A 'hole in the wall' not to be missed in Cabo. Just up the street from the Jungle Bar, Javier 'Gordo' Lele owns and operates a Beatles themed restaurant. The place is very small, but we have always managed to find a table. The locals consider him to be the 5th Beatle. He makes tasty tortas and... read more

I know this place gets great reviews. And it took a lot to find it. No sign out front. A round man was in the doorway looking sort of grouchy. We asked do you know where Gordo Lele's is -- he mumbled this is it. We went in....very tiny. No one there. No Beatles music playing. He had no wig... More

Little hole in the wall with excellent tortas. Gordo Lele is a unique character- the 5th Beatle! Always a must stop for us in Cabo!!

Javier is one of a kind. Ready to please. I think hubby and I ordered one of every taco. Make sure you ask for the selection of beer. :)

This is by far one of the most weird eateries. You like too feel like you have entered the twilight zone (in a good way). Get ready for your very own cabaret show with your waiter and chef singing to songs from Elvis

We just tried Gordo Lele's for the first time. Man! Best Ever!! Been thinking of when we can fly back, just to go pig out at Gordo's. All the Beatles memorabilia is too cool. Gordo must collect the stuff eight days a week!

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!
