This is a clean, cheap and yummy place to eat! The chicken was kind of bland and dry. The pork was pretty good. Shrimp burrito special was great. And the fish tacos were amazing!!!

We read about Gordito's on TripAdvisor so when we got to Cabarete, we stopped in 3 times during our 1 week stay. You couldn't ask for better service, great conversation with the owners, and lots of gluten free choices (which is much appreciated when 2 from our group have Celiac Disease). The servings are delicious, generous, and inexpensive. We also... More

i went there with a friend and i expected more, yes fresh food and good quality. but i was expecting the best burrito of my life and it wasnt. its cheap and its a "good spot", even its 20 meter away from the main road of cabarete where all the motos and cars stop with horn every 20 seconds.

The Burrito Bowl is a great meal when you are tired of the usual. Its filled with lots of fresh veggies and savory beans and spices. Its very filling and a great value. Of course there are lots of other wonderful options at Gorditos - I've never had a bad meal there. Its one of the locals favorites.

I had the vegetarian bowl with beans, and it was ample food for me to hold for 2 meals. Others had the tacos, the vegetarian bowl with vegetables, bean burrito and... More

Great place to grab quick, yummy and reasonably priced lunch. The Mambo Fish Taco is delicious. My Husband gets the pork bowl with spicy shredded pork,rice,beans crema and special sauce...it's gone in a flash. The freshly made nachos are a excellent sidekick. Add one of their ice cold beers and enjoy. There's really no down-side except for limited seating inside.... More

The fish tacos are great. We have been there at least 5 times on our trip already and go back almost every other day. Lots to choose from.
