Went with Tripadvisor to give Gordo Lele's a try. Wow. You definitely get your money's worth at this place. My husband and I got two HUGE chicken tacos for around $4.00 pp. This place is a little dive decorated in more Beatles paraphernalia than I have ever seen. This man is a super duper Beatles fan, to say the least... More

*** Let this be a lesson, never judge a book by it's cover... The name of the restaurant is Gordo Lele's, and translates into english as "Much LOVE"... Which is very fitting as the experience is all about "family, love and peace" as told to us by Javier himself. This is a true hole in the wall restaurant (with only... More

I wanted a sure thing food-wise during my recent Cabo trip so I diligently did some research on Trip Advisor for yummy eateries. Gordo's popped up high on the list so I knew I had to give it a shot and boy, I'm SO glad I did. The place literally looks like a hole in the wall but looks can... More

The owner, Javier, is a sweet and humble man. We ate there two years ago and our best memory of Cabo was him singing Beatles tunes and the greatest Tacos I've ever had.. This past June we got to go back to Cabo for a week and the first place we ate was Gordo Lele's. I brought Javier a couple... More

We absolutely loved this place! We wish we would have found it sooner! I had a shrimp and chicken taco and was stuffed to the brim. Javier serenades you with Beatles tunes while you enjoy your food. As soon as you get to Cabo, ask where this place is so you can enjoy it too!

I went for the first time this year- and while food can get expensive, Gordo lele's is extremely reasonable and gives a large portion! I had one shrimp taco (wonderful) and it filled up my whole plate, piled up- got full off of one taco! Tortas are HUGE! A little hole in the wall, but the food is great and... More

We just got back from Cabo yesterday. There has been a notable increase in restaurant prices since our last trip two years ago. However, some restaurants are still inexpensive and quite good. Gordo Lele's was GREAT! We went twice this year. In past years we use to go to Gordo's for a snack and a beer while walking around that... More

Gordo Lele's is one of those places you just can't miss while your in Cabo! This hole in the wall, just off the beaten path is amazing! We ended updating there twice! The tacos are FANTASTIC - both the shrimp and chicken were my favorites- and the guacamole...WOW. Where else can you find the best tacos, eat in a small... More

We stopped here in a rather large group at first I though oh gosh this doesn't look good, but our friends assured us he's the best. It is a hole in the wall, but he makes the best tacos!
