Whilst in Cabo San Lucas a visit to Gordo Lele's is an absolute must! Great Tacos & Tortas and an uplifting experience. The place is small and intimate, completely covered in Beatles album covers & photos. It has an almost 60's coffee shop or folk artist cafe feel about it. To say it is Bohemian is an understatement !! Gordo... More

This is the worst food I've eaten in Cabo in the last ten years. Warm beer, raw tortillas , terrible fish and shrimp. Would not recommend to anyone. Place very run down.

all meet in a bar and the story line becomes interesting and eclectic. Great taco in a dive and Javier will surprise you with his entertaining tribute.....Great way to spend a lazy Cabo afternoon

Not to mention I think the world of the owner, Javier. My favorite is the chicken taco but they are all great. You will not leave there hungry. I can barely eat 2 tacos. Javier will also put on a Beatles mini concert if you ask him to. It's definitely worth your time.

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!
