We walked off the beaten path to find this little burrito shack everyone raves about. Inside the three tables were packed with happy customers. The first table: college kids making their second visit of the week. The second table: a father and his three adult sons who stop for burritos before ever dive. The third table: that was us! We watched the owner making each and every burrito and then gab with the customers! He joked about sports with the divers and said goodbye when the college kids left! Like a friend. And we were friends with this delightfully humble and happy Mexican man before we left too. He told us he couldn't beeline his little burrito shack was number one on trip advisor and how three years earlier he was making just $15 a day cooking for someone else when he and his wife who is American decided to become business owners. He told us how he laughs at the photo on Facebook of his first burrito and how he perfected the craft. And that he gets up at 5am each morning to have "a lot of coffee" before he drives to the grocery store for fresh produce and meat. His children accompany him and he drops them off at school before heading to his little shack to make fresh pulled pork, chicken, beef, fish and to cut up the most buttery avocados and cheese. I'm not sure if I loved the burrito or him more. Definetly one of our favorite stops in a week long visit to Cozumel!

Nice price, size, and flavor. Great hospitality. Owner should look to expand since it is a very small place.

We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and knew that we had to visit Burrito Gordito. We were very happy that we did. Although a few people didn't know where it was, we did seem to find it fairly easily. It would've been smart to have written down the address since we didn't have access to our smart phones in Mexico.

Burritos were awesome. Best refried beans I've ever tasted and amazing hot sauce. I can't remember the owner's name, but he was awesome! He even kept it open for us (warning - it closes at 3 pm). It was nice to have a recommendation of a good local place.

It was a nice neighborhood to wander around. We even went into a little local grocery store and bakery as well. I would love to try the breakfast burritos when we go back.

Burritos Gorditos is open for breakfast and lunch only. Really nice guy making really good burritos. An d he speaks great English. This is a locals favorite. Super easy to find. It's one block off the main road between Calle (Street) 2 and 4. Calle 2 is the one right in front of the big coral reefs monument (arched sculpture with divers). If your driving, Calle 2 runs one way toward the water, Calle 4 runs one way away from the water. Just find a place to park that is not marked red or E with a slash through it. Enjoy!
