Really tasty tacos. And owner is super friendly. In addition to great food and amazing value, he also gave our son a small toy truck!

Have been there about five times now. Bev sure to have Javier sing. Tortas are great. Tacos are good. And the price is right.

I found this "Lil hole in the wall" through Trip Advisor and visited Cabo San Lucas this past week (May 16th, 2011) while on a Carnival Cruise. Did a lil research on the exact location of this place it it takes literally about a 10 min walk from the Marina. Kitty corner from Giggling Marlin. The place is exactly as... More

I go here every time I'm in Cabo. I've been going to Cabo for the past 7 years and I only missed Gordo Lele's in the first year. Once you go you'll be a fan as well. I've tried all the other taco places and they're just not as good. The only minor problem is that Javier(the owner) doesn't have... More

This is a must while visiting Cabo. We ate there at least 1/2 dozen times this past trip (we were ther for 3 weeks). Great food and very inexpensive. Tiny place but right downtown so it is easy to get to. If you are lucky, Javier (Gordo) will don his Beatles wig and sing for you. You will really enjoy... More

Here is a great little hole in the wall behind the weeds...LOL We have always had time to pick up lunch from Gordo in the 15 plus years of coming down to Cabo ! Order the Torta Special for 50 pesos and it's piled high with meat and cheese.

This place was great. We went there 2 times during our stay in Cabo. The food is great and the entertainment was good also. It is a hole in the wall but those are the best places. Looking forward to going back!

Ok so third time in cabo. After reading all the reviews and other suggestions I figured it's about time to try it. Wow was I let Down. Keep in mind it might be the fact that I read into the hype but really I think it's lessons learned. Sum it up can't trust reviews by no mexicans. Service was great... More

One place you cannot miss when you visit Cabo! I read about El Gordo Lele's here on Trip Advisor before our trip & while in Cabo someone recommended it to us. We took a taxi there. We looked at it from the outside & decided we'd pass. As we turned to walk away, four women were going in. They insisted... More

Undoubtedly the best part of our trip to Cabo. Overall, I was very disappointed with Cabo San Lucas, way overpriced and mediocre at best. This place was on our radar but unfortunately we waited until the very last day to go there. I wish we had gone there sooner! The food was authentic, amazingly priced and the entertainment was second... More
