It's all about the carnitas. But bean and cheese super is satisfying in every way We take hrs to go and add salsa on top and creams on the side on a plate....yum

I really like the food at this place, but don't like the workers bad attitudes. They always seem to be in a bad mood. seem to be very arrogant at times. Other than that, the Burritos are pretty good. Just order and go, but don't try to hold a conversation, because you you won't get far.

Parking: Street parking - can be difficult at peak times. Atmosphere: None. It's a taqueria with tiny tables and tiny chairs, and they're not comfortable. And on cold days the entire place is freezing - they keep the door open. Get your food to go like most everyone else. On a nice day, walk down Solano Avenue til you find... More

Small hole in the wall establishment with great basic burritos and tacos. Guacamole is hit or miss. Can eat-in but mostly takeout.

Gordos has been my favorite burrito place for years. Flavors all blend wonderfully- no bad choices, I generally order the chicken or carnitas . Have noticed that on weekends there is a different crew and that the burritos are a little sloppy But still worth the lines- best burritos in the Bay area

Gordon's is an institution. Lines out the door at lunch and dinner. Why I don't know. If the food is mediocre does it make a difference that there's a lot of it? Have never understood the appeal. Uncomfortable seats, an indifferent if not surly attitude, and lardy food don't make for a great dining experience. Those who speak Spanish and... More

I have been eating at the various Gordon's around the bay area for over 18 years. The one on Solano is pretty good. I visited this past Sunday night, at 6:30, and they had one guy working the line. It took half an hour to get a taco, and a burrito. The reason I go here is that they are... More

I eat at this place regularly. People are gruff but the food is good. I usually get the super burrito. Nothing totally amazing, but always consistently good.
