Unlike most Seawall restaurants Gorditas serves up some authentic, tasty and relatively inexpensive Mexican food. The huaraches are my favorite thing on the menu! Great experience with outdoor dining too.

With a view of the beach and beautiful waves this was a great afternoon choice. Nice menu with lots of options. We chose some of the specials to share and were not disappointed. Good chips and salsa. Friendly service. Reasonable prices too.

Situated at a nice location on the island the waitstaff were very friendly. The restaurant is quite unpolished and a bit grungy. Expect a fairly different menu than your typical Mexican restaurant, and no margaritas. Skip the cheese enchiladas.

TexMex food not traditional Mexican. Don't try to order something odd the menu especially if you don't speak Spanish. The quality and taste of the food is average. Service was decent.

We love this place. Every time we are in Galveston we always eat here. We will even drive from Houston just to eat here. The food is great and the prices are extremely reasonable. Tastes very authentic like you would get in Mexico.
