Extremely unique tacos, you'll never find food like this anywhere. Very good and fresh. If you are lucky, the owner will sing for you. It will be a Beatles song.

Here's what you do: order the chorizo taco and the carne asada taco, with a Pacifico. Look at Gordo's crazy Beatles posters and enjoy your tacos. Pick which one you like the best and order two more, with possibly another Pacifico. You will leave incredibly happy and your wallet will be about $10 lighter.

Wait a couple days and go back. Repeat.

And as some others said, I'm not crazy about his shrimp tacos either. But damn, you've got other incredible choices...and I have not even tried a torta yet. We'll be in Cabo for NYE and I'll report back.

We have had tacos from one end of Cabo to the other. This place is the best.

Gordo Lele's tacos were delicious. I had the shrimp, beef, and chicken taco and they were all delicious and plentiful. My favorite was the chicken but each one was great. If going to Cabo, you have to go to this spot. He asked us where we are from and once we said New York he started singing to us. Very nice man. Great experience.

Reading a bunch of reviews about how great this place was sent me there as soon as possible. I went in the middle of the day. Was the only customer. Friendly, fast service. Got three tacos: chicken, fish and steak. Healthy portions. But just average. Didn't blow me away at all. Same taco you can get anywhere in town (and I've been in Cabo for 5 weeks.) All of the Beatles memorabilia covering the walls (and I do mean covering) is interesting. Supposedly the owner, if he's in the mood, belts out a few tunes. Not this time. But I'm sure the crowd of one isn't very appealing. Anyway, like i said, nothing special. Just average.

I had read several raving reviews and took the long walk to this place. Oh boy, was I disappointed. Authentic tacos and tortas are not supposed to taste like this!! This is not authentic Mexican food.
The ingredients taste old and the food does not taste fresh at all. I got shrimp tacos and they were not fresh at all, my hubby got a milanesa torta and he was like "I don't understand what the buzz is about", and I agreed.
