A great, reasonably priced, Mexican restaurant in one of Seattle's many friendly, walkable neighborhoods. It's motto is "healthy Mexican food" and we found just that. The food was well prepared and not greasy or oily. Gordito's is popular, for good reason, and there's typically a line at the counter to the door, but there is ample seating and we've never... More

Open again after the neighborhood's gas leak explosion. It was closed for about 6 months while they made the building safe again. The inside seems different, but the food (Mexican) is the same and very good. There is a good flow of customers, but at peak times you may have to wait a bit. Portions can be huge.

Often before attending a performance at Taproot Theatre, we like going to Gorditos for dinner. The food is consistently good and the portions are ample. Beware: they big burrito is GIANT... split it.

Awesome place! I split the burrito with my boyfriend and it was plenty for the both of us. This burrito is so big you need a fork to eat it, you couldn't possibly try to eat this thing with your hands. Also the whole place is covered with pictures of newborn babies next to the no joke baby sized burrito.... More

The fubbsy, comfortable, neighborhood joint literally is decorated with photos that prove that those burritos are as big as a baby. But the servings aren't just big--the food tastes fresh and well prepared. The furnishings are well-used, but everything is very clean. You order at the counter, pay for the food, which they bring out to you. The servers are... More

I started going to Gorditos when I lived in Seattle in the 90s. Fast forward to 2015 when I made a return trip with my son. I put Gordito's on my must-do list, and the joint does not disappoint. OK, its not fancy. Its usually crowded and loud. But the food is excellent and just as I remembered. I will... More

A friend suggested this place so I went when I was in Seattle. People were very friendly. I had the baby sized burrito, and yes... it really is the size of a newborn! But size isn't everything, the food was also very very tasty! I had the burrito with chicken and guacamole. Food also came very quick. Overall I was... More
