We spent a day sampling tacos at all the recommended spots in Cabo. Without a doubt, the best were at Gordo Lele's. It is small, so be prepared to wait; but it is worth it. Get a couple of beers and sit outside and enjoy...More

I was looking to other reviews and I thought this place was going to be awesome, but it was a big surprise when you enter to a very small place. The tacos were ok. Do not spect to eat in a fancy place.

Came here after reading reviews on trip advisor. When we finally found it, the look on my boyfriend's face was full of skepticism and terror. He asked "Is this it...?" but we both braved it together and stepped forth into this "hole in the wall"...More

Gordo Lele's is most likely a place that I would have walked right by had it not been for the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor. It's a tiny little place with no A/C but plenty of fans & a ton of Beatles posters. My wife and...More

You may simply pass up the place, but you must go inside, sit down, order a taco and a drink and you'll be amazed how good the food is. Gordo Lele's heart of gold is behind it all. We visited 3 yrs ago and have...More

We have never not gone - 10+ years. Great food and great people - Javier is a national treasure that should not be missed. Fish tacos - OMG! Not a bad dish to be had - don't miss it!!

A friend recommend this place and unfortunately we didn't try it until the day before we left. We'll be back to Cabo and we're going here for tacos regularly.

This was our first trip to Cabo and after researching all the not-to-miss places....this made our list. It ended up being our favorite lunch spot of the trip. It's a hole in the wall a few blocks off the main drag - but well worth...More

My husband and I had a late lunch at Gordo's today and were downright giddy at the quality and quantity of food we had for a ridiculously low price. We tried the chicken, beef and fish tacos and one was better than the other. We...More

While the food is great, the 'atmosphere' lacks Gordo's presence.... Just to let the folks here know that Gordo recently lost (passed away) his best friend and companion, his little dog. I am hoping that he would be less depressed than when we saw him...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.
