I would’ve never imagined that a place in the Dominican Republic would’ve had Mexican level quality tacos! The fish tacos are hands down some of the absolute best I’ve had. Very very yummy and recommended to anyone. Service was amazing too!

We were at Gorditos today and the owner is AMAZING! He was there, brought a little dog plate with water for our dog, the beers were deliciously cold and the tex mex food was good. Please note it is *not* Mexican food, but really good...More

I was looking for something quick when I first arrived in Cabarete and was directed to Gorditos. I had a fish burrito bowl. It was SO fresh and absolutely delicious! Totally recommend for a great lunch in town.
