sour cream); and heavenly fusion creations like the Tocino Burrito (marinated sweet pork, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, Mexican salsa, and fries).
If the too-good-to-be-true menu paralyzes you with indecision, we recommend going with the Rosy Fries, named after Owner Rosa Flores. These specialty fries are teeming with carne asada, bacon, chipotle sauce, guacamole, sour cream, and cheese–all of which sits on a perfect flour tortilla. As Flores notes, you get asada fries and a burrito with this signature plate.
San Diegoans have been raving about Sayulitas’ bomb burritos for years and soon Las Vegas will learn what all the hype is about.
Flores told What Now Las Vegas that Sayulitas is pushing for an August debut. Be sure to check in with Sayulitas on Instagram for updates on its grand opening.
