Heard so much and just had to go to Gordos today! It's so upbeat and happy with great service! The Croquetas were a great starter to share. The Cubano with fries, black beans and rice was enough for a couple of ladies to share. Highly approved! I had the grilled Pan Con Lechon which was very tasty. Black beans and... More

Make sure you go to the Gordos off of Timberlane. Food is good & flavorful. Grilled cheese is amazing. Wish they had soup options. We have tried several items the few times we have been. Love the plantains. Decent sized portions. Side note, fries come out very salty.

I have been going here for years and they by far have the best Cuban in town. There fries are also the best when they are fresh. Sometimes they can be a little soggy which puts me in a bad mode. Best way to eat the Cuban is to mix the Gordo sauce with the hot sauce and dip the... More

Gordo's is great, and they are one of my favorite places to dine at in Tallahassee. They make an awesome veggie cuban (with the switch of cucumbers and pickles for ham and pork). Their Yuca Friters are amazing, the fries are good, the coffee is great. The space is often crowded, and the service is always slow (I assume the... More

The food is by far the worst cuban food I've ever eaten. Instead try Habana's Boardwalk Cafe off of Mahan. The food is much better there.
