Make this your first stop for Tacos in Cabo San Lucas

Gordo (Javier) Lele makes the BEST tacos in Cabo! We've been to the area many times, tried others and Gordo is always the best. His ingredients are fresh, the food is just perfection and priced incredibly well. Just GO and you won't be disappointed!

I came to Cabo to surf, fish and find the best taco stands in the area. While we ate at some very good ones Gordo Lele's was the best by far. Gordo was as nice as we heard...and his tacos lived up to the reputation. Only mistake was going there the last day so we did not make it back... More

We love to visit Javier at Gordo Lele's. Best tacos in Cabo. We love the entertainment with his Beatles songs!

This is my favorite place I have been since visiting Cabo. Tacos are AMAZING and Javier is dazzling. He gave us a show after lunch singing Sinatra. Definitely a place to visit.

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
