7 Places to Celebrate National Fajita Day (2019) in Las Vegas

In 2016, On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina founded National Fajita Day to celebrate the sizzling Tex-Mex flavor of the fajita!

Fajita, which we have actually expanded to love throughout the United States, was developed by Mexican vaqueros in the early 1930s. Utilizing throwaway cuts of beef, they developed the Fajita. It had not been long prior to they came to be a staple in the area. These cowboys prepared the steak over an open fire or grill. As soon as prepared, they served it with flour or corn tortillas. Fresh Pico de gallo, guacamole and southwestern spices boosted the fajita. Quickly the convenient meal for hardworking cowboys made an introduction to new target markets. The fajita became a destination food in the cooking globe.

As their appeal expanded, fajitas added a vibrant style to Tex-Mex food selections. Crackling platters loaded with bright peppers, onions and also a mouthwatering aroma thrilled customers. Food selection selections beyond tender steak expanded the fajita spectrum. Wonderful shrimp, lean chicken or pork with freshly made tortillas came to tables with fanfare. By the 1980s, the majority of Mexican restaurants in the USA served fajitas. In the contemporary cooking area, lime, cilantro and a wide variety of veggies discover their way into a fajita, as well. Add to that the best flavorings and also mouths truly begin to water!

Here we go.

On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina

5630 Centennial Center Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89149

We don’t usually list/recommend national chains (unless they are really dazzling) but, since On the Border actually created this national day we decided to list them here anyway.

Here’s what Denise said about it:
Once our food got to our table, all I can say is WOW!!!!!! Some of the best Mexican food we’ve had in Las Vegas. The guacamole had just the right spices and citrus. We shared an order of Fajitas with chicken and steak. The chicken was very tender and tasty. The steak not only tasted good but was the most tender I have ever had in fajitas. A very happy accident. Glad we came in.

At Juan’s Flaming Fajitas, the fajitas are literally served flaming upon serving. Hot and tasty. The only downside, you will smell like fajitas for the rest of the day but the food & experience is well worth it.

Frank & Fina’s Cocina

Their original location on W Charleston Blvd (now closed) was the first Mexican restaurant I visited when moving to Las Vegas. It’s been my go-to since. From fajitas, enchiladas and their Chicken Tampiquena are on my rotation and have never failed.
