The search is well worth the reward. – In Short
It may be the hardest-to-find hole-in-the wall in town, but the search for this Mexican master is worth it. Owner Ernie Calderon, formerly proprietor of Vega's Cafe on West Charleston (which used to be Las Vegas' best Mexican restaurant) may not want or need the adulation of the restaurant public. Though, he would surely get it if lovers of true carne asada, huge machaca burritos and the world's best flour tortilla chips could ever find him.
Awful Canned Food – I went with my wife based on a good review by the editor. The salsa was made from canned tomatoes and was flat. The soda came in cans. The burritos were small, the refried beans came from a can, and the meat tasted disgusting. I can't see how anybody would have enjoyed eating there. The only positive was a nice waiteress who I didn't have the heart to tell her the food was awful. We paid our $20 and left hungry.
El Calderon is Numero Uno! – El Calderon has been a family favorite for many years. All the food is delicious, and the service is great. To top it off, it's easy on the wallet. If you're looking for some tasty authentic Mexican food at an excellent price, El Calderon is the place to be. I personally recommend the cheese enchilada for all you cheese lovers out there!
