I stopped by La Gorda unexpectedly after walking around all morning and found a delicious meal at a good price. There was a short line but Cesar the host kept the tables turning muy rapido. I noted other diners enjoying savory tacos, generous bowls of pozole and platillos of enchiladas. After asking my polite and efficient waiter about vegetarian dishes, Cesar approached and suggested the sopes plate with rajas (peppers), frijoles (beans) and dos quesos (2 cheeses). I ordered this tasty dish plus a tall, cold spicy Michelada and found it just right for lunch along with the warm gratis chips and flavorful salsa. ¡Gracias La Gorda, me gusta!

this is a good place to have a good breakfast. The food is fresh and the price is good. I don't try lunch or dinner only breakfast.

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.

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.
