“Excellent food, service could be better”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

La Gorda is one of the best Mexican food restaurants in Guadalajara. You won't be dissapointed. I recommend the "pozole doble carne" and "tostadas de pollo". They are so good! Nevertheless, the service could be a little bit better. They are always crowded, so be patient, they don't take reservations, you may need to make a line, which is more or less fast. This is a must if you are in Guadalajara. There are different locations, but the best is the one located at Ninos Heroes avenue.

“¡La Gorda, es Buena!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

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!

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