I joined trip advisor just to submit this review. Let me preface this by saying I love a good street taco. I'll even eat the nasty stuff like brains and tripas. I went to this place based on the great reviews on trip advisor but it was just gross. The food was okay but I honestly can't remember much about... More

It is definitely a hole in the wall! There are about 6 tables inside, two are for 4 the other four will seat 2. I would not have walked in if it wasn't for the people we were with who were very excited to go since they had seen Javier's Beatles performance on YouTube. The walls were covered with Beatles...

We wouldn't dream of a trip to Cabo with visiting Javier. I always love seeing the look on people's faces when I bring them in the door...and when they take their first bite of his amazing tacos. Javier's home was hard hit by the hurricane, and he was very sick for weeks afterwards, so he was not his full exuberant... More

Don't be put off by the fact that it is off the beaten track, or that there are only 6 tables. Leave your ego at the hotel and enjoy the Beatles decor and the aroma from the kitchen that reminds you of college. The chicken, carne and shrimp tacos were my favorite. Feel a couple with beers for under $20.... More

It's small, it's a hole in the wall, ITS AMAZING. Well worth the effort to find. Delicious, flavourful food...pollo and chorizo tacos our favourites. Great service and a nice intimate atmosphere where you talk to other customers. These are tacos that you will go back for!

Tiny, maybe 5 tables, limited menu, only gorditas and tacos, but oh my are they good! The Gordo Lele himself, Javier, is in the kitchen when he's not singing, playing his mini guitar, impersonating his favorites: The Beatles and Sinatra. Go cheer him up, he had a bout with malaria early in the year and the hurricane hurt business, but... More

After reading all the great reviews, I was very excited to try this place. We walked all over trying to find it and finally had to ask for directions. It's true that it's a tiny hole in the wall, decorated with all sorts of Beatles memorabilia. The owner was pleasant and the place was clean. He even had a bottle... More

Had the shrimp and pescado ( fish). A hole in the wall, unique in the world- the owner/ chef Gordo Lele also reglales his guests with Beatles karaoke. Ice cold Pacifico!
