“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Best tacos ever, anywhere and very inexpensive. We had chicken and shrimp tacos. Don't let the fact that it's a "hole in the wall" stop you. There is a reason TA'ers rave about this place and we have joined the ranks of the ravers. Lunch for $9 for two. Hungry, it'll be $11. Put it on your must try list.

“Cheap and Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

I had the shrimp taco and the steak taco and they were both delicious! The shrimp one was probably my favourite. I'm not sure if it was the food, the owners adorable dog or the beatles memorabilia that sucked me in, but either way, I will be heading back there tomorrow night!

“Cheap, delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I work on a cruise ship and found this place in the Trip Advisor downloadable guide. It was a little bit of a walk from where out ship was offloading people but absolutely worth it. Gordo Leles is a local favorite and I understand why.

Don't be fooled by the appearance of the place. The outside has caged windows and is very unassuming. Walk in and immediately you notice the place is covered in Beatles memorabilia from wall to wall. No AC so it does get warm in there but the owner set up a fan right next to us so that was at least helpful.

The shrimp tacos were my personal favorite even though everyone raves about the beef tacos. The shrimp have more to them and a really nice flavor. I tried the beef, chicken and shrimp tacos. At $1.50 each what do you have to lose??

Will probably go back next time there. Such a great experience for something less touristy.

“Its a Tradition, You Have to Try It!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Had lunch here. Do not let the looks of the outside scare you away (yes, its pretty bad!). What lies inside is what counts! Tried both the beef and shrimp tacos. The beef were our favorite (the flavor is absolutely yummy), although the shrimp were tasty too. There is nothing extravagant about this restaurant. It carries its own charm and Gordo is a really nice guy! Very small, only 4 or 5 tables. We went at mid noon and it was pretty hot in there, only fans in windows to cool it down. The prices are so cheap! DH now says its his favorite place because of its uniqueness. Next time I'm going to try the beef tortas. But its a tradition with all the 'repeaters' to Cabo, so try it!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor & we're so glad we did. The food was unbelievable and the service, very entertaining. We were only I town for a week but managed to go twice. We regret not going daily! Try the carne asada taco! So good!
