Seems very authentic and fresh. Perfect to hit the spot if your looking for Cuban. Sit outside if you want to enjoy a nice weather day.

We have found it difficult to locate authentic Cuban food/restaurants if not in Miami and were pleasantly surprised when visiting Gordon's recently. It was a football weekend, so the place was crowded, however, service was very good, and the beer was very cold! We will...More

Three people walk into a restaurant... We had our choice of tables on a quiet Saturday pre-lunch rush. We were quickly greeted and served our iced tea. Ordered a Chicken Philly, La Gordita and an El Gordo, along with croquetas and fries for the table....More

Great lunch! This authentic Cuban food restaurant is excellent. It takes me back to my grandmother & mom's cooking growing up in Puerto Rico. Food is absolutely delicious. The arroz con pollo (chicken & rice) was perfect.

Not sure how this place stays in business. The waitress was more worried about her boyfriend at the bar than us! She completely missed my wife's order...so no food came out to her. She never came to fill up my drink. I had to go...More

We've been to Gordo's at least 10 times during the four years our son attended FSU, and every time was a winner. Gordo's lives up to what it's supposed to be: a laid back, inexpensive, tasty Cuban restaurant. For that it gets 5 stars. Service...More
