Appetizers and main course were delicious. They make really good cocktails too. Service was also good.

“Great value, fresh and speedy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Short queue for top quality fresh Mexican food, bring it out to the table yourself and enjoy with a cold Presidente.

“Best Fish Tacos in Cabarete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We have been in Cabarete for a month, and have eaten at Gorditos 4 times. The price is the cheapest and the food is the best. Only 50 RD for tacos, 80 RD for fish tacos, and only 75 RD for a Presidente!

The owner is a nice guy and will be happy to chat with you. Fast service. great price, tasty food. We just love it. They are opening a new dinner restaurant right beside this one, called Gorditos Cantina. We are definitely going to give it a try!

“Deliciouse and good amount”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The food is good and stuff are very friendly. Good size of tacos and burritoes are HUGE! Little bit out side town but walking diatance. We had to take a taxi (our hotel was other side of town) but worth it. Owner is a great guy. Oh, price was good,too. We were stiing inside because too hot to sit outside for us. They always keep tables are clean. Want to go back again.

“FRESH, fast and fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We returned for our 2 week vacation to Cabarete and remembered seeing this restaurant but didn't get a chance last year to try it (our mistake) but we remedied this quite a few times during our stay.

The food is fresh and the restaurant is a favorite with the surf schools where you can get anything from vegetarian tacos, enchiladas and bowls to speciality meals offered daily. it's all good and all fresh!

While we were there the owner opened an evening restaurant with more dinner type meals to sit and linger over with a Presidente or mojito. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to try it out, but we would assume that it's as good as its parent company we patronized as soon as the doors opened at 1130 am (and that is the actual time you can walk in the door to order food, unlike some Dominican restaurants where they open at 11 and food isn't ready until they are, but it's island time so we don't worry too much).

The staff are friendly and work hard to get the orders out as quickly as the customers hit the order area. Food is great we had almost everything on the menu and it was all good.

Glad to have a good, fast, healthy restaurant to get a break from the Kite Beach restaurant row foods.
