Not sure how this place stays in business. The waitress was more worried about her boyfriend at the bar than us! She completely missed my wife's order...so no food came out to her. She never came to fill up my drink. I had to go and ask her for a refill. The service was sooo slow that it took su... More

We've been to Gordo's at least 10 times during the four years our son attended FSU, and every time was a winner. Gordo's lives up to what it's supposed to be: a laid back, inexpensive, tasty Cuban restaurant. For that it gets 5 stars. Service can be slow at times, but is always friendly and attentive. Food is consistently good.... More

I came here with a group of friends for graduation weekend so everything was packed. it's free for all seating but we managed it to get a table fairly quickly. The waitress was a college student and very nice. Overall decent food and okay service definitely considering how busy it was.

Gordo's is a great place to enjoy a cold drink, great food, and friendly servers. Sometimes they have live music on the outside deck. We go to Gordo's often and take all of our friends from out of town there to eat and drink. (And watch the college kids.)

Me and my friend went here on March 24th (Friday). The hours are supposed to be open until 1am. We arrived around 12:15 and sat at the bar. We were going to order food and a drink from the outside bartender but my friend wanted to move seats because there is a security camera right in your face when you... More

If you like Cuban food, and why wouldn't you like Cuban food...this is definitely the restaurant to go to! The atmosphere is that of a dive bar/restaurant, but that just adds to the personality. The food is amazing...not just the Cuban Sandwich...try something else! The staff is very personable and the prices are great. We sat outside on a hot... More

A good spot for their hamburgers and mahi fingers. The mahi fingers are a must for me each time I visit this place. The decor is typical of college town setting, but the food makes up for the lack of appearance.

Drove by, looked interesting! We asked a woman seated next to us for a recommendation. She said all the sandwiches were great. My hubby had the Cubano and I had empanadas. We Shared. Great choice!

This review deals with the nrothsdie location. The food is good and delivered at a fair price. Thursday is craft beer day so if you're a beer drinker that's the day to go!! The shopping center is busy so one might not be able to park directly at the door.

Thank paul t
