We heard amazing things...about the Beatles, hole in the wall location, and the food. The food part was way off. First, there was no air conditioner. It was about 95 degrees inside, and the smell of Javier's cologne was nauseating. Plates were covered in press n seal wrappers, and what was served looked incredibly unappetizing. piles of "meat" on the... More

We could not resist the great reviews and made our way to see Gordo's. What a cool place! Not large but a unique and fun hang out. Walls are plastered with fascinating Beatles paraphernalia, and Elvis. The food - well I agree, he serves some of the best tacos we have ever had. And so incredibly inexpensive. We will be... More

This is the place I would recommend for everyone visiting Cabo. The food is the best! If you can't find it, keep searching, it is hard to find. Ask people where it is. What ever you do, get here. Enjoy the food, it may be a dive, but it is truly some of the best food you will eat in... More

OK, this is the smallest "restaurant" I have ever been in. The Beetle themed décor was over fun to look at while we sat at one of three tables smashed into a very small room off the main drag. The owner is a transplant that loves the Beetles and serenaded us with several Beetles covers. So fun and something you... More

We have been visiting Cabo for 10 years, and this is a gem we had not yet discovered. Eclectic atmosphere and love the Beatles and Elvis nostalgia. But - the tacos! So much flavor, we each savored every bite. And the Sincronizada, to die for! Incredible flavors at such a reasonable price. This will be a go to restaurant for... More

A hole in the wall- yes if you blink you will walk right past it. Owner is a warm loving individual who is a great cook and loves to sing,,beatles-elvis-frank sinatra, etc.... so much joy. Javier lost his home in September 2014 to the hurricane. Had a foot or more of water in his restaurant --but he is still compassionate... More

The restaurant is small, just a store front really & there is no A/C, but trust me.........IT'S WORTH IT!! We were a party of 6 and had an hour wait (there was only one person working) but it was worth the wait as the food was excellent! The beers were ice cold, the al pastor & carne asada tacos were...

As usual, we will never be disappointed with Javier at Gordo's. We order tacos, fish, chicken and / or beef, a soda, and a beer. All less that $10. The food is quite filling and wonderful, but the entertainment - priceless! Thanks again, Javier.

If you blink, you miss it, but it is one of the best places for tacos in Cabo! I have stopped in at least once in the past 3 - 4 years and have never had a bad meal. The service is great and friendly staff.
