Every year we visit Gordo Elle’s for the best shrimp taco in town. Today was our second visit this month. Great as always. Unfortunately someone broke into his shop last night, stole his TV, CD player, CD’s and some cash. He needs everyone’s support getting...More

We had the most fun visiting Gordo Lele's Restaurant. His tacos are delicious, salsa and guacamole so fresh and flavorful. Part of what makes the experience so unique is the owner Javier. He cooks for you, sings for you, and truly wants you to have...More

A trip to Gordo Lele’s is always a highlight of our Cabo vacation. He has good food and will serenade you while you eat it. It’s always fun.

Authentic Mexican food can't say enough from home made tortillas to fresh fish salsa and guacamole! Great service with a smile!

This restaurant is an absolute must when you are in Cabo. The entertainment is fabulous and the food is really light and tasty. If you're in a group (max 12) this is a great restaurant to go to for lunch and is ridiculously inexpensive.

What a sweet owner who serenaded us with his singing of three songs. This place was very small and scorching hot, but he was so sweet that we decided to stay. The food was good and the entertainment was great. What a sweet man. Highly...More

We saw him June 15, and he looked tired. He smiled when we asked about his health, but he had obviously lost weight. He said the "government" was the reason he couldn't sell beer right now, but the tacos are as good as ever.
