Like many locals, I've been eating here for well over 20 yrs. And like In-And Out Burger, the menu here never changes. The food itself also never changes--portion sizes are good and the taste is better than Chipotle, IMHO. The prices HAVE increased over the...More

Gordo's Solano does have a few tables, but it's more of a Mexican take-out place. Burritos are top sellers either regular or super sized and available with several kinds of wraps. You'll be asked the size, the kind of meat (chicken, pork or beef), the...More

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...More
