If your wondering what Cabo was like before it became a worldwide destination visit Gordo Lele's. You will find the warmest, kindest,most humble individual who aims to please his longtime customers. The tacos are handmade by Javier and he is a gracious host. The shrimp tacos are to die for as are the chicken. You wont find a cheaper meal... More

Great tacos, very reasonable, with great atmosphere.....ok, it depends on your idea of "great atmosphere". It has alot of character and Javier still makes the best tacos! Great family time in cabo and wouldn't be the same without a trip to Gordo Lele's!

What can I say -hard to time finding it but I used my GPS small little sign on top figured it out. Very small sort of like a mom-and-pop kind of deal. Really a hole in the wall. Scary at first. But the wife and kids loved the tacos especially the chicken. I couldnt really enjoy of the because anxiety.

We were a party of 8 so we pretty much took almost every seat in the joint. It's a little hole in the wall but hey Javier makes great taco's for cheap. Don't let the interior deter you. It was a great experience for us :)

We stopped by in March but were sad to see Javiar had been ill and it was closed. Great to see him back again, serving probably the freshest, best tacos in town! We'll be back maybe Dec, hoping you're up to a song or two also? Cheers, Pat and Shannon

Felt like we had to try this gem off the beaten path (thanks Trip Advisor). We were the only ones there late afternoon, fantastic food and great conversation. Also enjoyed hearing a great Beatles cover by Javier. Plan on grabbing lunch here at least once during your trip, it's definitely a hole-in-the-wall, but a great one.

After reading about Gordo Lele's on Trip Advisor, I knew we wanted to stop for lunch. Walking down the street we walked right past it. Had to double back and were we glad we did. Best tacos in town and so inexpensive! Will not miss it next time in Cabo

We were told by Sergio to go to his dad's restaurant. One year later we found it and will return on every trip to Cabo. Gordo Lele's is a delightful experience, he is such a kind man, plays Beatles music and will lip sync as he had recently lost his voice. He has the eyes of an old soul. Truly... More

This place is definitely off the beaten path but worth it... Not a fancy place at all... Casual and laid back... We were able to experience some live music while enjoying some great food at a great price.. It is very small and can get crowded. I would go again without any hesitation...
