We've been eating these tacos for nearly 15 years, since before Gordo Lele's was in an actual shop, when the man had an outside alley-side cook area with a Boom box and a push broom for a microphone! Every year we head back down south for some Tacos and beer. Each time we bring someone new with us to Cabo,... More

Small time restaurant with cheap good food. El pastor street tacos and chorizo are two of my favorites in Mexico. Gordo le le makes some darn good chorizo, and marinated chicken. Put it in a taco or torta with his corn salsa and creamy guacamole and rinse and repeat... Tell u have to go home

This is truly a unique experience. It is not for everyone. The place is a small ordinary shop packed with posters of Paul McCartney and other Beatles paraphenalia. This charming and loving guy can will not only cook you an amazing taco plate but he will break into song and sing you a version of your favorite Beatles song acapello.

Don't be scared when you first walk in this little hole in the wall taco joint covered in Beatles posters. The tacos were delicious and the ambience is incredible. We were the only customers at the time and my husband asked the owner, Javier, what his favorite Beatles song was. Instead of just naming a song he sang it to... More

Heard about this place from a friend. Once I found it I was a little leery about going in. As soon as we walked in a customer said, "Trust me, the best shrimp tacos ever." She was right. This is definitely a MUST DO in Cabo!

Javier or Gordo Lele as he is affectionately called has been making tacos in Cabo for many, many years. He is so well known by TripAdvisor friends that a few years ago we pitched in and got him a new place to set up. He had lost his old little place of business and T/A friends came to the rescue!...

Always on our MUST do list, to eat Torta's and listen to Gordo Sing the Beatles! Better than a Vegas tribute! He is such a character. The food is good. This is definitely a little hole in the wall you are skeptical to eat in at first. But we have never gotton sick or had bad food from here. So... More

went here for a taco run during our late afternoon snack. this place is literally a hole-in-the-wall with delicious tacos! it is very small and stuffy, but littered with beatles memorabilia. i was only 1 of 2 customers present, so i did not get to witness the beatles performances as everyone else mentions. ordered the beef, chicken, fish, and shrimp...

We look forward to going there every time we come to Cabo. If you have not been there, you must find it and enjoy the tacos. The fish, chicken, chorizo, and beef are all excellent. And of course, if you're a Beatle fan, he'll sing for you as well.

I had the Lele special torta and a steak taco, while my girlfriend had the ham and cheese torta and taco with pastor (I think). Not sure if the tacos were just mediocre or if the tortas were just so damn good that it completely overshadowed the tacos. I love sandwiches and this is one of the best I've ever... More
