Always a stop when we are in Tally. I ususally get the "Media Noche sandwiche and the wife likes the chicken wrap. The fries are the standard cuban shoestring ...alot of them in an order, so sharing is definitely a must. Grab a soda or tea and get your free take home Gordo's plastic cup that is a great gift...

Was surprised at the poor quality meal. Perhaps just a bad night to go there? My daughter and I were in Tallahassee for history fair and saw a big good reviews and it was nearby. We are very familiar with quality Cuban food. I ordered a sangria which tasted something like a powdered mix. Worst I've ever had. My bistec... More

We enjoy going to Gordos often. The food is great. The servers are friendly. And it's just a fun place to be.

So I stayed in Tallahassee again and had the pleasure of been taken out to 'somewhere different'. Admittedly I've never been to Cuba, but have always fancied the idea and now even more so. If the atmosphere and food is anything to go by as a taster of Cuban cusine then it's a must for my bucket list. Great food,... More

Heard so much and just had to go to Gordos today! It's so upbeat and happy with great service! The Croquetas were a great starter to share. The Cubano with fries, black beans and rice was enough for a couple of ladies to share. Highly approved! I had the grilled Pan Con Lechon which was very tasty. Black beans and... More

Make sure you go to the Gordos off of Timberlane. Food is good & flavorful. Grilled cheese is amazing. Wish they had soup options. We have tried several items the few times we have been. Love the plantains. Decent sized portions. Side note, fries come out very salty.

Stopped for lunch. Their assorted empanada plate was pretty good as an appetizer, but the rest of the food was a disaster, including what should have been a signature Cuban Sandwich - which in their case consisted of mainly sliced deli ham and a lot of mustard.

I have been going here for years and they by far have the best Cuban in town. There fries are also the best when they are fresh. Sometimes they can be a little soggy which puts me in a bad mode. Best way to eat the Cuban is to mix the Gordo sauce with the hot sauce and dip the... More

Gordo's is great, and they are one of my favorite places to dine at in Tallahassee. They make an awesome veggie cuban (with the switch of cucumbers and pickles for ham and pork). Their Yuca Friters are amazing, the fries are good, the coffee is great. The space is often crowded, and the service is always slow (I assume the... More
