Not sure why there always seems to be line out the door here, except that people usually get in line where there is a line. I had a veggie burrito... typical beans rice salsa, not worth standing in line for. Maybe this is a place...More

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

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,...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...More
