We love Gordo Lele - I can never choose between the torta de milanesa and the shrimp tacos, so I go twice. It's a small "hole in the wall" with an inexpensive small menu, friendly staff, and entertainment (the owner/cook sings Beatles tunes while you eat).

Love stopping by at least once each year and enjoying some of the best Tortas and Tacos Cabo has to offer. The place is hard to find and somewhat small but worth the find. We were able to cram all twelve of in and had room for more. I love the way he cooks the meats in the Tortas it... More

Don't miss this true hole-in-the wall restaurant! Just imagine, Javier, the overweight owner serenading your delicious tacos with Beatles tunes!

Amazing shrimp/bacon tacos and ice cold beer... there was literally ice in our beer. We were serenaded and treated like family. Prices are more than reasonable.

We had heard about Gordo Lele's for a few years and finally went and checked it out. A definite hole in the wall with tons of Beatle memorabilia to look at. The tacos were good and the entertainment was priceless. One of the highlights of our trip!

Tacos were good. What makes eating here memorable is Javier singing and the small, basic 60's throw-back atmosphere. We had dinner here. This would be a great place for lunch.

Don't be scared! It's safe and delicious! Tacos are amazing. Small but he makes everyone's order himself. He will sing the Beatles to you...

There were 6 adults and 6 young ladies in our party. We sang so loudly that a couple of young guys stopped their cab and came in and joined us. The shrimp tacos were THE BEST I've ever had!!!
