“One of the best places to taste the native food.”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

If you want to taste the native food, this one of the better options in the city.
Pozole, Tortas ahogadas, enchiladas, chiles rellenos, all the tradicional dishes from Jalisco can be found here.

If you like pozole this is the place to go. Clean, wide selection in menu and cheap. The pozole is superb.

“So So”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

My dining experience at La Gorda was ok. My food was luke warm. It wasn't the best dining experience and it wasn't the worst. I would probally not return since I had way better experiences at other restaurants in Guadalajara.

“Fabulous Breakfasts”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Loved this place for their delicious breakfasts!

What a way to start your day of sightseeing. Delicious fresh cooked tortillas, scrambled eggs with ham, fresh squeezed orange juice and good quality coffee.

The decor is so lively and colourful, it felt so good to be in this place. Service was excellent and some waiters speak English if you are more comfortable not ordering in Spanish.
