We always pop by for lunch when we're in Cabo to see Javier. He was off for awhile due to health, but he's back and looking good! Not only is he the sweetest, genuine man to chat with, but he makes great, fresh food as...More

Do not walk past this hole-in-the-wall. Javier makes amazing tortas and tacos, and they cost basically three dollars. If you're lucky he'll sing to you while accompanying himself on tiny toy instruments. It's an unforgettable experience!

Every year we visit Gordo Elle’s for the best shrimp taco in town. Today was our second visit this month. Great as always. Unfortunately someone broke into his shop last night, stole his TV, CD player, CD’s and some cash. He needs everyone’s support getting...More

No trip to Cabo is complete without a visit (or two) to the Gordo Lele. His tacos are the best, his beer is cold and his floor show is not to be missed! After a few months off for heart surgery, Javier is back at...More

Javier is a great man with a humongous heart. We didn't have time for food, so I can't comment on that. (although my father has eaten here many times and loves it) I can certainly say this gentleman can sing and entertain though. My kids...More

This restaurant is an absolute must when you are in Cabo. The entertainment is fabulous and the food is really light and tasty. If you're in a group (max 12) this is a great restaurant to go to for lunch and is ridiculously inexpensive.

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.
