Good food but building lacking

I ate at Gordita's yesterday for a late lunch- the location is great. Close to the sea wall. The food was also good! Tacos de pescado were delicious. Not sure if they make their tortillas, though. The wait staff was quick and all had tablets to write orders down. The place itself though was kind... read more

The service was great! While people will say, "the tortillas weren't made from scratch," everything that went in them, was. If you are going to skimp on something, tortillas is the thing to buy from someone reputable. The insides are what's important.

The food here is good but the night we went they were short staffed and it wasn't a very good experience. We have been eating here for about 2 years now and it has always been great.!!!

I went on my birthday. I was pretty disappinted. $1 a soda and you only get an 8 ounce can. No refills. The staff was nice, but sometimes that just isn't enough. There were so many TV's on full blast and different channels AND the music was playing. I left with a headache. The food was over priced, in my... More

We were in the mood for Mexican but nervous about trying this place based on some reviews. I'm glad we tried anyway, it was a great lunch. We were greeted nicely and treated well during our meal. Several times we were asked if everything was alright and chips were refilled promptly. It also seemed like several locals were there on... More

Staff was rude and didn't know their menu food was very sub par... things meant to be cold were warm and things that should have been warm were cold. Meat was tough and they were out of some items. Tables were dirty and menus covered in food and who knows what. The cash only thing didn't bother us, but we... More

Enjoyed ocean view from patio. My friend had fried whole tilapia and finished the entire thing. I had delicious shrimp/avocado tacos. Very relaxing atmosphere. Cash only but they have ATM machine on sight.

Great little restaruant we found one morning while driving the beach, it was also one of the few places open for breakfast. We were seated promptly on the patio which has a great view of the ocean road and beach. The patio area was clean and the service was very friendly and prompt. The food was great, and the best...

I was a little worried when I read the bad reviews about this little place in my neighborhood. Here is my take. Yes, it is not TexMex. The service was fine. I went on a Saturday early evening. I had no trouble navigating the menu, and the young men and ladies who waited on me were very pleasant and spoke... More

Not an Americanized version of Mexican. Not Tex-Mex. Real Mexican. Quite good. Large servings. We stopped for supper. Wife had hard-shell tacos; I had chimichanga with shredded beef. I ended up bringing part of mine home. Also, the chips and salsa (two kinds: red spicey and green hot) served when you sit down. The servers were very good and friendly.... More
