The big man is back! Stopped in for our usual, and everything's still as it was, a hole in the wall with great tacos! Can't beat the pricing either! This is a must experience while in Cabo!

We first went to Gordo Lele's 4 years ago and this was a must visit during our recent trip. The tacos are still amazing!! The shrimp and beef tacos are our favorite. We will continue to visit every time we come to Cabo.

Best tortas and tacos in Cabo. Small menu, everything is amazing, 2 tacos will usually do it. He marinates the meats and sets them aside from even the most talked about spots on the beaten path.

I had read a lot of reviews on this place and how great Javier was. I was disappointed when we got there and Javier wasn't there. This was in January, he was visiting a sick friend in northern Mexico. The food was still good, but the experience wasn't what I was expecting. Hopefully he will be there this next trip!

I've been traveling Baja for two weeks now, and found my favorite shrimp tacos here. The torta my boyfriend had was also amazing. This is a hole-in-the wall place that feels very local - this is not a fancy place catering to tourists- this place is the real deal. The owner is the cook and waiter, and is a sweet... More

If your wondering what Cabo was like before it became a worldwide destination visit Gordo Lele's. You will find the warmest, kindest,most humble individual who aims to please his longtime customers. The tacos are handmade by Javier and he is a gracious host. The shrimp tacos are to die for as are the chicken. You wont find a cheaper meal... More

Great tacos, very reasonable, with great atmosphere.....ok, it depends on your idea of "great atmosphere". It has alot of character and Javier still makes the best tacos! Great family time in cabo and wouldn't be the same without a trip to Gordo Lele's!

What can I say -hard to time finding it but I used my GPS small little sign on top figured it out. Very small sort of like a mom-and-pop kind of deal. Really a hole in the wall. Scary at first. But the wife and kids loved the tacos especially the chicken. I couldnt really enjoy of the because anxiety.

We were a party of 8 so we pretty much took almost every seat in the joint. It's a little hole in the wall but hey Javier makes great taco's for cheap. Don't let the interior deter you. It was a great experience for us :)
