Gordo Lele's was recommended to us by friends when we came to Cabo for the first time several years ago, and we understand why! It is tiny, but Javier has been in business 26 years and he makes the most delicious tacos. Unlike places along...More

Godo's was within walking distance of our hotel and was recommended by another guest of The Bungalows. We were not very hungry but after a glowing recommendation we tried the steak tacos. I enjoyed mine; the steak had an interesting seasoning. My husband did not...More

We discovered Gordo Lele's via Trip Advisor and added it to our list of places to visit in Los Cabos. I am very glad we did. Mr. Lele is a lovely, quiet gentleman who seemed genuinely thankful for our custom. His small room-sized restaurant has...More

Just visited Javier for the third or fourth time in the last 12 or so years. The amazing owner never fails to impress with his serenades. Oh, by the way, the food is great too!

Love, love, love Gordo Lele's! Best tacos anywhere! We went twice last week and were filled by his delicous food and entertained by his singing (Beatles and Michael Buble!)

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.
Just looking for an update on Javier's health and his business. Hopefully he will be back soon, entertaining his guests and friends and serving up the best tacos in Cabos. If anyone is visiting Cabos now or soon, please send us an update. Thanks
