New Dining Options in Downtown Las Vegas

While 2020 was by all accounts a difficult year for local restaurant owners and well known food spots that have been forced to close, we have found a new group of brands. They offer fresh new options for those of us looking to support local restaurants. Equally as impressive as the food is the fact that the new brands are owned by local African American business people.


The brands include:


Madero Street Tacos - Madero’s menu is based on authentic Mexican food inspired by the flavors and aromas of the food carts in Mexico City. They have taken a no fuss approach to Mexican food.


Madero, which had its soft opening in February 2021, is located at 616 E. Carson Ave, in the historic redeveloped area of downtown Las Vegas just east of Las Vegas Blvd. We predict that they will soon be known for their taco offerings - your choice of grilled steak or chicken, oven-roasted pork, shrimp or crispy fish. Paired with black or pinto beans, Mexican rice, guacamole and red or green salsa, the tacos are authentic and delicious. The serving size is just right. Each taco plate makes a full meal loaded with real flavor.


To see Madero’s menu visit, or visit them downtown, or find them on Grubhub, DoorDash, UberEats or Seamless.


Clevelanders Hamburgers - this brand is a fun approach to midwestern comfort food. While named after its signature hamburger (more on that below) it offers several tasty dishes that are familiar to all including fried catfish, shrimp, a meatloaf sandwich, and Philly cheesesteak. The food is simple, flavorful, and filling. It is specifically made for delivery ensuring that when it hits your door, it is still hot and fresh. Clevelanders signature dish is its Clevelander Burger. It is a mouth full of flavor with both a chicken and beef patty stacked with cheese sautéed mushrooms and caramelized onions. The combination of meat patties, melted cheese, and toppings present a totally unique experience for a true burger connoisseur (or anyone who just wants the best burger in town).


To view all of the menu options available at Clevelanders visit or find them on Grubhub, DoorDash, UberEats or Seamless.


El Gallo Breakfast Burritos - this brand is simple and easy to love, offering a menu limited to southwestern breakfast burritos. All the flavor of a great meal rolled in a warm flour tortilla and served with fresh pico de gallo. Instant favorites include the Sausage and Bacon Breakfast Burrito (the name says it all) and the California Breakfast Burrito (chicken, scrambled eggs, avocado, hash browns and spinach all wrapped in a flour tortilla).  Like Clevelanders, El Gallo is made fresh for delivery. Most importantly, these breakfast burritos are served all day so you don’t have to wait until breakfast.

Each of these brands are new to our city, owned by members of the African American business community and provide real food for real people. You can follow them on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date with their menu offerings. Give them a try and share your experience on social media.
