I’m sure the owner is a very nice man, but this place is filthy. Food was just okay, service was friendly, but it’s way too dirty for comfort.

A hidden gem in a tourist area. Tacos are large, made to order, perfectly seasoned and served with avocado, fresh tomato and green chili sauce. Javier (the owner) is wonderful. His dining area shows his love of "The Beatles" and memorabilia hangs on every wall....More

Gordo Lele's is an institution of Cabo San Lucas and deservedly so! I found Gordo Lele's on Trapper's famous Cabo list and was a bit wary by it's appearances: it's an authentic hole in the wall restaurant. Javier/Gordo Lele was not only charming, but had...More

Excellent tacos, excellent prices, restaurant itself, a little iffy but ABSOLUTELY worth it. We go to Cabo almost every year and never miss out on the tacos. My favorite is the chorizo but the steak, fish and shrimp are all excellent as well. Thanks Javier.

Owner-cook-singer Javier Ramos will fill your stomach, eyes, ears and heart with the cheapest eats and most sincere live entertainment in town. His $1.30 chicken tacos and $2.39 carne asada tortas are only outdone by his stylings of Beatles and Elvis tunes.

It really depends on what part of the Marina. But if you’re at the boat ramp, it’s a 10-15 min walk depending on your pace.
