Tacos were awesome as usual. I got the beef tacos and my wife had beef and chicken. Very delicious. Service was on Mexican time because Javier was the only one there but the wait was well worth it. Javier is looking good and we are glad he is back as we missed him last year. We will be back this... More

Took us awhile to track Javier down as he has changed locations. We met him nearly 26 years ago when he had first opened El Gordo Lele. His taco stand became a favorite hang out for us as it was cheap and delicious. Javier became a good friend and many of our happiest memories from the year we lived in... More

This is a fantastic place to have tacos. I can't wait to go back in February. We missed him last time because he was closed for health reasons.

Went to Gordo Lele's in 12/23/16 only to find It was closed. The sign said Javier was gone for about a month (over the holidays) to have surgery. Missing the best tacos Cabo! Wishing Javier well and a speedy recovery!

I know Javier for many years, and he is a very good friend. Don't expect a fancy restaurant, his place is very humble, but the taste is extraordinary! Definitely the best tacos in all Mexico.

The big man is back! Stopped in for our usual, and everything's still as it was, a hole in the wall with great tacos! Can't beat the pricing either! This is a must experience while in Cabo!

We first went to Gordo Lele's 4 years ago and this was a must visit during our recent trip. The tacos are still amazing!! The shrimp and beef tacos are our favorite. We will continue to visit every time we come to Cabo.

Best tortas and tacos in Cabo. Small menu, everything is amazing, 2 tacos will usually do it. He marinates the meats and sets them aside from even the most talked about spots on the beaten path.

I had read a lot of reviews on this place and how great Javier was. I was disappointed when we got there and Javier wasn't there. This was in January, he was visiting a sick friend in northern Mexico. The food was still good, but the experience wasn't what I was expecting. Hopefully he will be there this next trip!
